The Black Box

The Black Box is a box set album by Gasolin'. It was released in 2003, and contains the original seven studio albums they released between 1971 and 1977, the live album, Live sådan (but for some reason not Live i Skandinavien) and Additional tracks. The latter contains 19 songs, 18 rare and four of the songs are previously unreleased.

Several other rare tracks such as "Endelig jul igen" and "Where Do We Go Now, Mon Ami" are for some reason absent. The Black Box was a big seller and confirmed that Gasolin' is the most popular rock band in Denmark ever.

The Black Box is not the first box set with Gasolin'. In 1981 A Box Full of Gas was released containing Gas 5, Efter endnu en dag, Gør det noget and an EP with these songs: "Marken er høstet", "Skru op", "Som et strejf af en dråbe" and "Det er en kold tid".
