Tragically Hip Reading CD/DVD Box Set

Canadian rock act the Tragically Hip is compiling a four disc music and video boxed set. The limited-edition “Hipeponymous” will boast two audio discs dubbed “Yer Favourites” that will feature 37 tracks recently chosen by fans through an Internet vote on MSN’s Canadian site. Two new songs will also be included.

The box will be bolstered by the concert DVD “That Night in Toronto,” shot in November 2004 at the Air Canada Centre in High Definition. Another DVD will feature the band’s entire video oeuvre of 23 clips, plus 11 new “video pieces.” A 48-page book will round out the package.

The four-disc set will be released as a Nov. 1 in the Great White North by Universal Canada. “Yer Favourites” and “That Night in Toronto” will also be released separately on the same day. At deadline, it was unknown if the collection will be released in any fashion in the United States. The group’s last two studio sets, 2002’s “In Violet Light” and 2004’s “In Between Evolution,” saw U.S. release on Rounder’s Zoe imprint, but a Rounder spokesperson confirms the label and the group are no longer working together.

The Hip has made only two appearances in 2005, playing the Toronto Live 8 concert and Newfoundland’s Salmon Splash Festival. The band will return to live duty when it opens for the Rolling Stones Sept. 3 in Moncton, New Brunswick.
