40 лет прошло с выхода этого анти-религиозного концепт-альбома! Специальное издание снабжено вторым диском со всевозможными ранее не издававшимися композициями записанными группой в период с 1970 по 1971 года. Оба диска микшированы в Abbey Road студии с оригинальных мастер-лент. Так же в издание входит 32-х страничный буклет с фотографиями и дополнительной информацией на английском языке.

18 октября 1971 года британские арт-рокеры Jethro Tull открыли свое очередное заокеанское турне концертом в нью-йоркском "Мэдисон Сквер Гарден".
В основу программы был положен выпущенный в том же году четвертый по счету альбом группы "Aqualang" (4-е место в национальном хит-параде и 7-е — в американском). Диск этот считается вершиной творчества Jethro Tull. Не обошлось без скандала — впервые за историю рок-музыки концептуальный альбом был полностью посвящен критике современной религии.
Фронтмен Jethro Tull, певец, флейтист и гитарист Иэн Андерсон, создавший эту своеобразную рок-оперу (ему помогала жена Дженни Фрэнке, сама сочинявшая стихи и пьесы), поведал придуманную историю о живущих среди нас никчемных созданиях Аквалангах, ведущих пустую, бездуховную жизнь. Иэн оставил им надежду: испытав сильное душевное потрясение, Акваланг может „прозреть". Комментируя титульную песню альбома о старом Акваланге-оборванце, Андерсон так комментирует ее: „ Возьмите человека, который находится на самом дне — например, бродягу из этой песни. Несмотря ни на что, в нем есть столько же божественного, сколько и в самом Папе Римском". Музыка альбома как нельзя более соответствует эпичности повествования: на фоне чисто роковых гармоний много акустической гитары и знаменитой андерсоновской флейты „с придыханиями". Когда слушаешь композиции этой пластинки в исполнении Лондонского симфонического оркестра, развеиваются последние сомнения в отношении того, называть ли эту музыку классикой.

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD commemorative Collector's Edition of the classic 1971 album, released to coincide with the classic LP's 40th Anniversary. Disc One features a NEW, previously unreleased stereo mix of the album. Disc Two contains additional recordings from 1970-71 and includes unheard stereo mixes. EMI. 2011.

The Rox Box (Roxette 86-06) - подарочное издание сборника лучших хитов, выпущенное 18 октября 2006 года шведской поп-рок группой Roxette и посвящённое 20-летию творческой деятельности коллектива. Издание оформлено в виде книги нестандартного формата.
Помимо множества ярких и красочных фотографий, а также достаточно подробного текста об истории группы, содержит четыре диска формата CD-Audio и два DVD. На страницах книги (всего 71 страница на очень плотной бумаге) также имеется информация о всех альбомах группы и обновленный каталог их релизов.

The Roxbox 86-06, released on 18 October 2006 is a Boxset from Swedish pop duo Roxette, celebrating 20 years of successful hit singles and albums. It's sister release was their Greatest hits compilation A Collection of Roxette Hits - Their 20 Greatest Songs!. The songs featured in this box set stretch back to Roxette's first release, "Neverending Love", to new songs recorded for the compilation, "One Wish" and "Reveal" also featured in their Greatest hits album. Other songs can also be found in the four CD box set, including unreleased demos and album out-takes. Strangely although every international Roxette single from "Neverending Love" to "Reveal" is included, the album omits the 1994 hit single "Fireworks". Although the reason isn't known it is assumed that Roxette do not like it as it has not appeared on previous compilations. It only appears on it's parent album Crash! Boom! Bang! from 1994, although it is included in remixed form on their album Rarities from 1995. The DVD however does include the video for the track. The album does omit smaller hit singles that were only minor hits in smaller countries such as "I Call Your Name", "Chances" and "Fingertips '93". A DVD of their complete 1993 MTV Unplugged concert featuring previously unseen performances can also be found in this box set.
