Roger Waters - Amused to Death SACD and vinyl reissue promoBack at the start of the year, we brought you the news that Analogue Productions, who were responsible for the superb SACD of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here, will be issuing a double LP and SACD of Roger Waters' 1992 epic Amused to Death, first released on vinyl in 1992 in a very limited double LP edition.

In January, Analogue Productions sent out a mailer about it, and were also in touch with us. They told us that "it will be done in the highest quality possible with a team of Doug Sax and James Guthrie and using the original analog master tapes with vinyl pressed at Quality Record Pressings". One of the things uppermost in most minds is when we might see the releases. "We do not have an exact release date. At this point, six to 12 months from now is a good guess, though we're hoping it will be closer to six months". They have now fixed a new (potentially still provisional) release date of April 22nd, 2014, presumably to give sufficient time for the highest quality to be obtained for this release.

The double LP will be on 200-gram vinyl, and the SACD will be a stereo hybrid (so, will play on non-SACD capable standard CD players). The Q Sound virtual surround sound will be preserved in its 3D glory for these new editions of what we consider one of Roger's best works. As soon as we have any further information on this eagerly anticipated release we will let you know.
