Some bands are just good bands. Blur is a fucking awesome band and the celebration of their legal drinking age in the U.S. deserves a box set. It comes in a really bad ass package — like totally origami — and includes all seven studio albums, five and a half hours of unreleased material including sixty-five unreleased tracks and twice as many rarities. Also included are three DVDs including material from Live at Alexandra Palace 1994 and Live at Wembley ‘The Singles Night’ 1999, a collector’s edition book featuring rare and unseen photos, a new and exclusive interview with the band, and a limited edition 7″ featuring a track under the band’s original name, Seymour. The first five albums have been re-mastered by Frank Arkwright in Abbey Road Studios, with everything in the box set overseen by Graham Coxon and producer Stephen Street. A separate Vinyl box set includes art from Banksy, David Shrigley, and Graham Coxon among others.
