Didja-hear? Having been originally released, forty years ago, in 1967, Pink Floyd’s Piper At The Gates of Dawn is being reissued. Of course the powers that be (EMI) decided to announce this three weeks after I had replaced my scratched-to-hell mid ’90s copy of the bands early masterpiece (and Syd Barretts crowning achievement).

No matter, as, according to pitchfork media, the classic psychedelic LP is getting a deluxe three disc reissue treatment outfitted with both stereo and mono versions of the album with a third disc containing late sixties Piper era singles and other collected rarities. Doooood.

  1. A Syd-less clip for a post about Piper? Outrage!

  2. god damn it… I just bought a new copy too – like 3 months ago…

    That being said – Candy and a Currant bun / Apples & Oranges / See Emily Play / Arnold Layne / everything else that wasn’t on that original record will be very nice to see release again…

    I wonder if his 2 or 3 saucerful of secrets songs that were ne’er released (including vegetable man) will be included.

  3. what syd did, yeah man, i thought the interview clip with homeboy was too good not to post.

  4. The only Floyd record I can still get into, a classic that is long overdue for the special treatment.

  5. There are clips of Pink Floyd performing that song with Syd Barrett (rather than David Gilmour as filmed above) on youtube – worth checking out!

  6. i agree with will. this record is the only listenable floyd for me.

  7. Any chance those The Zabriskie Point Sessions could be posted again? I’d love to hear them.

  8. The zabriskie point stuff was radicool…

    But Syd’s videos are awesome – there’s some GREAT stuff on youtube

  9. FUCK
