My ONE negative feedback is from a disgruntled seller who listed the item under the incorrect submission, refused to accept this error and also sent the record in thin, flimsy packaging that caused damage. Somehow, this was my fault! Everyone else I have bought from was pleased with their transactions with me and my feedback comments because they understood how to correctly list their items and knew how to package them to ensure safe transit. I gratefully thank those respectful people.

Interested in all things collectable (picture disc, coloured vinyls, boxed sets, promos etc.). Eclectic tastes from Disco and Hi-NRG to rock, pop, chart, indie, Celtic, ambient etc. etc!

Yeah. All WEA limited double pack 7" singles were merely two singles shrink-wrapped back to back and stickered. Sometimes the sticker would be on the shrink and sometimes directly on the sleeve under the shrink. It depended on the release. Examples... See full review

I'm assuming that this megamix is probably the same as that which appeared on the Swedish pink 12" of "Give Me Your Love"?

It might not be a vinyl rip on this collection:

Well not "disappointed" as such, because the 1972 song is lovely, but I assumed, like many I'm sure, that it would be the 1979 song that was included.

'Rare' doesn't always equate to high prices, and vice versa, it's more about desirability.

Yes I think it's a mid 80s pressing, it appears and 'feels' very much like the pressings that Line Records/TELDEC were doing at that time (Smiths white vinyl 12"singles for instance).
