edel and Universal working together
Hamburg - First released in 2003 across Europe, Hamburg-based edel music AG’s "earBOOKS" format is being extended with the addition of further highlights. "earBOOKS meets heroes in music" - under this motto, edel music is joining forces with Universal to pay homage to great artists in audio and visual form.
Now comprising over fifty titles, the catalog is currently being extended with the addition of THE POLICE, STEVIE WONDER, MARVIN GAYE, DUSTY SPRINGFIELD, THE JAM and THIN LIZZY.
Under the exclusive license deal, edel is distributing the earBOOKS in Europe via music and book retailers as well as NTOs. Universal holds the distribution rights for the UK and Ireland.
earBOOKS is a production format marketed via both book and record retail channels. The earBOOKS format combines high-quality, large-format photo books and thematically-related music CDs which are integrated neatly and practically in the hard-cover binding of the book using a new packaging technology. earBOOKS are produced exclusively by optimal media production GmbH, a subsidiary of edel music AG. edel also licenses the format to third parties.
