Pink Floyd will issue a new mono remaster of their landmark debut album The Piper Of The Gates Of Dawn for Record Store Day (April 21).
The 180g vinyl release has been remastered from the original 1967 mono mix by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman.
It comes packaged inside a card envelope featuring a new design by Hipgnosis’s Aubrey Powell and Peter Curzon, including a gold embossed version of the graphic by Syd Barrett which features on the reverse of the original mono LP. The package also includes a poster featuring the original photograph (taken by Colin Prime in Ruskin Park, South London) that inspired Syd’s graphic.
The April 2018 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – with Joni Mitchell on the cover. Elsewhere in the issue, we pay tribute to Mark E Smith and there are new interviews with The Breeders, Josh T Pearson, Brett Anderson, The Decemberists, Chris Robinson and many more. We also look at the legacy of Rick Hall’s FAME Studios. Our free 15-track CD features 15 tracks of this month’s best new music, featuring Graham Coxon, Gwenno, Guided By Voices, Jonathan Wilson, David Byrne, Tracey Thorn, The Low Anthem and Mélissa Laveaux.
