Pink Floyd‘s official and verified Instagram page has shared a new photo today and compared the whole ‘The Division Bell’ covers which were released in different formats in record stores.
The Division Bell was the fourteenth studio album of the legendary progressive rock band Pink Floyd and it was released on 28 March 1994 by Columbia Records and EMI Records. While the album features 11 original tracks, 6 additional LP tracks, and 11 tracks for the 20th-anniversary double-lp edition, it’s one of the most controversial albums of Floyd with its mixed reviews after the release.
As you will check out the comparison photos of the albums below, there are so many minor differences between the cover arts of The Division Bell just like the ground, weather, filtres that were used, etc… However, the most common version of the album is the one that was released in the United Kingdom and it’s the third one on the post.
Here is what’s written in the caption of the post to celebrate the 27th anniversary of the album:
“Our final look back at a Pink Floyd March album: Today in 1994, The Division Bell was released in the UK.
Those choosing from the different formats in record stores would have noticed subtle differences between the covers; this image shows just a handful of the shots Storm Thorgerson and his team took!”
