NOTE: NOTE: Promo boxes are issued without a Release ID. For the purposes of classification within this website, we have designated BECK-BOX2 as the Release ID for this promo box. If you have specific information related to the origin of this promo box, release date and quantity produced, please let us know so we can add the information here.
Around the time this box was issued (early 2005) Disk Union had two Jeff Beck promotions (DU-SP005 - Beck, Jeff - Blow by Blow Promotion (2005 / 2005) & DU-SP006-0412P - Beck, Jeff - Wired Promotion (2005 / 2005)).
A very rough translation of the second promotion (the second set of 5 CDS released in early 2005 - making a total of 10) seems to state that when you buy each Beck CD you get a ticket with each purchase. You need to buy one more ("Please purchase domestic board [Japanese Papersleeve] 11 you like. We exchange 11 tickets, with the Beck ???? box.").
They then go on to say that the box holds 10-12 CDs (as per this box). "Start of exchange is 2/22. It ended." I think that means it sold out pretty quickly!
As with the 2006 Bowie releases it's also possible that the box was issued by the record label and not Disk Union.
Despite this it does appear the box you see here was a manufacturer box produced by Sony.
