In 2014, Weird Al’s Mandatory Fun, his 14th studio album, went number one! It was the first time in his career he had a number one record.
For 2017…. Weird Al is putting out an comprehensive collection, Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of “Weird Al” Yankovic. All 14 Weird Al albums, on vinyl. With rarities.
The box set begins with his 1983 self-titled debut and carries us to that number one record, Mandatory Fun. Six of the albums getting issued on vinyl for the first time. There’s a book, rare photos, but maybe my favourite part of this adventure…. the box set comes housed in an accordion.
You can pre-order the set from Pledge Music.
