Weird Al Yankovic’s career retrospective box set is coming soon!

Featured, Music, Top story

Attention “Weird Al” Yankovic fans! Set your sights on something amazing coming up soon.

We’re approximately one month away from the release of “Weird Al” Yankovic’s Squeeze Box, a career retrospective box set of the popular entertainer’s entire career. Beginning with Al’s eponymous debut album and ending with rarities compilation entitled Medium Rarities, this is a set Al fans won’t want to miss. Unfortunately, many fans may have to do just that. Because of a long production time, the set was offered in limited quantities and is no longer available for purchase. I was lucky enough to order the vinyl version around the time of its announcement. With that in mind, once I receive my copy, I will be happy to post photos and an un-boxing video, and as always, share my thoughts on the packaging. Of course, I may also get distracted by being able to hear some of the albums on vinyl for the first time, so we shall have to see.

As a lifelong Al fan, this is basically a holy grail of the collection and I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts and reactions when it arrives. I know what you’re thinking: why buy the vinyl versions when I already have the CDs, high-quality digital versions and cassettes? What can I say? I’m just a big fan.

For more information about the now sold-out box set, go to Al’s Pledge Music Page. 

And while you’re here, why not check out the time “Weird Al” had trading cards (stay tuned; there’s a follow-up in the cards on this topic) or how about checking out the tour announcement?
