For the past two decades, the only way Pink Floyd fans have been able to pad their vinyl collections has been by digging deep into record store bins with fingers crossed. But it’ll soon be much easier to snatch up those releases, as the band has announced an extensive vinyl reissue campaign for its entire catalog.
Beginning June 3rd and lasting throughout the year, Pink Floyd Records will release fresh vinyl pressings of every record in the iconic rockers’ catalog, the first such releases in over 20 years. The first batch of reissues will include Floyd’s first four releases: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets, the soundtrack for More, and the live/studio double-LP set Ummagumma.
Each record will be housed in meticulously recreations of the original packaging. James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman handled mastering for the first four reissues, which will be distributed by Warner Music in Europe and Sony Music everywhere else.
Release dates for the rest of the catalog will be rolled out regularly throughout the year. Bellow, check out the cover art for the Ummagumma reissue.
