Notes

Back cover includes title, credits, and song listing. Catalog numbers in upper right corner. Gold Columbia labels with black and white text.

Remastered in 2017 from the original mono analogue tapes by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman, issued on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl.

Previously available only as 2018 Record Store Day exclusive, this repress was sourced from the very same Optimal Media GmbH stampers whose lacquers were cut by Bernie Grundman.

The new 2022 catalog numbers (PFRLP38, 19439859611) are printed on the hype sticker and the original 2018 numbers (PFRLP26, 19075819911) on the back cover, spine and labels.

Made in The E.U. (printed on the back cover and labels)

The back cover reproduces the look of the “flip backs” from the original flip-back mono, “Piper” sleeves, as originally issued in the UK. Hence, the flip-backs are part of the cover art on this edition as it does not come in an actual flip-back sleeve but, instead, is housed in a sleeve that recreates the look of one through the printing of photographed flip-backs on the edges of the back sleeve.

Really great sound on this thing! Some sibilance is present, and it could probably sound better, however for a cheap, affordable pressing this is nothing to overlook

Be prepared to be FLOORED by this pressing. You’d swear that incarnation of the Floyd was performing the entire album your living room as you’re listening to it.

Just got this. Flat perfect awesome. PF just also sent out a Mono of Saucerful...not the record store day one that I have...but a new one. Guess we are gonna see some mono releases before they finally get around to putting out the completed RW's masterpiece Animals-wonder how many more monos will come out. Looks like there are a few differences with this version. Label is a different color diff one wonders if they are really different sounding.

This will make you the happiest you'll ever be without spending hundreds of dollars on an original, most likely in fair shape. Digital wouldn't have been my first choice either but the cut is quiet and this 2017 remaster sounds clear and punchy. It also cranks pretty well too. No good reason not to get this especially if you prefer the mono mix to the stereo mix. Also the moment it's out of print, that magical "inflation" thing appears.

I'm glad I held off on purchasing the RSD title. This edition may not have all the fancy packaging, but I'm perfectly happy with just a glossy sleeve. While I wish they had done a true flipback cover, that's really my only complaint with this release.

Much like early albums from The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Beatles, etc., I've always preferred the mono mix of an album. I find it tends to be mixed with more aggression and a rawness that the stereo equivalent just seems to lack. This remaster from Bernie Grundman and company is another excellent edition in the Pink Floyd Records reissue campaign. They've done a great job making a phenomenal pressing that is really quite the bang for your buck. While I wish they had cut the record all-analogue instead of using a hi-res digital file, it's still the best option for your common Pink Floyd listener to enjoy the album without shelling out a ton of money on an original.

My Setup:

Pro-Ject 6 Persepx SB Turntable
Hana ML Cartridge
McIntosh MP100 Preamplifier
Klipsch R-820F Speakers

This album in Mono is another beast altogether. Bernie's mastering is top notch. If you want this album, NM original mono or this is the way to go.

Incredible! The pressing is flat, clean, and quiet. The music is beautiful and sounds stellar - clear, excellent separation, and so much more detail than the stereo version - which is all I've known all these years. Syd's voice - front and center, sounds, as it should - magical. Mastered by the masters - Bernie Grundman, Joel Plante, and James Guthrie - from the original tape ("Remastered in 2017 from original mono analogue tapes"). The album is a true masterpiece. Well worth grabbing as this is the closest you'll to an original. Though, I'm unclear if it is true AAA - there is a fair amount of debate and I'm not seeing anything definitive or authoritative to indicate AAA. That said, it's well worth grabbing a copy and hearing it for how it was meant to be heard!
