Hmm, how can I add this to my collection? It's a valid release, each 12" single was re-released weekly with the box available for purchase, which I've still got.

I have the box set of vinyl. It used to be listed here but obviously the way it was released fell foul of how Discogs likes things. Which I guess is understandable.
Was good fun collecting the records and sending the vouchers though. I've seen it go for some pretty high sums, which is nice from an owners point of view.
