Pink Floyd Records

Pink Floyd will continue its ongoing catalog reissue campaign next month with the release of 180-gram vinyl versions of the band’s 1981 compilation A Collection of Great Dance Songs and the 1988 live album Delicate Sound of Thunder.

Both albums, which will hit stores on November 17, were remastered from the original analog studio tapes. This will mark the first time in more than 20 years that either release will be available on vinyl.

A Collection of Great Dance Songs features alternate versions of the classic Pink Floyd tunes “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” “Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)” and “Money,” as well as the original studio versions of “Wish You Were Here,” “One of These Days” and “Sheep” and two other songs. The album peaked at #31 on the Billboard 200, and has sold more than 2 million copies in the U.S.

Delicate Sound of Thunder features performances recorded during a five-night stand Pink Floyd played in August 1988 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, as part of the band’s tour in support of the 1987 studio effort A Momentary Lapse of Reason. Issued as a two-disc set, the album reached #11 on the Billboard 200 and has sold over 3 million copies in the States.
