In November, Pink Floyd will release a 27-disc box set titled The Early Years 1965-1972. The collection will contain unreleased songs, concert recordings, video footage, memorabilia, and an updated version of the soundtrack to the 1970 film Zabriskie Point. Above, you can watch a music video for "Grantchester Meadows," one of the many gems that will be included on the release.

"Grantchester Meadows" first appeared on Pink Floyd's 1969 album Ummagumma. Comparing it to the original studio recording, this take is very similar, with the exception of Richard Wright's relaxing keyboard playing. The accompanying music video shows the beautiful English countryside interspersed with a live performance video of Roger Waters, David Gilmour, and Richard Wright.

The Early Years 1965-1972 is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon or by visiting Pink Floyd's official website.

The exhibition marks the first collaboration in decades of Pink Floyd’s remaining members..."
