Pink Floyd's Piper returns to the UK album charts Print E-mail

Pink Floyd: The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn - 2018 Record Store Day 180g heavyweight vinyl LP

The release of Pink Floyd's 1967 debut album, The Piper At The Gates of Dawn, on vinyl for Record Store Day 2018 proved predictably popular. With a new mono 2018 remaster by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman, and remastered from the original 1967 mono mix, the release is the latest from Pink Floyd Records. The edition re-entered the UK album charts, going straight in at number 33 (our thanks to Malcolm Walker for tipping us off about this).

The limited-edition release is on premium 12" 180-gram black vinyl, and comes paired with an exclusive poster (540 x 388mm on art paper), as well as a foil blocked outer wallet. This was to differentiate the mono version for buyers; Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis, with Peter Curzon, created this additional packaging in the form of a card envelope which features a psychedelic design, including a gold embossed version of the graphic by Syd Barrett which also features on the reverse of the original mono LP.
 It's a lovely package, and great to see the care and attention it got. On a personal note, I heard a lot of non-Floyd fans in my local record shop all commenting on how great it looked, as we were queued up to make our own RSD purchases.

The package also includes gold and black labels, gold sticker, and a poster featuring the original photograph (taken by the late Colin Prime in Ruskin Park, South London) that inspired Syd’s graphic.


For those who missed out on Record Store Day itself, selected participating retailers still have very limited stock left of this album (and other RSD releases), or alternatively, if you wish to avoid the inflated prices on eBay for this (although these are now normalising to more acceptable levels) it is being offered for sale by most Amazon stores. It's worth shopping around as they don't have consistent pricing for this, so you might find you can save a bit of money going to another 'branch' of Amazon. Here are the direct links: Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy.

Roger Waters in Soundz magazine

Some news for our friends in The Netherlands - this month the Dutch music magazine Soundz (Issue 2 of 2018) has a 5-page article on Roger Waters with an eye-catching front cover.

Whilst it doesn't include a new discussion with Roger, it is a combination of various interviews from the past and introduces the upcoming four shows in Amsterdam in June. We also know there are plenty of you who keenly collect magazines featuring the various past and present Floyd band members, and we wouldn't be surprised if this becomes another addition to your collection.

For more information, visit Soundz.nl, and to purchase the magazine online, go to shop.bcm.nl. Our thanks to Nick Spekkels for the information.

Reminder: Pink Floyd's Piper 180 gram special vinyl for Record Store Day 2018 Print E-mail

Pink Floyd: The Piper At The Gates of Dawn - 180 gram vinyl Record Store Day 2018 limited releaseA hopefully timely reminder for you - to celebrate Record Store Day 2018 (TOMORROW - Saturday 21st April), Pink Floyd are releasing The Piper At The Gates of Dawn on vinyl, with a new mono 2018 remaster by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman. Remastered from the original 1967 mono mix, the release is the latest from Pink Floyd Records, which has recently marked global sales of over 1 million vinyl LPs since its launch in June 2016.

The limited-edition Record Store Day release is delivered on premium 12" 180-gram black vinyl, and comes paired with an exclusive poster (540 x 388mm on art paper), as well as a foil blocked outer wallet. This was to differentiate the mono version for buyers; Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis, with Peter Curzon, created this additional packaging in the form of a card envelope which features a psychedelic design, including a gold embossed version of the graphic by Syd Barrett which also features on the reverse of the original mono LP.


The package also includes gold and black labels, gold sticker, and a poster featuring the original photograph (taken by the late Colin Prime in Ruskin Park, South London) that inspired Syd’s graphic.


Written and performed by Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright and Nick Mason, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn was recorded with producer Norman Smith at Abbey Road Studios, and features songs that remained on the band's live setlist for many years, such as Astronomy Domine and Interstellar Overdrive. The songs on the album remain firm favourites with fans to this day.

The release goes on sale via Record Store Day participating stores (in person, not via mail order) tomorrow, and will only remain available while stocks last - we understand it is limited to 6000 copies worldwide. So, if you are interested in this release, you will need to set your alarm early that day to join the queue at your local store. For more details, including participating stores, visit either www.recordstoreday.com or www.recordstoreday.co.uk. Inevitably, and useful for those who can't make it to a store, the album will also appear tomorrow morning on the various eBay stores (in fact, on checking today there are a number of these on there already, at a mix of sensible and crazy prices).
