Pink Floyd Albums

Check out this rare vinyl set by Pink Floyd. To date, this is probably the finest set out there and that’s unfortunate. Thirty years gone and *this* is still the best?

Pink Floyd - The First XI. Rare 1979 French Pathe Marconi vinyl LP box set comprising issues of the first 11 Pink Floyd albums. A very rare 11 LP set, only 1000 released, containing the first 11 Pink Floyd albums, issued exclusively with picture discs of "The Dark Side of the Moon" & "Wish You Were Here", housed in a heavy duty textured box with slide-out compartment, released by Harvest/EMI.

The Pink Floyd Albums in this box are:

1. PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN (Laminated sleeve)
2. A SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS (Laminated sleeve)
3. SOUNDTRACK FROM THE FILM MORE' (laminated sleeve)
4. UMMAGUMMA (Double LP with Laminated sleeve)
6. MEDDLE (fully textured sleeve)
7. RELICS (Textured sleeve)
8. OBSCURED BY CLOUDS (Textured sleeve with rounded corners)
9. THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON (Picture Disc with 2 Posters, 2 Postcards & Sticker)
10. WISH YOU WERE HERE (Still Sealed w/ Black shrink & sticker)
11. ANIMALS (with Lyric inner sleeve)

The LP's are mostly French pressings (Darkside... is German) on either the blue Columbia label or '70s Green Harvest label. Each LP has its own individual picture sleeve.

The albums are housed in an Italian made, black felt box with silver prism and band name text on both the back and front. The top portion of the box forms a lid which slips off to reveal the albums inside.
