Pink Floyd has enjoyed more than a few years of reissue excitement with their careful handling of their classic album sets as well as the unearthing of extra material for inclusion into larger boxed sets. And their massive base of fans seem to never be satiated with every new reissue of the band’s catalog. Recently, the band announced a massive Box that gather all their early years into a definitive overview. Not to mention that the set is expected to break-out many of the discs for individual sale later in 2017. Great job, guys! (But why the short-shrift on Animals? Always Animals as an afterthought! I don’t get that!)
Also recently, the band has begun to reintroduce their catalog on exquisite vinyl LP editions. On June 3, Columbia Records released four titles (The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn – 1967, A Saucerful Of Secrets – 1968, More (soundtrack) – 1969, Ummagumma – 1969). Now the next batch is expected and has officially been announced by Legacy and Columbia Records.
On September 26, expect the reissued vinyl of Atom Heart Mother (1970), Meddle (1971), and Obscured By Clouds (1972). these albums will feature new remastering from the original analog master tapes. Each titles will be pressed on 180g-weight vinyl.
In addition, Legacy and Columbia will provide vinyl for The Wall, and The Division Bell. These two titles are expected on August 26.
