Item Description

On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by Pink Floyd called "Dark Side Of The Moon" and is an INCREDIBLY rare 1973UK EARLIEST 'Transparent Triangle' Pressing - and has a completely UNIQUE COLOURED LABEL, that was NEVER used before or since!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLYRARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!!THIS IS ONE OFPINK FLOYD'S MOST SOUGHT AFTER LPs EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE (LIKE THIS!)!!!! HOWEVER THIS LP IS MADE REALLY SPECIAL INDEED AS IT IS THE RAREST POSSIBLE VERSION OF THIS LP EVER MADE -AND WAS ONLY PRESSED LIKE THIS FOR AN ABSOLUTELY TINY AMOUNT OF TIME ONLY!!!! I WILL EXPLAIN EXACTLY WHY THIS LP IS SO MASSIVELY RARE!!!!

THIS LP WAS RELEASED IN 1973 - JUST BEFORE THE HARVEST LABEL CHANGE - FROM THE 'GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' EDGE TEXT, TO THE 'EMI RECORDS' EDGE TEXT. IN FACT THIS LP IS ONE OF THE LAST LPs EVER TO BE RELEASED WITH THE 'GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' EDGE TEXT ON THE HARVEST LABEL!!!! AND, AS MANY PEOPLE WILL ALREADY KNOW - THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS OF THIS LP HAD A 'SOLID BLUE TRIANGLE' - AND THIS WAS CHANGED ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER RELEASE (TO MATCH THE COVER!). NOT ONLY THAT BUT THE 'GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' EDGE TEXT WAS CHANGED AT ALMOST THE SAME TIME - AND DROPPED IN FAVOUR OF 'EMI RECORDS' TEXT THAT FOLLOWED ON ALL LATER PRESSINGS!!!!HOWEVER - JUSTBEFORE 'THE GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' EDGE TEXT CHANGED AND JUST AFTER THE 'SOLID BLUE TRIANGLES' ENDED, ONLYA TINY HANDFUL WERE PRESSED WITH A TRANSPARENT TRIANGLE AND 'GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' LABEL EDGE TEXT!!!! AND THIS MAKES THIS LP VERY VERY RARE INDEED!!!! ONLY AN ABSOLUTELY TINY HANDFUL WERE EVER PRESSED LIKE THIS - AND IT IS WITHOUT ANY DOUBT THE RAREST POSSIBLE VARIATION OF THIS LP EVER MADE!!!!

BUT THERE IS ALSO 1 MASSIVE 'ADDED BONUS' TO THIS LP (WHICH MAKES IT THE 'EARLIEST' STANDARD 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE!) - AS THIS LP HAS 1 MORE AMAZING RARITY THAT ALL LATER ONES NEVER HAD!!!! WHEN THE LABELS WERE FIRST CHANGED FROM THE 'SOLID BLUE' TRIANGLE TO THE 'TRANSPARENT TRIANGLE' - THE COLOUR WAS INCORRECT ON THE 'EARLIEST' TRANSPARENT TRIANGLES ONLY!!!! THEY INCORRECTLY USED EXACTLY THE SAME COLOUR AS THE MIDDLE OF THE 'SOLID BLUE' TRIANGLE ON THE 'TRANSPARENT' LABELS - WHICH WAS FAR TOO LIGHT, AND STILL HID SOME OF THE TEXT!!!! IT ALSO OF COURSE, STILL DIDN'T MATCH THE COVER FRONT - WHICH WAS THE WHOLE REASON FOR THE CHANGE IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!! THIS 'WRONG COLOUR' ERROR WAS CORRECTED ALMOST IMMEDIATELY - AND IF YOU COMPARE THIS 'EARLIEST' TRANSPARENT PRESSING (THIS ONE!) - WITH ANY LATER PRESSING, YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT IT IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT & WRONG COLOUR (LATER ONES ARE TURQUOISE - ON THIS LABEL THE TRIANGLE IS SIMPLY VERY LIGHT BLUE!) AND ALSO MUCH THICKER AND FAR MORE SOLID LOOKING!!!! ONLY A TINY HANDFUL OF THE 'EARLIEST' TRANSPARENT LABELS (WITH 'GRAMOPHONE' TEXT!) WERE EVER MADE LIKE THIS - AND MAKES THIS THE ALL TIME RAREST VERSION OF THIS LP EVER MADE!!!!

AND THIS LP IS CLEARLY THE ALL TIME RAREST VERSION EVER MADE!!!! ON ONE LABEL - YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT THE 'TRANSPARENT' TRIANGLE STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL 'SOLD BLUE TRIANGLE' LIGHT BLUE COLOUR, WHEREAS THE OTHER LABEL HAS THE BRIGHT 'TURQUOISE' BLUE TRIANGLE, WHICH WAS DESIGNED TO MATCH THE COVER!!!! AND YET BOTH STILL HAVE THE ULTRA RARE 'GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' LABEL EDGE TEXT!!!! ONLY 200-300 COPIES COULD HAVE EVER HAVE BEEN MADE LIKE THIS - AND IT IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE ALL TIME RAREST VERSION OF THIS LP EVER MADE!!!!

THIS LP IS ALSO 100% COMPLETE WITH ITS ORIGINAL 'COLOUR' POSTERS, 'FASSON' STICKERS (LATER ONES ARE DIFFERENT!), AND BLACK 'POLY LINED' DIE-CUT INNER SLEEVE (LATER ONES DONT!)!!!! INCIDENTALLY - I HAVE NO HISTORY WITH THE BLACK INNER SLEEVE, AND ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO 'SILVER' TEXT ON THE INNER - IT STILL HAS THE CORRECT SHAPE, FLIPBACKS ON THE INNER EDGE, AND IS 'POLY LINED'!!!! SO IT COULD EASILY BE THE CORRECT INNER FOR THIS LP FROM THIS PERIOD!!!! NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT CONDITION - AND CLEARLY HASN'T BEEN PLAYED MUCH AT ALL!!!! AND THE POSTERS & STICKERS DONT EVER LOOK TO HAVE LEFT THE COVER!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1973 UK 'EARLIEST' STANDARD 'TRANSPARENT' PRESSING ON THE'EARLIEST' POSSIBLE 'LIGHTER BLUE' 'TRANSPARENT TRIANGLE' HARVEST LABEL WITH 'GRAMOPHONE COMPANY' EDGE TEXT, ULTRA RARE 'MISMATCHED' DIFFERENT COLOUR LABELS, BLACK 'POLY LINED' INNER SLEEVE, ULTRA RARE 'COLOUR' POSTERS & 'FASPRINT' BACKED STICKERS, AND 'GARROD & LOFTHOUSE' GATEFOLD COVER!!!! THIS IS EASILY THE RAREST POSSIBLE VARIATION OF THIS LP EVER PRESSED AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS -SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!!This is the ORIGINALHarvest UK Pressing from 1973 and is in SUPERB condition!!!! The record is pressed on THICK quality vinyl. The Cat. No is SHVL 804on the ORIGINALHarvestlabel (see picture) and is a UK Stereo Pressing (there were NO Monos)!!!!

The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO writing, NO wear (apart from a TINY trace of 'touching in' around the centre holes!), and only a few VERY light spindle marks!!!! IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THIS RECORD HASNT BEEN PLAYED MUCH AT ALL!!!! The vinyl is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! Most of these 60s/70s LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO scratches, only 2 or 3 MEGA light hairlines, NO scufflines, and only a VERYfew of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK AND SHINES LIKE NEW!!!! It is also great to find that the playing of the record is as STUNNING as the visual!!!! It plays with NO pops, NO skips, barely ANY clicks AT ALL, NO jumps, NO sticks, barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some slight background sound in places (as is normal and expected on this LP)!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB withNO groovewear and NO distortion either!!!! The record must grade Very Good++++ if not better!!!! BRILLIANT RECORD!!!! Believe me this record is NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The record also comes in a Black 'poly-lined' Inner sleeve which is in SUPERB condition!!!! THE ULTRA RARE 2 'COLOUR' POSTERS (& 2 STICKERS!) ARE ALL IN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB CONDITION - AND CLEARLY HAVENT EVER LEFT THE COVER!!!! The 'Garrod & Lofthouse' Gatefold Cover is in absolutely BRILLIANT condition!!!! The cover has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear, NO rips, NO tears, only VERY slight corner wear (NOT through the colour!), NO sticker marks, barely ANY rubbing AT ALL, NO sticker tears, NO rips, NO tears, only a VERY few light creases(cover isVERYflat looking indeed!), NO splits, only some very VERY minor evidence of 'tipping in' to the corner tips, NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! The opening edge is beautifully straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!! Even theinside of the cover is in SUPERB condition with NO yellowing, barely ANY rubbing AT ALL, NO ringwear,NO grubbyness, and NO writing!!!! The cover MUST grade Very Good++++ if not better!!!! BRILLIANT COVER!!!! THIS LPIS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS (ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION - AND WITH THIS ULTRA RARE VARIATION!) - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!

MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little. Until this year - I had kept them exactly the same since I joined ebay back in 2002. However this years price increases have been so obscene, that I have had no choice but to increase my postage charges for the first time ever. However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!
