Unreleased Pink Floyd on market.

UNRELEASED material by rock legends Pink Floyd is to see the light of day as part of a huge reissue campaign this summer, as a result of the band settling its lengthy legal row with EMI.

The hoard of unheard recordings includes a version of classic track Wish You Were Here featuring jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli.

The reissues begin in September and feature expanded versions of the original albums on CD with DVDs and digital formats, which had originally proved a sticking point with the band.

The resolved legal row partly hinged on the band members' unease about their back catalogue being exploited digitally, with tracks being released individually rather than as part of an album. However they finally came to an agreement last year.

All 14 of the group's studio albums, from 1967's The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn to 1994's The Division Bell will be released on September 26, as well as a box set.
