Pink Floyd and EMI Music, whose association dates from 1967, announce a comprehensive release schedule, to be launched on Sept. 27, encompassing CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, SACD and a brand-new single-album ‘Best Of’ collection.

A series of different listening experiences have been specially created for this release: In addition to remastered CDs called ‘Discovery’ and the ‘Immersion’ CD/DVD/Blu-ray/memorabilia box sets will be a series of ‘Experience’ Editions – coupling one classic album with a further disc of related content from that album to offer a deeper listening experience.

Storm Thorgerson, the band’s longtime Art Director, has overseen the visual design, including new booklets for all the CDs, new artwork for the box sets and menus for the DVD content. Respected photographer Jill Furmanovsky has edited books of original unseen photographs. Pink Floyd collaborators James Guthrie (in the US) and Andy Jackson (in the UK) have been in charge of digital remastering to the highest audio and audiovisual standards.

Pink Floyd film archivist Lana Topham has supervised the painstaking restoration of many historic films from Pink Floyd’s classic era, included in the ‘Immersion’ box sets for ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ and ‘Wish You Were Here’.

First to be available on Sept. 27 will be:

– Expanded deluxe and special edition versions of Pink Floyd masterwork ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’, in a 6-disc ‘Immersion’ box set and ‘Experience’ 2-disc versions, as well as a collectors’ vinyl LP; plus 14 studio albums, digitally remastered, will be available separately or as a box set.

On Nov. 8, Phase 2 of the releases will include:

– Wish You Were Here ‘Immersion’ 5-disc and ‘Experience’ 2-disc editions, both of which will include bonus material from the band’s 1974 Wembley dates, including a 20-minute tour de force live rendition of ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, as well as a unique recording of ‘Wish You Were Here’ featuring the legendary jazz violinist, Stephane Grappelli. A collectors’ vinyl LP will also be available, as will various digital formats.

– Released simultaneously will be ‘A Foot In The Door – The Best Of Pink Floyd’, a collection of their most well known songs, contained on one album for the first time.

– The long-awaited 5.1 version of ‘Wish You Were Here’, mixed by James Guthrie, will also be released in parallel via independent label Acoustic Sounds.

‘The Wall’, which has sold 25-million double sets and has become a cultural and political touchstone over the last three decades, will be afforded the same exhaustive treatment on February 28, 2012, with deluxe packages including a 7-disc ‘Immersion’ set and a 3-disc ‘Experience’ edition. A collectors’ vinyl LP will also be available.
