An original Japanese pressing of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother, pressed on red vinyl and including the original obi
Offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing of Pink Floyd’s 1970 LP, Atom Heart Mother, pressed on red vinyl and including the original obi.
For many Pink Floyd fans, Atom Heart Mother isn’t their go-to album of choice, but it sold well in a number of countries, particularly Japan.
AllMusic.com described it thusly: Appearing after the sprawling, unfocused double-album set Ummagumma, Atom Heart Mother may boast more focus, even a concept, yet that doesn’t mean it’s more accessible. If anything, this is the most impenetrable album Pink Floyd released while on Harvest, which also makes it one of the most interesting of the era. Still, it may be an acquired taste even for fans, especially since it kicks off with a side-long, 23-minute extended orchestral piece that may not seem to head anywhere, but is often intriguing, more in what it suggests than what it achieves.
In Japan, first issues of Atom Heart Mother were pressed on red “Everclean” vinyl and while it’s the most common Pink Floyd title to find on red wax, it’s still quite difficult to find one in playable condition and even harder to find with the original obi. Most of the copies of Atom Heart Mother we’ve seen from Japan over the years were in poor condition.
About this copy: The copy offered for sale is in great condition; the cover is VG+, with some edge wear at the top of the cover. The nearly-always-missing obi is also VG+, with just a few wrinkles and it includes the “hojyuhyo” or reorder tag, which is often missing. The red vinyl disc is VG++, with a few very light scuffs and a few spindle marks on the labels. The six page lyric/photo/information insert is included.
A nice copy of an album that’s hard to find complete on red vinyl.
