Pink Floyd ‘The Halcyon Albums’ Vinyl Bundle – The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here & The Wall
Save over £20 when you buy these iconic albums together with this vinyl bundle offer!*
The very name Pink Floyd is synonymous with an elastic, echoing, mind-bending sound that evokes the chasms of space. Pink Floyd grounded that limitless sound with exacting explorations of mundane matters of ego, mind, memory, and heart, touching upon madness, alienation, narcissism, and society on their concept albums of the 1970s.
Here, three legendary Pink Floyd albums from that period are presented here as a vinyl bundle offer – The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975) and The Wall (1979).
Pressed on heavyweight 180g vinyl, all three albums have been remastered from the original analogue tapes by James Guthrie (producer and engineer for the band since 1978), Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman.
The Dark Side of the Moon
Pink Floyd recorded The Dark Side of the Moon between May 1972 and January 1973. The band had composed and refined the material while touring the UK, Japan, North America and Europe. Released in March 1973, the album became an instant chart success in the UK and throughout Western Europe, earning an enthusiastic response from critics. The album is one of the most commercially successful rock albums of all time having sold more than 45 million copies to date.
Hipgnosis designed the packaging for the album, which included George Hardie’s iconic refracting prism design on the cover. Thorgerson’s cover features a beam of white light, representing unity, passing through a prism, which represents society. The refracted beam of coloured light symbolises unity diffracted, leaving an absence of unity.

Wish You Were Here
After a tour of the UK performing Dark Side, Pink Floyd returned to the studio in January 1975 and began work on their ninth studio album, Wish You Were Here. Initially, they found it difficult to compose new material; the success of The Dark Side of the Moon had left Pink Floyd physically and emotionally drained. Despite the lack of creative direction, Waters began to visualise a new concept after several weeks.
During 1974, Pink Floyd had sketched out three original compositions and had performed them at a series of concerts in Europe. These compositions became the starting point for a new album whose opening four-note guitar phrase, composed purely by chance by Gilmour, reminded Waters of Barrett. Released in September, it reached No. 1 in both the UK and the US.

The Wall (Double-LP)
Pink Floyd eleventh studio album’s The Wall was released on 30 November 1979. It is a rock opera that explores Pink, a jaded rock star whose eventual self-imposed isolation from society forms a figurative wall. The album was a commercial success, topping the US charts for 15 weeks and reaching No. 3 in the UK. It initially received mixed reviews from critics, many of whom found it overblown and pretentious, but later received accolades as one of the greatest albums of all time and one of the band’s finest works.
The Wall is one of the best-known concept albums. With over 30 million copies sold, it is the second best-selling album in the band’s catalogue (behind The Dark Side of the Moon) and one of the best-selling albums of all time. In 2000, it was voted No. 30 in Colin Larkin’s All Time Top 1000 Albums. In 2003, 2012, and 2020, it was included in Rolling Stone’s lists of the greatest albums of all time.
