Green "Harvest labels"
Matt gatefold sleeve with 2 die cut inners.

A re-release of The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets with a new cover. Piper At The Gates Of Dawn was released in 1967 and A Saucerful Of Secrets was released in 1968.

This version features a picture of "W. R Phang's Dental Surgery" (a genuine business) on the top right on the front cover. This version was withdrawn following objections from Dr. Phang due to dentists not being allowed to advertise. A later version came out featuring a picture of a gargling monk.

I've always found it odd that the version of Astronomy Domine here is the live version from Ummagumma and not the original album version with Syd Barrett. Otherwise this is a great way to have stereo pressings of the first two albums, both of which sound way better in their mono mix versions, Piper at The Gates of Dawn in particular. The mono mix of Piper at The Gates of Dawn is simply one of my favorite albums of all time. I've had this compliation, though, for decades as a way to also have the stereo mixes of these first two Pink Floyd albums in my collection.

Can't find my version on Discogs.
It has the Monk sleeve with Cat# on back cover: 1C 172-50 203/04
Rights Society: GEMA
Label Code: LC 1305
German copy right text on labels with 'Made in Germany'

Strange thing are the Matrix / Runout codes. They don't fit to any version on Discogs.
Piper: Matrix / Runout (Runout A Side): YAX-3419//42985-1Y
Piper: Matrix / Runout (Runout B Side): YAX 3420-B//42986-1Y
Secrets: Matrix / Runout (Runout A Side): 062-04190-A//42655-1Y
Secrets: Matrix / Runout (Runout B Side): 062-04190-B//42656-1Y

Should I enter a new version on Discogs?

Somebody who's obviously never listened to piper at the gates edited the notes on several releases saying that the tracks from disc one were all from various compilations and that flaming was never released on an LP before.
I don't have the patience to look through all 100+ versions and check so if you see this mistake, please edit?

A neat collection... although as someone who was looking to obtain a pre-digital LP version of Piper (and Saucer) without paying heavy premiums, I wish I would have known before purchasing that the version of "Astronomy Domine" included here was not the original (and classic) Syd Barrett era version... don't understand why they wouldn't have just included that obviously superior version to maintain the integrity of the original release... Potential seekers be forewarned, although thankfully Lucifer Sam and those thereafter remain intact for all your Syd-era needs.
