PINK FLOYD’S CD CATALOG GETS A MASSIVE REISSUE
By any standard, Pink Floyd has one of the mightiest catalogs in rock ‘n’ roll, a 14-album pantheon from 1967 to 1994 that has few rivals. Every so often, EMI remasters the batch with fresh sonics and, no question, this latest round gives Floydheads serious reason to rejoice. Let’s take a peek and check out the new goodies.
The big news is what’s being called the Immersion and Experience editions of Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall (this last one coming out in a 7-CD/DVD set). The Immersion sets are expensive, multi-disc sets with CDs, books, new artwork, and swag, but cooler are the Experience sets, which are expanded 2-CD editions. Every other disc in the Floyd catalog is being reissued as single Discovery discs that are simply remastered.
