Radio Dupree celebrates the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd's first album 'The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn' by choosing it for album of the month for August.
And the festivities continues: EMI will release a special edition of this classic album...a 3 CD set!
http://www.pinkfloyd.co.uk/ reports that it will be released on Tuesday 28th of August in North America, and Monday September 3rd in Europe.
The set includes 3 CD discs where discs 1 and 2 will contain the full 'Piper' album, in both stereo and mono versions. Both have been remastered. Disc 3 includes bonus tracks, including all the Pink Floyd singles from 1967, ('Arnold Layne', 'See Emily Play', and 'Apples And Oranges'), plus the B sides 'Candy And A Current Bun' and 'Paintbox'. Other tracks are a version of 'Interstellar Overdrive' - Take 2 of the original recording sessions, previously only available on an EP in France - and the 1967 stereo version of 'Apples And Oranges'.
The package (see picture) is designed by Storm Thorgerson.
