Rare Pink Floyd
RarePinkFloyd.com is a Website devoted exclusively information about rare and unusual albums, records, tapes, compact discs and memorabilia by Pink Floyd.
Pink Floyd was and remains one of the most popular and influential bands of the rock era. Their albums, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall are among the biggest selling albums of all time. In fact, The Dark Side of the Moon, often simply abbreviated as DSOTM, stayed on the Billboard Top 200 album charts for more than fifteen years, and is often used by fans as an audio companion to the film, The Wizard of Oz! The Wall is the biggest selling double album of all time, and the band’s first album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is still regarded as a classic example of an album in the psychedelic/garage vein.
Founding member Syd Barrett remains one of rock music’s most enigmatic and fascinating characters. After recording for more than thirty five years, Pink Floyd‘s discography includes vinyl album, CD and single releases from more than sixty countries. Many of these releases differ greatly from the more common versions of those records found in the United States or in Great Britain, and include picture discs, mono and quadraphonic albums, unusual cover art, limited edition colored vinyl releases, and unusual unauthorized items. In addition, record companies worldwide have issued numerous singles, albums and compact discs intended only for promotional or radio station use. These have quickly become valuable collector’s items.
Our goal here at RarePinkFloyd.com is to offer photos and information about hard to find items by one of the world’s most collectible bands. We think you will be pleased with our selection, which we hope will change frequently.
In addition to information about the band, we will also information about members of Pink Floyd – guitarist David Gilmour, singer/songwriter Syd Barrett, bassist Roger Waters, keyboardist Richard Wright and drummer Nick Mason.
While we no longer sell merchandise directly, we have kept the site online with photos of some of the harder to find items that have been issued worldwide - rare seven inch records, rare twelve inch records, rare tapes, and Japanese releases, colored vinyl releases, picture disc releases and highly unusual promotional-only items.
