25 CD EP's based on Simple Minds original 12" single releases.
The box includes five 5-disc multifold Digipak sets, each forming a cross when unfolded.
Volumes 1 to 4: originally released in 1990, as four separately sold Digipak sets, each containing 5 CD EP's.
Two corrections have been made:
1.On the original 'Theme 3' CD EP from 1990, track 3-2 was mistakenly the album version; this reissue from 2008 contains, as originally intended, the 12" instrumental version.
2.On the original 'Theme 7' CD EP from 1990, track 7-1 was mistakenly the album version; this reissue from 2008 contains, as originally intended, the 12" version.
Volume 5: previously unreleased.
Since Volume 5 has also been available separately, it carries an individual barcode number - unlike the other four sets.
There are no track durations given on the release.
The individual box set catalogue number for 'Themes - Volume 2 : August 82 - April 85' is incorrectly given as "5099921646225-1" instead of "5099921646225-2" on the set spine.
