PINK FLOYD - Relics [1971]


Pink Floyd's 1971 compilation Relics is a bit of an odd one. As it says on one of the multiple album covers, "A bizarre collection of antiques & curios".
Compiled of non-album singles, b-sides, rarities and some "best of" cuts from their earlier albums, Relics is a wonderfully solid sampler of Floyd's earlier works for anyone curious to see what they were all about in their early days or the collector seeking out songs only available on this disc.

I love this one, too. I have the black ink on white, with pink band name version on vinyl. It's the cover I like best.

I post the covers that I own.

I used to have the mask cover on cassette. It got the sides reversed. Very weird. The record companies derped quite a bit when they released a lot of Floyd's stuff on cassette.

I use the covers I own for films and books but it's never been an issue with music, so far.

I don't for films...
...I try to find the most interesting artwork I can for each film.

Don't know why it's different here...a glitch in me brain me thinks.

Did you see the same cat twice? :p

Films sometimes have different cuts in different parts of the world so I use the cover of the one I watched to avoid confusion.

It just occurred to me now that the covers I use for film maybe aren't the ones you get in your part of the world. 0_o
