This copy of A Saucerful of Secrets comes from our own collection. We’ve had it since 1987 and obtained it from a longtime autograph dealer/collector who was a friend of ours.
He collected the signatures personally over a period of several years.
- David GIlmour has signed in thin blue marker at the bottom of the cover.
- Nick Mason has signed in blue ballpoint pen.
- Roger Waters has signed in a thick black marker at the right side of the cover.
- Richard Wright has signed in a different style of black marker just below the word “pink” at the top of the cover.
While the signatures are sharp and legible, the artwork for this particular album makes them somewhat hard to see. Still, it’s a nice example that will display well.
A beautiful copy of a great 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.
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.
