We have two copies of the box set for two winners. The collection’s valued at $205. It’s limited to 2,500 copies:
The deluxe Blinking Lights package includes 3 LPs of the critically acclaimed album on vinyl for the first time with a fourth disc that is an exclusive 17 track live album, Manchester 2005, recorded shortly after the release of Blinking Lights. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, the 4 LPs each have their own covers, rice paper dust sleeves, and are accompanied by a hardback book of lyrics and photos, all housed in a beautifully crafted box that is numbered and begrudgingly signed by the author himself, EELS leader E. The edition is limited to only 2,500 copies and will be sold in order of lowest cover numbers first, 0001 – 2500. And this is not a fake signature like the ones often found on eBay.
To prove the point, here’s E signing one of the sets:
This is what it looks like:
Each winner also gets a copy of a poster featuring E and his dog Bobby, Jr. (who you might remember from the “That Look You Give That Guy” video). It’s 22″ x 28″ and you’ll have this to look at:
