Notes

1st pressing with picture labels in gatefold sleeve with plastic sticker that adheres to the sleeve, but is not permantly stuck on.

Inner sleeves also feature the "Wall" design with lyrics (graphics by Gerald Scarfe).

The track order on the inners is not the same as featured on the album.

Specific to the first issue sleeve:

Band members are not listed on the inside cover. It only says "Words and Music - Roger Waters. Except..." and "Produced By David Gilmour, Bob Ezrin, Roger Waters". Re-pressings added band member credits and had other minor alterations.

No bar code on the back cover.

The Wall is cream coloured, not true white. The bricks on the front cover are not aligned right to the bottom of the cover on the outside or inside.

There are two 1st pressing sleeve variants:

1. A single sheet of wrap-around cardboard with the seam across the inner top edge of the cover.
2. Two sheets of cardboard, with seams at the top and bottom of the cover. Cardboard is heavy thickness.

There are two 1st pressing lyric inner sleeve variants (Both are on thick card with rounded corners and a nine-inch thumb notch at the top):

1. Sides 2 and 4 have the catalog number of the specific record listed on a single line in the lower right corner.
2. Sides 2 and 4 have the catalog number (SHDW 411), international catalogue number (OC-158 63410), and the UK catalogue number (SHSP 4111) in the lower right corner.

Mastered at The Mastering Lab (Los Angeles, CA, USA).

Recorded at Superbear (Miravel, France), Producers Workshop (Los Angeles, CA, USA) & C.B.S. (New York, NY, USA) between April and November 1979.

Three different catalog numbers, one for the album and one for each disc:

SHDW 411 = album
OC-15863410 SHSP 4111 = disc 1
OC-15863411 SHSP 4112 = disc 2

My UK pressing blows every US pressing and remaster job out of the water. There is a reason good pressings of this record still fetch a decent amount, it's because they are heaps better than anything else that came after them. If you get your hands on a legit UK pressing you will never listen to another pressing again. I sure don't.

What's with the "track order on the inners is not the same as featured on the album" ??

Hi, I need help to identify my copy:
My version is the one without the band members, so I think writing here is the correct release.
But the Matrix / Runout codes are not matching with any of the 7 variations.

Matrix / Runout (Side A): SHSP 4111 A-6U 1 TML-X
Matrix / Runout (Side B): SHSP 4111 B-3U TML-X 3
Matrix / Runout (Side C): SHSP 4112 A-3U GAP TML-X 2
Matrix / Runout (Side D): SHSP 4112 B-2U TML-M GAT 5

So is this the correct release and this is a new variation, or I should search on another release ?

I can't identify my copy.
Side A SHSP 4111 A-4U TMLX
Side B SHSP 4111 B-6U TMLS
Side C SHSP 4112 A-3U X ( can't see other markers)
Side D SHSP 4112 B-3U TMLXX

The inside cover doesn't have the band members listed. However, the cover appears white and not tinged with pink. Track listings on the inner sleeves don't match those on the labels. Any thoughts?

Could someone help me figure out which pressing I have?
I have gone through all of the variations I believe and I can't seem to find the one that matches.
