The Plastic People of the Universe
8 CD Box Set
limited edition
# 770 of 1000



Globus International 1992, Prague
This is the complete work of the PPU released after Czechoslovakia's 
Velvet Revolution of 1989.

The Plastic People of the Universe were a Czech rock group influenced by the Velvet Underground
and Frank Zappa, formed during 1968 after the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. The communist government banned the group's music and prosecuted the band members as enemies of the state. 
To read more, go to the Plastic People of the Universe entry on Wiki,
or to the PPU's website, plasticpeople.eu, or check out Richie Unterberger's excellent essay on the band, in which he mentions this historic compilation.

I purchased this box set via mail order from Prague.

this box set consists of a 2 piece cardboard box 13 x 13 x 2 inches,
2 booklets,
8 CDs 
signed and numbered PPU label
1978 clipping from the Village Voice about the PPU

before each corresponding set of images.

some fraying at the corner seams.
