Meanwhile, The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains runs from May 13 – October 1, 2017 at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. The exhibition includes more than 350 objects and artefacts on display, many of them never before seen, including hand-written lyrics, musical instruments, letters, original artwork and stage props.

Being a Floyd fanatic I will obviously buy this. I have everything they have done since Ummagumma days - either as a group or solo. For me they are simply the most creative group the planet has produced so far. I don't care for the earlier stuff with Syd at all. You can rest assured there will be some controversial statements contained in this release.

Can't help feeling that at some point he is going to reveal what the other words are on the album cover that have been blacked out.

As the veterans here on MD know, I am a Beatle fanatic but not quite a fool yet! lol,,Yes J Man ,Pink Floyd to me are the perfect and complete band for certain ! You have no argument from me! Not exactly a Hits Top 40 band like the Beatles but a tremendously masterful band and that guitar sound from Gilmour !!!!! Also I do like Syd's contributions on The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets! Time to listen to Floyd's entire discography!QUOTE=Jerome;146145]Being a Floyd fanatic I will obviously buy this. I have everything they have done since Ummagumma days - either as a group or solo.
