“Weird Al” Yankovic has logged more than 30 years in the parody-covers game at this point, and will be celebrating his achievements in the field with a new career-spanning box set titled Squeeze Box: The Collected Works Of “Weird Al” Yankovic, out this fall. Containing all 14 of Weird Al’s studio LPs dating back to 1983’s self-titled album, the collection is housed in a replica case of Al’s signature accordion and comes with a 100-page book of photos and other memorabilia. In addition to the remastered albums, Al is releasing Medium Rarities, which features previously unreleased music and non-album tracks such as “Pacman” (based on the Beatles “Taxman”), “30 Rock Theme Parody,” and the extra-gory version of “The Night Santa Went Crazy.” You can watch a trailer for the compilation featuring a visual spoof of Super Mario Bros. below.
Squeeze Box: The Collected Works of “Weird Al” Yankovic is out 11/24 via Legacy Recordings.
