Live In Brooklyn, NY 2009
Recorded and filmed at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg, 27th, 28th + 29th April.

Box set contents:
-"Special Moves" extended seventeen-track triple vinyl in a picture sleeve with printed inners
-ROCKACT48CD: eleven-track "Special Moves" CD + "Burning" DVD in a picture digisleeve

-a poster handsigned by the band
-MP3 download code card for the 6 exclusive vinyl bonus tracks in 320 kbps, 16bit/48kHz quality.

Track DVD9 is not listed on the digisleeve but appears as bonus feature on the DVD menu. It was originally published on the web by La Blogothèque (Back On Stages series), recorded at La Cartonnerie in Reims 2009.

This first print run of 1400 copies came with a signed poster. 850 units of it were made available via the band's website, 550 at selected UK stores. Further pressings came with an unsigned poster. Whether the poster is signed or not can be identified by the writing on back of the outer box: "SIGNED POSTER" vs. "POSTER".
There is also an European version with unsigned poster. That one can be identified by the different barcode and catalog number (ROCKACT48X) on the box.

wasn't it only the first 300 (total) that contained the signed poster? i'm quite sure thats what was stated on their website when i ordered. a google search isn't confirming any # though. discogs seems to be the source of the "550" # with any original source being long gone.

There's also a 2xLP version, with the DVD, but without CD and stuff.
