AC/DC Announces Backtracks Box Set – Housed In Working Guitar Amp
AC/DC are readying Backtracks, a new box compilation housed in a working guitar amplifier case. The $199 AC/DC box set includes 3 CDs, 2 DVDs, an LP and more. It’s reportedly the definitive collection of the band’s studio and live rarities together in one place, remastered to sound better than ever. 2 DVDs brings “Family Jewels” up to date plus the entire 2003 Circus Krone gig. A 164 page hard-cover book, collectible merchandise reproductions rounds out the offering. So why is FutureMusic reporting on this? Well the whole package is enclosed in a working guitar amp, an industry first.
The 12″x12″x4″ exterior box is designed to resemble a vintage AC/DC guitar amp – complete with the original logo that was spraypainted onto the rear of Angus and Malcolm’s speaker cabinets in 1975. The “head” of the amp has a handle that lifts the top off to reveal the contents housed within.
The AC/DC Backtracks box set will cost $199 when it ships on November 11th. More information on the AC/DC Backtracks Box Set.
