New October release: BOX SET

Another new collectible on the horizon! Did you guess it?  On October 14th Sony Legacy will release a new BOX SET with as yet unknown contents. The Heartlinker will be keeping you updated on this new release in this post.

First update: it has FOUR discs! And the title “The Box Set Series” suggests a simple catalog release with some extra’s in this fashion.

Update September 17th: Thank you Manny for reporting on the BBS!: Since Legacy/Sony are involved with this project, they tend to get the artists involved with their “Boxset Series'” ie. providing liner notes. Other boxsets released by Sony/Legacy in this series include hits, deep album cuts and alternative outtakes/b-sides.

Update October 7th 2014: and here’s the cover art!

Update October 11th 2014: “2014 four CD release, an installment in the popular THE BOX SET SERIES, which come packed with original hit recordings by the biggest artists in music history. For the first time, the classic recordings of these household names are now packaged in box sets that virtually any household can afford. This set from the Classic Rock duo features 44 tracks including ‘Barracuda’, ‘Straight On’, ‘Even It Up’ and the previously unreleased ‘Stairway To Heaven’.”

Update October 15th 2014: the track list has appeared at Walmart.com and thanx to David G for posting the correct order. Disc 4 has the previously unreleased on CD track of the FAMOUS and HISTORIC Kennedy Center performance of “Stairway to Heaven”. Plus… and this is not confirmed… I think that many of the tracks on disc 4 are taken from their Sony DVD release “Night at Sky Church”, which was not released on CD (except for a small promo with a couple of songs). “Never” (live) is listed on the set as previously unreleased on CD: at first I thought it would be the “The Road home” version that was released on CD in Japan, but that version did see the laser light as part of “Strange Euphoria”. So what is this? Also nice to see that the disc includes singles from their latest studio efforts “Jupiter’s Darling”, “Red Velvet Car” and “Fanatic”!

Added October 25th 2014: I received my copy of The Box Set Series today (picture) and the “Never” (live) is from “Night at Sky Church” DVD/Blu-Ray, so indeed that song has never been released on CD. The two tracks after that could’ve been credited the same way. Both “What About Love” and “These Dreams” (with Alison Krauss) are from that same DVD, but have been released to radio-stations on CD. The booklet lists these two tracks as released on the “Night at Sky Church CD Sampler”. Doesn’t really count eh? The box folds out nicely and has a booklet about Ann & Nancy. Several pictures can be found, but actually no one but Ann & Nancy can be found on them.
