Offered for sale is an original 1994 still sealed blue vinyl U.S. pressing of The Division Bell by Pink Floyd.
About this copy: This copy of The Division Bell is an original 1994 U.S. pressing on the Columbia Records label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed. As far as we know all original U.S. issues were blue vinyl, so that is what you should find inside.
There is a small break in the shrink wrap (about 3 1/2″ or 9 cm) at the mouth of the cover. We have secured this with tape to prevent further splitting of the shrink wrap.
An original price sticker (not shown) is attached to the upper right hand corner of the front cover.
A terrific copy of an LP that has become quite hard to find in recent years.
Background: Released in 1994, The Division Bell was Pink Floyd’s first studio album in seven years and the second without founding member Roger Waters. Despite mixed critical reception, the album reached #1 on the American album charts.
The album was released in LP form in both the U.S. and the UK. While the UK pressings were issued on standard black vinyl, the American pressings were available on a translucent light blue vinyl.
The LP version of The Division Bell has a playing time of about 8 minutes shorter than the compact disc version, as seven of the eleven songs on the album were shortened for the LP version.
Allmusic.com gave The Division Bell this review:
The second post-Roger Waters Pink Floyd album is less forced and more of a group effort than A Momentary Lapse of Reason — keyboard player Richard Wright is back to full bandmember status and has co-writing credits on five of the 11 songs, even getting lead vocals on “Wearing the Inside Out.” …. Musically, Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Wright have largely turned the clock back to the pre-Dark Side of the Moon Floyd, with slow tempos, sustained keyboard chords, and guitar solos with a lot of echo.
