Originally created as pre-concert mood setters, popularity and sound board thievery led to EZ Listening Muzak being sold back in the early 80’s as two fan club only cassettes. For the first time since, these revered recordings are are officially released as Double Vinyl and Double CD Box Sets. But wait…also included alongside these cherished instrumentals of yesteryear is a Brand New EZ version of ‘Human Rocket’ – recorded exclusively for this release!

But thats not all guys and gals…oh no, also included inside this majestic Limited Edition Box Set is an exclusive DEVO Swizzle Stick – the Cocktail Stirrer of champions, an Election Pin Button, a large Double Sided Poster, Cocktail Recipes and Liner Notes by debonair man of the hour Gerald V.Casale.
