PINK FLOYD will release "The Early Years 1965-1972," on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11th on SONY's LEGACY RECORDINGS, a deluxe 27-disc box set featuring seven individual book-style packages, featuring never-before-released material.
The box set will contain TV recordings, BBC SESSIONS, unreleased tracks, outtakes and demos over 12 hours, 33 mins of audio (made up of 130 tracks) and over 15 hours of video. Over 20 unreleased songs, including seven hours of previously unreleased live audio, plus seven hours of rare concert footage are included, along with meticulously produced 7” singles in replica sleeves, collectable memorabilia, feature films and new sound mixes. Previously unreleased tracks include 1967’s "Vegetable Man" and "In The Beechwoods," which have been newly mixed for the release.
"The Early Years 1965-1972" will give collectors the opportunity to hear the evolution of the band from their earliest recordings and studio sessions to the years prior to the release of "The Dark Side Of The Moon."
In addition to the deluxe set, a two-CD highlights album "The Early Years – CRE/ATION," will also be available on the same date through PINK FLOYD RECORDS.
Each individual book-style package will be released separately early in 2017, except "Bonus Continu/ation," which is exclusive to this box set, which includes a CD of early BBC radio sessions, the audio tracks from the film "The Committee," PINK FLOYD’s live soundtrack to the 1969 NASA moon landings, and more.
Audio-visual material includes two other feature films, "More" and "La Vallée’ (Obscured By Clouds)," plus more live footage and festival performances.
