Hi, the copy I bought in the seventies when I was young has an Italian cover, 3C 062-04550, a German label, SHZE 297, Rights Society: BIEM, a German matrix number on side A, and an UK matrix number on side B, Matrix / Runout, Side A: SHZE 297 A//14349-4-Y, Side B: SHVL 781 B-2G. Has anyone heard about something like this? Thank you

I have a copy that is like the 1st US issue in every respect but has the title in the grass on the front cover. Matrix/runout says
Side A. SKAO-1-382-A-3; Side A. SKAO-2-382-A-3 (the “AO” on both sides looks like it was written over “ST”(?)). Gatefold, sky is blotchy, stero written on label (Harvest). Has anyone heard of this?

Love this album. One of their best, if not my fave. Don't understand the haters. Whack it on and close your eyes and pretend it's the seventies. Just wished they had put out a few more around this time.

One has a copy here, German release, no LC on the label. 1 C 062-04 550
Matrix is almost covered by label.
Plain white inner, denoting N 20/75

will do more research, if so, add to the db.

Hi ! I just got a 1970 UK A2G B2G copy but these matrix do not appear in the 2nd UK press. Does anybody have an idea if it is well a 2nd UK press ? It has the EMI box but A2G is sometimes listed as a 1st UK press ?

Despite that many say this is the best sounding pressing, I was somewhat unimpressed with my (A-1G/B-1G) version. In a head to head play test on the title track with my SMAS 382 Canadian 1st pressing, the Canadian sounds clearer, less muddied, and crisper throughout.

I need some help, my version has the matrix SHVL 781 A-8-1-2 and SHVL 781 3-7-1-1. And is"signed" by the cutter "HTM". Any clues?

You can hear Pink Floyd are progressing but there are ideas emerging on this album that are realised much better on Dark Side, Wish You Were Here and Animals. I enjoy the symphonic sounds of Atom Heart Mother and Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast but the folky rock songs they are punctuated by aren't as strong. This is one to listen to after a long, strange night when the sun is coming up, you need to get this is you like Floyd.

One of my favorite Floyd albums just for the sheer insanity of it. I initially hated it but it became a grower, this is one of those albums that could have only been made in 1970.
