Pink Floyd catalog to be reissued on vinyl

Posted May 6, 2016 by Floydian Slip

albums

Pink Floyd will begin reissuing its catalog on vinyl this spring.

The first of the series of remastered LPs will arrive June 3 on the group’s new Pink Floyd Records label, a division of Columbia: “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn” (1967), “A Saucerful of Secrets” (1968), “More” (1969) and “Ummagumma” (1969).

The albums will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl and feature packaging that imitates the original releases.

Floyd plans to release more LPs from its catalog throughout the year. It’ll be the first time in more than 20 years the complete Floyd catalog will be available on vinyl.

The first batch have been mastered by long-time Floyd collaborators James Guthrie and Joel Plante; and Bernie Grundman, who’s mastered Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller,” Prince‘s “Purple Rain,” Dr. Dre‘s “The Chronic” and others.
