Notes The title is a quote from the final verse of T.S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock:We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

This box was released in a limited edition of 1000 copies to celebrate Rune Grammofon’s 50th release. The Norwegian label is happy to celebrate its anniversaries – see also Money Will Ruin Everything and, er, Money Will Ruin Everything 2. Any excuse for the production of gorgeous objects like this provoke no complaint from this quarter!

  1. Wow this is what I call state-of-the-art collection item! I don’t collect vinyls because I really prefer other audiophile media as SACD and DVD-A but items like this tempt me. =)

  2. It is indeed a lovely thing. One thing that I really should have mentioned is that it’s a 10″ box and vinyl. There’s something about the proportions of the 10″ that are really lovely.
