Item Description

PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING: Please read the entire auction listing, including shipping costs, before writing to ask a question.   OUR GOAL IS CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. In order to meet that goal, we will ALWAYS work with our customers on any concerns that may arise. In the unlikely instance that you feel the need to open a resolution dispute before working with us, you will immediately be blocked from any further chance to acquire the rare music we present each and every week.   Payment is required within seven days. We mail all paid items ONE WEEK after auctions end. Please keep in mind our listings are time consuming in detail and we are often traveling to find these gems, which at times delays the delivery schedule by a day or two. We ALWAYS process and ship every paid order. We have no control over parcels once they are mailed from our local Post Office. Overseas mail to some countries (Italy, Russia, France, in particular) has become very slow. Opening a dispute for slow mail is unacceptable and will result in blocking the bidder. We work hard to provide excellent service as is represented by our 8000 plus positive feedback.   We use a VPI machine and thoroughly clean all records. Each order is carefully packaged by removing the LP from the jacket to avoid seam splits, use of 3 ml plastic cover sleeves over each LP and jacket, cardboard pad inserts, and placed in sturdy record mailers for safe delivery.   We take Customer Service seriously, and want you to be satisfied. Please give us 5 stars in each category through the feedback system, and we will be able to effectively continue to fulfill your passion for rare and collectible music! We have served thousands of satisfied customers - far more than our feedback records indicate - and our aim is to continue to do so.

Not getting any easier to find ... highly in demand with collectors from around the globe
....Heartbeats, laughs, machines and screams. Such are the opening moments of "The Dark Side of the Moon", ushering in a unique musical world where strange sounds, mellow music, bits of biting guitar and ROGER WATERS' cynical observations coexist in a disturbingly natural setting.
"Speak to Me" is an introduction to the album that is an allusion to the rest of the album by combining snippets from each track (The heartbeat from eclipse, the clocks from time, the laugh from brain damage, the mad man from on the run, clare torry's voice from great gig in the sky and the cash register from money). If you loop the album over the heartbeat carries on perfectly in time. This explodes beautifully into some of Gilmours best guitar work which feels like heaven as the short but sweet "Breathe" comes into play (some versions have Speak To Me and Breathe as one track whilst others have them separate). Breathe is similar to Time but good enough not to be too alike to it.
The next track, "On the Run" is very trippy and appropriately titled as the rushing sped up sounds and explosions feel as if you are travelling at high speed and can be a challenging rush for your mind to take in, and great for the stoners. This is very futuristic and some could say it paved the way for techno a decade or two later. Never mind, it's still great stuff. "Time" is the first progressive piece here (although it is technically just a progression from the previous tracks). The classic introduction can confuse and destroy your mind as the rush of "On the Run" leads into an explosion and an alarming array of chiming clocks. This is brilliant stuff. The "Breathe (Reprise) manages to blag on at the end of time and is pretty sweet to see the third verse of the song.
The end of side one see's one of the most powerful and moving instrumentals of the bands career, "The Great Gig in the Sky". Here Clare Torry's improvisated overblown vocals weave in an out of a stunning piano piece by Richard Wright. Pink Floyd have once again shown the best in experimental and emotional music.
Side two kicks off with the most famous floyd song (or is it another brick in the wall?) "Money", which has the classic bassline and the lyrics are a real treat from Roger. He did very well here. Dick Parry's wind solo is the real wonder here as it bridges between the brilliant basslines and Gilmour's guitar solo.
"Us and Them" delivers beautiful piano pieces and gilmours best vocals since Breathe earlier on. This is an epic on the album and another masterpiece that flows gently and progressess superbly. "Any Colour You Like" is just a filler guitar solo and perhaps the worst song on the album but then its not expected to be a masterpiece and it is a rather good (and colourful) guitar solo. "Brain Damage" uses acoustic guitars and refers to "loonies" which is always good to hear. This is a brilliant piece which leads into one of the best outros on any album ever made "Eclipse" which sums up the whole album and shows power in music, words and vocals. An outstanding album that needs no recommendation at all since it entirely speaks for itself.
