GTA: San Andreas Box Set Announced
Rockstar Games will be releasing a double CD soundtrack as well as an 8 CD
box set soundtrack as a companion to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The double
CD and box set are scheduled for release on November 23rd, 2004 in the US and
November 22nd, 2004 throughout Europe.
As a bonus the official soundtrack double CD will feature a separate stand-alone DVD containing 'The Introduction', the cinematic prologue to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. 'The Introduction' tells the full story of the events leading up to CJs return to San Andreas. The prequel will not be available anywhere else and appears to be a nothing more than a cheap way for Rockstar to squeeze a few more dollars out of the game.
Each album of the 8 CD box set will replicate a music station from the game featuring a broader selection of tracks ranging from contemporary west coast and classic east coast hip-hop, funk, rare groove, new jack swing and contemporary soul, alternative rock, classic rock, reggae and country. The radio stations in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will feature over one-hundred and fifty tracks from artists including James Brown, Willie Nelson, 2 Pac, and Rage Against the Machine plus many, many more that encompass a great deal of the radio spectrum of the early 90's.
The double CD also includes as a bonus track an exclusive cover of the Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like A Hole" by punk band AFI. The track has been recorded by AFI specifically for the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas soundtrack album.
