A story told through seven albums of sensitive, rebellious and unmatched songwriting, with special attention to vibrant storytelling and quality mastering.
VMP Anthology goes beyond the seven albums 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 to serve as your definitive guide though these records. VMP Anthology isn’t just a box set that’s supposed 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 Willie Nelson’s incredible history, and get lost in his endless well of musical stories along the way.
The first five titles (1965’s Country Willie (His Own Songs), 1971’s Yesterday's Wine, 1975’s Red-Headed Stranger, 1978’s Stardust and 1982’s Always on My Mind) are AAA-mastered from tapes, and the final two albums (1993’s Across the Borderline and 2012’s Heroes) are mastered from the highest quality digital masters available, with lacquers cut by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. All seven titles are pressed on exclusive 180g colored vinyl at GZ.
