Echoes "Best Of" gets repackaged Print E-mail

Sidling quietly onto North American record store shelves at the start of this month (October 3rd, to be exact) came a slightly different looking version of the Pink Floyd's "best of" compilation, Echoes.

Released by Capitol in the US, and EMI Music Canada north of the border, the new edition features a new, biodegradable wrap. Whilst most wraps are fairly dispensible, this one actually makes a point of its environmental credentials and even suggests that you can safely discard it!

Echoes 2006 repackage

The wrap covers the standard packaging as released back in 2001. The normal inlay/booklet, featuring complex and detail-drenched Storm Thorgerson artwork, hinting at various aspects of the band's history, is unaltered. The CDs themselves, featuring remastered (and in some cases, re-edited) classics, are also unchanged.

The new wrap certainly brings the contents to the attention of the casual shopper and this is presumably why it has been introduced. We're pleased that the record companies haven't removed the original artwork, as so often happens during repackaging exercises.

Should you not already have the compilation, this new version can be ordered through the following special links: Amazon US/International, Canada, and as an import from Amazon UK/Europe, France, or Germany. Any item bought through these links at Amazon (not just Floyd items) helps with the running costs of the site, and we really appreciate it.
