I noticed when I moved a couple months back that my SOS box is somewhat bent. I don't know what happened, I hardly every move the thing. On of my prints in the V&M box look a little worn and I don't think I've taken it out of the cellophane but once. So I feel the pain.
I discovered there was only 21 minutes of music on the second disc of my SOS box set, but when I brought it back to the shop, the guy said it was a manufacturing fault.
