Pink Floyd's smash hit lp titled "dark side of the moon" harvest shvl 804 release 1973.1st pressing blue triangle label. Matrix information side 1 shvl 804 a-2 3lr side 2 shvl 804 b-2 2pl. Comes with two stickers and one original matte Finnished poster. The first edition stickered gatefold sleeve is made by Garrod and Lofthouse. It is recognised by the blue tinged coloured cover and purple colour round sticker to front. Later copies had black coloured covers and black round sticker to front. I have included a picture of both types of covers. You can clearly see that the original one with sticker is a different colour to the bottom one which identifies it as the rarer first edition. Now for the condition...The record is graded as very good plus. Nice original shine. I have played this lp and the stereophonic sound quality is superb. Labels have a few aging spots under bright light but nice and cleaned with no writing etc. Unfortunately I am missing one of the posters and one of the stickers is on the piramid poster. Should not be that big a problem to find another poster to complete this set. The 1st edition blue tinge gatefold sleeve is graded as very good. A bit of ware to corners but generally a nice solid cover. A chance to get a rare first pressing copy of dark side of the moon with the genuine blue tinge cover as most copies tend to come with the more common black colour cover. Good luck if bidding
