Pink Floyd's Meddle on Audiophile-Grade Vinyl: Epic, Textured 1971 Masterwork Includes "Echoes," Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Bernie Grundman, James Guthrie, and Joel Plante
Epic, explorative, expressive: Pink Floyd's ambitiously atmospheric Meddle lingers as an unforgettable masterpiece drenched in resplendent textures and pointillistic details. Remastered from the original analog master tapes by Bernie Grundman, James Guthrie, and Joel Plante, the 1971 album has never sounded better in any format. While it often sits in the shadows of The Dark Side of the Moon, a record that musically serves as its younger brother, the moody, brooding, often-dark work finds the band moving away from its original psychedelic sound and includes two timeless, largely instrumental pieces that showcase lead guitarist David Gilmour in all his vertiginous, keening glory: "Echoes," which takes up the whole of Side One, and the gorgeous "One of These Days.".
