Pink Floyd / Relics vinyl reissue
http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/ ... l-reissue/
March 23, 2018 by Paul Sinclair

In addition to the good news about their PULSE vinyl reissue, Pink Floyd are also set to reissue their first compilation album, Relics, on vinyl.

The album was issued by EMI back in 1971, about five months before the release of Meddle. Subtitled “A Bizarre Collection of Antiques & Curios” this set contains singles, B-sides and other tracks from their first three albums and features the Barrett-era non-album singles Arnold Layne and See Emily Play.

All tracks are the original stereo versions except for Arnold Layne and See Emily Play which are in mono. This is re-released on the same day as Pulse, 18 May 2018.

Roger Waters: Pink Floyd’s ‘Animals’ will be reissued in 5.1 surround sound
http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/ ... und-sound/
April 17, 2018 by Paul Sinclair

Roger Waters has confirmed that a 5.1 surround sound mix of Pink Floyd‘s 1977 album Animals is being prepared for release.

In an interview with Dutch radio station NPO Radio 2, Waters briefly mentions the artwork for Wish You Were Here before telling the host: “I’ve just been working with Po [Aubrey Powell]. There’s a reissue of Animals, I think, a 5.1 remix of Animals, and so he came up with some new photographs of Battersea Power Station, as it is now, to use as a CD cover for the new 5.1 mix. It’s beautiful”

Unfortunately the host of the show doesn’t ask any follow-up questions about this revelation (!) so we have no further details, right now. The ‘CD’ Roger refers to will not support a 5.1 surround mix – it would have to be on blu-ray audio and/or DVD for that.

In 2011, the ‘Immersion’ box sets of The Dark Side Of The Moon, and Wish You Were Here both featured surround sound mixes, but The Wall (which followed in 2012) didn’t.

Pink Floyd’s Pulse live album is due for a vinyl reissue in May, as is the Relics album.

45 Years Ago: Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon #1
http://bestclassicbands.com/pink-floyd- ... 1-4-20-18/
by Best Classic Bands Staff

One week. That was it. Pink Floyd‘s landmark classic rock album, The Dark Side of the Moon, released on March 9, 1973, hit the top of the U.S. sales chart just six weeks later, on April 21, never to return again. Pretty ironic for one of the best-selling albums ever, with worldwide sales of some 45 million copies. (Estimates put it behind only Michael Jackson’s Thriller and AC/DC’s Back in Black in worldwide sales.)

But first, the chart backstory.
The band had never had a song reach the U.S. pop charts. (1967’s “See Emily Play” reached #6 in the U.K. but barely caused a ripple in the U.S.) Their previous album, 1972’s Obscured by Clouds had sold well enough, topping out at #46 in America, representing their chart peak up until then.

Pink Floyd toured DSOTM‘s material extensively in the U.K. and even previewed it live for the press in February 1972 at London’s Rainbow Theatre before recording sessions at EMI’s famed Abbey Road Studios in the summer of that year and January 1973. The album utilized some of the most cutting-edge recording technology and instruments (like analog synthesizers) of the day.

It debuted on the Record World Album Chart at #48 on March 27 and jumped to #26 the next week. By its third week it was #18 and on April 7 it stood at #14. It leaped to #3 on April 14.

On April 21, 1973, just six weeks after it was released, Dark Side of the Moon topped the Record World (and Billboard) album chart. It was replaced at the top the next week by Elvis Presley’s Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite and never returned to #1.

The album yielded two U.S. singles. “Money” became their first American chart hit, reaching #10 on Record World (#13 on Billboard). “Us and Them,” the follow-up released in February 1974, never reached the Hot 100.

Pink Floyd toured North America the month the album was released, playing such venues as the Montreal Forum and New York’s Radio City Music Hall. They returned to the U.S. for two weeks in June.

Dark Side of the Moon stayed on the Billboard chart – Record World ceased publishing in 1982 – for 741 straight weeks from 1973 to 1988, a streak never likely to be broken.
