PINK FLOYD ‘RELICS’ 1971 COMPILATION ALBUM GETS 180-GRAM VINYL RE-RELEASE 18 MAY 2018
On 18 May 2018, Pink Floyd will re-release on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl their 1971 compilation album ‘RELICS’. Remastered in 2018 by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman.
This re-release comes almost 50 years since the original pressing.
‘RELICS’, Pink Floyd’s first ‘compilation’ album, includes singles, B-sides, tracks from their first three albums ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’, ‘A Saucerful of Secrets’ and ‘More’.
Also, the then-previously unreleased Roger Waters song, Biding My Time, recorded in July 1969 and first released on ‘Relics’ in May 1971. ‘Relics’ was the first album to include Arnold Layne and See Emily Play,
which previously had only been released as singles, and the original studio recording of Careful with That Axe, Eugene, the B-side of Point Me At The Sky in 1968.
Keeping true to the original artwork, the sleeve features the black and white drawings by Nick Mason, carrying the iconic subtitle ‘A Bizarre Collection of Antiques & Curios’. All tracks are the original stereo versions,
which sit alongside the Syd Barrett-era, mono mixed singles Arnold Layne and See Emily Play.
Pink Floyd’s ‘RELICS’ will be available on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl from 18 May 2018.
