Pink Floyd

(hennemusic) Pink Floyd continue to reissue their extensive catalogue on vinyl for the first time in more than two decades with a second round of releases on September 23 featuring three early 1970s albums: "Atom Heart Mother," "Meddle" and "Obscured By Clouds."

The band's fifth studio album, 1970's "Atom Heart Mother", went on to become the group's first UK No.1 record; 1971's "Meddle" was an experimental effort highlighted by the epic 23-minute track "Echoes"; and, 1972's "Obscured By Clouds" was originally recorded as the soundtrack to the French film "La Vallιe" but issued as a stand alone release.

Pink Floyd launched the vinyl reissues in June with the release of the band's first four albums: 1967's "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", 1968's "A Saucerful Of Secrets", the soundtrack from the 1969 film "More", and the 1969 2-LP set "Ummagumma."

"We are proud to continue the long standing relationship in North America and beyond between Columbia Records and Pink Floyd," says Columbia Records Chairman and CEO Rob Stringer. "We are excited to work together with the band on their incredible musical legacy." Read more here.
