Record Collector, October 2014The always absorbing UK magazine Record Collector has an unmissable article in the new edition (issue 432, cover date October 2014), which arrived in UK stores yesterday, September 12th, sporting an eye-catching promo shot of Pink Floyd from 1967.

Highlight of the magazine is a dual purpose, five-page feature on the Floyd. The first part takes a detailed look at some of the more notable global rarities, with updated valuations (the last set of valuations was almost six years ago) by Joe Geesin (yes, son of Ron, most notable for Floyd fans for Atom Heart Mother) with help from our friend, BD contributor Herve Denoyelle. Some incredibly rare examples are listed, where just one or two are known to exist, along with more regular releases which are nevertheless boasting a hefty value these days. Who knows what pricey gem you might have lurking in your own collections, that you are unaware of? The discography of Pink Floyd's global rarities makes for fascinating reading, particularly for those of us who have been collecting various things for many years now.

This is coupled with a look at what is known so far - and what has been rumoured - about the band's upcoming studio album The Endless River, which of course is based on the recordings done around the time of 1994's The Division Bell. The writer takes the little which has been officially revealed, and picks away at comments made on various Facebook pages by those involved to try to understand what we are likely to get when TER eventually is released (and as yet, there is NO official release date, despite the rumours and suggestions of dates such as October 27th and November 10th, both possible candidates based on normal scheduling of albums). The writer also takes a look at those known to be working on the recordings, particularly The Orb's Youth, bringing in the collaboration between them and David Gilmour on 2010's Metallic Spheres.

Elsewhere in the magazine are features on modern female metal, Kate Bush, Foreigner, British Soul, and a fascinating look at the huge variety of punk memorabilia and collectables. The magazine should be appearing now in all good UK stores, and will be available worldwide in selected outlets shortly as an import. It is also available to purchase online here.
