Boxset Madness Pt. 2: The Smashing Pumpkins

Following on from my Boxset Madness Pt. 1 post, another one of my recent trip’s purchases was the 2013 ‘The Aeroplane Flies High’ boxset reissue from The Smashing Pumpkins.

Housed in a heavyweight card box adorned with the same metallic silver and black spiralled logo to the original release, there are 5 thick metallic card sleeves with a different pattern – 1 sleeve for each of the singles off of the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness LP.

Tonight Tonight (silver), 1979 (blue), Bullets with Butterfly Wings (orange);

Zero (purplely blue), Thirty-Three (pink):

Each sleeve contains a further interior sleeve, replicating the pattern from the thicker metallic sleeve, just in black and white as well as a standard paper sleeve that houses a 180gram black 12″ vinyl (pictured below: the Thirty-Three single)

Disappointly, there is no inlay book, only a single sheet that details the tracklisting (which forms the outer sleeve when shrink-wrapped.

All in all, it is a very nice set (albeit a nice art book would have been very welcome) – with each heavyweight vinyl sounding excellent.

And besides, it looks really nice with the Mellon Collie reissued boxset released in 2012.;
