A copy of the Dutch-only 2 LP set by Pink Floyd, Milestones, combining the Piper at the Gates of Dawn and Saucerful of Secrets LPs
Offered for sale is a scarce 2 LP set by Pink Floyd entitled, Milestones, released only in the Netherlands in 1973.
With the explosive sales of Dark Side of the Moon in 1973, Pink Floyd’s record company sought to use the sales of that LP to get the public to buy some of the band’s older titles. In most of the world, the early material was issued in a 2 LP set called, A Nice Pair. In the Netherlands, the first two albums, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn and A Saucerful of Secrets, were reissued as a 2 LP set with a gatefold cover, called Milestones. This album included the original UK version of the first album with eleven tracks, including Astronome Domine, Bike and Flaming, but omitting See Emily Play, which had been included on the American and Japanese versions of the album.
The copy offered for sale is a first issue of the album with black labels (second issues had red labels.) The records are VG+, with lots of shine but a few small marks. The cover is VG+, with a bit of lamination peeling on the spine.
A nice copy of a record that’s rather hard to find in this configuration.
