For the first time in 20 years, Pink Floyd fans will be able to get their hands on one of rock music’s most extensive and sought-after discographies. Better yet, the band has announced the entire reissue will be on vinyl.
Although full catalog release dates will be rolled out over the course of this year, as of now, we know that Pink Floyd Records is putting out the initial batch on June 3, marking the first time a release of this kind by the English psychedelic rockers has happened in more than two decades.
Fans can expect to see the records contained in replications of their original packaging, with Pink Floyd’s first four albums—1967’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, 1968’s A Saucerful of Secrets, the 1969 soundtrack for More, and the 1969 live/studio double-LP set Ummagumma—as the first records to be reissued.
James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman oversaw the remastering of the first four reissues. Warner Music will handle distribution in Europe, while Sony Music will cover everywhere else. Meanwhile, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters is still going strong and set to play epic rock festival Desert Trip in October. It’s a good year to be a Floyd fan.
