Bruce Springsteen Box Set Wins 2012 Grammy Award for Best Packaging
Art directors Dave Bett and Michelle Holme just picked up a Grammy for Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package for their work on Bruce Springsteen‘s six-disc ‘The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge of Town Story’ set.
The set includes a digitally-remastered version of ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town,’ as well as six hours of film and more than two hours of audio across 3 CDs and 3 DVDs.
It also comes with an 80-page book containing images from the notebooks Springsteen kept during recording sessions for the landmark album, a documentary, four hours of live concert film from the Thrill Hill Vault, and lots of other goodness.
The Boss himself tweeted out congrats to Bett and Holme just a short time ago.
