Pink Floyd To Release Atom Heart Mother Meddle, And Obscured By Clouds On Vinyl LP On September 26, 2016
Pink Floyd will continue the reintroduction of its catalogue on vinyl with the release of Atom Heart Mother, Meddle, and Obscured by Clouds on September 26, 2016. Each record has been remastered from the original analogue master tapes. “The Wall” and “The Division Bell” will also be back in stock on vinyl starting August 26, 2016.
Pink Floyd followed its 60s albums with their fifth studio album, Atom Heart Mother, in 1970. Featuring the classic lineup of Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright, and Nick Mason, the LP went on to become the band’s first UK #1 record.
During a short break from touring Atom Heart Mother in 1971, Pink Floyd released the experimental album Meddle. The LP saw the band move musical direction away from their original psychedelic sound, especially highlighted by the 23-minute track “Echoes” which occupied the entire b-side of the record.
Pink Floyd’s seventh album, Obscured by Clouds, was originally recorded as the soundtrack to the French film “La Vallee” but was released as a standalone album in 1972.
