Pink Floyd followers who balked at investing within the hefty Early Years, 1965 – 1972 box that arrived in stores last yr will soon have an opportunity to buy individual volumes from the set.
As previously reported, the initial Early Years box — which spans 27 discs collecting roughly 12 hours of audio and 14 hours of video — was released last Nov. 11, providing followers and collectors an “opportunity to listen to the evolution of the band and witness their part in cultural revolutions from their earliest recordings and studio sessions to the years prior to the release of The Dark Side of the Moon, one of many greatest promoting albums of all time.”
Naturally, all that content comes with a substantial price tag, however when Early Years was announced, the label promised its volumes would finally be parted out — a process that’s now scheduled for March 24, when six multi-disc book-bound packages are due to arrive.Get Our APP
As with the box, every volume covers a specific period within the Pink Floyd’s historical past. The first, CAMBRIDGE ST/ATION, follows Floyd from 1965-67, and fills a CD plus a DVD and Blu-ray; every subsequent volume focuses on a single yr, with a handful spilling over into a second CD in addition to the DVD/Blu-ray content. It all adds up to a complete bunch of audio and video, though because the press release announcing the brand new breakouts points out, the complete Early Years still contains “extra discs, collectibles and memorabilia exclusive to the box set.”
