A story told through eight albums of widely varied — and impossibly unmatched — musical output.
VMP Anthology goes beyond the 12 LPs included in your box. Alongside your box and the albums within it, we provide in-depth, original Listening Notes and a digestible multi-episode podcast series to serve as your definitive guide though these records. VMP Anthology isn’t just a box set, created to gather dust on your shelves — it’s an immersive and transformative story that comes alive for you to spend weeks (or longer!) inside of. We can’t wait for you to dive deeper into Quincy Jones’ groundbreaking story, complete with an unbelievable cast of characters — from Frank Sinatra to Miles Davis to Michael Jackson.
The first six titles (This Is How I Feel About Jazz, Sinatra At The Sands, Walking in Space, Body Heat, The Wiz, The Dude) are AAA-mastered from tapes, and the final two (Back on the Block, Miles & Quincy Live At Montreux) are mastered from the highest quality digital masters available, with lacquers cut by Ryan Smith and Barry Grint. All eight titles are pressed on exclusive 180g colored vinyl at GZ.
Go beyond the albums by reading our 32-page listening notes booklet, written by Ashley Kahn and designed by Mattieu Bitton. It covers the story of Quincy Jones, each individual album in the box and his cultural and musical impact across an array of genres. The booklet also features quotes from the man himself and an array of unique visual ephemera from his decades of work. Our accompanying podcast offers a unique perspective and insight on each album and was produced in close conjunction with Quincy’s team. Find it on streaming services when your Anthology ships and listen to each corresponding episode as you make your way through the records in your box.
