In the Pink Floyd
Published Nov 28, 2011Everything Pink Floyd ever did was designed on a grand scale ― three-quarters of the group studied architecture after all ― so it's hardly a surprise that their catalogue is being retooled for the 21st century in perhaps the most expansive packages ever devoted to single albums. First up was Dark Side Of The Moon, which in its six-disc Immersion form added a full live version of the album performed in 1974, along with demos, films, remixes, books of photography by the band's art director Storm Thorgerson, and other treasures ― a set of marbles and a scarf emblazoned with the iconic prism. Now comes Wish You Were Here in a similarly styled package including live material, with the Immersion version of The Wall set to arrive at the end of February. If you're planning to shell out for these, you might also want to go the extra mile and upgrade your stereo.
