Genesis: New special edition vinyl version of first album available.


Not Bad Records has released a Vinyl-Boxset for the Record Store Day which is very interesting for Vinyl collectors. The boxset contains the album in gatefold sleeve design in two versions (mono and stereo). A third LP contains rarities, singles and demos and there are also the three singles included in 7" Promo sleeve style. In addition, a 12-page booklet with some words by Chris Welch is also part of the set. There are only a thousand copies available and it seems unclear whether or not the set will be available in standard online shops such as amazon. Not Bad Records offers the set on their website (see below).
