Reissued box of singles by Rhino / Sire / Mute. The singles: “Dreaming of Me,” “New Life,” and “Just Can’t Get Enough” all came out in 1981, the same year as Speak & Spell the band’s debut album.

This reissue from 2018 also includes a flexi-disc with “Sometimes I Wish I Was Dead” (which was on the UK version of Speak and Spell but not the US version) and on the b-side, Fad Gadget‘s “King of the Flies.”

Depeche Mode is one of the bands for which I did actually collect 12″ singles, but I did not have any of these earlier ones so was happy to find a deal on this box set at Mel’s Record Shop in Amesbury, MA.
