Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon sealed 1979 picture disc

A sealed copy of the limited edition picture disc version of Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd.


Offered for sale is a still sealed copy of the picture disc version of Dark Side of the Moon, by Pink Floyd, issued as a limited edition in 1979.

In the late 1970s, record companies began issuing picture discs of new albums as promotional items.  They became quite popular among collectors, so the record companies began releasing limited edition picture disc versions of both then-new titles as well as older popular titles from their back catalog.

One of the older titles released by Capitol Records was Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, then (and now) one of the best-selling albums in history.

The picture disc fad was a short-lived one, as consumers began to balk at the idea of paying nearly twice as much for a limited edition item that didn’t sound as good as the regular pressing.  In time, these limited edition pressings became somewhat scarce, particularly in new, unopened condition.

About this copy: This copy of Dark Side of the Moon is a still sealed limited edition picture disc of the entire album, released in 1979.  The record is presumably new and unplayed.

There is one bent corner and a couple of tiny breaks in the wrap at the corners.  Otherwise, the wrap is fully intact with no cuts, rips, tears or punch holes.

A nice copy of a terrific record, and the first copy of this one that we’ve had in quite a while.
