The album was thought up by Gibson Chairman Henry Juszkiewicz and Chesky Records co-founder David Chesky, Juzkiewicz saying that the album "will afford our customers the opportunity to download something in the highest of quality and is the first offering of its kind from any music company.
"This will be one of many such opportunities as we continue to partner with HDtracks on this pioneering effort."
