Any Colour You Like – The Dark Side Of The Moon On Vinyl is the result of Stefano Tarquini's lifelong quest and gathers together the 700 currently known variations of Pink Floyd’s masterpiece on record. They are all there, from the first March 1973 UK edition with solid blue prism labels, to the most obscure pressings from Nicaragua and Mozambique and everything in between.
Each country has its entry with all known releases – test pressings, promotional copies, stock copies and mispressings – clearly arranged in chronological order with all necessary specifications, and complemented by a thousand images of labels and packaging details. The book deliberately refrains from a valuation of the various pressings as nothing is more subjective and volatile than the value of records.
Author Stefano Tarquini, Mr Pinky as he is lovingly known, has spent a major part of his life collecting records by Pink Floyd. His eye for detail and knowledge of the band’s official output on vinyl since 1967 makes him a grateful source of information for fellow collectors and countless publications in Italy and all over the world. He is the founder of the Italian collectors club The Lunatics and has curated various online resources dedicated to the band including the Mr Pinky Discography.
