EMI to release unheard music by Pink Floyd

Recommended Posts

LONDON (Reuters Life!) – EMI will release unheard songs by Pink Floyd starting from September, the English rockers' record label said on Tuesday.

The tracks will be unearthed from archives as part of a multi-month schedule of releases, which will include collectors' box sets and remastered studio recordings.

"We have worked together for more than a year on this program which incorporates all the elements that have made Pink Floyd one of the most inspiring forces in modern music," Roger Faxon, EMI chief executive, said in a statement.

The announcement comes four months after the long-time partners said they had signed a new five-year deal and ended their legal dispute.

Pink Floyd, who signed to EMI more than 40 years ago, are most famous for influential and acclaimed albums "The Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here" and "The Wall."

According to EMI, they have sold over 200 million albums worldwide, and in the United States alone, 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon has sold 45 million copies and is the country's third best-selling album ever.

Last year Pink Floyd and EMI were embroiled in a legal battle over the label's right to "unbundle" their albums and sell individual tracks online.

There is literally only a handful of professionally recorded shows of theirs, mostly just audio. I'm not talking about bootlegs that are circulating, I mean shows that they purposefully had recorded.

Besides, a lot of the shows in that link you provided do exist, and are circulating on the Internet; you just have to be willing to look for them.
