Pink Floyd Announce Record Store Day Reissue of 'A Saucerful Of Secrets'

Wednesday, 27 February 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Pink Floyd have announced a re-release of their second album, ‘A Saucerful of Secrets’.

Remastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman from the original 1968 analogue mono mix, it follows the reissue of their debut album ‘The Piper At The Gates of Dawn’ in mono last year. The LP will arrive on Record Store Day - which this year falls on April 13 - on 12" black vinyl.

The original album hit shelves in 1968 and charted at number nine in the UK. Produced by Norman Smith, ‘A Saucerful of Secrets’ featured songs that remained in the band’s live setlist for many years to come, including its title track and Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun, as well as Nick Mason’s rare vocal lead on Corporal Clegg.

Wish You Were Here: Pink Floyd's Finest Hour

Ask a random person on the street to name a Pink Floyd album and it's a safe bet they'll say 'The Dark Side Of The Moon'.  Considering it is one of the biggest selling albums in history, a cast-iron classic and owner of one of the iconic sleeves in rock, that's hardly a surprise. But it isn't the band's creative zenith. That honour belongs to 1975’s 'Wish You Were Here', a record that recently celebrated its 40th birthday and one that flawlessly encapsulates each element that made the legendary group tick.

Alter Bridge - Walk The Sky (Album Review)
Fri 25 Oct 2019
Hammered out in what may or may not come to be known as a wham-bam, thank you ma’am style of recording, Alter Bridge’s sixth album was crafted in a whirlwind five week period that had led to some of its greatest strengths and the odd nagging concern. Deliberately their most out-and-out batch of inspiring anthems, ‘Walk The Sky’ largely typifies why they’re still the reigning kings of emotionally intense, ferociously well executed arena rock.
