The first wave arrives in June
Pink Floyd are to make their back catalogue available on vinyl for the first time in 20 years.
The vinyl reissue programme begins on June 3 with The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, A Saucerful Of Secrets, the soundtrack from the film More and the 2 LP set Ummagumma, which have been mastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman and will be pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
Pink Floyd Records will then reproduce the vinyl catalogue throughout the year with release dates being announced at regular intervals.
At the end of last year, Pink Floyd released a limited edition set of two 7″ singles, containing the band’s first recordings.
Entitled Pink Floyd 1965 – Their First Recordings, the songs include Syd Barrett compositions “Lucy Leave”, “Double O Bo”, “Remember Me” and “Butterfly”, coupled with Roger Waters’ “Walk With Me Sydney”, and “I’m A King Bee” by Slim Harpo.
