Garth Goes Vinyl With Seven-Record Boxed Set, “The Legacy Collection”

Audiophiles who have longed for more Garth Brooks’ records are getting their wish.

Garth revealed on his Inside Studio G Facebook series on Feb. 25 that he’ll be releasing The Legacy Collection this fall. The seven-disc vinyl collection will feature five albums: No Fences, The Chase, In Pieces, Fresh Horses and Triple Live.

Currently, only Garth’s first three albums—his 1989 self-titled debut, 1990’s No Fences and 1991’s Ropin’ the Wind—are available on vinyl.

The Legacy Collection will come in three packages: Analog, Remix-Remaster and Limited.

“This thing is going to come in three different packages for the way you like to listen to music,” said Garth. “[There’s] the Analog version of Legacy . . . the original recordings the way they sounded. [There’s] another box that is called the Remix-Remaster series, which takes all that analog transferred to digital . . . the records kind of jump to life in more of a modern sound . . . louder, clearer. [And there’s] the Limited package . . . all the cool packaging . . . analog vinyl . . . and digital CDs, so you can actually listen to the difference right there.”

At 7 p.m. on Feb. 26, fans can reserve the three-package set of The Legacy Collection with a personalized six-digit issue number for $100. When The Legacy Collection ships on Nov. 1, the Analog and Remix-Remaster versions will sell for $50 each, while the Limited will retail for $80.

[Update, Feb. 27]

The website selling Garth’s vinyl collection crashed on Feb. 26, and no packages were sold. The new on-sale date is Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. ET.
