Numbered, Limited Edition 3Disc With Flexi Disc Box Set!

Speak & Spell was the debut album from the electronic group Depeche Mode. This boxed set contains the singles from Speak & Spell on audiophile-quality 12" vinyl, with audio remastered from the original tapes and cut at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. The artwork for the exterior of the boxed set draws on street art iconography inspired by the original releases, while the vinyl sleeves themselves feature the original vinyl single artwork. Also included is a facsimile reproduction of the rare Flexi Disc "Sometimes I Wish I Was Dead" b/w "King of the Flies" (the Fad Gadget track as on the original release).

When Depeche Mode entered the scene with the release of the group's first single "Dreaming of Me" / "Ice Machine" on February 20, 1981, it laid the groundwork for one of the most transformative career paths in contemporary music. Depeche Mode combined elements of new wave pop, dance, rock, blues and electronic music to create emotional soundscapes for the future and the 12" vinyl single - with superior sound and deeper grooves favored by dance club DJs and fans alike - proved the perfect sonic medium for the band's sweeping vision. Depeche Mode realized the format's potential and embraced the power of 12" vinyl and the avenues of innovation it opened up. The 12" single allowed the band to explore new sonic possibilities while the physical beauty of the packaging gave Depeche Mode room to develop a sophisticated and commanding visual aesthetic. Depeche Mode used their singles discography as a means of offering left field remixes and other delights for their fans.

"Our 12" singles have always been incredibly important to the band," agreed the members of Depeche Mode. "It's great to be able to re-share these songs with old and new fans in the way they were originally intended to be experienced. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do."
