For those who have missed out on Pink Floyd The Early Years 1965-1972 box set, either due to the cost, or only being interested in part of the contents, some good news for you. On March 24th 2017, Pink Floyd are releasing a series of book-bound individual collections from the box set, under the title 'The Early Years, 1965-1972: The Individual Volumes'.
These individual volumes are broken down into the years 1965-1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971 and finally 1972. As those familiar with the contents of the box set will know, these go under the titles CAMBRIDGE ST/ATION, GERMIN/ATION, DRAMATIS/ATION, DEVI/ATION, REVERBER/ATION, OBFUSC/ATION, which (it has been revealed) were titles dreamt up by Roger Waters to give an insight into where the band were at that particular point in their career. Each of these sets will be presented as they are in the box set, with a selection of reproduction memorabilia tucked into part of the fold-out packaging. Our extensive review of Pink Floyd: The Early Years 1965-1972 box set can be seen here, along with the full track listing of the box set and thus, the individual volumes too.
Just to clarify, the box set also included an exclusive selection of additional material, BONUS CONTINU/ATION, which is not getting a standalone release, nor will the additional memorabilia or reproduction vinyl singles be getting a release outside of the box set.
The complete Early Years box set is still available from most retailers, as is the 2CD highlights album The Early Years – CRE/ATION.

It is worth checking the other Amazon stores, rather than just your local one, as pricing varies hugely; they will ship internationally. Buying through our links will give a small but vital contribution toward running this site, and is hugely appreciated. There is NO region coding on the Blu-ray and/or DVD discs, so if purchasing from a different region (e.g. you're in North America, buying from Europe, or vice versa), then all discs should be compatible with your players.
