New version of floyd's piper at the gates of dawn?

I was going to buy the regular cd and then I saw this posted from another buyer







A new 40th Anniversary Edition of this CD has just been announced, a 3 CD Box Set!



Tuesday 5th June: Floyd Lays Plans For Piper



To mark the 40th anniversary of the original release of Pink Floyd's first

album 'The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn', a special edition is planned for

release via EMI Records on Tues 28th August in North America, and Monday

September 3rd in Europe.



The packaging, designed by Storm Thorgerson, resembles a cloth-covered book, and holds 3 CD discs, along with a 12-page reproduction Syd Barrett notebook.



Discs 1 and 2 will contain the full 'Piper' album, represented in both

stereo and mono versions. Both have been newly remastered by James Guthrie.



Disc 3 includes bonus tracks, including the following: all the Pink Floyd singles from 1967, ('Arnold Layne', 'See Emily Play', and 'Apples And Oranges'), plus the B sides 'Candy And A Current Bun' and 'Paintbox'. Other tracks are a version of 'Interstellar Overdrive' - Take 2 of the original recording sessions, previously only available on an EP in France - and the 1967 stereo version of 'Apples And Oranges'.



Other activities surrounding the 40th anniversary celebrations will be

announced in due course.

Still waiting on my SACD versions of Animals and WYWH.

I'll check this out though, thanks for the heads-up.

I hope you're patient. SACD is prettty much a dead format in the US. In fact the recent Genesis SACDs weren't even released in the US.

Genesis SACDs?!?! Which albums? Where can I get them??

Edit: Oh, I see, none of the Peter Gabriel albums. And not cheap, either.

Question about the bonus tracks on this set...I have the 'early singles' disc from the Shine On box set and, as far as I can tell, there really isn't anything new that wasn't included on that cd. What are the benefits to picking up this new edition?

Thanks!

Has the album been remastered again, or is it the same 1994 remaster?
