Notes

©2013 Flex Music under license from Oval Music Ltd.
Handmade in London, England.

At the time of sale, it was not advertised that the set would be CD-R's, rather than factory pressed CD's. When the uproar began after buyers started receiving their sets, we were then given the excuse that CD-R's are what made the set possible, as the cost would have been too high for factory pressed CD's.

Many of the songs, including all of the Flex album tracks and various tracks on the Others CD, were sourced from compressed MP3 sources. Many buyers demanded refunds, and after a few were paid out, many others were left with non-responses and some have never received their money back for the sets they purchased and never received.

I ordered the reprinting, FLEX002 as well as the 2xCD featuring both mixes of "Stateless" a year ago and did not received either. Sometimes buying from the artist results in negative karma! I should have made this myself! At least I use MAM-A gold printable CD-Rs in my projects!

Meh.... If you didn't know it was handmade by the band themselves, you'd think it was some sort of a bootleg because the CD's are actually CD-R'S with stuck on labels, no album artwork for each disc, just a booklet with notes and lyrics. Oh, you also got a little badge and a keychain thingy that was supposedly made from pieces of Lene's costumes. New Toy isn't included here which is crazy since it's a box set.

Considered to be an 'indie' release of only 100 made and put together by Lovich's bandmates. This box set contains 4 discs which are actually CD-R's, with printed adhesive CD labels stuck on, a signed black and white glossy of Lene, a pin, a keychain made with bits of Lene's outfits, and a booklet with lyrics, photos, liner notes by Lovich and Stiff Records' Gordon Nelki. A few have said the sound quality of these 'remasters' is great, while others say not so great. Tracks missing from the box set include: "New Toy" (yes, believe it or not, it's not on here!) 'The Fly" (B-side to 'Angels'), the Japanese version of "I Think We're Alone Now", the first version of "Special Star" (from the "New Toy" EP), and a few other tracks.

This box set was limited to 100 copies that were hand made & assembled by the Lene Lovich Band and sold for £50 through their Facebook page.

The box set contains: 4 CD-R's: 'Stateless', 'Flex', 'No Man's Land' & 'Others' . The 'Others' disc consists of non-album tracks. Box also contains: a booklet with liner notes by Lene, with lyrics to her 3 albums, a badge, a signed photo of Lene from the Flex photo session and a keyring made from pieces of Lene's stage wear.

'New Toy' does not appear anywhere in this collection, apparently due to licensing reasons. Also, the version of 'O Seasons, O Castles' in this box set is an edited version that fades out, whereas the original vinyl version was slightly longer and had a cold ending. The full length version of 'O Seasons, O Castles' appeared as a b-side to the German vinyl pressings of the 'Blue Hotel' 7" single, and the Australian 7" vinyl single of "Maria".

All tracks have been previously released except for 'Alpha Girls'.
