Gigantische Pink Floyd Box in aantocht
Door op 15 augustus 2016

Band: Pink Floyd
Album_title: The Early Years 1965-1972
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Label: EMI Records Ltd.

Liefhebbers van Pink Floyd kunnen alvast gaan sparen want op 11 november komt een zeer omvangrijke box set van de heren aan. Een box set met veel, heel veel onuitgebracht materiaal uit de periode 1965-1972. De box set heet The Early Years 1965-1972 en beslaat de periode waarin de band zeven albums uitbracht, namelijk The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn (1967), A Saucerful Of Secrets (1968), More (soundtrack to film) (1969), Ummagumma (1969), Atom Heart Mother (1970), Meddle (1972) en Obscured By Clouds (1972). De box bevat remixes, alternatieve versies, BBC sessies en beter nog tal van niet eerder verschenen nummers. De band heeft alles verzameld in een fantastische, peperdure set die werkelijk alle facetten van die periode beslaat.

De box bevat 10 CD’s, 8 BluRays, 9 DVD’s, 7 vinyl singles en tal van memorabilia zoals posters, flyers, concertkaartjes en veertig andere zaken. Zeven boeken gaan in op de zeven albums die in die periode zijn uitgebracht. Onder de vele niet eerder uitgebrachte nummers zitten ook de veel gezochte opnamen van de Zabriskie Point sessies. Daarnaast is er meer dan 14 uur videomateriaal waarvan 5 uur concertopnamen. Zes van de zeven delen zullen in 2017 worden uitgebracht. Het deel Continu/ation is echter een exclusief onderdeel van de box set.

Voor de fans met een kleinere portemonee komt er een 2CD versie met de naam Cre/ation: The Early Years 1967-1972, met daarop 27 nummers waarvan er 19 niet eerder zijn uitgebracht. Hieronder een (hopelijk) compleet overzicht en een video over de box set.
