Pink Floyd - Delicate Sound of Thunder Blu-ray, DVD, 2CD, 3LP and deluxe 4-disc box With the release of the 2020 version (Restored. Re-Edited. Remixed.) of Delicate Sound of Thunder just under two weeks away, on November 20th, the band's YouTube and social media channels have posted an unboxing video showing off the various editions.

Those of you fortunate enough to have the Floyd's Later Years box set will already know just how good the 2020 version is. This was a result of going directly to the more than 100 cans of original 35mm negatives, painstakingly restoring and transferring the footage to 4K. It was then completely re-edited by Benny Trickett under the creative direction of Aubrey Powell/Hipgnosis. Similarly, the sound was completely remixed from the original multitrack tapes by longtime Floyd engineer Andy Jackson with David Gilmour, assisted by Damon Iddins. Suffice it to say that in the home setting, the quality is quite incredible and the new edit is great! The visual softness of the original VHS release is long gone, thank goodness, and this is as sharp and detailed as you could ever want, with vibrant colours, really showing off the visual aspect of the presentation. The video below initially has some comparison of the old and the new to show some of the differences, although the Blu-ray version is even starker in the difference in quality.

You'll be able to get hold of this release on Blu-ray, DVD, 2CD, 3-disc 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and as a deluxe 4-disc edition with bonus tracks. All editions feature 24-page photo booklets, with the 4-disc box edition including a 40-page photo booklet, tour poster and postcards. The 3LP 180-gram vinyl set includes 9 songs not included on the 1988 release of the album, while the 2CD includes 8 tracks more than its original release.
