Rare 7-inch single that was the first piece of vinyl, and first single, released by Arcade Fire. It comes with the 7" in a paper sleeve. The cover is a tri-fold on cardboard-like paper. Originally came with an insert dedicating this single to Will and Win's grandparents, a quill pen sticker and an insert that reads: 'Coming September 14th on Merge Records...FUNERAL The Arcade Fire's debut full-length album'.

I was just asking as I have this. Bought when it came out. I didnt get a sticker.

When I asked Merge I was told the US distributor (Merge) did not include the quill sticker, whereas the Canadian in-house AF team inserted the quill sticker. In all other respects the release does not differ. Accordingly my copy obtained from Merge US has no quill sticker. This highly prized release was also available in the UK, I'm not sure if they received the quill sticker insert in those copies?

The 'crack' is that this is the crown jewel of any Arcade Fire Collection. It was the first 7" released by the band, there were only 1500 pressed (it has never been repressed). The single is in a tri-fold wrap around sleeve in a poly over sleeve. It also comes with a small info sheet about Win Butler's grandparents (they were also musicians - and are featured as the Alvino Rey b-side). VERY RARE copies also came with an even more limited 'quill pen' sticker. I have just acquired one of the latter so will be advertising my sticker free copy (which is mint) here or elsewhere soon. The crack is this is a BEAUTIFUL collectors piece! Expensive but well worth it if you are a big fan...
