Closer/Unknown Pleasures/Still [12 inch Analog]

Peter Saville Designed Vinyl Boxset x 3 Vinyl Album's Original artwork unspoilt by label copy. Issued on 180gm Vinyl for the first time in 20 years. Joy Division's hugely influential back catalogue will be re-issued for the first time in 20 years on 180gm vinyl, and in a special Peter Saville designed three-vinyl box set. This is a rare and unrivalled Joy Division release that pays full testament to their artistic and musical legacy. The re-issues coincide with the release of Control, Anton Corbijn's biopic of tragic Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, who killed himself on 18 May 1980; two days before the band were to embark on their first tour of America.
While I understand the "total redux" concept employed by the makers, the patently incorrect product info will anger many - and lead to quite a few boxes being returned! I for my part will hang on to this - but only for profitable resale at some later date.
If you are looking - as I was - for facsimile vinyl copies of the original Factory Records editions, then don`t fall for this (very expensive) set - you will need to get the individual releases!
Why, finally, even the sticker on the box`s shrink wrap reads "all in original artwork" is absolutely beyond me, as this is clearly untrue.
