The albums in the box set will also receive individual releases, with the exception of the All Things Must Pass reissue- which will be sold individually for a limited time.
Along with this box set, Harrison's 1980 autobiography I Me Mine will be re-released with new pages added- picking up where the 1980 book left off. Included in the new book will be lyrics to 141 songs and unpublished pictures.
