Roger Waters - Is This The Life We Really Want? new album 2017 (photo: Alex Fishlock)WELCOME TO BRAIN DAMAGE, YOUR PINK FLOYD, DAVID GILMOUR AND ROGER WATERS NEWS RESOURCE!

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains at London's V&A is now closed, but the V&A are now talking about plans to tour it. More on that as it is announced.

Roger Waters is concluding a run of over 60 dates in North America... He has also announced around the same number of dates in Australia, New Zealand and Europe in 2018. The spectacular tour coincides with the new album from Roger Waters: Is This The Life We Really Want?

Finally, out now for those who missed the concerts last year (or indeed, cannot wait to relive them!) are the recordings of David Gilmour Live at Pompeii on CD, LP, DVD, Blu-ray. Some other goodies form part of the package (especially the boxset) so worth checking out the details!

Pink Floyd's Delicate Sound and Great Dance Songs coming on 180g vinyl

Pink Floyd - Delicate Sound of Thunder 180g heavyweight vinyl
Pink Floyd - A Collection of Great Dance Songs 180g heavyweight vinyl

On 17th November 2017, Pink Floyd Records will reissue A Collection Of Great Dance Songs and Delicate Sound Of Thunder on vinyl, the first time they have been available on this format for well over twenty years. These are the band's first 'best of' and live albums to be remastered on vinyl.

Over the past two years, Pink Floyd Records has released the entire studio collection as stereo remastered versions on heavyweight 180g vinyl. All are mastered from the original analogue studio tapes with album artwork faithfully reproduced. The same applies to these best of and live albums.

Originally released in 1981, A Collection Of Great Dance Songs was certified Double Platinum by the RIAA in 2001. The compilation album contains alternative mixes and versions of the band's classics including Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2) and Money.

Recorded live over five nights in August 1988 at the Nassau Coliseum, Long Island, NY, Delicate Sound Of Thunder became infamous for being the first rock album to be played in outer space.

With many of you out there committed vinyl enthusiasts, we're sure that these editions will be very popular. Thus, below we list dedicated ordering links for both albums on vinyl - using these will give a small but vital contribution to the running costs of Brain Damage, without costing you a penny/cent extra, and we really appreciate it!

A COLLECTION OF GREAT DANCE SONGS 180g vinyl:  Amazon.com  Amazon UK  Canada  Germany  France  Italy  Spain 
DELICATE SOUND OF THUNDER 180g 2LP vinyl:  Amazon.com  Amazon UK  Canada  Germany  France  Italy  Spain 

NOTE: Some of the stores above are yet to list the releases as available to buy but the pages are there for when they do. If your chosen store doesn't have it yet, please keep trying, or consider an alternate store - Amazon ship vinyl worldwide.

Here's the newly announced dates:

Dedicated pages for each of the above, newly announced shows on the tour are now live, joining the show pages already shown in the 2018 Roger Waters tour area.
