Pink Floyd catalog back on vinyl, first time in two decades!
Mastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman
For the first time in more than two decades, Pink Floyd's Record Company will begin the reintroduction of the band's classic catalog on vinyl. The first four records to be released in June 2016 include The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful Of Secrets, the soundtrack from the film More and the two-LP setUmmagumma. Pink Floyd Records will reproduce the vinyl catalog throughout the year with release dates being announced at regular intervals.
Special care has been taken to replicate the original packaging (foldovers on the back!!). The first set of releases, mastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman, will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl for optimum sound quality.
Pink Floyd's third album Soundtrack From the Film More, was released in July of 1969. More was the band's second film score. Their first was for a movie called The Committee in 1968, which was not ever released until recently (only on DVD). Then, French film director Barbet Schroder (whom would go on to direct "Single White Female," "Reversal of Fortune," "Barfly" and "La Vallee (which was another movie Pink Floyd would do the film score for and release as theObscured by Clouds album). More was a story of love and betrayal set on the then hippie island of Ibiza. The band went to Abbey Road Studios and also Pye Studios in London to record the score to the film and emerged with 13 tracks (half with vocals and half instrumental) in just over a week.
