6 x 12" Singles faithfully reproduced from original artwork and audio masters.

Get The Balance Right!
Everything Counts
Love In Itself
Original and Special Edition versions of each title

Includes reproduction of original marketing poster & digital download code.

All live tracks were recorded at Hammersmith Odeon on the 25th of October 1982 by Mobile One.

The spines of the individual records use the following titles:
Get The Balance Right!
Get The Balance Right! • And Live Tracks
Everything Counts
Everything Counts • And Live Tracks
Love In Itself•3
Love In Itself•2 • And Live Tracks

All records play at 45 RPM, except for the "Live Sides" (B-side of records 2, 4 and 6) which play at 33 RPM.

Track durations are taken from the back insert.
Track 1-B2 and 2-B4, despite being the same song recorded at the same show, do not actually have the same duration - 1-B2, being the sole live track on that release, has some fade in with crowd noise, and fades out later, containing more of the intro of the following song at the show, Nothing To Fear, which can be found in its entirety as 4-B3.
Love In Itself was remixed for the single release (hence the title Love In Itself • 2), but the original 7" version fades out before reaching the 4 minute mark, so 6-A (and to my knowledge, the first track on all previous editions of the "Special Edition" of Love In Itself) is a slightly longer version of the remix.

Side B of record 1 only mentions credits for the studio track, but appears to refer to both tracks.
Track 2-B1 also includes the concert intro Oberkorn (It's A Small Town), played as the first part of a medley with My Secret Garden.
Track 4-A is the album version of Everything Counts instead of the 7" version (which fades out earlier to keep it under 4 minutes).

Anyone else has Trouble with the download code? Mine is not working at all.

Frankly, the most expensive price for the most inconsequential album of the 80s. I'll skip it until I can get on for less than $50.

Hi there,

Excuse me from posting in each box set, but I am looking to see where I'll get a response from first. In regards to the box, I am not really interested in the box or bonuses besides the singles themselves. So my question is, should I purchase the original releases, or are these the better purchase?


December 26, 2018
I've got a mispress of the LBONG2 in this Box ... there ist the Get Balance Right 7" on both sides. Somebody else?

Attention to detail is incredible on these re-creations. You can quibble about the master and servant limited edition cover not being glossy and the love in itself front photo not as sharp an image but the 3 live 12” are superb . The detailing on the gold and the texture is spot on. I also think it’s great how there’s no additional info on the vinyl or covers like “2017/2018 Sony “.
