Offered for sale is a limited edition Japanese Mastersound pressing of The Final Cut by Pink Floyd, including the original obi.

About this copy: This copy of The Final Cut is a 1983 pressing on the CBS/Sony label.

The outer cover is VG, with wear along the top edge.  The inner gatefold cover is VG++ and close to M- with slight edge and corner wear.

The obi is M-.  The lyric insert is VG+ with discoloration from age.

The disc is VG+ with several scuffs on each side and many spindle marks on the labels.  It’s a fairly clean disc that’s been well care for but it does play with some noise.

A nice copy of a scarce Pink Floyd LP.  This is the first copy of this version that we’ve ever had for sale.

Background: In the early 1980s, CBS Records in the U.S. and Japan created a limited edition series of high quality audiophile pressings of then-new and older LPs that were pressed on premium vinyl and sold at a premium price.  The series did not last long and most titles were quickly discontinued.

In the U.S., most of the titles were half speed mastered.  In Japan, most of the titles were digitally remastered pressings.

Released in 1983, The Final Cut was the twelfth studio album by Pink Floyd.

The album reached #1 on the UK charts and #6 in the U.S. gave The Final Cut a 3 star review:

The Final Cut extends the autobiography of The Wall, concentrating on Roger Waters’ pain when his father died in World War II. Waters spins this off into a treatise on the futility of war, concentrating on the Falkland Islands, setting his blistering condemnations and scathing anger to impossibly subdued music that demands full attention. This is more like a novel than a record, requiring total concentration since shifts in dynamics, orchestration, and instrumentation are used as effect. …And it’s equally clear that Pink Floyd couldn’t have continued in this direction — Waters had no interest in a group setting anymore, as this record, which is hardly a Floyd album in many respects, illustrates. Distinctive, to be sure, but not easy to love and, depending on your view, not even that easy to admire.
