Boxed set

Back | Home | Up | Next


A boxed set (now often referred to as a box set) is one or more musical recordings, films, or television programs that are contained in a box. In the case of music, boxed sets are usually made up of three or more discs, covering a broad range of the music of a given artist or genre. They often serve as an especially large Greatest Hits compendium, usually including rare and never-before-released tracks.
