Mark your calendars for June 3 because for the first time in 20 years Pink Floyd is reissuing their first four albums on vinyl. These albums include The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967), A Saucerful of Secrets (1968), the soundtrack to the movie More (1969), and the two-LP set Ummagumma (1969).
Released through the band’s own label Pink Floyd Records, they have also promised more vinyl reissues throughout the year with efforts to replicate the original packing. Mastered by Floyd collaborators James Guthrie and Joel Plant along with Bernie Grundman (Thriller, Purple Rain), the first set of releases were pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
In an announcement about the vinyl deal, Columbia Records Chairman and CEO Rob Stringer stated: “We are proud to continue the long standing relationship in North America and beyond between Columbia Records and Pink Floyd. We are excited to work together with the band on their incredible musical legacy”.
