Warner Music for Europe and Sony Music for outside Europe have announced that a “restored and re-edited” edition of Pink Floyd‘s Pulse concert film will be released for the first time on Blu-ray on February 18, 2022.
The concert film, directed by David Mallet, will be available as 2x Blu-ray and 2x DVD deluxe box sets, with the video footage having been re-edited by Aubrey Powell/Hipgnosis from the original tape masters.
The iconic pulsating light is reintroduced in the new edition as per the original 1995 CD release. The deluxe packages include music videos, concert screen films, documentaries, Pulse Tour rehearsal footage and more, alongside a 60-page booklet.
Pulse, originally released as an album in 1995, was recorded on the European leg of Pink Floyd’s “Division Bell” tour. The DVD and Blu-ray packages include the whole live performance of The Dark Side Of The Moon – the only full live filmed recording of this seminal album.
The concert, filmed at Earls Court in London, saw Pink Floyd play some of their classic tracks as well as highlights from the recently released album The Division Bell. Standout tracks include “High Hopes,” “Keep Talking,” “Sorrow,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Comfortably Numb” and “The Great Gig In The Sky.”
Reflecting on the original CD release and the pulsing LED light, Pink Floyd founder member Nick Mason said, “Essentially, it’s a device which we thought was entertaining. I t’s an idea of Storm Thorgerson’s which related to The Dark Side Of The Moon and the pulse, and it’s a live album so the box is ‘alive’. After that, in terms of seriously deep meanings, one might be struggling a bit.”
