Classics never go out of style they say and so we are delighted to announce our outstanding collection of Pink Floyd records, now on sale at The Record Album, just in time for the visit of Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets tour to the Brighton Dome next month.
Starting from near the very beginning, with early pressings of Syd Barrett-era Floyd, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn and Saucerful of Secrets, and including beautiful copies of virtually every official release since, we have been gathering this collection for months. Among the jewels are two very rare German pressings of the mid-70s classics, Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, both pressed on coloured vinyl and in immaculate condition and of course, given our interest in soundtracks, lovely copies of Obscured By Clouds and More.
We also have a pristine version of the regrettably named A Nice Pair, (containing Piper and Saucerful) which has the famous picture of the Phang dentist’s window which had to be swiftly changed after a legal complaint.
There are some prime examples of the band members’ solo work, including Roger Waters’s The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking. We have also acquired a copy of the accompanying tour programme, a work of art in itself, which we are bundling with the record.
Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets – More Games For May featuring Nick Mason, Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken is at the Brighton Dome on Friday April 24
