It’s been a tumultuous road to Record Store Day 2020 for Pink Floyd fans.
Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year, record retailers across have been forced to delay the April event.
In June, it was announced Record Store Day’s releases would be split across three dates.
Now, a full list of release dates has arrived.
The first official release of Pink Floyd’s 2007 performance of Syd Barrett era single ‘Arnold Layne’ will be available in participating stores August 19.
(The track was recorded at the group’s final concert, an event organized to pay tribute to the band’s fallen creative visionary Syd Barrett who had passed away the previous year.)
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason‘s current project Saucerful of Secrets will also release 2019 live recordings of Pink Floyd singles ‘See Emily Play’ and ‘Vegetable Man’ August 19.
Roger Waters‘ 1990 performance of The Wall live at the Berlin Wall will see a September 26 release.
Other acts including Beatles John Lennon and Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Black Sabbath, and the Grateful Dead will also receive their Record Store Day exclusives.
