I guess if I was a serious collector I'd have all five shows complete (John might have them all?).
No, I'm not a serious enough collector either! I'm sure these days you can found them online somewhere

The tin-box collection, no rare tracks, but beautiful collectibles
Those tins look better than mine, which are definitely showing their age. Have you cleaned them?
No, but I retain them in a cardboard box

Collector madness!!!
There are 3 x 2 Tone singles released on a ‘blue‘ 2 Tone label as well as the traditional paper and silver injection moulded.
They weren’t intentionally released as blue label it was a manufacturing issue so they actually have no ‘official’ release value.
As a completist I’d like to have them but as part of an official collection don’t need them.
Been watching this one on EBay and it sold for £255.67!!!
One sold in January for £19 😔

Can’t help myself.
I have a copy of The Bodysnatchers single Lets Do Rocksteady (catalogue CHSTT 9) on the traditional 2 Tone paper label and I also have a copy on the plastic injection moulded label.
Now I have bought a 3rd copy labelled as People Do Rocksteady

Of any interest to you 101W? A Two Tone 8CD release. A lot cheaper than that blue label single!

I really admire your absolutely insanely detailed devotion to collecting every possible variant the 2-tone label every pressed, Wally. It's incredibly cool in the record geekiest way possible.

Not sure if you are taking the piss or not 😊however if you have any OCD it is great to collect something that has clear parameters . I know some people who collect any 2 Tone records however that also includes an infinite number of overseas pressings and imports etc.. I couldn't cope with collecting something that doesn’t have a finish or at least a possible finish.

Yes that is another nice 40th anniversary release from 2 Tone and great value for money. Shame there isn’t a vinyl option.

No, I'm being serious, it's pretty cool. I did a much more modest project like yours with a record label, but it only ever put out a few releases. I had a nice sense of satisfaction when I found the records of been looking for and had 'em all together.
