Quick question to all hc collectors regarding this release:since i snagged the first UK UP cassette release still sealed ,i have an urge to keep new buys as such.the 40th ann. i would also like to keep as such but i am not sure to do so as it's tight fit celophane could damage its content over the years.i'ld be thankful for any advice to "what to do?"......
Best wishes-dmxi-

Where dothe number 30.000 come from?. I been followed the stock in the wearehouse of Warner records Europe and it been in stock two time. First time around 6500 and next time 3-4000.
So from what I could see around 10.000 made of this release.

To put it in perspective, the standard 2015 reissue has sold about 30,000 copies in 4 years.

Well well well...wait until 2020 and what will DEFINITELY happen then :
40th anniversary LIMITED ( sky is the limit, as you should know by now;after all it's Warners UK )
edition of CLOSER!
It's all about the money, isn't it ?

The textured surface of the new sleeve looks great & the vinyl is visually flawless, I'm lucky to have a couple of originals & this sounds as clear & loud as they do but my '40th Red' has a little surface noise on side 2 otherwise it's a cracking job done. Love how they pitched this as 'Limited' only to find out it's 30,000 though, quality marketing.

Already my favorite sleeve. An unexpected quality release, with incredible sound and unique sleeve.


June 20, 2019

Impressive sound quality for a repress and nice attention to detail with the sleeve. With 30,000 copies pressed, it can hardly be called a 'limited edition' but still a quality release.

It's a good pressing, clear and well presented.
Good addition to the collection.
Even though its Rhino not Factory.

Limited to 250,000? Haha I would be curious to know though.
If i never see this cover image used in marketing or on millennial's social media again I'm 1000% ok with that. :)
