Depeche Mode 12" Singles Collection vinyl


Depeche Mode 12" Singles Collection vinyl

Postby obs » Thu Aug 23, 2018 2:12 am

Has this been mentioned here?

I just saw these listed at Amazon. Seems they're a series of vinyl boxsets compiling the 12" singles for each album. First two are coming out August 31. $60+ CAD :-o or $54 USD, even more :-o

Speak and Spell
- includes a facsimile reproduction of the rare Flexi Disc “Sometimes I Wish I Was Dead” b/w “King of the Flies” (the Fad Gadget track as on the original release)
https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DQ963QD/

A Broken Frame
- original single poster reproduction (never heard/seen this before)
https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DQ31ZY6/

I did post in these forums years ago that they should reissue the 12"es instead of reissuing the albums again and again and again :-) .

It would be cool if the outer jacket was the 12" artwork, and the inner was the 7" artwork. It's a shame they didn't include the tracks from the 7"es on these. I guess it would be too much, depending on how they plan on doing future boxsets. (eg. Will they combine the 12" + L12" on a single vinyl?)

the problem with this is 'dreaming of me', was never a 12 inch (even though there's an unreleased extended mix).

so you're not really getting the real 12 inches, also some had alternate artwork for different regions, etc.

they're pricey, so i'll just wait until they go on sale someday.

later

I just opened my box sets.

The Sometimes I Wish I Was Dead fexi disc is thicker than the original version.
The posters, although folded in half, cry out to be framed. I will look into doing this.
The labels are reproduced like the originals except on the Leave In Silence 12", where the red ink for the titles on the labels is glaringly too bright to read.
I cannot take them home to play them until tomorrow (street date), but I'm sure they will sound wonderful.

I will purchase every one of these box sets, even though I own every original Depeche Mode 12 inch, but will stop listening to them with the Exciter release.

obs, if these sell enough copies, I'm sure there will be a 7" version forthcoming.

This is my crack.

Scans up at Discogs already.

Nice work on making them look like the originals. Is the "Leave in Silence" jacket textured?

Yeah, the posters are cool. They should make all those promo posters available individually. I would pick up some of them, especially one for Black Celebration. Probably one from the Construction Time Again era, as well. One thing I regret was not having bought a UK or DE vinyl pressing of Construction Time. I love the black, with yellow icon. Cheapshit Canadian vinyl, of course, only had a black and white inner sleeve.

I'm surprised they didn't reprint all the 12" promo posters and included one at random :-D .

EDIT// "Leave in Silence" IS textured. There are unboxing videos of each set on YouTube. Too lazy to find the links again, but just search for Depeche Singles unboxing and they should come up. They were uploaded by the official DM account.
