Notes

Heavyweight 180g vinyl pressings.
This version has a number printed on the back of the box.
A similar unnumbered version can be found here.

Included in the box set:
- USB memory stick in white rubber, shaped like the Portishead 'P', containing the album "Third".
- 2 x vinyl LP's containing the album "Third".
- 12" etched vinyl with the single Machine Gun (also released separately).
- Limited edition print from Nick Uff.

From box:
℗ 2008 Go! Discs Ltd. Under exclusive license to Universal Island Records Ltd. © 2008 Go! Discs Ltd. Under exclusive license to Universal Island Records Ltd.
Made in the EU.

Info regarding "Third/P3" memory stick:
(Comes sitting in a cut-out hole in a card tray about a centimetre thick.)
The Sky USB Drive is labelled "P3" when viewed on a computer. It has 1GB capacity, though the included content only fills 681MB. It contains five 4:3 aspect films in two formats, MPEG (.mpg) at 320×240 resolution, and Flash Video (.flv) at 720×576 resolution (Standard Definition in PAL broadcasting). There are two additional Flash Videos: "P3Logo" (P3 logo) and "P3USBBack" (P3 USB background).
The drive also contains the full "Third" album as 320kbps FhG (Fraunhofer Society) encoded MP3's, and an Adobe Flash Player 9.0 r115 (ver. 9,0,115,0) stand-alone program which allows you to play the 320kbps MP3's and the Flash Videos. There are also further resource files to aid the video title screen to work on both PC's and Apple Macs, and verification files for many Portishead country websites (see reason below).
In addition, when the "P3" Flash Player is played, as well as the 11 audio MP3 tracks and the 5 Flash Videos, the title screen includes a link to a website, this asks for an email address, uses files on the USB drive to verify ownership of a valid product, and then allows you to access additional online content (initially this was going to be from 1 July 2008, then delayed to start from 1 August 2008).

From "Third" 2 x LP's (vinyl & sleeves):
Records come in plain black inner sleeves.

From print:
(While each box set gets a single print of the same 12" size, there are many different prints across box sets.)

From Machine Gun 12" (vinyl & sleeve):
Vinyl is etched on the blank side, and comes in a plain black inner sleeve.

(Further info: Track A1, "Silence", was originally titled "Wicca". Its opening is a sample of Claudio Campos, a Capoeira master, speaking in Portuguese. He recites an adaptation of the Wiccan precept of the "Threefold Law" which translates back to English as:
"Be aware to the rule of thirds. What you give will return to you. You have to learn this lesson. You only receive what you deserve".)
