Legacy Recordings To Reissue Roger Waters Solo Classic, Amused To Death, In July

Roger Waters Amused To DeathIt seems as if we have waited forever for the promise of Amused To Death by Roger Waters on SACD (it’s still in the plans). But just as we might have been giving up some hope, Sony comes around with a magnificent plan to reissue the solo classic from 1992 in a variety of upgrades that include 5.1 remixes and Blu-ray Audio discs, 200g vinyl 2LP, and a variety of DD availability.

On July 24, Legacy Recordings will reissue Amused To Death with a 5.1 remix, and Stereo remaster by James Guthrie. The availability will include standard CD, a CD/BD-Audio Deluxe Edition (with the 5.1 Surround mix), 2LP (black vinyl), 2LP (Limited Edition picture), and DD.

The sets will come with new artwork, no doubt an expansive booklet (lyrics, pictures, notes), and perhaps even more.

Rogers Waters’ Amused To Death To Get Audio Remixes

Roger Waters Amused To DeathAs Pink Floyd dismantled the collective engines of their greatness, tossing the bolts haphazardly aside so as to effectively prevent them from creating as a viable unit, Roger Waters moved on to create more albums that would have made more classic Pink Floyd. One of them is his last rock and roll solo studio work, Amused To Death. Amused To Death is an exploration of the human psyche, and humanity’s collective lapses, all encouraged by television as a media of exchange.

Musically, Waters is easily at the top of his usual game with this album. Amused To Death can be called by some as Waters’ most provocative work since his departure from the band that gave him his accepted voice. And Roger Waters is one of humanity’s harshest critics noted by his previous works like Animals.

It’s a welcome surprise to discover that Amused To Death is being revisited by Waters and Pink Floyd’s most trusted sound engineer, Jame Guthrie.  With the dominating presence of the internet, much more than when Amused To Death was first released back in 1992. the intensity of the album now takes on a whole new meaning and import.

Acoustic Sounds, along with Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings will, later this year, release a new audio update of Amused To Death with new Stereo mix, as well as a new fleshed out 5,1 Surround mix.  In addition to these things (which would make the most devout of fans happy enough), there will be new, never before released “content” and brand new graphics.

Exciting news? We think so!
