Pink Floyd – Money/Another Brick sealed pink vinyl promo 12″ single

pink floyd - money pink vinyl promo

Offered for sale is a still sealed pink vinyl promotional single of “Money” and “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2” by Pink Floyd.

This single features the newly-recorded version of “Money” that appeared on the “A Collection of Great Dance Songs” LP.

About this copy:   This copy of “Money” is an original, still sealed pink vinyl 12″ single, issued in 1981 as a promotional item.  This single was issued in a plain die-cut cover.

As the disc is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.  The single is packaged in a thick plastic sleeve that was sealed with a hype sticker.

The sticker has no tears.  There’s a bit of price sticker residue on the wrap.

A nice copy of a scarce Pink Floyd item and the first copy of this that we’ve had in a while.

Background: In 1981, Columbia Records released a Pink Floyd compilation LP called A Collection of Great Dance Songs. While this album contained tracks from the band’s time with Columbia, and not material from their Capitol/Harvest years, the album does include a new recording of “Money,” originally from the Dark Side of the Moon album.

To promote the Dance Songs LP, Columbia released a 12″ single containing the newly recorded version “Money” along with “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2.”  This single was pressed on pink vinyl and was issued only as a promotional item.

Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon sealed 30th anniversary EU LP

pink floyd - dark side of the moon 30th anniversary LP

Offered for sale is a still sealed limited edition 30th anniversary pressing of The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, pressed in the EU in 2003.

This LP was pressed on 180 gram vinyl and includes all original inserts – two posters and two stickers, along with a special insert with details about the pressing.

About this copy: This copy of The Dark Side of the Moon is a 2003 issue, pressed in the EU.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears or holes.

A beautiful copy of a classic LP.

Background: For the 30th anniversary of the release of The Dark Side of the Moon, EMI went back to the original master tapes and mixed a new two track master tape, as the original master tapes had long been worn out from excessive use.

The LP was then pressed on high quality 180 gram vinyl and packaged with all of the original inserts.

The result is, in our opinion, the best sounding version of The Dark Side of the Moon we’ve ever heard.  We have a copy of this in our collection and we prefer it to both the Mobile Fidelity UHQR pressing and the original UK “blue triangle” pressing.

This one sounds terrific.

The Dark Side of the Moon was Pink Floyd’s eighth album and it’s the one that made them superstars. Reaching #1 in the U.S. and #2 in the UK, the album is one of the biggest selling albums in history.

While the album topped the U.S. charts for only one week, it spent 741 weeks in the U.S. top 200 – fifteen years.

Allmusic.com gave The Dark Side of the Moon a rare 5 star review:

By condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush, immaculate production to their trippiest instrumental sections, Pink Floyd inadvertently designed their commercial breakthrough with Dark Side of the Moon. …Pink Floyd may have better albums than Dark Side of the Moon, but no other record defines them quite as well as this one.

Pink Floyd – Animals limited edition pink cover French pink vinyl LP

pink floyd -animals french pink vinyl lp

Offered for sale is a rare French pressing of Pink Floyd’s Animals, pressed on pink vinyl and is the rare variation with the all-pink cover and inner sleeve.

There is nothing printed on either one; they’re simply pink.

About this copy:  This copy of Animals is a 1977 French pressing on pink vinyl with the all pink cover, rather than the more common version that featured the cover with the Battersea power station.

This LP is virtually perfect, and is the nicest example we’ve ever seen that wasn’t still in the shrink wrap.

The cover is M-, as is the inner sleeve, which has no splits.

The pink vinyl disc is M- and may be unplayed.

A beautiful copy of a scarce Pink Floyd LP and a very hard LP to find in this condition.

Background: Animals was the tenth studio album by Pink Floyd. The album reached #2 in the UK and #3 on the U.S.album charts.

In the late 1970s, collectors began to show interest in colored vinyl and picture discs, and record companies began issuing limited editions of both old and new albums in those formats in order to generate additional revenue. Most of these titles were available only for a short time, and many of the titles made in Europe were widely exported to the U.S.

During this time, there were a number of colored vinyl albums issued around the world by Pink Floyd, but the 1977 pressing of Animals from France on pink vinyl may have been the first.

For some reason, Harvest Records in France released two versions of this colored vinyl LP.

The harder-to-find first version came in a cover that was all pink, with no graphics or writing whatsoever. The inner sleeve was also all pink, again with no writing.

The pink vinyl record had the standard custom label that appeared on other versions of the album issued worldwide.

The second issue featured the regular cover depicting the pig flying over the Battersea power station and included the standard custom lyric sleeve.

That version had a sticker on the bag in which the album was shipped that said “Disque rouge – tirage limite” (“Pink Disk – Limited Edition”.)

Little is known about these all pink pressings, or why they were made in addition to those with the regular covers. We’ve seen them advertised as “promotional copies,” but there is nothing on the record or cover to suggest that they are promos, and we remember these being sold at retail when they were new.

It’s possible that the first version was released before the French record company had received the proper album cover artwork from the band’s British label.

Allmusic.com gave Animals a 4 star review:

Of all of the classic-era Pink Floyd albums, Animals is the strangest and darkest, a record that’s hard to initially embrace yet winds up yielding as many rewards as its equally nihilistic successor, The Wall. It isn’t that Roger Waters dismisses the human race as either pigs, dogs, or sheep, it’s that he’s constructed an album whose music is as bleak and bitter as that world view. …Through it all, though, the utter blackness of Waters’ spirit holds true, and since there are no vocal hooks or melodies, everything rests on the mood, the near-nihilistic lyrics, and Gilmour’s guitar. These are the kinds of things that satisfy cultists, and it will reward their attention — there’s just no way in for casual listeners.

Pink Floyd – Animals original Japan LP with obi and rare sticker

pink floyd -animals japan lp

Offered for sale is a rare complete Japanese pressing of Animals by Pink Floyd, including the original obi and the rare and nearly-always-missing title sticker.

About this copy: This copy of Animals is an original Japanese issue and is in exceptional condition.

Background: Animals was the tenth studio album by Pink Floyd.  The album reached #2 in the UK and #3 on the U.S.album charts.

Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here 1978 Dutch blue vinyl LP

pink floyd - wish you were here blue vinyl lp

Offered for sale is a limited edition blue vinyl pressing of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd, released in the Netherlands.

About this copy: This copy of Wish You Were Here is a Dutch blue vinyl pressing, released in 1978 on the Harvest label.

The cover is VG++, with a couple of minor corner dents and a small smudge near the mouth, but no wear, holes, or tears.

The vinyl is M-, with a couple of minor sleeve scuffs, but no other marks.  The disc may be unplayed.

A beautiful copy of a rare Pink Floyd LP that rarely turns up in this condition, as most copies have major cover wear.

Background: Released in 1975, Wish You Were Here was the ninth studio album by Pink Floyd, and it reached #1 on the charts in both the UK and the U.S.

The LP was released on blue vinyl in 1978 in both the Netherlands and Germany as part of a large number of limited edition colored vinyl pressings that came out worldwide that year.

Allmusic.com gave Wish You Were Here a 5 star review:

Pink Floyd followed the commercial breakthrough of Dark Side of the Moon with Wish You Were Here, a loose concept album about and dedicated to their founding member Syd Barrett. The record unfolds gradually, as the jazzy textures of “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” reveal its melodic motif, and in its leisurely pace, the album shows itself to be a warmer record than its predecessor. Musically, it’s arguably even more impressive, showcasing the group’s interplay and David Gilmour’s solos in particular. And while it’s short on actual songs, the long, winding soundscapes are constantly enthralling.

Pink Floyd – Animals limited edition1977 French pink vinyl LP

pink floyd -animals french pink vinyl lp

Offered for sale is a limited edition French pressing of Pink Floyd’s Animals, pressed on pink vinyl.

About this copy:  This copy of Animals is a 1977 French pressing on pink vinyl with the standard cover featuring the Battersea power station.

The cover retains the thick plastic bag with the large sticker that says “Disque Rouge – Tirage Limite”.

This sticker was originally used to seal the bag closed, but the original owner opened the back at the other end (rather crudely, it would appear) to leave the sticker intact.

The sticker is fully intact with no rips, tears, holes, or writing.

The cover is M-, as is the custom inner sleeve, which has no splits.

The pink vinyl disc is M- and appears to have only been played a couple of times.

A beautiful copy of a scarce Pink Floyd LP.

Background: Animals was the tenth studio album by Pink Floyd. The album reached #2 in the UK and #3 on the U.S.album charts.

Pink Floyd – The Division Bell sealed original U.S. 1994 blue vinyl LP

pink floyd - the division bell sealed LP

Offered for sale is an original 1994 still sealed blue vinyl U.S. pressing of The Division Bell by Pink Floyd.

About this copy: This copy of The Division Bell is an original still sealed U.S. pressing, presumably on blue vinyl, issued in 1994 on Columbia records.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.  As far as we know all original U.S. issues were blue vinyl, so that is what you should find inside.

There is a small break in the shrink wrap (about 1/2″) in the upper left hand corner at the top edge.  There is a small piece of wrap missing on the front near the upper right hand corner.

A terrific copy of an LP that has become quite hard to find in recent years.

Background: Released in 1994, The Division Bell was Pink Floyd’s first studio album in seven years and the second without founding member Roger Waters.  Despite mixed critical reception, the album reached #1 on the American album charts.

The album was released in LP form in both the U.S. and the UK.  While the UK pressings were issued on standard black vinyl, the American pressings were available on a translucent light blue vinyl.

The LP version of The Division Bell has a playing time of about 8 minutes shorter than the compact disc version, as seven of the eleven songs on the album were shortened for the LP version.
