  • Not to be confused with the 2006 box set Cube-E.

Cube-E Box (subtitled The History of American Music in 3 E-Z Pieces pREServed) is a seven-disc box set by The Residents, released October 23rd 2020 on Cherry Red/MVD.

The second box set instalment in the group's comprehensive pREServed reissue series (following 2019's Mole Box), Cube-E Box collects material relating to their 1989-1990 Cube-E live tour, and the related studio album The King & Eye.

Contents

The first three discs of Cube-E Box feature a complete 1990 performance in Holland, which was first released on the 2006 box set Cube-E. Each disc features a different part of the show, the first being Buckaroo Blues, the second being Black Barry, and the third being The Baby King. Each disc features a selection of bonus tracks relating to the piece of the show featured on that disc.

The fourth disc in the set features the 1989 Buckaroo Blues & Black Barry cassette, with the fifth disc featuring relevant bonus tracks, including the first half of a Baby King performance which had been cut from the original cassette, as well as the later half of a German Baby King performance from some weeks later. The fifth disc also features "Mr. Skull's NYE Song", recorded in the later half of 1989 and performed live at a New Years Cube-E show, as well as an uncredited interview with Hardy Fox from the end of the tour's first leg.

The sixth disc is a remastered version of The King & Eye, with bonus tracks from the remix album The King & Eye RMX, and the instrumental outtake "Dog Glue". The seventh disc features previously unreleased demos from The King & Eye, recorded prior to the Cube-E tour in 1989.
