Delicate Sound of Thunder has been restored, re-edited and remixed and the result looks and sounds absolutely stunning. It will be released on Friday 20th November 2020 and is available to order at the links below.
Treat yourself to a copy now (makes a great Pink Floyd Christmas present) and enjoy.
It is released in multiple formats including Blu-ray and DVD, with audio-only versions on 2-CD or 3-LP, plus a Deluxe 4-disc version including 2-CDs plus Blu-ray and DVD, each of which contain five bonus tracks.
The redone concert film was released in the Pink Floyd Later Years massive boxset, chronicling the band after Roger Waters’ departure in great detail. Stunning boxset, but perhaps out of reach for many fans given its price. Therefore this release of the Delicate Sound of Thunder concert recording will be most welcomed by fans as the standalone product is much more affordable than the box set.
The original 35mm film was expertly captured and the latest technologies applied to get the deepest colours, highest contrasts and the result looks great. The audio is also edited and sounds much better than the original. Here is a comparison for example…
Roger Waters’ Us + Them UK Chart position has come in at quite a surprising position this week as it entered the UK charts.
The recording was made available in visual formats including bluray, DVD and 4k streaming. The audio was also made available as MP3, music streaming, vinyl and CD. Grab a copy.
The UK album charts has Us+Them in a number 9 in its debut week. You may recall that the drummer’s album came in at number five a couple of weeks ago. It is anyone’s guess as to what Roger will think about that!
Personally, I bought the bluray as I wanted to watch the concert as it was a visually stunning as it was musically. Really fantastic show, I was lucky enough to see it in Liverpool. I didn’t buy the CD or vinyl. Perhaps many others did this so, as far as I know, that wouldn’t therefore be counted in the UK Album charts.
Amazon had it as number 1 best selling music bluray of crouse which validates the theory that more people want to see it rather than hear it.
What are your thoughts on the chart positioning this week? Or the recording itself? Leave a comment.
