Pink Floyd - Relics 180 gram heavyweight vinyl LP

On 18th May (the same date as Pink Floyd's 4LP PULSE live album is re-released), the Floyd's much loved "Relics: A Bizarre Collection of Antiques & Curios" arrives on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl, as part of the Pink Floyd Records reissue programme.

The album is the band's 1971 compilation pulling together singles, B-sides, and early album tracks. The album features the intriguing and complex artwork hand-drawn by Nick Mason, and like the original release, all tracks are the original stereo versions, which sit alongside the mono tracks Arnold Layne and See Emily Play. As with other Pink Floyd Records output, this 2018 release was remastered from the original tapes by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman.

As a reminder, the track listing of Relics is as follows:

  • Side One: Arnold Layne, Interstellar Overdrive, See Emily Play, Remember A Day, Paint Box
  • Side Two: Julia Dream, Careful With That Axe, Eugene, Cirrus Minor, The Nile Song, Biding My Time, Bike

The album was a number of fans' initial introduction to the band, being released on a budget label (MFP - Music For Pleasure) which sold the album in stores such as Woolworths, and we suspect this re-issue, on decent vinyl, will prove popular!
