Mr. Big will celebrate 25 years as a band with a huge Japanese only exclusive box set to be released on ***NEW DATE*** JANUARY 28.
 
Details of this 18CD + 2 DVD set have been sketchy so far, but I have uncovered a little exclusive information!
 
First of all – the label blurb reads:
 
“Special box set release from MR. BIG commemorating the 25th anniversary of the band's career. Consists of 18 CDs and 2 DVDs, including unreleased studio takes, rare tracks, live tracks, and plenty more (subject to change).
Japanese original release. Features hardcover packaging (30cm x 25cm) with a slip case.
Contains lots of reproductions of their tour collectibles such as laminated pass, flyer, and ad materials for press. Comes with lyrics and a Japanese description.
*The DVD disc is encoded for region 2 (Japan, Europe, and Middle East), and no subtitles are included.”
 
One other description: “precious sound, live recordings, rare footage, archive the Goods…”
 
Ok, now to add to that – I have confirmed that the box is still being compiled but will feature only material from the band’s reunion in 2009 onwards!
It will feature (amongst other things), quote: “Live stuff from two tours, rarities, demo's etc…”
 
Quite frankly, this could be the best box set ever released (and the biggest!).
The set is VERY limited in numbers and is priced at approx US$260. I need one!
 
You can pre-order with confidence from CD Japan, who I use all the time via this link:
 
 
Meanwhile, Eric Martin’s ‘Sucker For A Pretty Face’ and ‘Somewhere In The Middle’ are all being reissued on HQCDs November 19.
