Mason, Jackson hint at more reissues to come

Posted February 8, 2012 by Floydian Slip

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and long-time recording engineer for the band Andy Jackson have told Billboard more reissues might be on the way following this month’s boxset of “The Wall.”

“The idea was always to see whether people like these things or not. If they do, of course we could do more,” Mason says.

“There’s quite a bit of very, very early stuff, before they had a deal, with Syd (Barrett) in the band when they were still trying to be an R&B band,” says Jackson, who’s been a major player behind the boards of the entire “Why Pink Floyd?” remaster campaign.

“It’s not, like, early versions of songs that turned up on their albums or anything. It’s R&B classics, the same as everybody else was playing back them,” he adds. “There’s a lot of recordings that may be brilliant for a future project.”

“The Wall” will be released Feb. 28.

A couple weeks ago on “Floydian Slip” we played an early band demo of “Young Lust.”  Be listening for “The Doctor,” an early version of “Comfortably Numb,” on Show #828, airing on all 30 Random Precision Radio Network stations Feb. 16-22.

We’re enjoying hearing an early band demo of Pink Floyd‘s “Young Lust,” the first promo item shipped by EMI in anticipation of February’s re-release of “The Wall.”

Due Feb. 28, the “Immersion” and “Experience” editions of the album will include previously unreleased demos and alternate recordings, such as this one.

Both editions will include an alternate version of “Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 1,” as well as “The Doctor,” an early version of what would become “Comfortably Numb.”

The 7-disc “Immersion” set will also include David Gilmour‘s original demos of “Comfortably Numb” and “Run Like Hell” among many other rarities.

Listen for this band demo of “Young Lust” on Floydian Slip show #824, airing on all affiliate stations Jan. 19-25.

Correction: We’ll play it on show #825, Jan. 26-Feb. 1.

YouTube: Pink Floyd on the hour, every hour

Posted September 24, 2011 by Floydian Slip

Pink Floyd has beefed up its already pretty beefy YouTube channel with a new hourly feature: “The Greatest Gig in the Sky.”

Every hour, on the hour, the channel is featuring audio from its previously unreleased November 1974 Wembley show, along with original concert screen footage and a real-time social media stream.

The channel also features nearly 30 other Floyd videos, including this new full-length British advertisement for the Why Pink Floyd? remaster campaign:
