Offered for sale is a rare blue vinyl pressing of Omayyad by Pink Floyd, released by the collectible Trademark of Quality label and including the original title insert.
About this copy: This copy of Omayyad is a 1972 third pressing, with the smaller “sideways pig” or “farm pig” labels that say, “Made in Holland.”
Matrix numbers are PF515A-1/B-2.
The blue cover is VG+ , with slight fading at the edges, but no tears, writing or splits.
The title of the album has been well-stamped on the cover, and there’s an orange sticker that says “Trade Mark of Quality” on the cover.
The original insert is M-.
The blue vinyl disc is VG++ and very close to M-, with a couple of faint sleeve scuffs. Side one has a small mark that almost looks like a stain. It’s not a scratch and it’s inaudible. (see photo)
A beautiful copy of a rare Pink Floyd LP and the nicest copy we’ve seen in a long time. Really good album, too!
Background: Released in 1972, Omayyad (sometimes written as, “Omay Yad) was one of only two Pink Floyd titles (the other was Pink Floyd Live, aka “Cymbaline”) released on the Trademark or Quality label.
Both titles sold poorly when new, as the band had not yet become superstars at the time of those albums’ release.
Both titles are quite rare today.
Omayyad included a mixture of both studio and live tracks:
- Oenone (studio outtake from the soundtrack to Zabriskie Point)
- Fingal’s Cave (studio outtake from the soundtrack to Zabriskie Point)
- Interstellar Overdrive (live – Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, California, May 1, 1970*)
- Crumbling Land (long version; studio outtake from the soundtrack to Zabriskie Point)
- Rain in the Country (studio outtake from the soundtrack to Zabriskie Point)
- Embryo (live – Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, California, May 1, 1970*)
*The live tracks were long thought to have been recorded at an October 27, 1971 show in Chicago, Illinois, but this has turned out to be incorrect.
