September 8 [16:00 EDT] — While Pink Floyd’s management says that fans shouldn’t expect to see Roger Waters re-entering the fold anytime soon, they will soon be able to relive the band’s Waters-inspired heyday.
Columbia Records is planning to remaster, repackage, and reissue six of the band’s classic works on September 23.
The band’s 1975 work “Wish You Were Here,” 1977’s “Animals,” the 1979 opus “The Wall,” 1981’s “A Collection Of Great Dance Songs,” 1983’s “The Final Cut” (Waters’ last album with the band), and 1987’s “A Momentary Lapse Of Reason” will all get a digital make over, and will be packaged with new photos and artwork.
The impending arrival of the re-tooled Floyd albums may have proved to be the springboard for rumors that a Roger Waters/Pink Floyd reunion was on the way. However, that speculation was shot down by Pink Floyd’s management, who said no such reunion is in the works.
