    On Feb. 28, prepare to immerse and experience, as EMI will release Immersion and Experience editions of Roger Waters' opus, Pink Floyd The Wall, as the final installment of the recent Why Pink Floyd? reissues and extended releases. 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 Wall 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.

    Are you nabbing copies? Immersing, experiencing or both?
