Watch an Unboxing Video for Pink Floyd’s ‘The Early Years 1965-1972′
You won't be able to actually get your hands on Pink Floyd's The Early Years 1965-1972 box until later this year, but if you've been waiting to watch a copy open up without your help, today's your lucky day.
As previously reported, Early Years collects the band's output over the titular seven-year span, bundling it all into a 27-disc box that promises a "comprehensive" overview — as well as a generous helping of previously unreleased material. Due in stores on Nov. 11 and available to pre-order now, the set includes nearly 12 hours of audio and 14 hours of video that offer more than 20 unreleased songs and over seven hours of previously unreleased live audio, as well as more than five hours of rare concert footage. You can take a look at the complete track listing at the band's official site.
This unboxing video, which runs more than two minutes in length, is the second pre-release clip associated with The Early Years 1965-1972. In late August, the band debuted a video for "Grantchester Meadows," filmed for the BBC in 1969 during Pink Floyd's promotional campaign for that year's Ummagumma LP. You can watch the new unboxing video above.
It's been a busy season on the reissue front for the group. While saving up for The Early Years, fans have also been tempted by Pink Floyd's ongoing vinyl reissue series, which continued in August with The Wall and The Division Bell. They're scheduled to be followed on Sept. 23 with reissues of Atom Heart Mother, Meddle and Obscured by Clouds.
