Pink Floyd Announce Reissues of Two ’80s Albums on Vinyl

Pink Floyd have announced reissues of two albums from the ‘80s that will be available on vinyl for the first time in more than two decades.

A Collection of Great Dance Songs and Delicate Sound of Thunder mark the continuation of Pink Floyd Records’ re-release program, which already includes the band’s remastered studio catalog on 180g vinyl. The new sets will be available on Nov. 17.

A Collection of Great Dance Songs arrived in 1981 and included some alternate mixes along with classic tracks from the ban’d past, including “Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2),” “Money,” “Comfortably Numb,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Run Like Hell” and “Shine on You Crazy Diamond.”

Delicate Sound of Thunder, which was released in 1988, was recorded live in New York, and went on to become the first album played in space when Soviet astronauts took a copy aboard the Soyuz TM-7 mission to the Mir space station that same year. Floyd members David Gilmour and Nick Mason attended the TM-7 launch in France and recorded audio there for possible future use.

You can see the track listings for both albums below.

Meanwhile, Gilmour’s new concert DVD and CD, Live at Pompeii, has debuted two years after the release of his most recent solo album, Rattle That Lock. The movie documents the guitarist’s return to the ancient Roman city 45 years after Pink Floyd shot a movie there. “It’s an extraordinary place to be, because it’s preserved exactly as it was,” he said of the amphitheater, which last hosted an audience in 79AD. “If you visit any other antiquity-type sites throughout the world, they’re very damaged with what’s gone on over the centuries since their were abandoned. This one was just sealed, so you’re looking at rock surfaces, and the carving of letters and names in the stones looks like it was done yesterday.”
