In anticipation of the September 2009 release of The Beatles' digitally re-mastered catalog, The Beatles Box of Vision is now available for pre-order at boxofvision.com for late August delivery, and will be available at select retailers this Fall. Officially licensed by Apple Corps Ltd., the stunning collection includes:
*A 200-page LP-size book containing all of The Beatles' LP artwork, brilliantly restored in pristine new art prints. This is the first time that all of The Beatles UK and US album artwork has been collected together in a single LP sized book. From PLEASE PLEASE ME and MEET THE BEATLES through LOVE, this book includes front covers, back covers, gatefolds, inserts, and the complete LP booklets from MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR, LET IT BE...NAKED and LOVE, arranged to create the feeling of holding and enjoying the entire LP collection in your lap.
*The "Catalography," a brand new, full color discography guide with photos, text and track-listings, providing the first-ever side-by-side presentation of the UK albums and their US counterparts, with an exclusive essay by Beatles author and historian Bruce Spizer.
*The Box of Vision storage book, a unique and elegant way for fans to organize and display all 32 discs of The Beatles' core catalog. Fans may insert CDs and booklets from their existing collections or the new digitally re-mastered versions--the Box of Vision was built to store and display the digi-pak boxes that will house the newly re-mastered CDs.
Ideal for fans, collectors and holiday gift giving, the set is housed in an elegant black, linen-covered box with silver embossed Beatles logos and faux Beatles LP spines. The 13" x 13" box features the iconic image of The Beatles photographed by Robert Freeman for the cover of WITH THE BEATLES (released as MEET THE BEATLES in the US).
Once a fan inserts their CDs, they are able to store and display The Beatles entire body of work in a single, elegant book.
THE BEATLES Box Of Vision was conceived by Jonathan Polk, a music industry veteran with more than 20 years experience. "It's the ultimate fan piece," says Polk, who served as Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer for Capitol Records during the period in which it released The Beatles LOVE album, LET IT BE...NAKED, and THE BEATLES CAPITOL ALBUMS VOL. 1 and VOL. 2. "The Beatles invented the rock album format and it was my goal to help ensure that fans can continue to discover and appreciate this single greatest catalog of music the way it was originally created."
"I have always been frustrated with the available options for organizing and storing CDs," continues Polk, who is also the inventor of the Box of Vision's patented CD storage structure. "And, I hated the fact that the beautiful LP artwork I grew up with was reduced to almost postage stamp size on CDs. The Box of Vision gives fans the best of all worlds."
For a limited time, individuals who pre-order at www.BoxOfVision.com will reserve a limited edition, individually numbered first edition/first printing of The Beatles Box of Vision. This collector's edition will not exceed 7,200 copies. Shipment will commence in mid-August, just prior to Apple Corps Ltd and EMI Music's September 9th release of the original Beatles catalog, which has been digitally re-mastered for the first time.
