Extras - Near Mint (One of the inserts has a light gold ink transfers from one of the signed/inscribed covers - see the 11th photo - otherwise, all the extras are fine). This is the impossibly rare TEST PRESSING of the boxed set of Current 93 rarities & unreleased material, that was released in 2010, by Vinyl-On-Demand (VOD). Originally, being a Test Pressing, it would have been provided to the band, in plain white sleeves, with white labels, & not much else.
When auctioning this, David was able to provide most of the packaging, that went with the original release, so the 2 wooden boxes with red embossed artwork, and the cloth covered case, in which the boxes are housed, were all included. The booklets, inserts, handmade red paper poster, and 2 C93 badge pins were also included. In addition to the plain white sleeves, the beautifully printed record covers were also provided for all of the 12 LPs, and each cover was inscribed & signed by David Tibet, in a gold metallic pen. Being Test Pressings, the LP records are all pressed on black vinyl, and have blank white labels, with "Only for Promotion" printed on each record label.
But, David Tibet has hand-written the title of each record (on the'A' side), and also hand-written "Current 93" & "B", on each of the reverse label sides. The 7" single/EP, has the same labelling, as the 12" records, & the same hand-written inscriptions. Unlike the normal/or other editions (which were released on red vinyl), this has been pressed in Test Pressing fashion, on black vinyl, with white'promo' labels.Obviously, a spare printed cover was not available for the 7, so it was provided just with a standard white sleeve. I think that covers most of what I know, about this extremely rare Test Pressing box set. If someone is willing to pay, we will have a deal. If not, I will be more than happy to keep this incredibly rare, & collectable set.
If other items should sell, & I no longer need the funds - I will withdraw this set from sale. This is an incredibly rare & magnificent, fully signed Test Pressing box set, and is a must have for any true hardcore Current 93 fan.
