I own the original and the 2011 CD as well as this vinyl.
This is essentially the 2011 CD digital remaster released on vinyl in 2016. Just like the 2011 CD studio albums were digital remasters released on vinyl in 2015, it's not a new remaster. It's cheaper to buy the 2011 CD, which sounds the same.

As a general rule, the B2B issues are usually woeful. However, this is absolutely outstanding, as is the GHV2 edition. Highly recommended.

Have to agree with the positive comments here. This pressing is outstanding. I haven’t heard so much detail in these songs. Sit back and enjoy......

Superb quality release. HUGE improvement in sound over my 1981 release, will now be putting it up for sale. Don't hesitate in buying this. Mine was flat and dead silent no surface noise issues. The people here moaning are the ones who own the 1981 release and don't want to shell out for this Reissue. It should have been released over 2LP's originally but they took the cheap option. Highly recommended!

I bought this copy with a little reservation due the comments about masterization and quality.
Guys, this copy is a kick a$$ and is even or better than the original one. I understand the original nostalgia some stuff give us, but nothing like good sound to our ears. 4 song for side, nah is not an issue. lovely edition!!

My copy sounds very good indeed. It helps having the tracks spread across four sides as it means it can be cut at a higher volume. No complaints about the pressing quality, but I don’t like the card inners; it’s hard to remove the discs without touching the playing surface.

My copy is very good.
The sound is far better than the remastered cd released a couple of years ago which was a ''sibillant'' mastering.
This one is full bodied, like it should have been for the cd i think.
My complaint is that there was a lot of dust, which is a shame at this price and for this monument !
Few clicks and pops, very few, but seems to be due to statics..... Sometime they disappear.
Anyway , it should be possible to sell copies without any of these as i bought LPs of Gilmour live in Pompei and they are absolutely noise free.

Lot of clicks and pop on quieter passages even after cleaning.

Looks like crap. why 2 vinals spread across it. Doesnt make sence. Stick to the original release
