Lot 7010

Animals album signed on the front cover in pink paint pen by Roger Waters, and in blue felt tip by Richard Wright, David Gilmour, and Nick Mason. In fine condition, with light scuffing, and a few small areas of paper loss along the spine. The record is included. Loosely based on George Orwell's political fable Animal Farm, Pink Floyd's tenth studio album, Animals, was released in early 1977 to positive, if not inconsistent, reviews, with many a critic both applauding and critiquing the album's conceptual framework and shift in musical style. A highly displayable and uncommon Pink Floyd album signed by all four musicians. John Brennan recalled of Pink Floyd: “The chase started in the 1980s, when I got Waters; then Gilmour on his solo tour; then more on the reunion tour (sans Water). John noted, “Roger Waters lived in NYC on and off; he was very accessible. He was generally a friendly person anyway.” “My complete-signed Pink Floyd is a big deal because David Gilmour is the most rare signature, having been so reclusive and not really signing since the 90s (next rare would be the late Richard Wright).” In-band fights were always tough on the autograph seeker looking to complete band signatures. “One time when Gilmour and Waters were fighting, Waters ripped up an autograph that Gilmour had already signed for a buddy of mine.” Brennan noted wistfully, “It’s been almost my whole career getting Pink Floyd completed, because there was no real reunion with all of them. It was just hardcore collecting, one by one, in all different spots.”

Estimate: $3000-$5000
