The Human League offer to replace incorrect Anthology booklets

The Human League / A Very British Synthesizer Group box set
The anthology was issued last week

The Human League have apologised to fans for a printing error on the 3CD+DVD edition of their new anthology and have promised that replacements will be issued.

The band posted a note on their facebook page to say that they were “extremely sorry” that there has been a printing error on the outside back sheet and booklet of the initial batch of the four-disc set of A Very British Synthesizer Group which has an incorrect running order for the DVD – it should say that it contains 24 BBC performances, not 25 as listed.

The group go on to say that the record company (Universal) will send fans replacement booklets and back sheets at their expense, regardless of where they live.

Any SDE readers who aren’t aware of this offer and want to take it up, need to send their name and address to [email protected] with THE HUMAN LEAGUE in the email header.

This fault only affects the 3CD+DVD and was apparently caused by the printer using the wrong file, rather than it not being proof-read properly.

A Very British Synthesizer Group is out now.
