Special Packaging Info: 9 CDs (168 tracks) plus a 7 inch 45 rpm record of Atlantic Records first major hit, Stick McGee's 'Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-Oh-Dee' and its b-side. Also includes 1 DVD: The PBS Documentary 'The House That Ahmet Built.' (DVD Run-Time: 115 Minutes). The Atlantic Time Capsule was created in the same spirit that infused the label's very beginnings. Just as the company's founders, to quote Ahmet, 'wanted to make the kind of records that we would want to buy,' we set out to assemble a collection that would tell a story that we would want to hear. From the onset, the idea was to present Atlantic Records 'from the inside.' The collection was compiled by a small group of passionate Atlantic staffers, who drew on rarely seen material from the company's archives, Ahmet's personal papers, and the work of staff photographers through the years.
This unique package design contains a full color 140 page book filled with unseen 'from the inside' images as well as a collection of reproduced memorabilia including: a backstage pass, handbills, posters, ticket stubs and other vintage swag. Each set is completed by an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
