Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon EMI Tape Box Folio - Side One

Post by Keith Jordan »

Collectors with some spare cash knocking about will be very pleased to learn that Abbey Road Studios Store has a wonderful and limited edition item available from 5th March 2021 (pre-orders taken). Best get in there quick before they are all gone! This does appear to be a box with no recording in.
