Offered for sale is a 1971 Japanese second pressing of Pink Floyd’s 1968 LP, A Saucerful of Secrets, pressed on red vinyl and including the original lyric insert and obi.
Pink Floyd’s second album, 1968’s A Saucerful of Secrets, was a transitional one; founder Syd Barrett was on his way out after a series of health and personal problems, and former Joker’s Wild guitarist David Gilmour was brought in to replace him. This is the only album on which all five members of Pink Floyd played; while Gilmour plays on all seven tracks, Barrett plays on only three, providing vocals on the album’s closing track, Jugband Blues. The title track of the album was the first of many long, spacy tracks to come from the band on subsequent albums.
While seven different Pink Floyd albums were released on red “Everclean” vinyl in Japan, some are harder to find than others, and the first three albums were issued on red vinyl twice. A Saucerful of Secrets is one of the harder titles to find on red vinyl.
