Pink Floyd will release the mono version of their 1967 debut The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn on vinyl LP for this year’s Record Store Day. This is a new mono remaster by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman. The vinyl masters were cut in 2018 from the original analogue mono master tape. The record is pressed on heavyweight vinyl and comes with a black poly-lined inner bag. To differentiate this mono from the stereo, Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis (with Peter Curzon) 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.
Sunrise from east, wind grows from the grassfields. Once in life a human being should focus with all his inner spirit on a familiar land. He should let himself go completely, to a land that he knows and contemplate it from many sides, as much as he's able to. He should stop and be astonished in front of it. Wondering, he should touch it carefully in every season, and take inside every sound. He should think about its creatures, and feel every breath of wind flowing, awaking inside the radiant memory of the noon light, the uncountable colours of the twilight, of the sunrise, and the obscurity of the evening. 'Made of Dawn' is the soundtrack for these words, thanks to the magic that these incredible musicians did with music. Puff Dragon, Kick Bong, Sound From The Ground, Pitch Black and others.
