New! 10 CD, 9 DVD, 8 Blu-ray and five 7-inch vinyl box set!

27-disc box set features seven hours of unreleased music!

Includes never-before-heard Syd Barrett tracks, a 4.0 Quad mix of Atom Heart Mother and more!

Nearly every notable event from Pink Floyd's "early years" is chronicled in a massive new box set called The Early Years 1965-1972. To a lot of Pink Floyd fans this is the legendary group's most interesting period — a short but important span of time that takes listeners from the Syd Barrett psychedelic era right up to the cusp of the astonishing Dark Side of the Moon.

The Early Years 19675-1972 collects studio outtakes, remixes, and B-sides as well as recordings of radio sessions and live performances. Culled together it makes for 11 hours of audio and 14 hours worth of video spread out across a mind-numbing 27 discs.

More than seven hours of the audio is previously unreleased, including tracks with Syd Barrett dating back to 1967 ("Vegetable Man" and "The Beechwoods") and a 1967 session with John Latham for a never-released short film called "Speak." Also featured: "Moonhead" played live on BBC television during the 1969 moon landing; unreleased recordings from the band's "Zabriskie Point" soundtrack; and a new remix of 1972's Obscured By Clouds.

The box set also boasts five hours of rarely seen concert footage, the band's first five singles pressed on 7-inch vinyl in replica sleeves, and 4.0 Quad mix of Atom Heart Mother. The vinyl is remastered from the original tapes with replicated original sleeves and labels.
