My copy of this has the correct labels on the records, reflecting the actual track list of this edition (same as the box set) - so not all labels are misprints! But the back cover indeed has the original 1998 order, incorrect for this edition.

Has anybody received their copy from the Bella Union Bandcamp store yet? I placed an order on the 18th June and nothing has arrived yet.

My copy is a rather poor pressing of the first two LPs with quite a lot of pops and clicks and a minor scrape (unfortunately in a quiet passage). The live set seems a bit better. Bella Union should be ashamed of only offering a 160k mp3 download though.

Same issue but other way around - disc one of my live set has some scrapes which make pops - 1 minute of regular light popping at the start of E2 is the worst of it, a really quiet passage. You can't feel them, but under light, they're there. Other discs aren't so bad, more random pops and clicks than should be the case though for a premium pressing, and a bit of background ruffling on the last side of the main album. Glad to have mine still, box and extras are lovely, actual sound is nice, it's a signed copy too, and there's nothing that'll stop me listening to it, but still, it irks. As you say, some flacs might not have gone amiss either.

I think the issue may well be the tough black paper inners - the edges are sharp, the insides are a bit rough, enough for packing and transport to take its toll perhaps: I replaced with poly inners to try to limit any further scrapes.

A final note: I have just bought the Touch and Go repress released on the 16th: same track order interestingly, even though the back shows it as the original order - the hope of getting the original order was the main reason I bought it! On the plus side, its extremely clean and clear, not a single pop: same for the Cinder repress released a few weeks ago. Both come with those lovely rubbery inners (remind me of the ones you used to get on late 70s Windham Hill pressings), which may be no coincidence.

Not as yet, was just told it was definitely happening. Probably on black vinyl I’d assume.

The live set with Nick Cave at All Tomorrow's Parties festival was performed in 2009, not 2005 as stated in all the promotions for Record Store Day.
