The Collectors Box offers the complete insight into Alphaville's "Eternally Yours": It contains the double CD and the Colored Vinyl GOLD Edition bundled in one box. Additionally and exclusively in the Collectors Box you can enjoy "Eternally Yours" in immersive Dolby Atmos sound via the Alphaville USB stick. Furthermore - and for the first time ever in 15 years - the Eternally Yours MC allows you to hear Alphaville on cassette. A large-format booklet with a track-by-track description by Marian Gold, lyrics by author Max Dax and photographic insights into the recording provide further exciting insights into the album and the history of Alphaville. Also included is a hand-signed photo print. The whole box can be stored relaxed in the Alphaville jute bag.

€149,99 is a lot of money for such a boxset. But well, Alphaville always seems to be expensive, when it comes to boxset releases.

The vinyl version contains three more tracks, the F-side, than the cd version.

Big in Japan here:

Marian wanted it to sound like Wagner??? Complete flop, to my ears. Symphonic versions are good for rockers (Deep Purple started that strange tradition in 1970), not for synth poppers. Midge Ure with his Ultravox reworkings and Rational Youth proved it already. Why step into the same sh*t??

Interesting to hear your opinion.

I, for one, thought the what Midge managed to achieve there with Orchestrated has been absolutely amazing.
