    “Weird Al” Yankovic will be releasing a career spanning box set on November 24th.


    Legacy Recordings, home to definitive releases by the world’s foremost recording artists including Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Presley, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis, proudly presents Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of “Weird Al” Yankovic, a career-spanning box set of all fourteen of Al’s studio albums, remastered for CD and 150-gram vinyl, and lavishly housed in an exact replica of the artist’s signature accordion.

    I wish they'd post the track list to the rarities record. Cannot fathom spending this much on records I would listen to occasionally at most.

    Apparently a lot of people because they sold out of the 27 $1,500 test press editions already

    i’ve been meaning to tell you

    I kinda want this for the packaging alone but not for $300. Loved Weird Al back in the day but can't see myself spinning this now. Awesome idea though.

    It's chaos. Be kind. Prestigious

    $300 is totally a fair price and all for 14 LPs, given the packaging and the notes. Weird Al's one of those artists though whose releases are really hit or miss. If I bought this, I'd listen to some albums waaaay more than others.
