Offered for sale is a UK stereo export pressing of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn by Pink Floyd, with “Odeon” stickers covering the Columbia logos on the labels and cover.
These pressings were exported from the UK to certain South American countries where the band’s albums would ordinarily appear on the Odeon label.
About this copy: This copy of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is a 1978 pressing on the black and silver Columbia label, with gold Odeon stickers covering the Columbia logos.
The cover is VG, with a record impression and a bit of lamination cracking on the front cover and moderate ring wear on the back cover.
We believe that the paper inner sleeve is not original to this LP.
The disc is VG++ and close to M-, with a couple of light scuffs. The record has clearly had very little play.
A nice copy of a rare Pink Floyd LP.
Background: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, released in 1967, was the first LP from Pink Floyd and the only album by the band to predominantly feature founding member Syd Barrett.
The album reached #6 on the UK album charts, but only reached #131 on the U.S. charts.
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn successfully captures both sides of psychedelic experimentation — the pleasures of expanding one’s mind and perception, and an underlying threat of mental disorder and even lunacy; this duality makes Piper all the more compelling in light of Barrett’s subsequent breakdown, and ranks it as one of the best psychedelic albums of all time.
