Why is there no mention on Discogs of the infinite loop at the end of the record on the UK versions? Had to google that info to find out it was only on UK editions... or is it????

Isn't this version same as this: https://www.discogs.com/The-Beatles-Sgt-Peppers-Lonely-Hearts-Club-Band/release/499497
I don't see any difference except for the different stampers

For me, it isn't the best Beatles album. It does have some cool tracks but overall, it fails in comparison to masterpieces such as Revolver, Rubber Soul and the White Album. Sgt. Peppers' isn't really as musically innovative as everyone makes it out to be, the really innovation by the Beatles is the final track on Revolver named 'Tomorrow Never Knows'. If you've never heard it, it's their true masterpiece in innovation in my opinion. Another reason that Sgt. Peppers falls kind of flat for me is that the beginning two tracks (Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, With A Little Help From My Friends) set the album up like a concept album but that just totally disappears and pops up at the end of the album. But, even disregarding that fact, there are only a few enjoyable songs for me on this album which are 'Within You Without You', 'Lovely Rita' and 'A Day In The Life'. Sometimes I like 'Good Morning, Good Morning' but for the most part, as a whole it's meh for me. I respect it's success as The Beatles were creative geniuses that started out making love songs and grew to making mature and more creative pieces but enjoy all of their work with only small exceptions. This album just happens to be one of them.

I'm in Tokyo and thought it'd be nice to buy the Japanese 2x vinyl which I have done at a very inflated 7,800 yen. This is the official Japanese release ( they had imported copies too). However, just inspecting the discs , they say made in the EU ! So I payed twice the price for the obi and the Japanese translation sheet . Not impressed.
