For the First Time In Over 2 Decades the Complete Pink Floyd Catalog To Be Available On Vinyl!

For the first time in over two decades, Pink Floyd Records will begin the reintroduction of the Pink Floyd 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 2LP-set Ummagumma. 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. 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 featuring Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason first broke onto the music scene in 1967, with the hit single "Arnold Layne." Despite the departure of Syd Barrett, the group, which now included David Gilmour, recorded some of the most innovative and ground breaking records of their era, culminating in 1973 with one of the biggest selling albums of all time, The Dark Side Of The Moon. There followed numerous global number 1 albums, including The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, The Final Cut and 2014's finale, The Endless River.
"See Emily Play," which was produced by EMI's Norman Smith, charted at number six and made it on to primetime TV's Top of the Pops three times (with Barrett acting increasingly strangely). This was followed in August by Pink Floyd's first LP, The Piper At The Gates of Dawn, which they recorded at Abbey Road next door to the Beatles, then working on Sergeant Pepper. Again making the Top Ten, the album is mainly Barrett's and is a precious relic of its time, a wonderful mix of the whimsical and weird.
