'The Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box,' a very special box set that features expansions of the 13 original scores that Elfman has composed for Burton's iconic films. This is a newly-produced library of 16 CDs each packaged with artwork by Burton, adding up to more than 19 hours of music, including 7 hours of previously-unreleased Masters, demos, work tapes and other rarities.
-Among the 19 hours of music are seven hours of previously unreleased music including such rarities as additional masters, cut songs, song and score demos, work tapes, orchestra-only song mixes, and foreign-language songs.
-'Danse Macabre: 25 Years of Danny Elfman and Tim Burton': A meticulously researched, lavishly illustrated 250+ page fine linen-wrapped hardbound book, entitled with gold foil stamping, and featuring a foreword by Johnny Depp. The book also includes rare photos, stories, and interviews from the cast and crew behind the scenes of this classic music from the early days of Elfman's band Oingo Boingo to the recent blockbuster film 'Alice in Wonderland.' Interviewed are such collaborators and peers as Guillermo Del Toro, Phillip Glass, Paul Haggis, James Newton Howard, Tom Jones, Michael Keaton, Ang Lee, Errol Morris, Thomas Newman, Catherine O'Hara, Jon Peters, Paul Reubens, David Rockwell, Scott Rudin, Marc Shaiman, Howard Shore, Twyla Tharp, Gus Van Sant, and Richard Zanuck. This comprehensive 10x10 keepsake book is written by acclaimed film-music journalist Jeff Bond and designed by Grammy-winning designer Matt Taylor.
-An hour-long exclusive, newly filmed DVD featuring an extended conversation between Burton and Elfman as they reflect on their quarter-century of collaboration.
-As a collectible created exclusively for this treasure box of music and inspired by the art of Tim Burton, a distinctive Skeleton Key USB Flash Drive has been designed. A pull of the key unlocks a USB drive loaded with MP3s of the entire contents of this Music Box. From 'Pee-Wee's Big Adventure' through 'Alice In Wonderland,' it's all here, including bonus tracks, demos, work tapes, and other rarities.
-Newly created liner notes by Elfman discuss each expanded score and the bonus material.
A collection of music as unique as Elfman's for the films of Tim Burton needed to be housed in something equally special, wondrous, and whimsical. Designed to evoke a treasure chest found in a mysterious attic, 'The Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box' is a work of art in itself. Grammy-winning designer Matt Taylor has transformed previously unseen art by Burton and crafted a large scale, tin-covered music box complete with an embedded music chip playing 'The Music Box Suite,' arranged and performed by Elfman specifically for this historic collection.
And to literally top it all off, with a flip of the lid, a delightful working zoetrope is revealed featuring strips of art and photos by Tim Burton and Danny Elfman that come to animated life with a spin.

Like many, I found this item to be quite a disappointment. It looks like a sturdy box but its more like glorified cardboard. The music box/zoetrope was broken. Read morePublished on May 2, 2013 by Odd Doll
