Curated by Ron and Russell Mael, Sparks: New Music for Amnesiacs The Ultimate Collection is the definitive guide to the band's career, as chosen by the two people who know the band best. The four CDs that are presented within a hardbound coffee table book include 81 songs that are the most significant in terms of their career (which spans four decades) or that resonate with them on a more personal level.
The book also features photographs and memorabilia (much of it from the band’s own archives) which, when accompanied by the music, will tell their story from the late '60s as the Urban Renewal Project and their relatively brief time as Halfnelson, through the subsequent 40 years as Sparks. With a more traditional autobiography extremely unlikely, this is the Sparks story, as told by Sparks.
The boxset features tracks from all 21 studio albums, complete with a 64-page hardbound book, an oversized envelope stuffed with never-before-seen proof-sheet photo outtakes of the Big Beat photo session shot by renowned photographer Richard Avedon and adorned with a replication of Richard Avedon Studio's return address sticker addressed to the Maels at their New York hotel. A second envelope is filled with memorabilia and a bonus CD contains studio tracks commemorating two of Sparks' unique live events, "Islington N1" from the Sparks Spectacular (21 albums in 21 nights), and "Two Hands One Mouth" from the eponymous tour.
