Offered for sale is a Japanese red vinyl pressing of More, the third album by Pink Floyd, including the original obi.
About this copy: This copy of More is a 1970 Japanese pressing on the Odeon label of an album that was originally released in 1969.
This copy was pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl and includes a gatefold cover that was not included on the original 1969 issue.
The gatefold cover is VG+ with slight corner and edge wear. The obi is VG with a few wrinkles, but no tears. The “hojyuhyo” (reorder tag) is still attached.
This LP was issued without an insert.
The red vinyl disc is M- on side one and VG++ on side two with a couple of faint scuffs through the first two tracks. There are a few spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl. Clean disc!
A nice copy of a terrific record.
Background: Released in 1969, More was the third album by Pink Floyd and the first without founder Syd Barrett.
The album reached #153 on the U.S. album charts.
Allmusic.com gave More a 3 star review:
Commissioned as a soundtrack to the seldom-seen French hippie movie of the same name, More was a Pink Floyd album in its own right, reaching the Top Ten in Britain… Several of the tracks are pleasantly inconsequential, but this record does include some strong compositions, especially “Cymbaline,” “Green Is the Colour,” and “The Nile Song.” All of these developed into stronger pieces in live performances, and better, high-quality versions are available on numerous bootlegs.
You can listen to “Green is the Colour” here:
As with most albums in Japan, More was released multiple times, with multiple catalog numbers, multiple obis, and on both black and red vinyl. The first issue was pressed on red vinyl and had a single pocket cover and a now-impossibly-hard-to-find “New Rock” obi; the second issue had a gatefold cover and was pressed on both red and black vinyl with a black obi with orange print. Later issues were pressed on black vinyl only and had an obi that was unique to that particular reissue.
The first issue is extraordinarily rare and rarely turns up for sale. The second issue, which came out the same year as the first one, was more successful in the Japanese market, but has become much harder to find in recent years, especially in good condition.
