All copies supplied factory shrinkwrapped, with another shrinkwrap bundling CD and book together. The CD cardsleeve itself features no barcode, a sticker on bundle shrinkwrap is printed with barcode and catalogue number for book + CD bundle.
Given customers have had various production gripes with the vinyl edition (warps etc), it's strange there aren't any reviews of this CD edition yet. I too would rather have had a nice vinyl edition of this, but . . .
That said, this book and CD is a great item to have. The interviews are interesting and it's a neatly designed package to house the CD in overall. Everybody has different PSB favourites, I lean towards the soppy side of Pet Shop Boys and like The Forgotten Child.
