Originally available as a part of the hugely acclaimed, super-deluxe A Dot In Time. box set, Music For A French Elevator compiles all of the Books non-album tracks into one fittingly surreal package befitting the group who essentially created their own genre (often reluctantly described as collage-pop). A total of 45 tracks are here, including standouts and longtime favorites Classy Penguin, 8 Frame, and their sublime Nick Drake cover Cello Song Feat. Jose Gonzales. Along with their commissioned pieces for the 1% art and sound installation in the Ministry of Culture in Paris, France, the collection includes the Books unreleased film score for the feature-length Biosphere 2 documentary, a stellar collection of counterpoint electroacoustic explorations that emanate the kind of wry charm and wit that became a staple of the Books music. Packaged in an impeccably designed die-cut jacket w/ metallic inks, this collection proves that even the Books non-album material is worthy of emphatic celebrationand adoration.
