PETER WHITEHEAD

We are sad to note the death of independent film maker Peter Whitehead, who documented the counterculture of the 1960s, as this obituary discusses. Amongst many things, Peter shot the film Tonite Let's All Make Love In London, featuring Pink Floyd; expanded footage shot of the band was later released as Pink Floyd – London 1966-67.

THE PINK FLOYD EXHIBITION: THEIR MORTAL REMAINS – SPAIN BECOMES THE FOURTH COUNTRY TO HOST THIS AMAZING INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE

Spain has been confirmed as the fourth country to host The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, the critically acclaimed major retrospective of Pink Floyd, their music and the impact the band had on art and culture.

The exhibition will open on Friday 10th May 2019 at the internationally recognised IFEMA – the Trade Fair Institution of Spain. IFEMA's Espacio 5.1 is the perfect venue for the immersive experiential journey through Pink Floyd's world, from high-tech audio visual events, objects, and surreal landscapes, to culture explosions that evolve throughout the exhibition.

Tickets for the exhibition are on sale now via www.stubhub.es and www.pinkfloydexhibition.es.

'THE DIVISION BELL' 25TH ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION BLUE VINYL

A Saucerful Of Secrets Mono RemasterPink Floyd Records is releasing a 25th anniversary edition of The Division Bell, the band's 1994 multi-million selling album that included the Grammy Award-winning track Marooned (Best Rock Instrumental Performance). Set for release on Friday 7th June, this 25th anniversary edition will be available on translucent blue vinyl, echoing the original limited blue vinyl release in 1994.

The Division Bell sleeve artwork of two huge metal heads in profile talking to each other (and in turn, creating a third forward-facing head) was provided by long-time Floyd collaborator Storm Thorgerson. Two three-metre tall metal head sculptures (by John Robertson), weighing 1500 kilogrammes, were placed in a field in Cambridgeshire and photographed across a two-week period in all weather conditions. Storm said: "It was intended that the viewer should not see both at the same time. One saw the single face, or the two profiles which meant that they were then communicating with the image". This relates directly to the album's core themes of communication, talking through problems and making choices.

The album was remastered for the release in 2014 by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab from the original analogue tapes. Bob Ezrin and David Gilmour produced the original album, with orchestral arrangements by the late Michael Kamen. As with the 2014 vinyl reissue, it's a 2-LP set containing all full-length versions of the tracks, as opposed to the original 1994 LP, which featured some edited tracks in order to fit the album on one LP.

You can purchase the 25th anniversary edition of The Division Bell here.

'A SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS' MONO REMASTER

A Saucerful Of Secrets Mono RemasterTo celebrate Record Store Day 2019 (Saturday 13th April), Pink Floyd will re-release the band's second album A Saucerful of Secrets on vinyl. Remastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman from the original 1968 analogue mono mix, the release is the latest from Pink Floyd Records, which has supported Record Store Day since the label's launch in June 2016.

The limited-edition Record Store Day release is delivered on premium 12" 180-gram black vinyl, with a black poly-lined inner sleeve, and a faithful reproduction of the original sleeve, including the 'Columbia' logo, under which imprint (via EMI) the early Pink Floyd released in the UK. (The 'Columbia' logo has been used by kind permission of owners Sony Music Entertainment.)

The album's cover artwork was the first ever sleeve design for creators Aubrey Powell and Storm Thorgerson of the Hipgnosis design team, and was to lead to a groundbreaking career for them in the visual arts, including of course many more iconic Pink Floyd album sleeves, amongst them The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here.

A Saucerful of Secrets in Mono follows the successful release of Pink Floyd's debut album The Piper At The Gates of Dawn in Mono in 2018, and is released via Record Store Day participating stores on Saturday 13th April 2019.

Christie's auctioneers will be hosting an auction of some of the highlights of David Gilmour's personal guitar collection on Thursday 20th June 2019 in New York. Focussing on a selection of David's guitars, including Fenders, Gibsons and Martins, amongst others, the auction will be led by David's historic 'Black Strat', his 1969 black Fender Stratocaster, with which he is closely associated. The sale will be the largest and most comprehensive collection of guitars to be offered at auction, with all sale proceeds benefitting charitable causes.

A global tour of the collection will launch in London at Christie's, King Street, from March 27-31, 2019, where the full collection will be on display, followed by highlights in Los Angeles May 7-11, and then the New York sale preview ahead of the auction from June 14-19. During the exhibitions, sound experience will be provided by Sennheiser.

David said: "These guitars have been very good to me and many of them have given me pieces of music over the years. They have paid for themselves many times over, but it's now time that they moved on. Guitars were made to be played and it is my wish that wherever they end up, they continue to give their owners the gift of music. By auctioning these guitars I hope that I can give some help where it is really needed and through my charitable foundation do some good in this world. It will be a wrench to see them go and perhaps one day I'll have to track one or two of them down and buy them back!"

DAVID GILMOUR PERFORMS WITH THE PRETTY THINGS AND VAN MORRISON

David Gilmour performs with The Pretty Things and Van Morrison

 

David Gilmour fulfilled his promise last night to former Harvest stable mates The Pretty Things, joining them onstage at their last-ever performance. The Indigo space at the O2 Arena was the venue for a rapturously received, sold out show, which saw the Dartford, Kent, band officially bow out after 55 years of live performing. Formed by ex-Rolling Stone Dick Taylor and singer Phil May, the band went through several musical incarnations in their career, all represented across a 3-part set spanning three hours.

The central section included a large portion of the band's rock opera S. F. Sorrow, certainly one of the first, which was released on EMI's Harvest imprint in December 1968, produced by Norman Smith. At last night's show, David played on several tracks from the album, including She Says Good Morning, Baron Saturday, I See You, and Old Man Going, as well as adding exhilarating solos to Cries From The Midnight Circus, from the subsequent Parachute album.

The farewell show also featured guest appearances from Van Morrison, who joined David alongside The Pretty Things on one of the encores, a high energy rendition of Bo Diddley's Roadrunner, originally included on the Pretty Things' 1965 debut album, helping to bring things full circle. For those who were there it was a very exciting night, the contributions of the special guests helping to celebrate one of the UK's original 1960's musical pioneers.

SOUL MUSIC: SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND

BBC Radio 4's Soul Music programme on Wednesday 26th December (9.00am, repeated at 9.30pm; then available, as a podcast, on the BBC Sounds app.) features Shine On You Crazy Diamond discussed by voices including David Gilmour.

Written about Syd Barrett, their former band member, it's both a tribute, and a call for him to "shine on" despite suffering serious mental health issues. David Gilmour recalls the legendary day that Syd Barrett unexpectedly appeared in the studio where they were recording Wish You Were Here, the album bookended by Shine On. Nobody recognised Syd at first; once handsome and slender, he'd gained weight and shaved his head and eyebrows.

Another contributor to the programme, Anna Gascoigne, talks about the pain of losing her son, Jay. He was a gentle boy, a talented musician, who eventually succumbed to the multiple mental health problems he had battled for years. Shine On You Crazy Diamond, for Anna, speaks directly to her of Jay; he loved Pink Floyd and Shine On was played at his memorial service. Anna, herself, was driven to the brink of suicide by her son's death. It was the support of her family – including her brother, Paul Gascoigne – that helped her to carry on.

Ed Steelefox, a DJ based in Worcester, describes a New Year's Eve house-party of a few years ago: as the guests gradually fell asleep he chose to slip out the door leaving a non-stop playlist of different, live, versions of 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' to penetrate their dreams.

And Professor Allan Moore, a regular Soul Music contributor, takes to the grand piano to play and talk about what it is in the track that is so directly reminiscent of Syd Barrett.

NICK MASON'S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS ANNOUNCES FIRST-EVER NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets North American TourNick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets have announced their first-ever North American tour in 2019 with stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, and New York. Collecting rave reviews as they introduced their unique live show of early Pink Floyd to sold-out UK and European audiences in 2018, the 28-date tour kicks off March 12, 2019 in Vancouver, British Columbia, at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and concludes April 22, 2019 in Washington, D.C. at DAR Constitution Hall.

This tour marks Pink Floyd co-founder and drummer Nick Mason's first performances in North America since Pink Floyd's July 18, 1994 concert at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, as part of the Division Bell Tour.

"With the help of some like-minded friends, I have embarked on a voyage of discovery of the music that was the launch pad of Pink Floyd and my working life," says Mason. "It seems too early to retire, and I missed the interaction with other musicians."

Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets is Nick Mason, Spandau Ballet guitarist Gary Kemp, longtime Pink Floyd touring bassist Guy Pratt, guitarist Lee Harris, and keyboardist Dom Beken. This is an opportunity to experience Pink Floyd's celebrated and significant early body of work played live, including songs from albums The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets.

A FOOT IN THE DOOR – THE BEST OF PINK FLOYD

A Foot In The Door – The Best Of Pink FloydOn Friday 28th September 2018, Pink Floyd Records will release, for the first time on vinyl, A Foot In The Door – The Best Of Pink Floyd, a collection of classic Pink Floyd tracks, chosen by members of the band.

Originally released in 2011 on CD only, the artwork for this compilation is the last Pink Floyd album work of long-term Floyd designer, the late Storm Thorgerson. This is the perfect Pink Floyd album for both devoted fans and those discovering their music for the very first time.

The career-spanning compilation features some of the best-known album tracks from 1967 – 1994, including the band's first UK Top 10 single See Emily Play, and the iconic Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, and High Hopes.

The tracks have been newly mastered for vinyl by longstanding Pink Floyd associate James Guthrie, with Joel Plante, and with lacquers cut by Bernie Grundman of Grundman Mastering in Los Angeles, California. The 2-LP version features the reinstated version of Time, with the ringing alarm clocks at the start of the track restored, after being omitted on the CD release.

The original sleeve design, has been amended by Pink Floyd Creative Director Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis and Peter Curzon, to include alternate versions of the photographs used in the original CD version.

The album package comes in a gatefold outer sleeve, with two separate printed inner bags, and is pressed on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl.

NICK MASON BOX SETS

Nick Mason's Unattended LuggageReleased on August 31st 2018 is Nick Mason's Unattended Luggage, a three-album CD or vinyl box set of his albums Nick Mason's Fictitious Sports, Profiles and White of the Eye. These limited edition box sets will be available shortly before his acclaimed new band Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets begin their European tour at Cirkus in Stockholm on September 2nd.

Nick said, "These recordings hold a very special place for me in my musical life. Fictitious Sports developed initially from working with Mike Mantler, Carla Bley and Robert Wyatt on a couple of their projects, and benefited enormously from a whole crew of great musicians that I was introduced to by them at Grog Kill Studios in Woodstock.

"Profiles and White of the Eye were an extension of working with Rick Fenn on some advertising and short documentary film soundtracks, which then developed into something more.

"Listening back after 30-odd years, I'm delighted they are getting the reissue treatment. I'm rather hoping that sales will be sufficient to damage the market in the original rare vinyl versions!"

The three individual albums will all be available as a download and through streaming platforms. The box sets can be ordered here.

The 4-LP set includes four different inner sleeves, each inside individual outer sleeves, plus a 52-page hardback photo book, all encased in a thick card slipcase. One of These Days was included in the LP and cassette version of the album as an additional track.

It also includes the then-previously unreleased Roger Waters song, Biding My Time, recorded in July 1969 and first released on Relics in May 1971.

To differentiate the mono version for buyers, Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis, with Peter Curzon, has created some additional packaging in the form of a card envelope which features a psychedelic design, including a gold embossed version of the graphic by Syd Barrett which also features on the reverse of the original mono LP. The package also includes gold and black labels, a gold sticker, and a poster featuring the original photograph (taken by the late Colin Prime in Ruskin Park, South London) that inspired Syd's graphic.

The actual album sleeve is, as usual, a close recreation of the original sleeve design, but with all details listing its 'mono' status.

CLAUDIA FONTAINE

Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Claudia Fontaine who died this week. As well as working with artists including Dusty Springfield and Annie Lennox, Claudia was a much-loved backing vocalist on The Division Bell Tour as well as on David's Meltdown performances at the Royal Festival Hall in 2001 and 2002.

She will always be in our memories.

The reissues of Pink Floyd recordings on vinyl continue on Friday 17th November, when Pink Floyd Records will reissue A Collection Of Great Dance Songs and Delicate Sound Of Thunder on vinyl, the first time they have been available on the format in over twenty years.

Only a select few fans were able to witness David Gilmour's ground-breaking return to the Pompeii amphitheatre for a brace of incredible performances in July 2016, but from 29th September every fan will be able to experience them, with the release of the recording of those concerts on CD, Blu-Ray, DVD, LP, and download.

Released via Sony Music, Live At Pompeii will be available on 2-CD, Blu-ray, 2-DVD, 4-LP, deluxe Blu-ray box, and download. For more information, please click here.

The Pompeii concerts marked a return by David Gilmour to the venue 45 years after Pink Floyd filmed in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, his two spectacular shows forming part of the year-long tour in support of the No. 1 album Rattle That Lock. David's performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600-strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.

The stellar performances are complemented by an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a trademark huge circular screen, but paramount is the music; the show includes songs from throughout David's career, solo and with Pink Floyd, including One Of These Days, the only song that was also performed by the band there in 1971, and six songs from Rattle That Lock, as well as two from 2006's On An Island.

The release of Live At Pompeii will be preceded by a worldwide cinema screening of around 107 minutes – click here for more details.

DAVID GILMOUR LIVE AT POMPEII FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY

David Gilmour Live At Pompeii Poster 2017On July 7th & 8th 2016, David Gilmour performed two spectacular shows at the legendary Pompeii Amphitheatre in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, 45 years after he first played there for Adrian Maben's classic film Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii.

The concerts were the first-ever rock performances played to an audience in the ancient Roman amphitheatre, which was built in 90 BC and entombed in ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79. David Gilmour is the only performer to play to an audience in the arena since the time of the gladiators, almost 2,000 years ago.

Speaking about the Pompeii shows David commented, 'It's a magical place and coming back and seeing the stage and the arena was quite overwhelming. It's a place of ghosts...'.

For one night only on September 13th 2017, over 2000 cinemas worldwide will be showing David Gilmour Live At Pompeii.

The concert performance film, David Gilmour Live At Pompeii, will be distributed to cinemas worldwide by Trafalgar Releasing on Wednesday 13th September and will include highlights from both shows, filmed in 4K by director Gavin Elder, and will be presented in Dolby Atmos sound.

The show includes songs from throughout David's career including the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums Rattle That Lock and On An Island. Also included are other solo and Pink Floyd classics such as Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb, and One Of These Days, the only song that was also performed by the band in 1971. Both concerts also saw very special performances of The Great Gig In The Sky from The Dark Side Of The Moon, which David rarely plays as a solo artist.

The concert is a spectacular audio-visual experience, featuring the famous huge circular cyclorama screen as well as lasers, pyrotechnics and stellar performances from an all-star band.

David Gilmour Live At Pompeii shows an artist at a creative peak, in a unique setting, on a very special occasion and is not to be missed on the big screen.

ROGER AND NICK V&A EXHIBITION PRESS CONFERENCE

Pink Floyd Exhibition Press ConferenceRoger Waters and Nick Mason made a rare public appearance together today at London's May Fair Hotel at a media briefing and Q&A session for The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, due to open in May at London's V&A museum. Hosted by DJ Matt Everitt, the event started with a short description of the exhibition by co-curator Victoria Broackes, outlining the attention to detail that has gone into every aspect.

This was followed by a Question & Answer session with Matt and Pink Floyd's Creative Director Aubrey 'Po' Powell of Hipgnosis, alongside Ray Winkler, CEO of the exhibition's designers Stufish. Po spoke evocatively and warmly of his personal history with the members of Pink Floyd, and with Syd Barrett in particular, providing a creative and cultural overview of the ups, downs and importance of Pink Floyd's career, while Ray Winkler touched on the design and architectural elements of Pink Floyd's live staging.

Daniel Sennheiser, CEO of audio electronics company Sennheiser, then talked about the company's involvement with Pink Floyd from their earliest years, and their shared commitment to audio excellence, which will manifest itself in 360-degree audio mixes played in a portion of the exhibition, as well as the headphone technology used to provide aural accompaniment to the exhibits.

Finally, Roger and Nick took to the stage to answer questions from Matt Everitt and some media in the audience. With thoughtful, and occasionally hilarious, answers, they covered topics such as playing specific concerts and Roger's forthcoming album, to be entitled 'Is This The Life We Really Want?', while Nick admitted that he was probably the member of Pink Floyd most likely to have kept photos and memorabilia. Both of them professed their admiration for the V&A curation team in unearthing interesting and meaningful objects, whether historic personal letters from the band or the actual cane used to beat Roger at Cambridgeshire High School For Boys, accompanied by the school's 'Punishment Book' listing the beatings.

They both looked forward to viewing the exhibition in person, including passing through the entrance, a special reconstruction of the band's Bedford CA van, into a world of Pink Floyd history, starting with psychedelia and progressing to the ambitious stagings of the later years.

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, presented by the V&A and Michael Cohl's Iconic Entertainment Studios, runs from the 13th May till the 1st October 2017.

Tickets are on sale now: in person at the V&A; online at www.vam.ac.uk/pink-floyd or by calling (in the UK) 0800 912 6961 (booking fee applies); or from ticketing partners Ticketmaster, LOVETheatre, See Tickets, and Encore.
