The Piper At The Gates of Dawn - 40th Anniversary Edition

A special edition of Pink Floyd's debut album, The Piper At The Gates of Dawn, will be in stores on August 28th, to mark the 40th anniversary of its original release date. The packaging of the EMI Records set resembles a cloth-bound book and holds three CDs, plus a 12-page reproduction Syd Barrett notebook. The first two discs will contain both stereo and mono version of the album, newly remastered by producer/engineer James Guthrie, while the third disc includes bonus tracks, including all of the band's singles from 1967 ("Arnold Layne," "See Emily Play," "Apples And Oranges") and b-sides ("Candy And A Currant Bun" and "Paintbox"), as well as Take 2 of the original recording sessions.

As always, comments are welcome.
