Pink Floyd Reissues Entire Catalog
Finally, the news I’ve been waiting for. If you’re a Pink Floyd fan like myself, this is about as close to heaven as we’re gonna get.
We’re still holding out hope for that one-off reunion, but at least Pink Floyd‘s back catalog will no longer be out of print. As announced today, the legendary outfit has settled its legal dispute with EMI and is celebrating with a comprehensive reissuing of its back catalog.
The releases, under the banner Why Pink Floyd…?, are “designed to appeal to a wide cross section of their fans, with music to excite first time listeners, while super-deluxe box sets will cater to dedicated fans,” according to an issued press release.
“A series of different listening experiences have been specially created for this release: in addition to remastered CD’s called ‘Discovery’ and the ‘Immersion’ CD / DVD / Blu-ray / memorabilia box sets will be a series of ‘Experience’ Editions – coupling one classic album with a further disc of related content from that album to offer a deeper listening experience.”
The fun kicks off September 27th with the reissuing of all 14 of the band’s studio albums. Available individually or as part of a box set set, the ‘discovery’ editions will be digitally remastered and include new artwork designed by Storm Thorgerson, the band’s longtime Art Director. Also available on the 27th will be expanded deluxe and special edition versions of Pink Floyd’s 1973 classic The Dark Side Of The Moon, in a 6-disc ‘Immersion’ box set and ‘Experience’ 2-disc versions, as well as a collectors’ vinyl LP and various digital formats.
