Economies of scale unfortunately... very few people will even buy a CD these days (or an MP3) so the number of people looking to buy the commemorative 2CD+book must be piddly...

I got mine and had no problems and it included the signed sleeve+signed print.

then I got a 2nd signed sleeve in the post the day after, now I have two signed sleeves plus the signed print.

What should I do with the spare signed sleeve?

I think we should send all the spare sleeves, signed or not, off to Jeremy Deller. He could 'create' something with them as a lockdown project!

More info - "The album is No.17 with 2,974 sales, its first chart appearance since that original 1993 run and its highest chart placing since its second week on sale. "

Pretty poor sales, but I guess the price had something to do with that. Had it been say, a tenner cheaper, I reckon a more sales would have come about. I've enjoyed listening to the album and the demos and b-s-sides on Spotify though thanks to my brother giving me access to his account Like I've said before, when it drops to about £30 or less I will buy it.

Seeing the low number of sales high charting albums have always surprises me.

I didn't buy it and probably won't until it goes below £20. Why they couldn't just do a normal release without a book baffles me - I appreciate it's all "part of the package" but the pricing has put a lot of people off.
