Details on ordering Box Set
Formed at the turn of the millennium, the Books emerged as a breath of fresh air in what was becoming a somewhat claustrophobic electronic music scene. Over four albums in a decade’s time they became one of the most beloved and highly innovative groups in music.Truly unclassifiable, sincerely earnest, and genuinely innovative, it’s no surprise the Books’ music has stood the test of time in an era when artists come and go between blinks of an eye.
A Dot In Time. collects the entire audio-visual 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.
Included in this set are all of the acclaimed original studio albums, remastered in 2011: Thought For Food, The Lemon of Pink, Lost and Safe, and The Way Out; also included is the previously unreleased double-album Music For A French Elevator and Other Oddities, a 45-track compendium of rare and previously unreleased tracks, all remastered in 2012 exclusively for this release.
The Freedom From Expression DVD is also included here. Previously unreleased and compiled especially for this box set, it collects every video ever made by the Books, including several previously only seen in live concerts.
This deluxe box set is strictly limited to 1,000 copies.
