The Restored. Re-Edited. Remixed. Delicate Sound of Thunder being released

Those of you fortunate enough to have the Floyd’s Later Years box set will already know just how good the 2020 version (Restored. Re-Edited. Remixed.) of Delicate Sound of Thunder is. This was a result of going directly to the more than 100 cans of original 35mm negatives, painstakingly restoring and transferring the footage to 4K. It was then completely re-edited by Benny Trickett under the creative direction of Aubrey Powell/Hipgnosis. Similarly, the sound was completely remixed from the original multitrack tapes by longtime Floyd engineer Andy Jackson with David Gilmour, assisted by Damon Iddins. Suffice it to say that in the home setting, the quality is quite incredible and the new edit is great! The visual softness of the original VHS release is long gone, thank goodness, and this is as sharp and detailed as you could ever want, with vibrant colours, really showing off the visual aspect of the presentation. Those who HAVEN’T got the box set, get ready for November 20th, 2020, when a stand-alone release of Delicate Sound will be made available, in some very nice sounding editions. You’ll be able to get hold of this on Blu-ray, DVD, 2CD, 3-disc 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and as a deluxe 4-disc edition with bonus tracks. All editions feature 24-page photo booklets, with the 4-disc box edition including a 40-page photo booklet, tour poster and postcards. The 3LP 180-gram vinyl set includes 9 songs not included on the 1988 release of the album, while the 2CD includes 8 tracks more than its original release. It is bound to be a popular release for many, and pre-orders are now open for the various editions.

Two current German music magazines feature Pink Floyd

With thanks to Michael Nickel, we have two bits of news aimed principally at our friends in Germany. In that country’s stores at the moment are two magazines which may well take your interest. The first is Classic Rock Magazine (cover date September 2020), which has a multiple page report on the genesis of Pink Floyd’s 1983 album, The Final Cut – the last with Roger Waters still in the band. “Pink Floyd: The last common litter and THE FINAL CUT” delves deep into the background of the album. Elsewhere in the magazine is a major feature on Genesis, looking at their album, Selling England By The Pound. More details including ordering online through ClassicRock.net (https://classicrock.net/produkt/classic-rock-nr-92-genesis-auf-dem-absoluten-hoehepunkt-mit-selling-england-by-the-pound-ausgabe-09-20-september-2020-inkl-cd/). The other magazine that you might want to pick up is Rolling Stone’s German edition (again with a cover date of September 2020). In an article headed “Pink Floyd: This crazy diamond”, they take a multiple page look at the genesis of a different album – in their case (and hinted to by the title of the article) it is 1975’s Wish You Were Here, which they describe as “a sublime album about the burning of youth – and a hymn to the lost Syd Barrett”. Jimi Hendrix is featured elsewhere in the magazine, and indeed Jimi is the cover star. More details and ordering via RollingStone.de (https://www.rollingstone.de/rolling-stone-im-september-2020-titelthema-jimi-hendrix-2023837/).

NEW MUSIC: First Frontier – Take Cover

Based in South London, First Frontier is an English garage-rock band with a lot of attitude. Technically, the band was conceived in 2019, but it was an unconscious idea in 2016 when guitarist Paul Stafford met drummer Helena Poole – at least, that’s how I like to view it. Relatively newbies when it comes to …

Trailer for new Dune movie includes version of Floyd’s Eclipse

At the time of writing this, more than 23 million people have already viewed the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of Dune, Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic, and interest in the music included in the trailer has skyrocketed. In the 1970s, director Alejandro Jodorowsky never got past plans for a Dune film, and famously approached Pink Floyd about writing the score. With this new version, director Denis Villeneuve decided to give a serious nod to that, and includes Eclipse (from The Dark Side Of The Moon) as the key underscore of the trailer. The legendary Hans Zimmer came up with the new version for the trailer, which involved a hefty cast of musicians and singers. He and his choral contractor Edie Lehmann Boddicker put together a 32-voice Los Angeles ensemble, with 12 performed the lyrics with choral parts by the remaining 20. Lehmann Boddicker said: “He wanted to pay homage to the original, very back-phrased sound, a little spaced-out, so the vocals would not sound urgent. There’s a kind of joy happening in the track, a lot of hopefulness. It’s not despondent, just very peaceful and sounding not of this planet.” Musicians included in the trailer were programmer Steven Doar, Chinese-American cellist Tina Guo, Colombian bassist Juan Garcia-Herreros and English guitarist Guthrie Govan (well known for his work with Steven Wilson). Zimmer told Variety in June: “I can keep a lot of musicians busy – in Australia, in Europe, in England, in America. I’m sort of working on four continents. Time zones are not my friend right now.” Our thanks to those who have got in touch regarding this, including Vaughan Burton. Here’s the trailer for the film, including THAT music:
