With the sleeves being numbered how can bleep send out replacement sleeves? Will they be unnumbered ones? Didn't get mine from Bleep anyway but just curious. They're not gonna take numbered sleeves off other copies as they'll end with a stack of records with no sleeves and they can only have one of each number so it's a tricky 1.

Wonderful album and something I will treasure in my collection for many years. Unfortunately the cover of my copy is also in not perfect condition - crushed bottom right corner and crease on the top right corner. It was well packed by Bleep, so I suspect this damage happened before they received it. Maybe they were not stored well, or transported heavy handedly. Disappointing, but I will enjoy listening to it none the less.

I don't understand the remix(es) in this release. But so happy to have this piece of history -)

Does anyone know how the limited edition numbering is working on these?
On the Altern 8 Facebook page they have said it will be a run of 2000 numbered copies, but on Bleep (where I ordered it) they say it will be two numbered runs of 001 to 303 and 001 to 808.
So which is correct? Or are they both correct and there are different numbered runs for different suppliers?
When I asked on their Facebook page about a delay in delivery via Bleep, they said this:

"If you already ordered from our Bandcamp you will get your copy in the next few days, they have already been shipped.
All other shops are taking pre-orders but they won't be shipping until the distributor sends them copies in early October. We will hopefully have some more copies then as well - depending if the label agrees to press more (it's out of our hands!)"

This seems to confirm that there is also an unnumbered standard pressing, or there could be in the future.
I'm just hoping that Bleep don't send me an unnumbered copy because they got the release details wrong.
