Come See the Box of Vinyl/etc. and The BOB DYLAN Archive, in Sherman Oaks, CA this Tuesday (Jan.18)

I am going to attend Danny Benair’s Record Club at Freak Beat Records in Sherman Oaks, California on Tuesday (January 18) at 730 PM. I will be bringing along the latest and greatest prototype of the Box of Vinyl/etc. (see below for a more detailed explanation) and The BOB DYLAN Archive. So anyone interested in seeing either or both, I would love to show you them in person. Click the link above for more details…..

The Box of Vinyl/etc. is a unique case for storing and displaying your LP collections. I have been working on this now for over a year, and I am finally ready to show it off. I will soon be posting some photos, details, and even a demo video to show how it works. But before I show it off online, I want to make sure I incorporate any great ideas i may have missed. Because the Danny Benair Record Club is a get together of vinyl lovers, at one of the last great record stores left, I thought it would be a great place to get some final input before I go into production.

To those of you who have been asking about a companion box for storing your Beatles CDs that don’t fit into THE BEATLES Box Of Vision, or your new Apple Box Set, please note that that is what the “etc.” is all about. With a couple of twists, turns and a “voila,” the mild mannered Box of Vinyl transforms into a companion storage and display case for all of those CDs….maybe it sounds crazy, but it works, its cool, and I cant wait to show it off….

VIDEO: JOHN LENNON Box Of Vision Catalography book

Here is the video guide to the Catalography book in the JOHN LENNON Box Of Vision.

I tried something different this time. A silent movie, “Ken Burns” style using stills. I think it gives a good feel for whats inside the John Lennon Catalography book. I love the way this book came out– the cover is a “debossed” bed of lyrics, white on white. It has a really nice physical feel to it that is impossible to capture on video. Otherwise, you can see here the discography, historic record ads and other drawings, photos and handwritten documents. I think its a beautiful book that really reinforces the “time capsule theme.”

SPECIAL OFFER: BEATLES Box Set Plus Box Of Vision: $250 total for both! And pay in three payments.

The response to our recent offer of the John Lennon Box Of Vision + John Lennon Signature Box Set was nothing short of phenomenal.
So much so that we ran out and it delayed a few deliveries– which i truly apologize for….we werent prepared for the stampede and wanted to fill as many orders as we could– happily we ultimately could. We have ordered more Signature Sets – so you can still order if you hesitated or forgot. (US customers only….sorry to everyone outside the US.)

I have been wanting to do a similar thing with the Beatles Box Set for a year now.
Finally…I can.

I have a limited quantity of the 2009 Stereo Box set that I can offer as part of a package with the Beatles Box Of Vision, for a combined price of $250.
Really – you only pay the basic shipping for the Box of Vision ($13.25) and MusicSpace will cover the additional cost of shipping the Box Set.
And you can choose to pay in three installments, at no additional cost.

And YES – it’s the authentic thing(!) The original box set from Capitol Records, including the DVD with all of the mini documentaries.

If you have been waiting to buy either or both of the Box Set or Box of Vision– for yourself or as a gift– now is the time! (Again, sorry, but U.S. Customers only).
And again– you can choose to pay in three installments (at no additional cost). Do it now because, again, I don’t know how many i will be able to get at this price.

SPECIAL OFFER: JOHN LENNON Box of Vision plus JOHN LENNON Signature Box: For a great price and terms…

So, finally, I was able to come up with a special offer through Musicspace.com:

The JOHN LENNON Box Of Vision PLUS the JOHN LENNON Signature Box Set for a combined price of $275 plus shipping (for the Box of Vision only– they will cover the shipping for adding on the Signature Box).

Also, if you choose “Installment  Pay” from the shopping cart, you can choose to pay in three installments, at no additional cost.  Click Here for all the details

I pulled this together because the Signature Box Set and the Box of Vision are true companion products. Once you see them both together you will fully get this. (I will post a video in the next day or two so you can how nicely the Signature Set pieces store inside the BoV.) I know the biggest John Lennon fans will want to buy both, so I wanted to offer the combination at the best price and on the best terms I could. (In this economy $275 is a hefty price tag– so I hope the three payment options makes it workable for as many of you as possible).

More to come….

Recordable DVDs and CDs to be included in each JOHN LENNON Box of Vision, while they last!

This is the artwork for three of the recordable discs that will be included in each of the John Lennon Box of Visions. The five photos from Walls and Bridges and the five self portraits are recordable CDs. The John and Yoko “transitioning/morphing” photos are on  a recordable DVD. There will be one more recordable DVD included, with different artwork (to be revealed soon).

Thanks Steve Marinucci and the Beatles Examiner for the nice report today. The official announcement to the general public about the John Lennon Box of Vision (and pre-order availability) is scheduled for a little over a week (right after I premiere the Box at the Fest For Beatles Fans in Chicago).

JOHN LENNON Box Of Vision Video… and contest

Here is the full display video…. if you can identify the artwork mistake, email me a jonathanmpolk@boxofvision.com.

The first 25 people who correctly identify the mistake will receive 10% off of the online pre-order price.

One hint: the mistake is not the fact that the LP book opens with the back of the Life With the Lions album cover (that was intentional, though not done as elegantly as I would have preferred– was trying to avoid misunderstandings about the Two Virgins cover– as all you could have seen in the video would have been the paper bag version).

Storing CDs in the JOHN LENNON Box Of Vision

I’ve received a number of emails and comments asking about which CDs the JL Box will store, and how it will work. So…now seems as good a time as any to explain.

First: the Box is built to store up to 32 CD albums. But its also now expandable (more on that in a minute) with room to easily add pages to store at least another 16 CDs. The storage pockets are now larger than in the Beatles box, and if you choose you could actually store more than one CD in an individual slot (more on that when you have the Box in front of you, as it requires a little explanation– not essential info right now).

When you open up the Box there will be designated spots for 17 different albums (over 18 spaces– Some Time in New York City has two spots, one for each disc. Again, both discs can be stored in a single spot– especially if you buy the new remastered version…but again/again, more on that later).

The 18 CDs with designated spots are:

Page one *(see * below): Two Virgins, Life With The Lions, Wedding Album, Live Peace In Toronto

Page two: POB, Imagine, Some Time in NYC (2 spaces)

Page three: Mind Games, Walls & Bridges, Rock & Roll & Shaved Fish.

Page four: Double Fantasy, Milk and Honey,  Menlove Avenue, Live in New York City

Page five: Lennon Legend and Acoustic.

There will then be 14 extra “undesignated” spots (though nice Lennon self portrait “wallpaper” backgrounds) for you to add and store any of the compilations you own, any of the box sets (including the new one), or create your own compilations (have I mentioned the Box will come with three Lennon art-adorned recordable CDs and one recordable DVD?)

* But please also note the following:

As with the Beatles BoV, the artwork that designates which CDs are stored where is printed on insert sheets. These sheets are moveable–you can rearrange the order of them. Moreover, sheet one through four above are two sided– on the reverse of each page is the Lennon “wallpaper” design (John self portrait drawings), but without specific CD/album designations. SO… if you do not collect or want to store Two Virgins, Life With Lions, etc, you can remove that page, flip it over, rearrange the order of the other pages to start with POB (or however else you would prefer to organize it).

Finally (for now): the CD binder is now easily expandable. The pages are held in by easily (no tools needed) removable screw-in pegs (they look very industrial and elegant). You can add additional pages (I hope to shortly make additional pages available, but it can also take standard size CD pages if you prefer the inferior general market ones!).

Does that all make sense?
