This coming September 2016, Pink Floyd are set to continue reintroduction of their back catalogue on vinyl with ‘Atom Heart Mother’, ‘Meddle’ and ‘Obscured By Clouds’ all remastered from the original analogue master tapes. Previous reintroductions ‘The Wall’ and ‘The Division Bell’ are also back in stock on vinyl from 26th August.
Pink Floyd followed their 60s albums with their fifth studio album, 1970’s ‘Atom Heart Mother’. Featuring the classic lineup of Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason, the LP went on to become the band’s first UK No.1 record.
In a short break from touring ‘Atom Heart Mother’, in 1971 Pink Floyd released the experimental album, ‘Meddle’. The LP saw the band move musical direction away from their original psychedelic sound, especially highlighted by the 23-minute track Echoes which occupied the entirety of the b-side of the record.
Pink Floyd’s seventh album ‘Obscured By Clouds’ was originally recorded as the soundtrack to the French film ‘La Vallée’ but released as a stand alone album in 1972.
‘The Piper at the Gates of Dawn’, ‘A Saucerful Of Secrets’, ‘More’, ‘Ummagumma’, are also available through Pink Floyd Records.
More information is available on the Pink Floyd website.
