What is the rarest Manics record of all time?

Earlier today, I spotted someone posted a link somewhere (think it was Manic Street Mania) for a copy of Suicide Alley on sale on ebay.

Now, I've seen a couple of copies of this floating about over the years and one day I will be stupid enough to spend a load of cash in getting one, just not today.

But it got me thinking, what is the rarest Manics record of all time? I'm guessing that it is Feminine Is Beautiful - but I might be wrong. Has anyone on here got either Suicide Alley or Feminine Is Beautiful?

I don't have either, but I've got a UK Channel Boredom stashed away that I;m dead chuffed with. Especially when Bradders told me he doesn't even have a copy of it.

The ebay post was on Delirium on Helium.

You can find the record HERE.

I was once in communication with a bloke who said he had a 9" acetate version of Motorcycle Emptiness... never seen mention of that, or anyone selling one, since.

Someone was selling a copy of the New Art Riot tapes a little while ago, plus the guitar that Richey smashed in the studio. But what I was getting at, rather than than rare versions, was actually rare records that were released as a run - if that makes sense?

There was the 12" that the band did for the Channel 4 programme called On Track. I think 100 were pressed and given out as a competition though some made it onto ebay, I think, about 2 years ago ( I managed to get one) at a very reasonable price.

Other then that there are various promos where the quantities are uncertain. Symphony Of Tourette, is that a few hundred or maybe? theloveof website mentions a Black Garden/ No One Knows promo 12" which I don't think I've ever seen come up anywhere.

Edit:
Also there thats Secret 7" with NSAF that will be limited to 100 copies.

So jealous! Would love that version of Tsunami.

I managed to get one too! To be honest I didn’t even know what it was or how rare it was at the time and just bought it, glad I did though!

I’ve got an Australia Lionrock remix white label that has a feedback sheet in there saying it’s only being sent to 20 DJs. That must be bollocks though, seen it come up far more often than Feminine Is Beautiful.

Man, I miss record collecting. I had to stop when I went to university and had barely any disposable income. Then never really got back into it due to moving house and never getting around to buying another turntable.

I have a pretty decent Manics collection but nothing especially rare I don't think. I'm not up to speed on what is rare anymore. I remember finding the Verses From the Holy Bible flexi-disc in a charity shop for about 25p as they had no clue what it was. And my Masses Against the Classes 10" has a relatively low number on it, I think (all my vinyl is in storage and I haven't been through it in over a year).

I worked in a second hand record shop for a few years between leaving school and going to uni and apparently the week before I started working there, would have been early 2000, some geezer came in and sold his entire Manics collection. Of course it was all gone by my first day. I could have literally got everything they'd done up to that point for next to nothing. My boss loved winding me up about that!

My Christmasses all came on one day during my time there though when someone brought an absolutely mint collection of everything Joy Division had ever put out. It made up for missing out on the Manics stuff a bit.

I was thinking about that one. I sometimes wonder where people get the numbers for these. Like Canadian Truth picture CD singles I think at one point were said limited 12 copies of each, then I think I saw 200 some other time.
