PINK FLOYD BOX SET OF ALL 14 STUDIO ALBUMS RELEASED IN MINI FAUX VINYL FORMAT TO CELEBRATE BAND’S 40TH ANNIVERSARY

The 40th Anniversary year of Pink Floyd ends with a typical flourish, the release of, Oh By The Way, a spectacular limited edition box set which contains, for the first time ever, the band’s 14 studio albums. These classic albums are presented in mini vinyl wallets with all the original extras also miniaturised. Floyd’s longtime design wizard, Storm Thorgerson, has designed a sumptuous box, as well as miniaturising the original sleeve artwork. Oh By The Way is released on EMI Records on 10 December (11 December in the US).




This unique box set is the first time in Pink Floyd’s incomparable history that all of their standard studio albums have been packaged together and made available as a set. In addition to the albums and their extras the set comes with a specially designed 40th Anniversary Storm Thorgerson fabric poster featuring 40 Floyd images.

Oh By the Way contains:

* THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN (Single wallet) August 1967
* A SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS (Single wallet) July 1968
* MORE (Single wallet) June 1969
* UMMAGUMMA (Gatefold 2 discs) November 1969
* ATOM HEART MOTHER (Gatefold) October 1970
* MEDDLE (Gatefold) November 1971
* OBSCURED BY CLOUDS (Single wallet rounded corners) June 1972
* THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON(Gatefold + 2 posters + 2 stickers) March 1973
* WISH YOU WERE HERE (Single + liner + postcard + black shrinkwrap) September 1975
* ANIMALS (Gatefold) February 1977
* THE WALL (Gatefold 2 discs) December 1979
* THE FINAL CUT (Single wallet) April 1983
* A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF REASON (Gatefold) September 1987
* DIVISION BELL (Gatefold) April 1994

Many of these 14 Pink Floyd albums regularly appear in the ‘Greatest’ lists of all time. They represent a body of artistic work which captured the imagination of fans across the globe.

Oh By The Way will be a must for the legion of Pink Floyd fans worldwide, who will note the careful reproduction of the original classic labels. The box set will no doubt be figuring high on the Christmas wish list of many of the new generation of Floyd fans, as the band’s musical legacy continues to exert a powerful appeal some 40 years after it played its first notes.

I think that the "The Boy, The Man" was cooler, but "Oh by the way" has some kind of English vibe and fits with the artwork. Waiting for the bigger pictures, looks promising.

WISH YOU WERE HERE (Single + liner + postcard + black shrinkwrap) - looking forward to see that!

the 40th anniversary year ends with another typical repackaging and squandering of a chance to open the archives

may I just note that The Final Cut was originally a gatefold as well, is the above a misprint?

What do you mean by single wallet? Just a cartboard cd sleeve? That's so cheap. :(

he he! EMI is really hitting the bottom with this boxsets thing GREEDY GREEDY

Are the DSoTM posters going to be mini-replicas too? a poster the size of a postcard! he he! and it seems that there isn't any kind of booklets on the albums either. Remasterization? extra songs? outtakes? I mean, the regular jewelcase CDs are ten times better than a piece of cardboard with no booklet.

edit:
In addition to the albums and their extras...
whoa!!!! I hadn't notice that. What the hell that "extras" means???

well i don't know the source of the photo but i'd imagine it's supposed to be him. it would seem odd to use a fake picture of syd...

wait a sec, are you claiming to have seen every picture of syd ever?
