Pink Floyd - The Later Years (Box Set) (2019)

Pink Floyd - The Later Years (Box Set) (2019)

Tracklist front / back album covers

CD 1: A Momentary Lapse of Reason (Updated & Remixed)

A Momentary Lapse of Reason was the band's first album after the departure of Roger Waters and helmed by David Gilmour. All of the album's drum parts have been re-recorded by Mason for the 2019 version (not all drum parts were played by Mason on the original release) and more of keyboardist Rick Wright's parts have been included (replacing parts which were played by session musicians on the original). "On the Turning Away" has a new lead vocal part taken from a live recording to replace the original studio recording. The album has been remixed for 2019. A standalone version was released on 29 October 2021 in deluxe CD and 2 disc 45rpm vinyl formats.

"Signs of Life"
"Learning to Fly"
"The Dogs of War"
"One Slip"
"On the Turning Away"

CDs 2 and 3: Delicate Sound of Thunder (Remixed)
The 1988 live album Delicate Sound of Thunder remixed and includes songs performed on the tour which were omitted from the original release due to the limitations of vinyl records. Some tracks are now presented in full which were shortened for the original release. "Money", however, has been truncated in order to accommodate the newly included and extended songs – the female a-cappella section and Pratt's bass solo have been removed. A few new elements have been included in the new version, taken from shows recorded in 1989, such as Wright's piano intro to "Us and Them" and extra children's chants included in "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)", obscuring Pratt's slap-bass interlude between Gilmour and Renwick's guitar solos. A standalone album was released on 20 November 2020.

Although portions of this live recording have been available in the past, on the album Knebworth – The Album (1990), this was the first time it has been made available in full and in this remixed state.

"Money" has been truncated in the same manner as the album version. The film still omits "Yet Another Movie", "Round and Around", "A New Machine", "Terminal Frost", "Welcome to the Machine", and "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)", however "Yet Another Movie", "Round and Around", "A New Machine", and "Terminal Frost" are featured as bonus material.

The Later Years is a box set by British rock band Pink Floyd released on 13 December 2019 by Pink Floyd Records. It follows the 2016 box set The Early Years 1965–1972, and compiles Pink Floyd's work under the leadership of David Gilmour after the departure of founding member Roger Waters in 1985.

The Later Years includes a remixed version of A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987), with restored contributions by keyboardist Richard Wright and new contributions by drummer Nick Mason, to "restore the creative balance between the three Pink Floyd members". It also includes surround sound mixes of A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell (1994).

Also included is an expanded version of the 1988 live album Delicate Sound of Thunder with additional tracks; re-edited versions of the concert films Delicate Sound of Thunder (1989) and Pulse (1995); a live recording of Pink Floyd's headline performance at the Knebworth 1990 charity concert; a previously unreleased concert film from Pink Floyd's performance in Venice; 5.1 surround sound mixes and high-resolution stereo mixes; single B-sides; demos from The Division Bell sessions; and memorabilia.

A single-disc compilation of "highlights" from the box set, The Later Years: 1987–2019, was released on 29 November 2019.
