 Site contents


Apart from early Harvest labels not having an EMI logo on the label, there is not a lot to differentiate between the pressings. Colour shade variants exist with record labels and covers, both on early and later pressings. At the time of composing this page, this criterion has not been recognised.

                          

All the records have been professionally cleaned and play graded, and unless o/w stated, are original UK issues.
 The cleaned discs are placed into a new poly-lined inner, whilst the original inner sleeve is present.
The VG+ grade vinyl equates to some fine lines that could be misconstrued by some as NM with paper scuffs!

Apart from the several click-on to view images provided here, there are more
larger jpegs on file, with specific titles available on request, via email.

PINK FLOYD "THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN" ~ Columbia 6157 * 1967
  Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Rick Wright, Nicky Mason *  Astronomy Domine, Lucifer Sam, Matilda Mother, Flaming,
            Pow R. Toc H., Take Up Thy Stethoscope, Interstellar Overdrive, The Gnome, Chapter 24, The Scarecrow, Bike

 Note that the sales of 'Mono' LP's  were still dominant over 'Stereo' in 1967, Therefore, similar to Sgt. Pepper, etc,
    original pressings
of Pink Floyd's first album "Piper.." in Stereo are actually scarcer than the Mono edition
    The high price that is regularly attained  for the UK 'Mono' is due to the demand from collector's in other
     countries, in particular America and Japan.

 Two examples in stock:

 1) Black/ silver Columbia Stereo * one box EMI label,  cover has x3  flaps = end 1969 to end 1971 pressing * white back:

PINK FLOYD "A NICE PAIR" ~ Harvest SHDW 403 * 1973
 Stereo reissue of "THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN" and "A SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS" in a gatefold 
  cover that has  a collage of 35 different photographs or illustrations, and one square with the credits. Front
  top right square  originally printed with a photograph of dental surgeon's window, but as at that time dentists 
  were not permitted to advertise (yet who was? it was all in fun), this had to be changed ~ and was, to a photograph
  of a Buddah. However, EMI  managed to get out of having to scrap all original covers printed by placing a
  sticker over the 'Phang' image. There were 4 different circular stickers employed (possibly more?): 
  (1) plain blue (2) plain green (3) a blue 'SPECIAL DOUBLE ALBUM only 2.50 R.R.P.' (4) gold 'SPECIAL PRICE'
          It should not be attempted to remove the plain stickers, as could prove to be problematic!

  Note that the USA pressing has a variation with the g/f : 3 of the images are in a changed position,
   one different, and varying 'blotches'.

  Unless o/w specified, listed are all 'WR Phang' covers. 
  All have the illustrated Inners ( anorak on... the corner cuts on these vary also !).

 
1) Sleeve VG * Records OT2/ MR3 + OG3/ RG1 are VG- (play a variable VG to EX) @ 8
  2) Sleeve VG+ *  Records AH1/ MO2 + PR3/ MT1 are VG (play a variable VG to VG+)  @ 8
  3) Sleeve NM * Records AD1/ OH3 + OM3/ GT1 are EX- with s3 NM (play VG+ to NM)  @ 34
  4) Sleeve VG+ * Records TG2/ HH2 + HA2/ HM1 are G+ (play VG+, to mainly EX to NM) @ 12

 




PINK FLOYD "DARK SIDE OF THE MOON" ~ Harvest SHVL 804 * 1973

 Regarding the inserts; the paper of early posters were matte, progressing through the years into shiny and shinier.
 As for the 2 postcard size stickers, there at least eight variants to be found when comparing the backs!
 Many (not all) issues have a stickered titled sleeve. Early issues have a black poly-lined Inner, having patent info in white.

PINK FLOYD "WISH YOU WERE HERE" ~ Harvest SHVL 814 * 1975
 Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts 1 ~ 9, Welcome To The Machine, Have A Cigar, Title.

  Once unsealed, the black outer polythene tends to shrink back at least 1/2" from the opening edge.
  The circular sticker adhered to the poly is not placed on with careful thought, therefore most are
   not parallel with the cover...
existing permutations?.. now you do need help !
