PICTURES: Rainbow / Singles box set
Rainbow‘s The Singles 1975-1986 box was released last week and here we bring you some photos of the set.
The box itself measures 13.5cm (h) by 14cm (w) with a depth of around 10.5cm. It’s slightly shorter than the recent Beatles US Albums set, but wider when sitting on the shelf. The lid lifts off to reveal 19 CDs in spined card wallets and a 30-page hardcover book which has notes (by Andy Francis) on every single in this set.
The card sleeves are not Japanese mini-LP CD quality, but they are the same size as most Japanese vinyl replicas, being noticeably larger than the ultra-low budget versions found in sets like Original Album Series. Also, every disc comes with a white inner sleeve so there should be no complaints about scratches.
Of course music-wise there is nothing here that the diehard Rainbow fan doesn’t already own, so it’s really just a nice-to-have-if-you’ve-got-the-cash collector’s set, like virtually all CD singles box sets.
The Singles Box Set 1975-1986 is out now.
