Item Description


Part of an extensive collection of high quality lightly or UNPLAYED demonstration copies, test presses and rarities. Many copies may never have been seen before and most likely will never be seen again!
All listings will run to the end, no offers please, postage cost will reflect the value of the item but will be as low as I can make it and will include insurance.
All singles and albums will be cleaned on the latest Okki Nokki machine.
Superb NM copy of this very rare Pink Floyd test press LP.
This is an incredibly important LP - this is one of the first copies of this iconic album ever to be pressed in any form. The matrix numbers are stamped SHVL 814  A1 and SHVL 814 B1. The side two matrix was never commercially released as B1 - indeed the earliest matrix number released was B3 with only the A side carrying the A1 stamp.
Both sides have the 1 mothers and G stampers at 9 and 3 o'clock respectively.
Comes in plain white sleeve.
These are very rare copies and to date, I believe, according to the most comprehensive Pink Floyd website available,  "PINKFLOYDARCHIVES" the known test presses were issued on 2 discs with the B sides consisting of only a test tone. I would imagine very few exist especially in this Stunning condition. Has been in storage for 40 years!!
GRADING
VINYL - NM - Pretty much unmarked, stunning "like new" sheen. Probably 1 or 2 plays only (Including mine!)

Absolutely pristine and incredibly rare copy.
