Now, you may wonder why these 1,000 "Live from Montreux" book sets are reappearing in 2023, sixteen years after their initial limited release. Thierry Amsallem, President of the Claude Nobs Foundation, provides the answer:

«We believed we had exhausted our supply of books. However, the resurgence of interest was sparked by the production and airing of the TV mini-series 'They all came out to Montreux' on Swiss television. This series heavily relied on our book set, and Prince's mention of it further fueled the demand. This led us on an extensive search, resulting in the discovery of hidden stock in a half-forgotten warehouse. We decided to offer these newly found sets at the original inflation-adjusted price, with all net proceeds benefiting the Claude Nobs Foundation. This foundation is dedicated to preserving the unique audio and video archive of the Montreux Jazz Festival from 1967 to 2013, a UNESCO Memory of the World.»

These last 1,000 book sets are a rediscovered cultural treasure, a timeless work of art that not only belongs to their owners but also supports a charitable cause. Purchasing this collection is not merely acquiring fantastic books; it's preserving a piece of music history and contributing to a meaningful cause.

The last thousand copies of the book set are available through the newly created destination Live from Montreux.

The value of the collection with four volumes cannot be weighed in kilograms, but the weight of the package shows how much format, content and scope can be expected.

The fact that orders, processing and logistics will go smoothly has been made possible by an international team from four countries around Christoph Jaggi, who is responsible for conception, planning and project management. This capable team, including Matija Milosevic (design), Aleksander Djukic (development), Martin Fähndrich (product photography), Ivana Putincanin (design consultant), Denis Kolegov (development consultant), and Nemanja Tasic (social media management), ensured not only the creation of the digital space but also the safe and intact delivery of this substantial 10-kilogram collection.

The fact that 10 kilograms of music and contemporary history arrive at the right place in the global market, complete and in top form, is supported by Shopify (eCommerce solution), Espace Jouets (fulfillment), UPS (logistics provider).
