As posted on Pink Floyd’s official website…
To mark the 40th anniversary of the original release of Pink Floyd’s first album ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’, a special edition is planned for release via EMI Records on Tues 28th August in North America, and Monday September 3rd in Europe.
The packaging, designed by Storm Thorgerson, resembles a cloth-covered book, and holds 3 CD discs, along with a 12-page reproduction Syd Barrett notebook.
Discs 1 and 2 will contain the full ‘Piper’ album, represented in both stereo and mono versions. Both have been newly remastered by James Guthrie.
Disc 3 includes bonus tracks, including the following: 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’.
Other activities surrounding the 40th anniversary celebrations will be announced in due course.
