Pink Floyd - Rerelease of Albums

Sept. 26 2011

EMI has decided to release new remastered versions of the Pink Floyd Albums.

Pink Floyd | The Official Site

This will be great news for a lot of people - especially for age challenged over the hill types like me.

The release of these recordings does pose several serious problems for me tho. In order to properly duplicate my original listening experience will require me to acquire some sort of half azzed turntable - say a Dual 1229 with a Shure IV cartridge, plugged into a Sansui quad amp playing out to some JBL L100's. Then there are the bean bag chairs and lava lamps - incense burners - bell bottom paints etc. that will need to be located and purchased.

Damn - I just remembered - I'll need to get a reel to reel tape recorder to back up the vinyl to, plus an 8 track recorder so I can play tunes in the car. The reel to reel tape was always nice because I didn't need to get up to often to put on another platter. Sometimes getting up could be a challenge, let alone playing with a tone arm and risking that god awful noise they would make when the stylus skidded across the record.

OH dear me - what to do - what to do????? :D:D:D

What want the old man though, than you and me?

Don't forget the bong.

I just hope they do a better job than the last ones. The last remaster of Dark Side of the Moon on CD was dropped in to an evening of (otherwise excellent sounding) music at a friend's house the other week and it sounded terrible.

Adding bong to shopping list Sy. I don't have a clue where to get something to burn up in it - but 5 minutes at the local collage library is probably all the time I would need to do a little research. :D:D:D

Of course - I must add some psychedelic posters to the walls (that will thrill SWMBO to no end). AND a WATERBED - I gotta go get me a WATERBED DUDE!!!!

To true!!! The same can be said of many of the remastered "classics". All the bongs in the world won't improve that. Listening to them on an 8 track and some old JBL's should cover most of that up tho..... :rofl::rofl::rofl:

I do not forget anything.
Altough it would be nice if this would be the case, and I only could I forget, that I want.

Nashville is Music City, right?

I was at a show last year in a secret, outdoor location- no electricity or lights, just several great musicians playing for the crowd. I was by 30 years the oldest person there. The kids started passing around pipes and I could hear a few of them, pointing at me, saying, "Watch out, don't let Gramps see you!" Damn, Pete Townsend was right.

Sadly, it doesn't work that way. There are some things that never stop hurting, and only time can change the sharp pain to an ache.

For some aches, taking their pipes works....

ctc, that looks yummy.
