Offered for sale is an original UK mono pressing of A Saucerful of Secrets, the second album by Pink Floyd.
The U.S. release was issued only in stereo; the mono mix is quite different.
About this copy: This copy of A Saucerful of Secrets is a 1968 UK mono pressing on the black and blue Columbia label.
The laminated flipback cover is VG++ with slight edge wear on the back.
The disc is a weak VG+ with a number of faint marks and a number of spindle marks on the labels. It looks quite clean at first glance and plays well.
Stampers are G on side one and G on side two; this copy was one of the first 300 copies pressed.
A nice copy of a very rare Pink Floyd 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.
Allmusic.com gave A Saucerful of Secrets a 3 1/2 star review:
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.
