Originally due to be released in late 2011, but was delayed for over a year due to multiple issues with Universal fixing problems with the USB stick.

The 12″ x 12″ boxed set opens to reveal:
Unique J-shaped 8GB USB stick, containing all 12 studio albums (plus the non-album ‘Best Of’ tracks) in both high fidelity 16-bit FLAC and 320kbps MP3 formats—apart from the 2010 mini-albums, which are included in all their original 24-bit for the first (and possibly only) time. The stick also holds 24 promotional videos in MP4 format, ready to watch on your computer and transfer to your mobile devices for portable viewing.
Three CDs: one of live rarities from 1982 to the present, one of studio rarities including home-recorded demos from the early 80s, and a third CD combining 2010’s superb mini-albums The Morning After and The Night Before on one disc.
CD02-17 is unlisted in the sleeve.
DVD of the long-deleted Come Home Live video originally released in 1991, featuring 15 tracks from the legendary homecoming show at GMEX in 1990
Heavyweight 180gram vinyl LP featuring four previously unreleased demos from the Gold Mother era, housed in a special gatefold sleeve along with the four discs, a 16-page A5 booklet of sleeve notes written by the band, with contributions from fans, friends, peers and partners in crime.
12×12 scrapbook filled with rare and unseen photos, memorabilia, press cuttings, and many other items straight out of the band’s personal archives, as well as a an annotated timeline.
Four art cards, four button badges, four sticky-backed satin replica backstage passes
The first 500 box sets ordered via the Universal Box Set Store will include a 12″ square piece of artwork signed by all seven band members. ALL pre-orders through Universal included a complimentary instant download of three extra unreleased demos – Dust Motes, Make For This City, and Lookaway.

The USB audio tracks listed are available in both FLAC and MP3
