On February 28, EMI will release 'Immersion' and 'Experience' editions of Pink Floyd's massive opus 'The Wall,' as the final installment of the recent 'Why Pink Floyd?' reissues and extended releases. The best part? CraveOnline's hooking you up with the Discovery edition box set!
Released in November 1979, 'The Wall' topped the album charts in the US, France, Germany, Sweden and Australia. "Another Brick In The Wall, Part 2" – Pink Floyd's first UK single since 1968 – became a Number 1 hit, selling more than one million copies within weeks of its release. 'The Wall' remains Pink Floyd's biggest-selling release after 1973's legendary 'The Dark Side Of The Moon.'
'The Wall' 'Immersion' 7-disc edition includes a DVD featuring a film clip from the 1980 tour and a 'Behind The Wall' documentary, plus, for the first time, CDs of excerpts from Roger Waters' original demos and work-in-progress versions of songs on the final album. Additionally, among these previously unheard versions are David Gilmour's original demos of "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell." The Immersion set also includes The Wall Live, compiled from the 1980-1981 original tour.

Both 'The Wall' Immersion box set and Experience edition include a rare recording of "Another Brick In The Wall Part 1." A highlight for fans, this demo showcases the evolution of the final track. Additionally, "The Doctor" explores the origins of the landmark track "Comfortably Numb," giving further insight into Pink Floyd's early demo recordings.
Following on from the 'Immersion' and 'Experience' editions of 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' and 'Wish You Were Here,' these new versions of 'The Wall' offer listeners a unique insight into another hugely successful chapter in the Pink Floyd story.
Pink Floyd: 'The Wall' Immersion box set, Experience edition and Collectors 180g 2LP Vinyl edition will be released February 28, 2012 through EMI. The remastered Discovery edition is out now. Pick all of it up over at iTunes/PinkFloyd.
