Mythical Pink Pyramid
We are pleased to be keepers of a mythical release. Very few people have seen it, and we are amazed it came through our doors. Next time you’re in Bridport make sure to come into our shop to request to view from the vault.
In 1972 Pink Floyd toured the then work-in-progress Dark Side of the Moon album for 9 months. On the 27th of February 1973 EMI arranged a press reception for the album to which 250 members of the media were invited. Along with cocktails and food, attendees received the LP, then without the iconic black prism sleeve. Instead, it was presented in a gatefold silver sleeve with a press release. An invite for the premiere was also included which stated the running order of the evening. Not included here is the programme which, on this occasion, has been lost.
The vinyl given out was a 1G pressing, meaning it is 1 of the first 300 ever pressed, making this one of the rarest most sought-after Pink Floyd records around. It is so rare that it’s been rumoured the band members may not own a 1G copy themselves, apart from possibly from Richard Wright who was said to be the only member of Pink Floyd to turn up that night.
