    Quality design. Rubberised feel of box and solid inlay. Highlights are 7 inch embossed cover of OMD Electricity and double pack Factory sampler 7 inch. Wouldn't want to display prominently however as it could hurt the eyes!
    A little bit slight in terms of musical content- i suppose that's just how it is as it's the first 10 releases not helped by three fairly useless folded posters. Maybe first 12 releases would have been a better option with a couple of extra 12 inches. Hard back book would have been nice although not so important.

    Nice release, may be a little expensive but Factory addict I am so .... I bought it directly from Rhino. Unfortunately, booklet arrived damaged in the box. I asked to have only the booklet in replacment but Rhino wanted me to resend all the box !!?? So I did not ... BTW very nice packaging & Factory History pieces :)

    Disappointed. This does not sound like the original Factory version of OMD's Electricity to me. Can anyone else comment on this please.
    MusicToMyEyes's profile picture
    And now it's even better. I just ordered mine for £150 in their Autumn sale. Triffic.

    LOL @ all the parasites trying to sell this for 250 when it can still be bought direct from Rhino for 180...
    StardustAnomie's profile picture
    For anyone willing to sell the posters, especially FAC 1 (yellow), I’d be very interested.

    Incredible box, really beautifully made. Really the best label in the world!
