Tracklisting & More Information

It was common practice in the UK to press a small quantity of domestic release LPs as Export only copies. Sometimes they would use UK release type labels, for example the Parlophone presses of some Export Beatles LPs, and sometimes they would need to press on a different label, for example the London releases of some Export Rolling Stones LPs.

This first release for Export copy was pressed with Odeon labels as 'Columbia' was a registered trademark of CBS in other parts of the world & not a trademark of EMI. Subsequent releases of this album had the familiar boxed logo Columbia labels with gold Odeon stickers over the label logos, making this the only UK Export release with Odeon labels on the disc.

Like subsequent issues, this release used the UK printed Garrod & Lofthouse sleeve with a gold Odeon sticker placed over the Columbia logo on the back. Unlike the later issues, this sticker has 'Regd. Trade Mark Of The Gramophone Co. Ltd.' text instead of 'Regd. Trade Mark of E.M.I. Records Limited'. This confirms that the sleeve and the vinyl match up.

Documenting a time where their eccentric genius, Syd Barrett, was fast deteriorating with mental health problems, this is the only Pink Floyd album that features five menbers. Syd himself appears on just three, contributing slide guitar to Remember A Day and second guitar on 'Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun', as well as on his sole songwriting contribution, Jugband Blues.

Condition:

The Sleeve is the classic front laminated flipback type, common at EMI at the time. As previously mentioned, this is identical to a regular UK edition with the exception of the gold Odeon sticker on the back.
Given that the laminate fails to reach the edges of the sleeve at any point by over a quarter of an inch in some places, standard with 'floating laminate' to varying degrees, this copy has survived extremely well.
Visually, there is just a little light shelfwear and some minor creasing to the laminate in places around the edges. The spine is still clearly readable and even those areas at the edges not protected by laminate show very little wear. The gold Odeon sticker is unworn and the 'Regd. Trade Mark of The Gramophone Co. Ltd.' text is clearly visible.
You would be very, very, unlikely to find a copy of this in better condition.

The labels are silver on black Odeon with 'LONG PLAYING' text at the top and 'MADE IN GT BRITAIN' text at the bottom. These carry the PSCX catalogue number rather than the later issues which carried the SCX prefixes.
There are just a few spindle marks visible around the centre hole and no wear apparent to the labels at all.

The vinyl is spectacular. At the risk of boring you, I shall still tell you that the matrices end '-1', even though they all did.
Defying its forty five years, the vinyl still shines nearly as much as it would have when new. Although it has been played, it has obviously been extremely well cared for and played on good equipment. It still retains just the two grooves it was born with, without the addition of any further surface hairlines or scuffs.
This copy really does remain near 'as new'.

An amazing copy of this extremely rare first UK export edition LP in as good a condition as you are ever likely to see. In thirty years of trading and scouring the world for things just like this, even we have never seen such a beautiful condition example. If you have been looking for a copy of this very rare release, then this is the one you want - Don't miss out.
