Offered for sale is a still sealed copy of the single LP picture disc edition of Delicate Sound of Thunder by Pink Floyd, released in Brazil in 1988.
This LP was issued only as a promotional item in Brazil and was not sold in stores.
About this copy: This copy of Delicate Sound of Thunder is a single-album picture disc edition released in Brazil and issued only as a promotional item.
The album was shipped in a thick plastic sleeve with a flap that was sealed shut with a sticker. That sticker is still intact; the record is presumably new and unplayed. A sticker listing the title, catalog number and song titles is attached to the sleeve.
A beautiful copy of one of the rarest Pink Floyd picture discs and only the second copy we’ve ever had for sale.
Background: Released in 1988, Delicate Sound of Thunder was Pink Floyd’s first proper live album (Ummagumma was half live/half studio) and the album documented the tour that followed the release of their 1987 “comeback” LP, Momentary Lapse of Reason.
Delicate Sound of Thunder was released worldwide as a two record set. In Brazil, an edited, single LP version of the album was pressed as a promotional picture disc after the record company abandoned plans to release the album commercially as a double picture disc set.
We don’t know how many copies of this picture disc were pressed, but it was likely only 100 or so.
Tracks on this single LP version are:
- Shine On You Crazy Diamond
- Learning to Fly
- Yet Another Movie
- Round and Around
- The Dogs of War
- On the Turning Away
