Music Box Set

Music Box Set - 150pts. 
In the case of music, box sets are usually made up of three to four compact disc discs, covering a broad range of the music of a given artist or genre. Artists and bands with an extremely long and successful career often have anthology or "essential" collections of their music released as box sets. These often include rare and never-before-released tracks. Some box sets collect together previously released singles or albums by a music artist. Other music box sets focus on a compilation of different artists from a particular genre such as Big Band Jazz, 1960s Rock & Roll, or Opera. They generally feature a large collection of various hits from some of the top artists of a particular genre. The best selling box set to date is Nirvana (band) Nirvana's ’’With the Lights Out'’.
