This was Pink Floyd’s debut album. It would also be the last Pink Floyd album in which Syd Barrett would appear. He was replaced by David Gilmour on guitar.
This disc was pressed in the U.K., and as with all the Pink Floyd’s picture discs, is very hard to locate.
Artist: Spyro Gyra
Album: Morning Dance
Release Date: 1979
Catalog number:Infinity INF 9004
This was Spyro Gyra’s second album and their first release for Infinity Records. It was a commercial success for the “Jazz/Jazz-Pop” group and giving birth to the Top 40 single “Morning Dance”.
This picture disc was released “Promotionally Only” and contained a dedication to Wherehouse Records from MCA Records on the flip side.
Using close up photography, you can view how the stylus(needle) rides in the groove of the phonograph record.
Album: Operation Mindcrime

Catalog number: Charly Records LIKP 002
Album:Ride The Lightning
Release Date: 1989
Catalog number: Vertigo 838 140-3
This was the second release for Metallica. Like the green and blue version of “Ride the Lightning”, the red version contains the same songs. This record gives a catalog number similar to Vertigo Records. But between the substandard graphics, milky appearance, and the lack of typical information found on Metallica releases, the authorization for this disc is highly questionable.
