Paranormal Stories 12" Vinyl Box Set
2022, Ear Music, 0218163EMU
This European vinyl box set features 180 gram picture vinyl copies of the previously released Paranormal, A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper and Detroit Stories in gatefold sleeves. Packaged in a sturdy box featuring a unique image of Alice with cane on the front, it was limited to 1,250 hand-numbered copies (of which mine is #213, I think!). Initial copies were exclusively available in Germany only in September 2022, but a full worldwide release followed on 25h November 2022.
Paranormal and Detroit Stories both feature striking all-new picture vinyls, which are based on the original promotional images from each album. A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper, however, is the same as the original picture vinyl release of 2018. The gatefold sleeves of all three albums are identical to the original releases except that they feature alternative hype stickers and barcodes.
Also included is an exclusive poster featuring the same image as the front of the box.
As with Ear Music's previous Treasures release, this is a nice set, but all three albums have been released on vinyl several times before. With an initial retail price of over £80, it didn't really offer particularly good value-for-money either. With this in mind, this set is for hardcore fans only as it offers little of significance.
