A teaser of the expanded Immersion Edition of Pink Floyd's The Wall and an opportunity to win one!

Tuesday February 28th marks the day that EMI releases the expanded edition of Pink Floyd's The Wall in both a super expansive Immersion Edition, as a three disc Experience Edition and on two slabs of vinyl! They've gone all out for this set -- the Immersion Edition is so extensive that comprehending it necessitates a trailer, so check out that video below!

Now a bit of info about this set from the press release:

On February 28, 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 Wallremains Pink Floyd’s biggest-selling release after 1973’s legendary The Dark Side of the Moon.

Released in November 1979, The Wall topped the album charts in the US, France, Germany, Sweden and Australia. “Another Brick In The Wall, Part 2” – Pink Floyd’s first UK single since 1968 – became a Number 1 hit, selling more than one million copies within weeks of its release.

Between 1980 and 1981, Pink Floyd staged 31 performances of The Wall in the US, UK and Germany. It was a spectacular show that included a 40-foot wall, constructed, brick by brick, across the front of the stage during the performance. In 2010 and 2011 Roger Waters toured a new production of The Wall to huge international acclaim. He was joined onstage in May 2011 at London’s 02 Arena by guitarist, David Gilmour and drummer, Nick Mason. He continues to tour in the Southern Hemisphere and North America in 2012.

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 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.

Were you wondering what the prizes were? We'll here they are! One lucky winner will receive an Immersion Edition (7 disc set) of The Wall.

And another lucky winner will receive one Experience Edition of The Wall (on 3 CDs) PLUS a copy of A Foot in the Door - The Best of Pink Floyd on CD.
