Legacy collection will be shipped later this fall
Yahoo! has called it the most sought after vinyl of 2019. Just this week, AOL said, “Brooks proved his selling power during his first-ever vinyl collection’s initial two pre-order windows: During the first 18-hour opening, he sold 420,000 vinyls and, during the second 24-hour period, he sold another 300,000. That brings his current total vinyl sales to 720,000 in less than 48 hours.”
Forbes noted, “to put this in context, The Beatles were the number-one vinyl artist in 2018 with 321,000 sales in over 12 months.”
Now, the third pre-sale window for Garth Brooks’ vinyl release Legacy is open to the public for the first time. The first two windows were only open to the Studio G family. This window will be open while supplies last or end of day Saturday (Apr 13th) via garthbrooks.com.
Friday morning (Apr 12th), Brooks gave a personal tour of some of the awards associated with the albums that are on Legacy. He also then surprised everyone by revealing he kept all the shirts and hats worn on his iconic album covers! He showed them all off and told the stories behind several of them. You can watch the video on the link above.
In Legacy, there are seven vinyl albums, with seven separate CDs of the same titles including bonus tracks not found on the vinyl. The albums are Triple Live, a three disc set that brings his recent record-shattering tour with Trisha Yearwood to life, No Fences, The Chase, In Pieces and Fresh Horses. Each three box set is $129.99, including shipping, and will take eight months to make in four different countries. Only United States residents are able to pre-order the numbered editions, but Brooks encourages fans around the world to get in touch with someone who can ship a copy to their country. Each set will be available separately for retail this fall.
Dates are very important to Brooks, so buying during the pre-sale allows fans to select the six digit number that goes on the side of each of the three boxes, making it very commemorative. The six digit numbers that Brooks has reserved are his wedding anniversary, the birthdays of his children and 000001.
