Pink Floyd 1969 Dramatis/ation 2CD + DVD + Blu-ray Box Set
Pink Floyd will release a series of book-bound individual collections of the band's seminal music from 1965-1972. The six individual collections were first released as part of The Early Years 1965-1972 box set. Whether a fan of the early Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, or to the final moments before The Dark Side of The Moon, there is something for everyone in these volumes for fans and newcomers alike. The separate volumes are now broken down by years 1965-1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971 and finally 1972.
Outtakes and demos from the band's early albums including The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful Of Secrets, Meddle and Atom Heart Mother are included in these packages. Each package documents the creative genius behind each Pink Floyd recording and even the titles (Cambridge St/ation, Germin/ation, Dramatis/ation, Devi/ation, Reverber/ation, Obfusc/ation) have been dreamed up by Roger Waters to give an insight into where the band was at that particular point in their career.
The Early Years: Individual Volumes afford fans the opportunity to hear the evolution of the band and witness their part in the cultural revolution from their earliest recordings and studio sessions to the years prior to the release of The Dark Side Of The Moon, one of the biggest selling albums of all time. From the single "Arnold Layne" to the 20-minute epic "Echoes," fans will see the invention of psychedelic progressive rock via an insightful collection that explores the Pink Floyd story from the time Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason and Syd Barrett met at London's Regent Street Polytechnic through to Syd's departure and David Gilmour joining the band to form the iconic lineup.
In 1969 Pink Floyd unveiled their 2-part conceptual live production of The Man and The Journey, covering a 24-hour period of dreaming, waking and other activities. Never released in that form, however some of the songs were used on the More soundtrack and the Ummagumma album. Third volume, 1969 Dramatis/ation, refers back to The Man and The Journey tour with live performances in Amsterdam and for the BBC in London, but also includes the bonus tracks from the More soundtrack that were used in the film but not on record, plus non-album tracks like the early version of "Embryo" from the Harvest sampler Picnic.
Video material includes 20 minutes of "The Man"/"The Journey" rehearsal at the Royal Festival Hall, directed by Anthony Stern, including "Afternoon" ("Biding My Time"), "The Beginning" ("Green Is The Colour"), "Nightmare" ("Cymbaline"), "Beset By Creatures Of The Deep" and "The End Of The Beginning" (the last part of A Saucerful Of Secrets), plus other live performance footage from that year.
