Unheard Pink Floyd songs released

Unreleased material by rock legends Pink Floyd is to see the light of day as part of a huge reissue campaign this summer, as a result of the band settling its lengthy legal row with EMI.

The hoard of unheard recordings includes a version of classic track Wish You Were Here featuring jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli.

The reissues begin in September and feature expanded versions of the original albums on CD with DVDs and digital formats, which had originally proved a sticking point with the band.

The resolved legal row partly hinged on the band members' unease about their back catalogue being exploited digitally, with tracks being released individually rather than as part of an album. However they finally came to an agreement last year.

All 14 of the group's studio albums, from 1967's The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn to 1994's The Division Bell will be released on September 26, as well as a box set.

In addition there will be enhanced versions of three of the band's most successful releases, The Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall released over the coming months - either in "Immersion" versions with six-disc box sets with DVD and Blu-Ray, or "Experience" two-disc sets.

The extra discs will include unreleased demos and live recordings.

Grappelli's performance will be released on the Wish You Were Here rerelease in November. The Parisian gypsy-jazz maestro recorded a solo for the title track of the 1975 album but it was eventually put so low in the mix it was inaudible and he was not credited for his contribution.
