Rob Zombie Completes Work on Long-Awaited White Zombie Box Set

September 9, 2008 3:51 PM ET

Rob Zombie has finally finished work on the long-delayed White Zombie box set. The set will house five discs: four dedicated to over four and half hours of music, while the fifth disc will house "tons of never before seen videos," Zombie said in a MySpace post. As for the music, Zombie said "All I can say is boy the early shit is whacked. I haven't heard some of these songs in over twenty years. I don't know what the hell we were thinking." No release date has been announced yet, but Zombie said "it shouldn't be much longer. I'm pretty you'll be getting [it] under your Christmas tree." When we talked to Zombie last December about the box set, he told us not to hold our breath, saying "I'm not real big on going back and repackaging the past." At least we can exhale now.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
