  1. Vick says:

    Thank you for the video. I had been waiting impatiently for my copy and it arrived last week. Mine came with the additional postcards of alternate sleeves for each single (available if you ordered at the start direct from Cherry Pop.

    I seem to remember that the original tracklisting didn’t include the instrumental of Showing Out (but i could be wrong) but that is now included which is great.

    I also have a very low quality MP3 single edit of the 2 Grooves Under 1 Nation mix of FLM which isn’t included but then i’m not sure if it was an official edit or a fan made one.

    The only other omission i have spotted is the album version of I’m The One Who Really Loves You with M&K vocals on the “I’m do do” part.

    Those are tiny gripes though, this is a fantastic collection and i haven’t stopped playing it all week!!!!

    Can you imagine a complete Kylie PWL singles collection in this format????

  2. Hit Factory Krazy says:

    Also…a Mandy Smith singles box! She was The Hit Factory’s version of Debbie Gibson!

    I just can’t wait!

  3. Hit Factory Krazy says:

    We now need a Boy Krazy singles box!

  4. Marko G. says:

    Since Rhythm Nation (single) multitrack leaked fairly recently, I’d say there were at least some copies made…

  5. James Giraffe says:

    I think it’s great, but one completely glaring (and I think unforgivable) omission is that there is no “track one from the UK 7″, track two from withdrawn US promo, track three from Smash Hits flexidisc, track four previously unreleased, etc, etc, etc”.

    That kind of info is pretty vital, I think!

    But the music and packaging is amazing. There are different vocals on some of the remixes of That’s The Way It Is, which I wasn’t expecting. Really good all round.

    • Justin says:

      Wholeheartedly agree with you. That’s always an exciting part of these sets, looking through the booklet after noting the *’s next to the mix title on the sleeve and finding out it is unreleased and from the vaults or was on a promo US 12″ or the like….. it’s a shame that this one omission from an otherwise excellent collection

  6. Robert Laversuch says:

    Received mine from Cherry Red this morning. Looks very nice. Excellent value for money, especially like with Belinda Carlisle or Bananarama it is cool to have all the remixes, B-sides etc in one place. Nice unboxing video, too.

    • Greg Daniels says:

      Still waiting for mine… ordered it AGES ago!

      • Greg Daniels says:

        It was supposed to arrive from Amazon today but did not. I got a message from them saying shipping would now be delayed UNTIL MID NOVEMBER!!! Unacceptable! I had to cancel the order. I am so pissed! I have been waiting for this box set ALL SUMMER, since it was first announced in June! What a bummer…

  7. Michel Banen says:

    Awesome looking box. I ordered my box from Cherry Red early september, hope they will ship it soon (ordered it with track & trace but no shipping confirmation yet).

    I have all Japanese Janet CD maxi singles from the Rhythm Nation album…. Let’s do a special edition Control first with ALL remixes / instrumentals / 7″ / 12″ / dubs etc and a blu-ray of the videos (preferable in a 5.1 mix). THAT would be worth it.

    For Rhythm NAtion a few home videos were released which could be included in a boxset as well (enhanced to blu-ray and 5.1)

  8. GARBAGE says:

    What happened to the Egypt Station unboxing video you mentioned a while ago, paul? I was looking forward to that.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I couldn’t bring myself to buy it. If MPL had sent me one then I would have done one :)

      • GARBAGE says:

        :-) Thought you would have cancelled when the 2 disc set was announced. I have to say I was relieved when they broke the news of the 2cd version.

  9. Brian of Nazareth says:

    I would totally agree about the Janet Jackson, but as I already have them all it would be utterly pointless!

  10. Anthony Oxley says:

    A Dead Or Alive singles box set, like this would be amazing,

  11. Shane says:

    Price seems quite low now, i dont remember i paid cherry for their version with postcards – i hope it was worth it!

  12. Chrissi says:

    in amazon germany so damm expensive…

  13. Dom says:

    I wish PSB would do something like this, at least for the ‘Imperial phase’ singles. There were so many vinyl, promo and foreign release only remixes, (not to mention completely unreleased ones) that have never seen CD release. Unfortunately Chris Lowe, in particular, doesn’t seem to keen on the idea

  14. ed says:

    Looks great and thankfully that terrible ‘new’ old song that was released a little while ago isnt on here!

  15. Daniel ( from Berlin ) says:

    thanks for the video paul. it shows how a singles box set should be. tons of remixes /
    unreleased versions / extra tracks. this “mel & kim” box set is a dream come true for me !
    this time is a fantastic music time, because i also love the forthcoming dollar box set very much.

  16. Jon says:

    My copy is arriving this afternoon and I’m in the US. I can’t wait!!

  17. smirkdj says:

    A&M/UMe should do a boxset like this of Janet Jackson’s United Nation(Rhythm Nation remix EP’s)instead of digital only!!!
    there is a market for this kind of things(see Paul Young’s fantastic singles box set,Bananarama,…)

    MISSED OPPORTUNITY!
