Pink Floyd Records continues the reintroduction of the Pink Floyd catalog on vinyl with the release of three early ’70s gems — Atom Heart Mother (1970), Meddle (1971), and Obscured by Clouds (1972) — on September 23, 2016. Each record has been remastered from the original analog master tapes.
Featuring the classic lineup of Roger Waters (bass/vocals), David Gilmour (guitar/vocals), Richard Wright (keyboards/vocals), and Nick Mason (drums), Atom Heart Mother, Pink Floyd’s fifth studio album, went on to become the band’s first UK #1 record.
During a short break from touring Atom Heart Mother in 1971, Pink Floyd released the experimental album Meddle, which saw the band begin to move away from their original deeply psychedelic sound, as evidenced by the 23-minute epic track “Echoes,” which occupied the album’s entire B-side.
Pink Floyd’s seventh album, Obscured by Clouds, was originally recorded as the soundtrack to the French film La Vallée (directed by Barbet Schroeder), but was released as a standalone album in 1972.
As we reported here on HRAC back on May 6, remastered LPs for The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967), A Saucerful of Secrets (1968), the soundtrack from the film More (1969), and the two-LP set Ummagumma (1969) were made available through Pink Floyd Records on June 3.
In other Floyd LP news, The Wall (1979) and The Division Bell (1994) will also be back in stock on vinyl, starting on August 26.
And if that isn’t enough Floyd for your ears to enjoy, go here to see our in-depth report on the band’s upcoming The Early Years 1965-1972 box set, which is slated for release on November 11.
