#431 - Pink Floyd Estimate: $400+

Very rare program for a Pink Floyd concert at New York's Carnegie Hall on May 1, 1972, 22 pages, 8.25 x 11, with interior pages featuring an image of the band under text promoting two Carnegie Hall performances on the evenings of May 1 and 2, 1972, as presented by Ron Delsener during the venue's 80th anniversary season. Included with the program is the exceedingly rare tri-fold program insert entitled: "Eclipse (A Piece for Assorted Lunatics)." The interior of the insert features lyrics for seven untitled songs, a band summary by Richard Cromelin, a discography, and a schedule for Pink Floyd's 1972 spring tour of the United States. In very good to fine condition, with wrinkling to the program from dampstaining to the bottom of the program; the insert is in fine condition.

'Eclipse' was the temporary working title for Pink Floyd's eighth studio album The Dark Side of the Moon. The band opted for 'Eclipse' after learning that British blues rockers Medicine Head had chosen Dark Side of the Moon as the title for their second studio album, but when Medicine Head's sophomore release floundered, Pink Floyd went back to their original preference, 'Dark Side of the Moon: A Piece for Assorted Lunatics.' Although without song titles, the lyrics found within the insert match exactly to those of the songs found on their eventual 1973 masterwork. These 'Eclipse' inserts are rarely encountered and are highly coveted as they represent the only time Pink Floyd played at the historic Carnegie Hall.
