Rare / Unusual New Zealand Pressing Of The Pink Floyd Masterpiece On Vinyl! Gatefold Cover & Label Numbers Are Standard NZ, But The Matrices Indicate This Is A Quadraphonic Edition! Go Figure…
Catalogue Number On Gatefold Cover: SHVL 804
Catalogue Number On Labels: SHVL 804
Matrices – Engraved On Run Out: SHVL 804 A SQ QUAD May ’81 / SHVL 804 B SQ QUAD May ’81
It sounds like the Quad mix, so most likely what happened is EMI NZ accidentally used the Quad plates initially in 1981, when intending to issue the standard version. Doesn’t appear that many got pressed, as I have only found one other like this in my many years of record collecting.
Condition – Vinyl: EXCELLENT! Looks to have had very little play in 41 years! Very light surface marks do not affect play.
Condition – Cover: EXCELLENT! Minor wear, a few creases (mainly on spine). Cover and labels are very clean.
Widely acknowledged as one of the greatest British rock albums of all time, ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ remains a truly extraordinary recording, notching up sales in excess of a staggering 50 million worldwide!
