Check out the Polar Norway pressing from 1977. It knocks everything else out. Better than any remaster, sounds gorgeous. Think it was mastered and pressed by EMI Scandinavia. Never heard any other version at this level of quality, so much depth and solid bass that provides a lot of warmth to the production. It's quite rare these days and is hard to distinguish from the Swedish pressing. The only real difference is that there is no Mono/Stereo logo on the label. The packaging however is identical unless mine is in the wrong sleeve!

Any idea what versions had were distributed by EMI in what countries or if versions distributed by EMI are re-releases?
