George Harrison's family will mark his 74th birthday with some massive new items.  Not the least of which, an 18-disc vinyl box set featuring all of George's albums including the Jeff Lynne co-produced Cloud Nine and Brainwashed plus two Cloud Nine single picture discs - all replicas of their originals on 180g vinyl.

George Harrison - The Vinyl Collection box set features all of George Harrison's solo studio albums in one collection for the first time to commemorate the musician's birthday. The vinyl box set includes all twelve of George's studio albums with exact replicas of the original release track listing and artwork. Also included in the box set are George's classic live album Live In Japan (2LP), and two 12' single picture discs of 'When We Was Fab' and 'I Got My Mind Set On You.' All the discs are 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and are housed in a high-quality two-piece rigid slipcase box. The original analogue master tapes were used for the new re-masters and were cut at the legendary Capitol studios to ensure exceptional audio quality throughout.

Lowest pre-order right now: $399.

It also appears the individual albums will be released as well including Cloud Nine and Brainwashed.

Need something to play all this new vinyl on and have a few more bucks to spend?  How 'bout a custom-designed George Harrison Pro-Ject Essential III turntable. Costs around $500.

The vinyl box, the LPs individually, the turntable and an extended edition of I Me Mine, the book about his life, is out Friday February 24, 2017.
