Pink Floyd ‘Animals’ Album Cover Recreated Over London
Do you have Pink Floyd's "Animals" album?
It was like deja vu yesterday in London when a giant inflatable pig, 30 x 15 feet, flew over the Battersea Power Station.
Organizers had hoped to use the original vinyl pig that's been in storage for 35 years, but it had leaks so they created a new one.
Along with the reissued versions coming out on September 27, a two-disc "Experience" version of "Dark Side of the Moon" and "The Discovery Studio Album Box Set" will be released. "Experience" versions of "Wish You Were Here" and "The Wall" are planned for the coming months.
Luckily, the promotional event this week went smoother than the original album cover photo shoot. In 1976, the pig broke lose from it's moorings and floated into the flight path for London's Heathrow airport. It was later located in a farmer's field.
