Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music which handles the archives of Sony's musical holdings, has teamed up with Pledge Music, a crowd funding site that "facilitates musicians reaching out to their fanbase to create 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."
The list of albums includes:
"Weird Al" Yankovic (1983)
"Weird Al" Yankovic In 3-D (1984)
Dare To Be Stupid (1985)
Polka Party! (1986)
Even Worse (1988)
UHF – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and Other Stuff (1989)
Off The Deep End (1992)
Bad Hair Day (1996)
Running With Scissors (1999)
Poodle Hat (2003)
Straight Outta Lynwood (2006)
Mandatory Fun (2014)
Medium Rarities (2017) Exclusive to Box Set
The collection is not cheap with pricing running from $200 to $475 depending on musical format and the number of extras each customer wants. The extras include
Customized Zoetrope-animated turntable mat
Limited edition retro-style Weird Al pennant by Oxford Pennant
Custom Weird Al socks
Magnet sheet (8.5"x11") – build your own Al!
Commemorative Tee Shirt
This collection is set for a November 24 release date. The long lead time is "due to its unprecedented custom packaging. Fans have the opportunity to pre-order the box set now to be guaranteed delivery of this historic set, as only a limited number of sets will be manufactured after this pre-sale."
Squeeze Box will be available for pre-order until February 28th and my dumb ass - who already has all 14 studio albums - has already figured out which shelf this will sit on.
