The ‘Remixed & Updated’ version of Pink Floyd‘s 1987 album A Momentary Lapse of Reason – first included in 2019’s The Later Years box set – is being made available on separately on CD and vinyl and two ‘combo’ box sets offering CD+DVD or CD+blu–ray.
The changes made to the album included returning to some of Richard Wright’s original keyboard takes, and re-recording new drum tracks with Nick Mason. The producers David Gilmour and Bob Ezrin felt that they restored “a better creative balance between the three Pink Floyd members”.
Now available outside of that massive box set, the new edition showcases new and updated artwork with a previously unused image from the original photo shoot featuring the iconic beds on the beach.
Stereo versions are available on CD and 2LP vinyl while the CD+DVD editions go much further with the video discs also providing 5.1 surround mixes, music videos, concert screen films, a documentary and some bonus live tracks. The surround mix on the DVD is 5.1 Dolby Digital (48/16) and DTS (48/16). On blu-ray it’s 5.1 DTS Master Audio (96/24). Both include hi-res stereo.
Both box sets come with a 40-page booklet and an envelope containing six exclusive stickers designed by Peter Curzon from StormStudios.
The Remixed & Updated edition of A Momentary Lapse of Reason will be released on 29 October 2021.
