Offered for sale is a rare blue vinyl pressing of Atom Heart Mother by Pink Floyd, issued in France in 1978.
About this copy: This copy of Atom Heart Mother is a limited edition blue vinyl pressing, issued in France in 1978 or 1979. The cover is VG+, with slight wear at the edges and a 1″ tear at the top center edge. The record is VG++. It’s very close to M-, but just has a couple of very faint scuffs from being removed from the inner sleeve.
A beautiful copy of a rare record and only the second copy that we have ever seen.
Background: In the late 1970s, collectors were showing a lot of interest in colored vinyl records, so record companies around the world began issuing limited edition colored vinyl pressings of a few then-new titles as well as some older ones. A few titles were issued in the United States, but far more titles were issued in Europe, mostly for export.
Forty years later, some of these titles are fairly common and others are far harder to find.
One of the rarer ones is this blue vinyl pressing of Atom Heart Mother by Pink Floyd. The album was never one of the band’s bigger-selling LPs, and the colored vinyl albums from France were not widely exported, making them hard to find even when new.
There are also French colored vinyl pressings of Dark Side of the Moon (clear and blue), and Animals (pink.) All are hard to find today. We are not aware of any other colored vinyl pressings of Atom Heart Mother aside from the red vinyl Japanese issue.
