Hmmm...My copy is A4 RT/ B3 MD, Gramophone Co rim text, includes patent # inside right panel, but textured outside only...I believe it should be added to this release?

This is not the 1st Pressing!
1st pressings are 1U/1U matrixes.
Jeez this site is average at best!

Very good pressing [Remaster PFRLP6, Pink Floyd Records - 0190295997076]. The sound has clearly gained over my 1977 copy [EMI Electrola 1C 062-04 917 (german pressing)]. The purchase was really worth it, even though my 1977s pressing is in very good condition.

With a pristine UK original copy I feel justified in comparing with the 2016 Grundman reissue
I mostly went back and forth with what I feel are the most revealing tracks, Fearless and San Tropez.
To start with the UK, I observed that it has a lot less deadwax, making more room for dynamics to breathe. But in actuality this difference is very minimal and might not even matter as the reissue is just cut quieter to compensate, which it also can with its quiet vinyl. Finding an equally spotless Harvest is hard even though mine is.
This does however give the UK an edge in some harmonic detail. But speaking of edge it also has a somewhat more harsh sound to it. Grundmans cut is actually smoother and easier listened. By employing better mastering tricks it solves problems like sibilant S's which can be annoying on the original, as well as leaving less possibilities for lesser gear to mistrack closer to the label (IGD). And amazingly very little in terms of quality is lost here by effectively choosing what important aspects to highlight for the listeners pleasure like lessening some bass but still matching it in places where its needed and able to shine.
In the end its a preference choice only and I feel both are winners, just like with WYWH and Animals that Ive also compared so far. But I would give the Reissue the edge here as its cheaper, has less distortion and is only an inch away from the original in terms of soundquality.

Update:
Ive tested both A-1U / B-1U fully textured sleeve and A-4U / B-3U outside textured sleeve pressings and they are near identical in sound. Both will yeild that original bass filled sound with extra bite, be it with more sibilance, compared to the reissue.

Equipment Used:
Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
Custom made HQ Speaker Cables

Hi I have a copy of 'Meddle' SHVL 795 gatefold sleeve but the label on side 2 is from The Third Ear Band's 'Alchemy' L.P. anyone have any idea what it may be worth?

Just found a copy that has a sticker on it, looks like one of the yellow pyramid stickers that came with Dark Side of the Moon. Pretty cool addition to the jacket by my granddad.
