DESCRIPTION+

Inspired by a particularly cosmic story in the band’s history. In 1988 Pink Floyd released their first live album ‘Delicate Sound of Thunder’, recorded during the A Momentary Lapse of Reason tour. It also happened to be the first album by the band to be officially released in the Soviet Union. In November 1988, Gilmour and Mason were invited to watch the launch of Soyez TM-7 on its Soviet-French mission to the MIR space station. The cosmonauts on the mission took aboard the album on a cassette, it is reportedly to have been the first rock album to be played in space and was left in orbit on MIR when the mission crew returned to Earth.
