Atlantic Honors Rich History With Box Set
December 1, 2009

After six decades as a record label for iconic artists from Aretha Franklin to Led Zeppelin to Kid Rock, Atlantic Records has culled tracks from its entire history for a 10-disc CD/DVD box set dubbed Atlantic Records: Time Capsule. The numbered, limited edition set spans the labelís entire history, from its inception in 1947 by founder Ahmet Ertegun to the present day. The discs are housed in a metallic box featuring nine CDs containing 165 tracks; a DVD of the PBS American Masters documentary Atlantic Records: The House That Ahmet Built; a 140-page book featuring over 200 rare and/or previously unseen photographs from the Atlantic archives as well as reflections and stories from artists and other key players in the companyís history; reproductions of memorabilia and vintage swag; and more.

Artists featured on the set include Ray Charles, The Coasters, The Drifters, John Coltrane, Booker T. & The MGís, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sonny & Cher, Aretha Franklin, The Bee Gees, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Rolling Stones, Yes, Genesis, Hall & Oates, Stevie Nicks, INXS, Rush, En Vogue, Tori Amos, Stone Temple Pilots, Collective Soul, Matchbox Twenty, Sugar Ray, Lilí Kim, Brandy, Kid Rock, Sean Paul, Staind, Death Cab For Cutie, James Blunt, Gnarls Barkley, T.I., Panic! At The Disco, Paramore, Flo Rida, Jason Mraz, Shinedown and tons more.

"This has been a labor of love for a passionate team of Atlantic staffers who have been devoted to this project for many months," commented Atlantic Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman. "It is an extraordinary celebration of our companyís rich musical and cultural legacy. The history of Atlantic is unique in our industry, with an unbroken thread that runs from the labelís very beginnings to the present moment. To open this beautiful box and hear, see, read, and touch the Atlantic story is a truly moving experience. I know Ahmet would be so proud of this impressive and compelling tribute to the incredible music, groundbreaking artists, and amazing cast of characters that have given this company life for the past 62 years."

Atlantic Chairman/COO Julie Greenwald added, "
In the spring of 2004, I showed up for work at Ahmetís house. When I looked at all the phenomenal music that he and his partners had brought to life through the years, I felt a deep responsibility to protect the logo and continue this incredible legacy in music. When we began work on the Time Capsule, we were determined that it not only be a celebration of the past, but a celebration of the lasting power and urgency of the vision that guides the label to this day. Atlantic Records was, is, and always will be a welcoming home for artists, careers, and entrepreneurs. I'd like to think that Ahmet is looking down on us, feeling proud of what we're doing to carry on the great company he created."
