The music world lost a good one earlier this year when the Books broke up, but super-fans will now have the opportunity to console themselves in the form of a massive career-spanning box set. You can now own every single recording the band made during its twelve year run.
A Dot In Time. collects the entire recorded output of the Books via 95 songs on 7 vinyl records, a 2-hour DVD, a 56-page picture book, and a cassette-shaped USB flash drive containing every song in high-quality MP3 format. Yes, that means those vinyl records have a “Side N.”
The band’s four studio albums are included, and you’ll also get 45 rare and previously-unreleased tracks. The DVD contains every video the band made, including several only seen in concert.
The box set is limited to 1,000 copies and can be purchased through Temporary Residence where it retails for $150. Below, watch an exhaustive video that takes you through all the goodies.
