From the promotional flyer.........
"Midnights Friday and Saturday…Sell-out crowds…audiences go wild…madness takes its toll
From the screen to the stage The Rocky Horror Show has been an international phenomenon. Never has an an audience embraced a film, a show, a production with such passion. From the unenlightened (known as virgins) who have not had the pleasure to dabble into the world of Rocky there is no better introduction. Here we present The Rocky Horror Show Album Box Set – Four must have albums from the original cast members to International cast recordings in one bumper package.
There seems to be no end to the power of The Rocky Horror Show and all that remains ahead… more enlightened virgins… more anniversaries … more memorabilia … and absolute pleasure to last a lifetime."
Indeed, well said.
This is a nice Rocky item in itself, loved the glitter added to the 'lips' on both the outer cover and the slip case inside, a really nice touch.
The discs are presented in a nice pull out slip case which unfolds to reveal each CD presented in front of the original album artwork. The fold out also contains the booklet, tucked inside a nice black and white image of Frank, Riff, Magenta and Columbia from the movie.
The box set contains four discs; The Rocky Horror Picture Show Original Film Sound Track, The Rocky Horror Show Original Roxy Cast, The Rocky Horror Picture Show Songs From The Vaults and Rocky Horror International. A full track listing is further down this page.
The image above shows the expanded fold-out, the discs and booklet as well as the rear view images and contents listings. (this is a composite image, so you can see the front and back in one shot)
Also included in the set is a nice 24-page 12cm x 12cm (4 3/4" x 4 3/4") booklet.
The booklet features and introduction to the show, a brief history of Rocky (but only up to 1987), a track listing for all the CD's, lyrics for the The Rocky Horror Picture Show songs and is illustrated with some nice images from the movie too.
All in all a really nice box set and all for well under £20! (price August 21st, 2013)
