This giveaway is ridiculous. Pink Floyd recently their Wish You Were Here Immersion Box Set in early November as part of a series of collections offered to hard core fans. They also have a Discovery Collection that includes 14 re-mastered albums by the legendary band. Here’s more info on the Discovery collection:

The ‘Discovery’ collection: 14 Remastered Studio Albums
Since 1967 Pink Floyd have produced one of the most outstanding and enduring catalogues in the history of recorded music. All 14 original Studio albums have now been painstakingly digitally remastered by James Guthrie (co-producer of The Wall), and are reissued with newly crafted packaging and booklets created by the band’s long-time artwork collaborator Storm Thorgerson.

‘Discovery’ albums are designed as an introduction to the artist, with all booklets including full album lyrics.

So here’s the deal. We have two prizes to give away to two readers:

  1. One Complete Pink Floyd Catalog (Discovery Collection pictured above) + 1 Re-Mastered Vinyl Wish You Were Here + 1 Pink Floyd Tee Shirt
  2. One Complete Pink Floyd Catalog (Discovery Collection pictured above)

The 14 CD catalog retails for $180 on Amazon (also available via iTunes) so this is a pretty insane giveaway. We’re extending this giveaway only to our Internet friends in social media. Here’s what you need to do to enter:

  1. If you aren’t a Facebook fan already, head over and “like” us or follow us on Twitter.
  2. Then just tweet this on Twitter or head to Facebook and like this post or leave a comment about Pink Floyd on our wall.

We’ll announce the winners on this post and in FB and Twitter and reach out to you for your mailing address.
