Rarities from "Wish You Were Here" era (mainly "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", 7 different versions!),

Tigers Broke Free"/"Bring The Boys Back Home" single.
A TREE FULL OF SECRETS
the definitive Pink Floyd rarities compilation
On 18 CDs (yes, eighteen!) you'll find all the A and B sides of all the Pink Floyd singles, all the promo,
edited, obscured, or remixed versions, and all the soundtracks bits of your favorite Pink Floyd and solo
Basically, this collection includes (nearly) all songs officially released, but not on regular album (compilations,
singles, promos, soundtracks...), as well as rare versions from acetates and studio outtakes. We didn't
consider live tracks (concerts, radio or TV appearances), unless they're part of a single or a promo single.
We also left out of this scope the Syd Barrett solo rarities, because it mainly consists in slightly different
mixes of regular versions (we'd like to let a more hardcore fan than we are, doing the job). Some other
things are not included, mainly because they could be treed separately, as a whole entity: "Live At Pompeii"
and "The Wall" soundtracks, mono editions of albums ("The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", "A Saucerful Of
Secrets"), quadraphonic editions of albums ("Atom Heart Mother", "The Dark Side Of The Moon", "Wish You
There are in fact 17 audio CDs and one data CD. This latter CD contains all the artworks and booklets (with
all you ever dreamt to know about each track of each CD!), and some bonus files (that we hope you'll enjoy)
while keeping the secret about their contents.
We tried to make the most definitive Pink Floyd rarities compilation, in both completeness and sound quality.
For each track, we tried to find the best sounding version available. As a result, we're proud to say that a lot
of tracks sound better than any other version available elsewhere.
What we mean with the word "rarity":
1) Song officially released, but not on regular albums (compilations, singles, soundtracks...) 
2) Alternate mix (acetate...)
3) Outtake from unreleased studio session
 with an exception for the stuff being a part of a whole "entity"
(most of them are available separately, as other projects).
For instance, the following stuff is not included:
- "Live At Pompeii" soundtrack
- "The Wall" soundtrack
- mono "Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", "A Saucerful Of Secrets"
- quadraphonic "Atom Heart Mother", "Dark Side Of The Moon", "Wish You Were Here"
- "Delicate Sound Of Thunder" video
- "P*U*L*S*E" video
"Chronological" rules for tracklist:
1) tracks are sorted by recording date, not release date 
2) different versions of the same track with same recording date are sorted by release date 
3) singles from the same album are listed in the same order than on the album 
 with an exception for the demos, placed before the actual release, to save "continuity" and to hear
how the song evolved from the demo to the released version.
 if the release date is the same or unknown, the versions are sorted from the most "usual" to the
most "unusual": single version -> extended version -> promo version
 unless the recording dates are known with precision for each track (in this case, see rule nr.1)
There are in fact 17 audio CDs and 1 data CD. This latter CD contains all the artworks and booklets, and
some bonus files.
Now, how are all these tracks organized into 17 audio CDs?
The first 8 CDs contain the Pink Floyd rarities (from 1965 to 1994).
The next 6 CDs contain the soundtracks (from Pink Floyd and members).
The last 3 CDs contain the solo members rarities.
The 17 CDs are split into 9 volumes (each volume is a 2 CD set, except volume 9, which is a single CD). So,
there are 9 different artworks, and the whole Rarities compilation will take the place of 9 jewel boxes in your
