Pink Floyd Best-Of Collection Reissue Due

Share This:

On Sept. 28, Pink Floyd Records will release, for the first time ever on vinyl, A Foot in the Door—The Best of Pink Floyd, a collection of classic Pink Floyd tracks from 1967-1994, chosen by members of the band.

The 2-LP album package comes in a gatefold outer sleeve, with two separate printed inner bags, and is pressed on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl. The tracks have been newly mastered for vinyl by longstanding Pink Floyd associate James Guthrie, with Joel Plante, and with lacquers cut by Bernie Grundman of Grundman Mastering in Los Angele. The original sleeve design has been amended by Pink Floyd Creative Director Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis and Peter Curzon, to include alternate versions of the photographs used in the original CD version.

The 2-LP version features at least one difference from the CD version. “Time” is slightly longer, with the ringing alarm clocks at the start of the track reinstated.

The album collects music from throughout Pink Floyd’s career, beginning in 1967 with “See Emily Play,” which featured original singer-guitarist Syd Barrett. The latest track is 1994’s “High Hopes,” from the album The Division Bell. Of course, tracks from the landmark albums The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall are also featured.
