The Wall Singles Box Set - Pink Floyd - 7 Inch 2011
The three singles are:
'Another Brick In The Wall (Part II) / 'One Of My Turns'
'Comfortably Numb / Hey You'
'Run Like Hell' / 'Don't Leave Me Now'
It is a very nice release and a good collectible for Pink Floyd collectors. There is a very nice trick when you open it and it looks like you are removing some bricks from the wall. The box itself has the cover art of 'The Wall' album. The official data from the Record Store Day website says there are only 7500 copies made for US and 4000 copies made for international distribute (11500 overall). Since my copy is numbered 11651 and was ordered from the US, and I also saw a copy numbered over 14000, I guess there are more copies made and some were reserved for certain stores and other sources.
