If you are only going to buy one special edition box set DVD, CD, book collection set this Christmas season, my suggestion is The Danny Elfman and Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box.
This little trinket may set you back $500 or so but can you really put a price on 19 hours of film soundtrack, including 7 hours of never before released music? Warner Brothers thinks you can. And I mean after all these guys need to eat.
If you are going to be like me and simply drool over the collection, let me give you you a heads up on what to expect: Sixteen CD's of music from film collaborations of the two artists including Big Fish, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissor hands, and to name some of my favorites, along with a bonus DVD of Elfman and Burton discussing their years of working together. There is a 250 page hardback with glossy illustrations and line notes. A skeleton key flash drive, preloaded with all the music files.
And if you are still unsure, the box itself is a working Zoetrope. NBD.
Its pretty much effin' awesome. As Jack Skeleton once said, "I want it! oh! I want it! I want it for my own!"
