This version does not date from after 1984 because it is the date written on the price label of my record.

I have a similar pressing however with an inner sleeve similar to other Australian pressing. Also 2A is printed on matrix runout similar to the other runout. All labels match this pressing however.

In addition to 2 vinyl copies, I have the original CD, the remaster CD and this one.
It says High Def 24/96 remastering, which there's no reason dispute, but the CD res is actually normal 16/44 on analysis with a number of recording/ripping platforms.

The official remaster from Island label is of much higher quality than this copy.
This copy is on par with the original CD.
Comparison made using AIFF's on an A&K320 with B&W P9's.

One of my favorite songs of all time is the alternate b-side version of Hiroshima Mon Amour. To my knowledge it can only be found on the 2006 remastered CD. Does it exist anywhere on vinyl -- original or repress?

This is the same release as the LP at the top of the list which also says first 10,000 copies included the 7" single so I'm not sure if it should be listed twice.
