Pink Floyd – The Later Years 1987-2019 box set

Well, this is one that many have been waiting for. With the release of The Early Years, things looked inevitable and logical for The Later Years to happen, although as with anything, nothing is certain until it happens! Many people have questioned why the Floyd have missed The Middle Years, although one could argue that broadly speaking, much of that ground has been covered by the Immersion sets. There’s also a certain inevitability that there was a lot less material that the band could call on – the beginnings of the band saw them appear on countless TV and radio stations, something that dried up as time went on. They were also a band who in the later years would keep working on an idea through to fruition, rather than have endless abandoned ideas and early versions. We’ve covered the contents elsewhere; suffice it to say, with over 13 hours of unreleased audio and audiovisual material, there’s plenty of new stuff to explore, along with material which has been readdressed and given a 2019 polish. First impressions as you face the box are very strong. A fine job has been done with the presentation of this set – the box and the inner housing reek of quality. Easing the front lid to the side (it is attached, so opens like a very large book) reveals the first of the contents: the three reproduction tour programmes (1987-88, 1989 and 1994) along with a lyric book, all banded together. Under that is the large format, hardback covered photo book which covers the era in question, then there is the memorabilia pouch, which is in something akin to a vinyl album sleeve. In here are repro posters, tickets, passes, and the two 7 vinyl singles – one with Lost For Words (PULSE tour rehearsal edit) and the other, Arnold Layne recorded at the Barrett tribute held at London’s Barbican in 2007. Once these have all been removed, you are down to the final layer – the hardback covered CD/Credits Book which houses the five CDs in the set (numbered 1-5), the six Blu-rays (6-11) and five DVDs (12-16) all housed in individually designed cardboard sleeves. Each of the discs in cardboard sleeves sits in thin plastic sleeves, to protect them from any damage when sliding them in or out of the card. A nice, simple touch but could make a difference in the long term.

Pink Floyd The Later Years box set – further price drop

Click here for the track listing of the box set (http://www.brain-damage.co.uk/miscellaneous-articles/pink-floyd-the-later-years-1987-2019-box-set-track-li-2.html). Some good news for those who have been wondering about ordering it, or for those who already have, through Amazon – they have reduced the price in a number of their stores for the box set. At time of writing this, Amazon UK are currently offering it for £272.76 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07WP7568V/ref%3Das_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8 camp=1634 creative=19450 creativeASIN=%20%20B07WP7568V linkCode=as2 tag=braindamage-21) which is the lowest price they’ve had for it, so far. Those who have already pre-ordered it through them will automatically pay the lowest price it was advertised for, between when they ordered it, and release date, so there’s no need to cancel your order and re-purchase. Each Amazon store seems to set their own price, so it is worth shopping around, and also note they will send things like this worldwide. For those who need reminding, let’s take a look at what is on offer. Looking at the largest item first, the box set, this consists of 5 CDs in a 60-page hardback book, 6 Blu-rays and 5 DVDs, each in gatefold wallets, 2 7 vinyl singles with material never released, a 40-page hardback photo book, replica tour programmes, and a reproduction memorabilia collection. The box set offers over six hours of previously unheard audio and over seven hours of previously unseen audiovisuals from A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, The Division Bell and The Endless River albums. The CDs take in the 2019 remix of A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, a 2019 remix of Delicate Sound Of Thunder, a disc of live B-sides and unreleased material from The Division Bell, and a new remix of the 1990 Knebworth concert. With AMLOR, the album is presented for the first time in 5.1, and has been updated and remixed by David Gilmour and Andy Jackson. The release of The Later Years project gives an opportunity for a fresh overview of this album. By returning to some of Richard Wright’s keyboard parts and recording new drum tracks with Nick Mason, producers David Gilmour and Bob Ezrin have restored the creative balance between the three Pink Floyd members. The Blu-rays include 5.1 surround sound mixes of the above, as well as The Division Bell, a restored and remixed Delicate Sound of Thunder and includes additional tracks not on the original release, a re-edited PULSE, the full Venice 1989 and Knebworth 1990 concert films (Knebworth includes Great Gig In The Sky), along with music videos, the full range of tour screen films (including the very amusing Money screen film from 1994 with a very retro looking alien complete with ray gun), documentaries, and a new film by Ian Emes for The Endless River album. The DVDs replicate the above material with the exception of the surround sound mixes, which are only on the Blu-rays. The two 7 vinyl singles host two previously unreleased songs – Arnold Layne from the 2007 Syd Barrett tribute concert at the Barbican, and Lost For Words recorded at the rehearsals for the 1994 Earls Court shows. The double vinyl LP and CD highlights packages bring together a flavour of the full set, taking in tracks from Knebworth, The Division Bell sessions, the Momentary Lapse remix, Delicate Sound and more. This has different artwork to the box set. If you missed it, here’s another sneak preview from The Later Years that is now available to hear – the 2019 remix of One Slip, which BD’s Ed Lopez-Reyes has reviewed elsewhere on our site.
