Pink Floyd and others – Picnic 1970 2 LP UK sampler

A scarce 1970 2 LP set from Harvest Records in the UK titled Picnic, featuring a rare track from Pink Floyd

$99.00




Offered for sale is a scarce 2 LP sampler album called Picnic, issued in 1970 in the UK by Harvest Records to promote their label.

When Harvest Records was a fairly new label, they issued Picnic at a budget price of 29 shillings/11 pence to promote the label.  The 2 LP set contained tracks by Quatermass, Barclay James Harvest, Syd Barrett, Bakerloo, and Pink Floyd.  The album was highly sought out by collectors for many years, as it was once the only way to obtain the otherwise-unreleased Pink Floyd track, “Embryo”, which has since been released on several compilations.

Artists are:

Deep Purple
Barclay James Harvest
Pink Floyd
The Battered Ornaments
Shirley & Dolly Collins
Pretty Things
Roy Harper
Bakerloo
Kevin Ayers
The Greatest Show on Earth
Third Ear Band
Syd Barrett
Forest
Pete Brown and Piblokto
Panama Limited
Quatermass
Michael Chapman
Tea & Symphony
Edgar Broughton Band

The cover of this set is VG+, with a couple of bent corners.  The original price sticker is still attached to the cover. The discs are VG++, and have clearly had only a few plays.  A couple of sides have very faint sleeve scuffs.  Stampers are AA, AL, AO, AA and there is no EMI logo on the labels.

A nice copy of a scarce LP.
