Need ANOTHER collector’s edition of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon? You’re in luck!

There are some fans that will buy everything and everything from their favourite act. Rush fans are among that crowd. So are a lot of Beatles aficionados. And we can throw Pink Floyd followers into that bucket. If I’m honest, I’m swimming around in there, too.

I have eleven copies of The Dark Side of the Moon (the original vinyl plus several subsequent upgrades, several versions of the CD, one box set, and a couple of framed posters). I know. It’s a sickness. But this is what collectors do.

it appears I will be adding one more to the pile. A new remasters Dark Side album will be released on “collector’s edition UV artwork vinyl” on April 19.

I quote from the press release:

“This new edition of the album will feature the prism spectrum seen through the playable side of the vinyl whilst maintaining the best quality sound that fans will expect. It will be packaged in a slipcased gatefold sleeve, with an exclusive poster.

“This is the first time that Pink Floyd has used this pioneering UV printing process on vinyl. The images are printed with a high end UV printer, using UV-Led light to dry the permanent ink on the side without audio on which the image is printed. This combination of one-sided audio and the UV print (on the side without audio) combines the best of both worlds: perfect audio and a beautiful image to enjoy.”

Sold. Damn.
