Elements Box Elements Box © 1993 Virgin · CDBOX2 - 7243 8 39089 2 9 (4 CD Set)

Originally released on November 10th, 1993.

"Elements Box" was a 4 CD boxed limited edition set released by Virgin to commemorate the 20th anniversary of "Tubular Bells". The material included is an extensive recopilation of Mike's work from 1973 to 1991 and a better approach to the real fan than its little brother (and more commercial) "Elements". On November 26th, 2001 the box was reissued in a more standard repackaged box with the same booklet and CD's and new code CDBOXY2.
