Notes:
Please check carefully the existing vinyl releases before adding new releases to the database to avoid duplicates. There are many slightly different versions of this release, and especially the reissues / reprints with black Columbia labels from late 60's to early 70's are hard to tell apart. Some advice can be found in Pink Floyd Archives website, even though it is not official and can't be referred to as a source. Different coloured vinyl "Columbia" reissues with cat.# SCX 6157 are all unofficial releases.

Great record. Sound quality is as good as it can get from a record this era. Astronomy Domine, Interstellar Overdrive are the highlists however there are a few other gems. For its time it is a great record however I am a more of a fan of the 70's Gilmour/Waters albums, I just had to have this to complete my collection of original release Pink Floyd LPs.

I like the set but my booklet came loose from the cover. Anyone else have their book pop out of it's staples? And it came loose way back soon after I got it in 2007 or 2008. Otherwise it is a nice set.

Further to my comment, my original blue Columbia label first press has the Ernest J Day flip back sleeve. The top right on the reverse of the cover states “SCX 6157 stereo” but at the bottom next to the Columbia EMI labels it states “This mono record has been produced....” etc. The very bottom of the reverse side of the cover (on the flip back) states “6709 TPS Printed and made by Ernest J Day & Co. Ltd., London SX 6157/SCX 6157”. The label on the record states a cat. no. of SX 6157, and the matrix no’s are XAX 3419-2, 3420-1, which is obviously a mono pressing. Is this a hybrid pressing due to a dual format cover but a mono lp?

I have an original first pressing blue Columbia labelled mono disc but in a flip back Ernest J Day stereo sleeve. Does anyone else have this? Was this a pressing plant error?

Mine is almost identical to this version as pictured. But does not have the black edge band on the disc and does not read "Manufactured and distributed by EMI Music Group Australasia." on the disc.

BUT... matrix reads CDP 746384 2 AR .5 EMI SWINDON

I can't find this copy. Does anyone else have this copy?
