ABOUT THIS ITEM
"+/-" (plus minus) is a unique Joy Division retrospective box set consisting of 10 CD singles presented in a beautiful clamshell box. All tracks have been newly re-mastered from original tapes by Stephen Morris and Frank Arkwright (Metropolis Studios) with creative direction for "+/ -" box set artwork coming from Peter Saville.
Compiled by renowned journalist and author Jon Savage, "+/-" was originally released as a 7" box set in 2010 in celebration of Ian Curtis - in the year that is the 30th anniversary of his death. Although they released two albums in two years – "Unknown Pleasures" (1979) and "Closer" (1980), Joy Division recorded many other tracks throughout their career that were released on stand-alone singles - most notably "Transmission" and "Love Will Tear Us Apart". "+/-" brings these singles, and more, together in one place.
As a co-founder of the legendary independent label Factory Records Peter Saville leant his eyes to the project providing stunning outer packaging and suggesting the concept for the sleeves. Each cover is based upon its original and - as a snapshot of a band and a time - serves to remind the owner of the unique position Joy Division hold in British musical history.
