Thanks Cunha – this stupidly took me ages to figure out. Head over Heels IS included in the box set TWICE due to a weird format thing. That is a total of FIVE pieces of vinyl in the box: 1.) Garlands 2.) Head over Heels 3.) Treasure + 4 / 5.) Head over Heels double album with EP of Sugar Hiccup: Sunburst and Snowblind.

Just to make it clear for others:

Barcode (on VIN180LP024): 5 038622 123215 – for the actual box.
Barcode (on VIN180LP009): 5 038622 117719 – Head over Heels, double album version with second disc of EP of Sunburst and Snowblind included
Barcode (on VIN180LP010): 5 038622 117818 – Head over Heels, single album version
Barcode (on VIN180LP012): 5 038622 119416 – Garlands
Barcode (on VIN180LP018): 5 038622 123017 – Treasure

I don’t usually have multiple copies of things, But Cocteau Twins are amongst my favorite groups. And I actually have a couple of the gatefold Head over Heels in the box – so it got really confusing as I forgot how I bought them. So, I have seven pieces of vinyl in my box – yes, they fit OK.

I don’t have the Vinyl 180 sales sheet you mention for the Cocteau Twins box set, that would have clarified it with a simple glance. On one of the sales sheets I can see an image of the double gatefold album of Head over Heels which shows the Head over Heels double album inc the Sunburst and Snowblind EP as a second piece of Purple vinyl. (I don’t think this double gatefold edition of Head over Heels by Vinyl 180 is listed anywhere on Discogs and I have it.)

I also have a 'misprint' of this double album which I kept because the album cover misprint is so cool - there is a band of darker, metalic ink across the whole of the front cover which forms a beautiful mistake (but the sort of thing Vaughn Oliver did intentionally with his over-printing and splashed ink - so it may have been a short run experiment?). The image still shows clearly through this band of metalic ink; in a way it acts as a decorative band for the album title as the band perfectly frames the album text. I’d be interested to hear if anybody else has something similar to this.

Why is this box set listed as a 4LP + 1EP set: ie, a 5 x disc set? The track listing clearly lists Head over Heels twice as though the box contains two copies of Head over Heels - it doesn't.

The box has 3 x LPs and one EP.

How is the sound quality on these records? I have never listened to any albums by this record label Vinyl 180.
