The Official Flaming Lips Store will carry an exclusive numbered and colored vinyl version of the five-LP box set along with three exclusive out-of-print t-shirts and three out-of-print posters, designed by Wayne that were originally sold during the Clouds era, that will be limited to a one time run. The CD set will include three discs. The first features the entirety of Clouds Taste Metallic plus the rarities The King Bug Laughs (Oddities and Rarities) (a collection of previously unreleased, promo-only, and compilation-only tracks gathered together and available for the first time ever in one place). The second is a promo-only compilation CD entitled Due To High Expectations The Flaming Lips Are Providing Needles For Your Balloons, and the third is a previously unreleased live recording of the band’s club show at Moe’s captured in Seattle on May 10th, 1996.
