Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead are the first two major acts to announce special Record Store Day releases.
The original 1968 mono mix of Pink Floyd’s A Saucerful of Secrets has been remastered for vinyl and will come with a reproduction of the original album sleeve. The band announced the reissue by posting a video for “Let There Be More Light,” the opening track on A Saucerful of Secrets, that was filmed in the London subway in 1968.
Sage and Spirit is a 10-track compilation on vinyl assembled by the Dead’s archivist David Lemieux that has studio versions of eight tracks and a couple of songs from the band’s 1972 European tour. The collection was “inspired by” American Beauty Pale Ale, the beer from Dogfish Head that’s going to be out in April.
Record Store Day is April 13th, and the full official list of releases is expected next week.
