YOU ARE BIDDING ON A VERY LIMITED EDITION OFFICIAL 2013 RELEASE FROM ‘THE VINYL FACTORY’ OF ‘THE ELECTRIC BOX’ - THE PET SHOP BOYS ‘ELECTRIC’ ALBUM WAS SPREAD OVER 5 EXCLUSIVE ASSORTED COLOURED VINYL 12” DISCS THAT PLAY AT 45rpm IN AN EXCLUSIVE ‘FARROW’ DESIGNED MULTICOLOURED TRANSLUCENT PERSPEX BOX - THE PRODUCTION RUN WAS LIMITED EXCLUSIVELY TO JUST 350 EXAMPLES WORLDWIDE AND SOLD OUT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.
ONE OF THE DISCS IN EACH OF THE 350 BOX SETS WAS PERSONALLY SIGNED BY NEIL TENNANT AND CHRIS LOWE AND THE SIGNED DISC IN EACH SET ALSO SHOWED THE ISSUE NUMBER. THIS IS NUMBER 29 OF THE 350 SOLD (SEE PHOTOGRAPHS) WHICH SHOWS THAT IT WAS ONE OF THE EARLIER ONES TO BE ORDERED. THE PACKAGE ALSO INCLUDES AN INSTRUCTION SHEET AND COTTON GLOVES FOR HANDLING THE VINYL. THE DISCS ARE IN CLEAR PROTECTIVE PVC SLEEVES DELICATELY HOUSED IN SLOTS WITHIN THE BOX. THERE ARE ALSO PLAIN GENERIC SLEEVES INCLUDED WHICH THE DISCS WERE ORIGINALLY PACKED IN.
TO AVOID DAMAGE DURING TRANSIT I WILL REMOVE THE DISCS FROM THE DISPLAY BOX AND PUT THEM BACK IN THE ORIGINAL PAPER SLEEVES. THEY WOULD BE EASILY DISLODGED IN TRANSIT IF LEFT IN THE DISPLAY BOX.
I have owned this item from new, I originally opened and checked the issue number (29) on receipt, removed the discs from their paper sleeves (which are also included), arranged the discs in the display unit in the clear pvc sleeves provided and since then it has remained boxed as I realised I had no place suitable to display it without the possibility of it possibly getting damaged by strong sunlight or my grandchildren!! I have only opened the box today to take the photographs and re-check the issue number but the discs are unplayed and have only actually been handled once (using the included cotton gloves) when I originally assembled the unit.
Proof I am the only owner of this item are in the screenshot shown of a couple of emails I received at the time of pre-ordering.
This item will be posted in the U.K. via Royal Mail Guaranteed Delivery and will be fully insured.
