Box sets are difficult phenomena. Their cost is often prohibitive, and the weight of outtakes, alternate takes, chronological corrections, and myriad other completist elements make them sometimes less listenable than the original recordings. But this mammoth nine-CD package is a different breed of cat. It collects a smattering of early Pink Floyd, including the great hits and misses caught on Relics, A Saucerful of Secrets, and Meddle, and then moves into the band's great period, with Dark Side of the Moon and their first Sony titles, Wish You Were Here and Animals. Their development from early psychedelicists to producers of suite-length musical ponderings is great to witness. And it's even more fascinating to see where the band went with what they'd learned by 1977. To that end, the set includes The Wall in its entirety as well as A Momentary Lapse of Reason. No doubt about it, this is a huge investment, but the packaging, thoroughness, intent, and impact all warrant that even casual fans should make the leap ahead into the fullness this box offers. --Andrew Bartlett

Format: Audio CD
Pink Floyd released their 9-CD box set Shine On in November of 1992. The box was released to commemorate the band's 25th anniversary as a recording act. Compiling a box was not an easy task. Instead of pulling songs from each album, the band(mainly guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason and keyboardist Rick Wright) with some help from estranged bassist/vocalist Roger Waters and the extra help from longtime friend James Guthrie and Doug Sax remastered seven chosen albums which represented the best of the band's history. The classics were picked(Meddle, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall) and one transition album(A Saucerful of Secrets) and the band's comeback(A Momentary Lapse of Reason) all from the original master tapes. Since there were no outtakes, the band released their first five singles on a bonus disc called The Early Singles which uses the mono mixes of the songs. Four of the songs had not ever been released on album in the US(Candy and a Currant Bun, Apples and Oranges(unreleased in the US), It Would Be So Nice and Point Me at the Sky(unreleased in the US)), three not ever on CD(Paintbox, Julia Dream and Careful With That Axe Eugene) and three had been on CD in the US(Arnold Layne, See Emily Play and The Scarecrow). I first got this box set for Christmas in 1992 and was a great box set and made the original late 80s CDs and the Mobile Fidelity discs sound pale in comparison. Also, the book was excellent as it had some rare photos and historical info about each album and the artwork was superb.Read more ›

This box set arrived in a timely fashion. It was in new condition, and still had the original packaging. I had purchased this box set when it was originally released in 1991, there was an issue with one of the CD's and so it was returned, and I have been trying to purchase it ever since. We recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and this was the perfect gift. The seller was very accomodating.

This box set went Platinum immediately but is unfortunately out of print in the US as the band is no longer on Columbia. Highly recommended if you are a newbie to Floyd!
