Pink Floyd’s Delicate Sound of Thunder Gets Deluxe Reissue Treatment

The 1988 live album and concert film includes songs from 'The Wall' and 'Dark Side of the Moon'

Pink Floyd’s 1988 live album and concert film, Delicate Sound Of Thunder, will be reissued on Blu-ray, DVD, two-CD, three-disc vinyl and a deluxe four-disc edition with bonus tracks on Nov 20.

The three-LP 180-gram vinyl set includes nine songs that weren’t included on the 1988 release of the album, while the two-CD release includes eight tracks more than its original release. The songs and footage were captured during Floyd’s A Momentary Lapse of Reason tour, and the setlist included songs from The Dark Side Of The Moon (including “Time” and “Us And Them”), the title track of Wish You Were Here, The Wall’s “Comfortably Numb” and “Run Like Hell.”

The two-CD version features all the songs from A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, including “Learning To Fly.” Other versions include a variety of songs – full tracklistings are below. The sound was completely remixed from the original multitrack tapes by longtime Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson with Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.

All editions feature 24-page photo booklets, with the four-disc box edition including a 40-page photo booklet, tour poster and postcards.

The updated version of the film, directed by Wayne Isham, was sourced from over 100 cans of original 35mm negatives, restored and transferred to 4K and enhanced with 5.1 surround sound.

Delicate Sound of Thunder was the first entirely live album by the band and was recorded over five nights at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island, New York, in August 1988 and mixed at Abbey Road Studios in September 1988.

This lineup of Pink Floyd was without co-founders keyboardist/vocalist Richard Wright and bass player and lyricist Roger Waters, who had left the group following the 1983 album The Final Cut. Wright, however, did perform on the tour that is chronicled here.
