US Long Box CD's

Sat Jun 15, 2013 9:31 pm

Please remove if this is 'off topic' . I've seen on ebay Elvis cd releases in the 'long box' format and was wondering how a long box works. Is there a standard jewel case inside the longbox with the usual CD artwork or is the disc attached in the box somehow and the outer box is the artwork. I'm from the UK and have never come across a long box! Thank you in advance...

I once bought one, though it was a Sinatra release and it was as you said, a standard regular jewel case inside a long box that was just....a long box

I'm an Aussie, but a long box is like the original 50's, 60s and 70's box sets, I believe.
In other words, separate CD's and jewel cases stored inside a separate box. Quite different to, say, the CD release of the Elvis Aron Presley set.

Here's another "long box." The "long box" was designed for display at a time most music shops displayed only LPs and singles.

Well, there's a lot more long boxes than I thought! I actually bought 'Worldwide Gold Award Hits' Parts 1 and 2 on CD second hand, so I've had the contents of a long box without even knowing it! I believe later versions of that particular title came in a 'fat box'. Thank you again for taking the time with all your replies - esp. the pictures, nice to see them...
