Depeche Mode – Singles Box 3

Originally released 25 November 1991 and featuring 35 tracks on six CDs, the “Singles Box 3” is the fifth commercial box set by Depeche Mode. It consists of singles, b-sides and remixes from 1985 to 1988. It’s the third box in a bundle which initially had three parts. Besides this one, there is the “Singles Box 1” and the “Singles Box 2“. In 2004, together with reissues of boxes 1–3, boxes 4, 5, and 6, were released. Over the years, the “Singles Box 3” has been re-released several times. All UK editions plus the Beneluxian and German versions have “MADE IN ENGLAND” on the front cover, the US editions have “MADE IN THE USA”, and the European reissue has DMBX3 and a barcode. All of the CD singles were also made available as individual titles.
