Description

Offered for sale is a UK stereo pressing of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn by Pink Floyd.

This is the third UK stereo issue, with the black/silver label, no “Sold in UK text” on the label, and a laminated flipback cover.  The inner sleeve has an ad for the Beatles Let It Be LP, dating it to 1970.

About this copy: This copy of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is a 1970 pressing on the black and silver Columbia label.

The cover is VG+ with a few minor creases in the lamination and faint ring wear on the back cover.

The disc is VG++ on side one with a faint hairline across the side.  Side two is M-.  The record has clearly had very little play.

Stampers are “RO” on side one and “RA” on side two.

A nice copy of a rare Pink Floyd LP.  This copy comes from our own collection and has been our “play” copy for years.  It’s a beauty.

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.

Allmusic.com gave The Piper at the Gates of Dawn a 5 star review:

 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.
