The Killers – Hot Fuss 7″ box set

Posted: August 22, 2011 in Vinyl

Even though there were 5,000 of these box sets pressed, this set is one of the harder Killers vinyl releases to get your hands on. Especially for a decent price. Most people selling this want outrageous prices for it, close to $500 outrageous. To be honest I don’t know or remember how much this box set originally sold for, but it probably was under $100, maybe even as low as $50. Now on to some more details about this nicely done box set.

As said above there were 5,000 copies pressed, with each being individually numbered with a silver foil stop on the bottom of the box. The set comes with a clear sticker on the front of the lid, basically a promo/hype sticker stating what is inside the box. The lid slides on and off, it is not attached to the box by a hinge. There are 11 7″s in the box, one for each of the 11 songs on the album. The album version is on the a-side of each 7″, with a b-side appropriately on the b-side. Some of these b-sides are exclusive to this box set, at least they were when it was first released. Many of them have subsequently been released on Sawdust, The Killers b-sides and rarities album.

All the records are pressed on black vinyl and come in their own jackets. All the records have pretty much the same label on the b-side, the only difference is the track listing for the respective 7″. The label on the a-side is the same as the artwork on the jacket for each 7″. For those interested here is a list of the b-sides included in this set in order of their appearance, so the first song appears as the b-side for the “Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine” 7″ and so on down the line.
