without music, life would be a mistake

The ultimate collectors limited edition box set. The Atlantic Records Time Capsule was created in the same spirit that infused the label’s very beginnings. Just as the company’s founder, to quote the legendary Ahmet Ertegun, “wanted to make the kind of records that we would buy,” we set out to assemble a collection that would tell a story that we would want to hear. From the onset, the idea was to present Atlantic Records “from the inside.” The collection was compiled by a small group of Atlantic staffers, who drew on rarely seen material from the company’s archives, Ahmet’s  personal papers, and the work of staff photographers through the years.
