A deeper dive on "Why Pink Floyd" with Nick Mason

Posted by madhack on May 12, 2011

Rolling Stone has an article on the new Why Pink Floyd...? campaign, in which Nick Mason talks a bit about the process of finding and choosing the previously-unheard material to be released. Those choices include early demos with a lucid Syd and a version of Wish You Were Here featuring a violin accompaniment.

Nick also muses on what makes Floyd's music so enduring and on what the point is of a new release of physical albums in this day and age ("I really think that this could be the last chance for really nice packaging – boxes, books, the whole thing," he notes).
