Pink Floyd Pompeii FT

USA: 1985 (don’t mind the label, it always said the same, just like the old “Duck Records” and Ruthless Rhymes labels). The copy shown here sold at auction last month for a healthy $157.50

Repressing from the original plates of the fairly rare single LP CBM release (matrix: 1036 A/B), a straight copy of the Pompeii movie soundtrack, released ca. 1975 on the King Kong sub-label (using Instant Analysis or dragon paper labels). CBM stopped operating ca. 1977.

To the best of my knowledge this is the only time that the mid 1980’s reissue label Full Tilt re-pressed a CBM title.

That raises a few questions:

  • How did Full Tilt acquire the plates?
  • Where were they in the meantime?
  • Where are the remaining CBM pressing plates?

There might be a story in here somewhere.

Usually, one could expect only $20 – $40+ for this title but this copy was different in that it shows a previously unseen insert:

Definitely not a fan made insert (except for the stickers), I would say. The label isn’t mentioned but this can also be seen on other inserts of the Contraband “umbrella label group” (for example super tracks 1, BEFORE THEIR TIMECinelogue LET IT BE, LIVE IN VANCOUVER CANADA & LIVE In Melbourne, Australia – July 16, 1964, , Paris SPORTS PALAIS, RARE BEATLES, SWEDEN 1963, Cream – ’67 – ’68, CSNY – Reunion Concert – July 25, 1974, Dylan: BLOOD TAKES and SEVENTY DOLLAR ROBBERY, Harrison: chicago 11 30 74 and EXCERPTS FROM THREE MAJOR CONCERTS, etc.).
