XTC Transistor Blast Outer Covers and Packaging

Is a four-CD mini-box set worth several posts? Absolutely!

Transistor Blast compiles the BBC Recording Sessions for XTC into a glowing, crackling box set that I picked up several years ago, used by dear by any calculation. The rush to convert the physical medium of music to a digital format saw many cash-strapped hipsters looking to dump their space-taking plastic products. I snatched up as many of these kinds of things as I could.

And who wouldn't? What a gorgeous package. Never mind the music--it's brilliant stuff, of course. The sheer design genius behind this package is what I'm here to explain. Well, explain? No. But I'll show you.

Have a gander at the other posts and you'll see how this package rates up there with my favorites.
