CraveOnline has gotten caught up in the wave of celebrations for Pink Floyd's legendary legacy – with an awesome giveaway: the band's entire massive catalogue!
With a campaign aimed at unreleased music from the archives, a wave of collectors' box sets and remastered studio recordings are being launched, with comprehensive release schedule encompassing CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, SACD, an array of digital formats, iPhone Apps and a brand-new single-album 'Best Of' collection.
The legendary band, who are still among the most successful and iconic musical acts of all time, recently signed an agreement with EMI which has allowed the development of a multi-format program of packages.
We'll get to that in a sec – but in the meantime, if you're down to win this awesome 14-CD Discovery Edition package spanning Pink Floyd's entire catalogue, all you need to do is follow @CraveMusic on Twitter, and shoot us a message with the hashtag #FreeFloyd. And to those at the nursing home whose grandchildren haven't explained Twitter to them yet, if you don't have an account, a comment here at the bottom of the article will suffice for entry.
The planned reissue releases, under the banner Why Pink Floyd?, are designed to appeal to a wide cross section of their fans. Super-deluxe box sets will cater to dedicated fans, allowing them to immerse themselves in multi-disc sets, containing alternate takes, unreleased tracks, restored live concert screen films and a live recording of the legendary The Dark Side Of The Moon performance at Wembley in 1974.
A series of different listening experiences have been specially created for this release: in addition to remastered CD's 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.
Roger Faxon, CEO of EMI Group, said, "This is a unique collaboration between EMI and one of the most creative and influential bands in history. We have worked together for more than a year on this programme which incorporates all the elements that have made Pink Floyd one of the most inspiring forces in modern music. Why Pink Floyd? Because their music is without equal and these exciting new releases will allow music fans to rediscover their incredible legacy and demonstrate that an appreciation for artistic quality never goes out of fashion."
