Pink Floyd Announce Vinyl Reissue for 'Pulse'
Published Mar 22, 2018After taking the time to reissue their studio output on wax over the past few years, Pink Floyd are now set to bring one of their acclaimed live albums back to vinyl.
The band announced today that their 1995 live double-LP Pulse will return to vinyl on May 18 for the first time since its initial release. The album has been out of print on wax since 1995, with copies of the box set commanding well over $300 on resale sites such as Discogs.
The reissue will feature audio remastered from the original tapes by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman. The album itself will arrive on four discs of 180-gram vinyl, all housed in individual inner and outer sleeves.
The box set will also include a 52-page hardback photo book. The box's artwork was recreated by Hipgnosis' Aubrey Powell and Peter Curzon, the latter of whom worked on the original packaging with late Hipgnosis co-founder Storm Thorgerson.
Pulse compiles audio from various Pink Floyd performances from the band's 1994 tour in support of The Division Bell, featuring members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album features the band playing their seminal LP The Dark Side of the Moon in full, in addition to a complete side dedicated to an encore.
