The compilation is digitally mixed, or put in another way; it's strongly segued, hence each side works as one long track.

I agree with the statement that Pink Floyd compilations don't work, but visually this is a must have, futhermore on a 12 inch format! Storm Thorgerson made a fantastic work!
Back in 2009 a great online site sold the vinyl boxset at a ridiculous 13£50... Glad I ordered a copy!!!

in my opinion Pink Floyd compilations don't work. As it is a far better experience to listen to whole albums.

I bought 2 of these LP Box sets. One is still sealed. Figured I'd buy them while still available back in 2002 as, they don't typically re-release these types of PF projects. The mixing and engineering of this compilation is outrageously good , on vinyl anyway. I have not heard the CD or cassette versions to comment on them. Dead quiet, ruler flat virgin 180 gram vinyl pressing times 4. I Don't mind that certain songs are overlooked or that they gently segue together. This particular digital remaster cut to vinyl by Sean Magee at Abbey Road is excellent, even though Bernie Grundman has his name in the deadwax as far as I remember. If the discovery box and later remasters are at least this good on vinyl, I need to buy every album again from first to last. I have good pressings of the individual albums, but most are US copies and there is room for improvement on all of them.

"Run Like Hell" gets passed over in favor of The Happiest Days Of Our Lives, Marooned, Keep Talking, Sorrow, The Fletcher Memorial Home, When The Tigers Broke Free, Learning To Fly, Jugband Blues and High Hopes. I wonder why, especially since Gilmour was very involved in the tracklisting.

There may have been some thought into the choice of songs, their editing, sequencing and running order but little attention was paid to the typography, which is shockingly bad.

It is the worst release ever!!! I really don`t understand why it was made? It is not Greatest Hits even. I love Pink Floyd, I`ve known all their albums, songs. Making any shorts (Echoes!!!), or mixing songs is really horribly on this release. I also don`t understand unchrononical manipulation. EMI please not doing more such "the best of..." with any others musicians, especially with Pink Floyd!!!

I Think this is an Unofficial release, since echoes was only released on cd.
Can anyone Confirm this?
