Pink Floyd - The Division Bell 1. UK press and 2014 reissue

The 20th anniversary deluxe edition. Instagram photo by jokum1975
Pink Floyd's “The Division Bell” was first released in 1994 by EMI Records in Europe and by Columbia Records in USA. The album title is a lyric line from the song High Hopes, but titles as Pow Wow and Down to Earth was also discussed. The album went straight to #1 on the album charts in both the UK and USA, but received poor reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. The album was nominated in the 1995 Brit-Awards but lost to one of UK's great brit-pop artists, Blur and their album “Parklife”.

Reissues
The Division Bell was first reissued in 2011 on CD as a part of the “Discovery Box” and then again in June 2014 on vinyl as a 20th anniversary deluxe edition.
