The Discovery Collection – Remastered Albums

discovery-boxset.jpg
All of the studio albums will be getting remastered using the latest modern sound technology to add extra depth to the original recordings.

These albums will be available to purchase separately, or as one large boxset called The Discovery Collection and will be available from 26th September 2011.

All re-engineering of the sound has been completed by long-time Pink Floyd associate James Guthrie and artwork is by Storm Thorgerson.

If you are fairly new to Pink Floyd and only have a couple of albums, then this discovery range will be ideal for you. The purchase price will be a lot less to buy the boxset rather than every album individually. Hence you will be able to complete your studio album collection rather quickly!

Experience and Immersion Editions

In addition to all the remastered studio albums, there will be three albums released as Experience and Immersion editions with varying amounts of new material on them. The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall will all be released as Experience boxsets which include lots of new goodies for all FLoydians!

Experience editions are expanded versions of classic albums in a Digipak bonus disc format. Included are the original remastered album, a disc of additional material and an expanded CD booklet.

  • Dark Side of the Moon (September 26th 2011) has on disc 2 a live concert recording from the BBC Archives from November 1974 at Wembley.

  • The Wall (February 27th 2012) has on disc 2 and 3 have content that is still to be announced. I believe Roger Waters et al are working on this release.

All material from the experience editions is included as well as all of the amazing goodies belwo. This is what fans have been calling out for during the past many years!
