Offered for sale is a limited edition white vinyl pressing of The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, issued in the Netherlands in 1978.
About this copy: This copy of The Dark Side of the Moon is an original 1978 Dutch issue, pressed on white vinyl as a limited edition.
The cover is VG++, with slight wear at the corners.
The white vinyl disc is M- and appears to have had little, if any play. There is a small tear on the side 2 label near the spindle hole that appears to be a manufacturing error.
This version of the LP was issued without inserts.
A beautiful copy of an album that’s surprisingly hard to find in good condition and the first copy we’ve had in many years.
Background: The Dark Side of the Moon was Pink Floyd’s eighth album and it’s the one that made them superstars. Reaching #1 in the U.S. and #2 in the UK, the album is one of the biggest selling albums in history.
While the album topped the U.S. charts for only one week, it spent 741 weeks in the U.S. top 200 – fifteen years.
Due to popularity with buyers, the album has been released in multiple limited editions around the world over the years, including several different colored vinyl pressings and as a picture disc.
The 1978 edition on white vinyl was issued in both the Netherlands and Germany, but not in the U.S., where it was released only as a picture disc.
By condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush, immaculate production to their trippiest instrumental sections, Pink Floyd inadvertently designed their commercial breakthrough with Dark Side of the Moon. …Pink Floyd may have better albums than Dark Side of the Moon, but no other record defines them quite as well as this one.
