PINK FLOYD The Later Years (FANTASTIC 2019 UK Super Deluxe Edition EIGHTEEN DISC Multi-Format Boxset – Comprising 5 CDs, 6 BLU-RAYS, 5 DVDs and TWO 7″ vinyl singles, the ‘Later Years’ focuses on the later period of their career when Roger Waters had quit and David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason were left to continue on their own to produce studio albums and undertake massive world tours.
Both ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’ and ‘Delicate Sound Of Thunder’ have been remixed, with the former also ‘updated’ [thought to be new Nick Mason drums and alternate Rick Wright parts] across the first three CDs while the fourth gathers together unreleased live and studio recordings and the fifth contains their 57 minute Knebworth concert from 1990. The Blu-Rays contain new 5.1 mixes of the two albums, a Restored & Re-edited version of ‘Pulse’, their Venice and Knebworth concerts and more; while the DVDs contains the content of five of the six discs; while the two vinyl etched 7″s include ‘Arnold Layne’ performed live by Pink Floyd at the Syd Barrett Tribute concert in 2007 and ‘Lost For Words’ from the Pulse tour rehearsals at Earls Court.
The stunning 13″ x 13.5″ x 3.5″ deluxe box shows some minor evidence of general light shelfwear but retains its wrap-around belly band and comes complete with a 60-page hard backed book of photos designed by Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis and Peter Curzon of Storm Studios, a newly-created set of reproduction tour programmes and a brand new Lyrics Book and all contents look in near ‘as new’ condition!).
