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.”
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.
