EMI unveils details of digital extras for Radiohead boxset release

Digital Music

Last month we told you that EMI was offering the entire Radiohead back-catalogue on a bear-shaped USB stick. Well, it turns out that you get even more than that.

The 4GB stick does contain all seven albums (Pablo Honey, The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, and Hail To The Thief plus one the I Might Be Wrong live album), but it also contains digital artwork and access to a high quality audio-visual online stream of the band’s 90-minute performance at Les Eurockéennes de Belfort festival in France (recorded on 4th July 2003). This works with via Digital Insert technology, which will detect that the memory stick is in your computer’s drive, then give you access to the extras.

The stick is limited to just 1,000 worldwide and sells for £79.99. Or you can buy the set on CD or as a digital bundle featuring DRM-free 320kbps MP3 files.
