This one-stop box set places in the hands of its owner an in-depth overview of the origin and development of electronic music that charts its first four decades in 42 music tracks and 20 video tracks -- short pieces, excerpts, performances and interviews -- totalling between them over 6 hours of material (see below) documenting the early history of electronic music; plus a 112 page, photo-packed booklet that discusses each work and comes with a forward by none other than Brian Eno.  This is going to be pretty hard to pass up at our super special price.  Needless to say, but, of course, we will say it anyway:  this is a one time offer and supplies are limited (but not that limited, as we have  managed to put in a good supply).

“Many of the ideas in this collection have now been so completely assimilated into popular listening that it may sometimes be hard to remember how surprising it all was on first outing. Some of it still sounds pretty exotic. These CDs are important as part of the story of how we got to where we are now–the cultural conversation so far–and as a still fruitful repertoire of future possibilities.” — Brian Eno (from the forward to the book)
