So, there were a 1,000 numbered copies in the US, and then another 2,000 in the rest of the world? Seems like most copies mentioned here are numbered - so what about the other 2 grands? Not that 3,000 is that great of an amount, but seeing that 374 users Own This (and there's probably 10% who do NOT own it, they just mark their collection for whatever reason)

Will this ever get a repress? Even just a standard 2xLP of the album would be spectacular!

This is still the only way to hear this on vinyl and unfortunately it is very expensive. It does probably qualify as a genuine collectors item, being limited to 1000 copies and a real work of art. Yes, the package is very well designed and beautiful and most importantly, the vinyl sounds incredible, way superior to the CD in my opinion, with many sounds revealing themselves here for the first time.

The Information is probably my favourite Beck LP. He sounds very natural here, not trying to imitate or reference other people for once. The songs are amongst the best and most affecting he ever wrote in my opinion with some beautiful melodies and harmonies, and while there is a great deal of sonic experimentation and complexity to the production, it never sound superfluous or gets in the way of the songs. This is the only LP of Beck's that doesn't have any tracks I want to skip over.

Just got the box set and love it. Looking forward to some quality listening with a drink. I do have a vinyl single that was made in england i bought many years ago. It came with its own sticker set. Can't find any information about it on here. Anyone got a lead for me?

Given how few copies here have been added to people's collections (320), I'm dubious if there really are 3000 in existence. Anecdotally, about a quarter to a third of these kinds of collectables get registered here on Discogs, so 1000 feels about right.

This deluxe release is worth purchasing just for the sticker sets alone! Very cool artwork. I want to use them. Smack them on my phone 'n' stuff. But I want to keep my collection 'complete'. Lol. Maybe I'll buy a second copy. Oh the music is great too! haha

I got an unsealed copy- the 10" LP had a bit of PVC damage- the main album is fine- The spine to the collection has a terrible while sticker on it that looks temporary but it will mess up the casing if I remove it- Great Album- most underrated Beck album-

Does anyone else have that spine sticker and were they able to take it off?

My copy writes inside the box foiled number 368/1000. So, 1000 or 3000 copies...???...???
