Deluxe edition 2CD + DVD

Defector is Steve Hackett's highest charting album in the U.K. (No.9). Released in 1980, it featured the same band as Spectral Mornings.

The deluxe edition features a new remaster of the album along with a CD of Steve Hackett's set at the Reading Festival in 1980. There is also a DVD which features a pseudo 5.1 Surround Sound Up-mix derived from the original stereo masters.

"After the opening snake charmer-like flute notes of "The Steppes," drums boomed out from the next door church we used as an echo chamber, sounding more pagan than C of E in spirit. I was still in love with this killer band
that had versatility tattooed all over... Whilst Spectral Mornings was a hard act to follow, Defector pipped it in the charts by going Top Ten!" — Steve Hackett 2015
