Limited edition of 600 numbered copies. The box is serially numbered on a card insert (certificate). The insert lists the year as 2011, but this was not released until March 2012.

    Anyone have a problem with all the records being warped? I thought maybe heat did it during shipping but then I read another person here at Discogs say they have the same issue.
