Isn't this where we came in? Pink Floyd offers entire back catalog on vinyl

pink floyd back catalog getting vinyl reissues
Fans of Pink Floyd aren’t expecting new material anytime soon, as the members of the band have maintained since its release that 2014’s The Endless River was the band’s last. Fortunately, if longtime fans are starting to wear out their records, they’ll soon have a good excuse to replace them.

Pink Floyd has announced that it will reissue its entire back catalog on vinyl beginning this spring, Rolling Stone reports. The albums will be issued through the group’s own Pink Floyd records, with each LP coming on high-quality 180-gram vinyl in order to best preserve the quality of the original recordings. The reissues will be manufactured and distributed by Warner Music in the U.K. and Europe, and by Sony Music’s Columbia imprint for North America and the rest of the world.

The first batch of releases will arrive on June 3, and will consist of the group’s first four albums, beginning with 1967’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. The 1968 release A Saucerful of Secrets, and 1969’s More soundtrack and Ummagumma will round out the lineup. No dates are set for other albums, but the label will release more throughout the year.

These first releases were mastered by frequent Pink Floyd collaborators James Guthrie and Joel Plante, who have also worked with the group’s members separately. Bernie Grundman, who has worked on albums from Prince’s Purple Rain to Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, also worked on the releases.

Since the release of the mostly-instrumental The Endless River, guitarist and singer David Gilmour has said that the group is done. Gilmour released the solo album Rattle That Lock last year and played several Pink Floyd songs on tour supporting the album. Meanwhile, Roger Waters, who hasn’t been with the group since 1985, is set to play Desert Trip, a festival planned by the organizers of Coachella, along with Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Neil Young.
