OK Computer OKNOTOK is a reissue of the 1997 album OK Computer by the English alternative rock band Radiohead. It was released in June 2017, the album's 20th anniversary, following the acquisition of Radiohead's back catalogue by XL Recordings from EMI in 2016. The album is remastered and includes B-sides released on OK Computer singles, plus three previously unreleased songs: "I Promise", "Man of War", and "Lift".

The reissue includes bonus tracks (three previously unreleased) and completely remastered versions of the album tracks. It was released on June 23, 2017 digitally, as a double CD set, and a triple LP pressed on 180 gram vinyl. The expanded box set includes a triple LP, as well as a C90 cassette mix tape compiled by the band and taken from the OK Computer session archives and demo tapes.

Album · 1997 · 23 Songs. The centerpiece of OKNOTOK’s second set of unreleased tracks and B-sides, it’s a startlingly beautiful snapshot of the band’s ridiculous post-The Bends, OK Computer-era potency. Elsewhere, Lift is another glistening gem from the vaults and Meeting in the Aisle provides a reminder of the band’s haunting way around an instrumental. A remastered OK Computer, meanwhile, remains the foreboding masterpiece it ever was. OK Computer OKNOTOK Radiohead.

Twenty years on, Radiohead revisit their 1997 masterpiece with a deluxe reissue. The bonus material includes familiar B-sides and a few previously unheard recordings that hint at an intriguing road not taken. It’s unclear what happened to that album. OK Computer obviously wasn’t it. But there has always been a tantalizing alternate-history version of Radiohead’s third LP lurking behind the finished product. Their sessions weren’t exactly a deep-dive into hell, despite the record’s now-concrete reputation as a piece of digital-age prophecy.

OK Computer offered an eerily clairvoyant vision of digital angst and alienation. In 1996, during sessions for their third album, Radiohead recorded a track called Lift. Like much of their new material, it had first been performed during a disastrous American tour that same year, supporting Alanis Morissette. But unlike the other new songs Radiohead had played, Lift had gone down well. Listening to it on the 20th anniversary reissue of OK Computer, you can see why: it is blessed with an immense, air-punch-inducing chorus. The thing is, Lift is on the second disc, the one filled with B-sides and outtakes

Hi. I could use some help. I purchased what I thought was the EU version. On the back jacket it clearly says printed in the EU. However the labels all say 'Made in N.A.'. Has anyone encountered this? The audio has tons of clicks and pops.
Compared to the XL Reissues and the earlier Warner/EMI pressings from 2013 and 2008 this anniversary edition sounds better to me. The other ones are very punchy, some hiss on the heights, very heavy bass. This seems more pulled back and overall more balanced. Just be aware that it is not an accurate reproduction of the 90s press. The sides are named differently, no messages in runout grooves, slightly changed packaging (without lyrics!)… The bonus disc is okay but forgettable in my book with unevenly mixed b-sides at varying volume levels that sound more like from The Bends. Ok Computer is still a very unique Radiohead album that sounds like nothing they made since and before it and that is quite anstonishing because Ok Computer is the most Radiohead-sounding Radiohead album. I would recommend this edition if you are somewhat unsatisfied with the version you own. Sound-wise it's great!
Here is a link to the vinyl reviews vinyl quality review of this specific pressing: https://vinylreviews.com/album/ok-computer-oknotok-1997-2017/
Excellent in every way, except for not including Lyrics (!) nor Tracklist on each side of the records... wtf? Anyone knows why this may be? I am tempted to write them down myself in hand!
This is the definitive edition. If you're deciding between this and the previous 2xLP, get this one.
The album is great, we all know it. This 3LP behemoth edition is quite good, it sounds amazing and the packaging is great and rich and detail. Of course, not all the B-Sides are good (Ehemm, "Melatonin"), but I mean, which band in the WORLD makes B-sides as good as "Man of War" and "Polythelene"? That's Right, only the best band ever, and that is Radiohead.
Great artwork, sounds great but where are THE FU**ING LYRICS?!What is the point of having an LP with all the physical benefits of holding a true masterpiece in your hands and not being able to read the lyrics?Pretty disappointing...
3Lp black vinyl. U.K. 2nd pressing from waste. Sounds good (after cleaning) excellent stereo separation good quality pressing. Nice packaging with reworked artwork from the singles etc. No poly lined sleeves though. Giving the sides stupid names (sky, skip blue etc) makes it really annoying and hard to know which side you are playing... I'm going to write a-d on mine in felt tip.
Just perfect. The pressing...The sound...This is the very best album I ever heard.
I ordered a black 3xLP copy from WASTE on July 1st. I contacted WASTE after the order seemed to be going no where and I was told that due to huge demand the European first pressing was sold out and that they were waiting for a second European pressing. They were expected the second pressing on August 4th. Just to let anyone know who may have ordered it recently from them.UPDATE: I have received my copy and with the exception of one of the upper corners of the sleeve being dinged up in transit it is perfect. All three discs are flawless. They are some of the best new vinyl I have purchased in a long time. Flat, perfectly centered and silent. No pops or crackle. Just lovely. Optimal really knocked it out of the park with this one.I think the remastering job is very sympathetic in my opinion. The third disc of b-sides and unreleased tracks is a brilliant addition. It is great to finally have them on vinyl. Barry (Bazza)Grint did a great job cutting the vinyl and he confirmed to me on Twitter that he cut the vinyl at half speed.All in all I highly recommend the EU edition of this release for the quality of the vinyl. The quality of the music goes without saying. 10 out of 10.
There seems to be a few batches out there where they've mistakenly included two copies of LP2 and no LP3 which includes the B sides etc. I unfortunately managed to pick up one of these copies today - so if you're able to, double check your copy before making a purchase.
I have your same problem (bought my copy online and wasn't able to double check it). Have you contacted them to request for the missing vinyl?
no no no no no no no no no no no no there's no lyrics (printed on the sleeve at all)
In the Deluxe version the lyrics are printed in the back of the art book.
thank god for the black vinyl version and not the baby poo blue version. The black vinyl is quiet and pressed perfectly. sounds great as well.
Half a kilo of dead flat, super clean vinyl. No fingerprints or paper insert residue.Dead silent in the fadeouts and quiet moments, no noise or pops that aren’t supposed to be there.I would have listened to the CD hundreds of times over the years, and there are little bits here and there I’ve never heard before. This is the best I’ve ever heard this album, the separation and clarity are simply quite lovely.
Same, so familiar with the cd version so upon hearing this recording and hearing little bits i'd never heard before is amazing!
the separation and clarity is unreal.. i was worried about this but its amazing.. wow. my fav album all over again!!
How does it sound, any good with the pressing quality here?
the remaster/remix is AMAZING..this is my fav album ever.. listened to it more than anything else .. and this remaster is breathtaking!
