Pink Floyd Animals 2018 Remix deluxe edition with LP, CD, Blu-ray and DVD, with 32 page booklet in gatefold coverIn a new interview with Consequence Of Sound, Nick Mason revealed he kept out of the arguments over the sleeve notes for the upcoming release of the incredible 2018 remix of Pink Floyd's Animals. The remix (including surround versions) is out this Friday on LP, CD, Blu-ray and Super Audio CD (SACD), with a deluxe edition gathering together the first of those three, with a DVD containing the same material as the Blu-ray, all in a well-designed gatefold cover, following on October 7th.

Nick said: "David and Roger had a major disagreement about the liner notes, and like all great world wars no one can quite remember what it was about now and what the problem was. But there was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and eventually some sort of resolution was reached. I managed to stay well out of it." Adding to the delay in the release was Covid and Brexit.

Nick also praised the new cover designs (there's two different ones, with the main, dusk image joined by a darker, night-time shot for the Blu-ray cover) with the return to Battersea: "I think its terrific, and it's a continuation of an idea we've had before, which is sort of updating something that has existed — including the 1971 Relics compilation and last year's reissue of 1987's A Momentary Lapse of Reason".

For those yet to order their copy, we really would urge you to consider this release, as it sounds superb - a really great job has been done by James Guthrie! Full format details are here but we suspect many will go for the deluxe set which has everything other than the SACD. Here are the direct links available to place your orders (which help us with Brain Damage's ongoing running costs, without costing anything further to you!). Amazon purchases before release will take advantage of their pre-order price guarantee, where you will automatically pay the lowest price offered between when you bought the item, and release. With regard to the SACD, this only seems to be available from a couple of retailers.
