Two more Pink Floyd reissues coming to vinyl

Posted October 10, 2017 by Floydian Slip

On Nov. 17, Pink Floyd Records will reissue on vinyl the albums “A Collection of Great Dance Songs” (1981) and “Delicate Sound of Thunder” (1988).

This will be the first time those albums have been available on LP for more than 20 years. They’ll be the band’s first “best of” and live albums to be remastered on vinyl.

Over the past two years, Floyd has released its entire studio collection as stereo remasters on heavyweight 180g vinyl. All have been mastered from original analogue studio tapes with original album artwork.

“A Collection of Great Dance Songs’” was certified double platinum by the RIAA in 2001. A compilation of previously released tracks, it also contains a complete re-recording of “Money” recorded almost entirely by David Gilmour alone.

“Delicate Sound Of Thunder” was recorded live over five nights in August 1988 at Nassau Coliseum, Long Island, N.Y. It went on to become the first rock album to be played in outer space.

Rick Wright’s sailboat for sale

Posted September 28, 2017 by Floydian Slip

A boat lies waiting for you … if you’ve got £450 to spend.

Evrika, the Nautor Swan 65 yacht that once belonged to Pink Floyd’s Rick Wright, is for sale.

Built in 1982, Wright bought the vessel in ’84 and owned it until his death in 2008. He lived on board the boat while he sailed the Greek islands during his hiatus from the Floyd following “The Wall” and before regrouping with David Gilmour and Nick Mason for “A Momentary Lapse of Reason” in ’87. It’s only had three owners in its lifetime.

While Evrika has been refurbished, it still retains many of its original features. The interior, at least, is entirely original.

Sale of the vessel is being handled by Berthon International Yacht Brokerage of Lymington, U.K. Contact Sue Grant at sue.grant@berthon.co.uk and see more details on the Berthon website.

Wright’s passion for sailing is referenced in “A Boat Lies Waiting,” a song on Gilmour’s album “Rattle That Lock.”

New Pink Floyd memoir published

Posted August 5, 2017 by Floydian Slip

(Update 8/6/17: The order page for the book is again accepting pre-orders, with an estimated ship date of Aug. 24.)

A just-published memoir from a late friend of Pink Floyd has already sold out. “In the Pink (Not a Hunting Memoir)” by Nick Sedgwick covers the time he spent with the band during 1974-75.

There’s no word yet whether the title will be reprinted.

In a promotional piece for the book, Roger Waters calls Sedgwick “one of my oldest friends,” and explains the author traveled with the band throughout England during its “Dark Side of the Moon” tour, as well as into America during ’75.

“When Nick finished the work in 1975 there was some resistance in the band to its publication,” Waters explains, “not surprising really as none of us comes out of it very well.”

Sedgwick died of brain cancer in August 2011.

Proceeds from the book go to Sedgwick’s family.
