Offered for sale is a green vinyl and purple vinyl copy of the U.S. double live album Pink Floyd Live, also known as Cymbaline, by Pink Floyd, issued by the Trademark of Quality label.
Note: This LP is one of the hardest titles to find from the Trademark of Quality catalog, and this is one of the rarest color variations of this title.
About this copy: This copy of Pink Floyd Live is a 1973 U.S. mono pressing on the collectible Trademark of Quality label, issued on the “smoking pig” variation of the label.
The cover is VG- with general wear. The entire top seam was split; this has been repaired. We will include a new plain white cover for storing the discs.
The insert is an original; it has been glued to the front cover. We don’t know if the cover has a stamped title under the insert or not. A name has been written on both the cover and insert in ballpoint pen.
The purple disc is VG-, with a number of light marks on each side, but no heavy scratches. The green disc is closer to VG+ with a number of light scuffs, but no significant marks. All four sides have “Pink Floyd” written on the labels in ballpoint pen.
The discs play well with some surface noise.
A nice, if imperfect, copy of a very rare Pink Floyd LP and the only copy we’ve seen in more than 40 years of looking for one. A mint copy of this would likely sell for $2000+.
Background: Released in 1973, but before the band became truly famous, Pink Floyd Live was the second Pink Floyd LP to be issued by the Trademark of Quality label.
The album had previously been issued on the small Dittoline label under the title Cymbaline, and it’s known by both titles in collector’s circles. For some reason, production on this particular title was quite limited; it’s one of the rarest titles by any artist issued by the Trademark of Quality label.
Recorded (in mono) at the Santa Monica Civic Center in Santa Monica, California on October 23, 1970. This is the same concert from which the live tracks “Embryo” and “Interstellar Overdrive” that appeared on the earlier Trademark of Quality LP Omayyad were sourced.
- Atom Heart Mother (Part 1)
- Atom Heart Mother (Part 2)
- Fat Old Sun (listed as “Sing to Me” on the insert)
- A Saucerful of Secrets
