Offered for sale is an early UK stereo pressing of A Saucerful of Secrets by Pink Floyd on the black and silver Columbia label.
About this copy: This copy of A Saucerful of Secrets is a 1973 fifth UK stereo pressing of an album that was originally released in 1968.
This version does not have a flipback cover, has EMI logos at the top and the bottom of the label, and has an error on side two, where “Jugband Blues,” the third and final track on the side, is listed as track 4.
The cover is VG+, with slight corner and edge wear. The original EMI paper inner sleeve is M-.
The disc is VG++ and close to M- with a couple of very faint sleeve scuffs. There are only one or two spindle marks on the labels; this copy has been rarely played. Clean disc!
A nice copy of a terrific LP.
Background: Released in 1968, A Saucerful of Secrets was the second album by Pink Floyd, the first to include guitarist/singer David Gilmour, and the last to include founder/guitarist/singer Syd Barrett.
The album reached #9 on the UK charts but only reached #158 on the U.S. charts.
A transitional album on which the band moved from Syd Barrett’s relatively concise and vivid songs to spacy, ethereal material with lengthy instrumental passages. Barrett’s influence is still felt (he actually did manage to contribute one track, the jovial “Jugband Blues”), and much of the material retains a gentle, fairy-tale ambience.
