Pink Floyd Box set 15 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 2  
I was near shocked watching in the HMV´s japanese mini lps pre-reserves area a Pink Floyd Box set scheduled for november 26.

I Pushed the link inmediately and it was in fact an Emi UK release. 16 disk including a DVD.

But... the japanese comments in that page talks about a december japanese release or something. The japanese translation of the comments was made by google but... who knows?

Cheers

Domingo

hi Sam / Keith,

this is the link!!! http://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/pink-floyd-mini-vinyl-studio-box-set.html

and this is a UK version mini lp box - so i expect the sleeves to be thinner. I was thinking of selling my Pink Floyd mini lp set but decided against it as i have a gut feel that the new box would be not same quality of sleeves as the jap mini lps



the cheapest you can get is on amazon.de and it is around US$ 230 with shipping [if you're outside Europe and there is no VAT applicable]
http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000X1LH6C/braindamage0f-21

This is my first post and must i say this is a real cool looking forum!!!

Sam - way to go mate!!

cheers,

Arvind

OK.....this is the big question. When for the Japanese release and how much? $230 US for this many CD's is really good. What is the remaster on these? I hope they went DSD.

Keith,

there is no clear information on remastering or DSD at all.

The only bits and pieces i can add up are that all the albums are geeting re-released on Feb 4, 2008 - which could be new mastering [else why would they release the albums]. If you sort the pink floyd albums by "release dates" on amazon sites you will find all albums slated for Feb 4, 2008 release...

obviously the box and these releases will be same sound sources as no one in right mind will use earlier masters for the box and remasters for Feb 4, 2008 releases... There is not enough information to conjecture at this stage...

Let us see what these sites say in a few days from now.


cheers,

Arvind

It´s not sure the japanese release. Was something in a customer coment.

When this EU release will come out we will know but right now I will conserve my entire japanese collection for sure.

Yes - Arvind mentioned to me that the covers are quite likely going to be thinner than the earlier Japanese releases - the old ones are certainly a benchmark in packaging.
