Notes

Fan club only limited edition digitally remastered 6-CD single box set compiling all tracks from all of the singles supporting the Arcadia 'So Red The Rose' album, including non-album track 'Say The Word' written specially for the 'Playing For Keeps' film soundtrack.

The packaging is a red velvet box (humorously nicknamed 'so red the velvet') housing 6 CDs in card sleeves which faithfully replicate the original single sleeve artwork. Also included is an 8-page fold-out picture booklet of lyrics and biography.

Track 1-5 also known as the 'Fact And Story Mix'.
Tracks 4-5 and 6-17 are bonus tracks not listed anywhere on the artwork, CD label, or accompanying box set booklet.

These are 80's 12" Mixes and Rare Remixes recorded (unofficially) to CD audio format as EPs / singles.

The untitled track 5 on CD 4, "The Flame (Extended US Remix)", is the same as track 3, "The Flame (Extended Remix)", but only 5 seconds shorter and the recording quality is better.

Regardless of that fact, this is still a brilliant box set to collect, especially for a Duran Duran / Arcadia fan, or even an 80's buff. The recordings to CD audio quality are over-all very good to excellent and the packaging / booklet have been produced to a very high professional quality.

I bought this box set when it was fairly cheap (under £20 GBP / $40 USD). Now it is becoming a very rare collectable item and the price is rising quickly, but I still recommend it if you can get hold of a copy.

I hope this helps any potential collectors / buyers...
