I own both a strong vg+ UK first press and the 200gm reissue and believe me they're not that far apart. The 16 quid reissue is my go to, so for the casual fan save yourself a bundle and get the reissue play it to death and enjoy. Life's too short !

can someone help me identify my version. it is ILPS - 9111 on pink island labels (not textured) but I cant find a corresponding matrix.
I have the following matrix runouts which appear to be from different variants
a side - ILPS 9111 A▽2 1 2 2 8 or perhaps 1223 as its not stamped very well
b side - ILPS 9111 B//4 1 1 2

Does the Variant 1-matrix indicate the "very first" pressing, or is it just a pressing among the others? I'm just wondering since I have this one!

Well, this album is very unique. I really like it. Wouldn’t be my top 10, maybe top 20. I really like the flutes on I talk to the Wind, and the vocals on 21st century schizoid man sound like vocals on a Black Sabbath record. I have become kind of obsessing on this record ever since I found it a few days ago. Ive probably listened to the whole thing like 5 times! It’s great!

Beautiful record . But the German pressing is missing the soft part at the very beginning of side 1 ,bit curious although... isn't it ?

I can confirm that the original pink label island pressing with the 'i' on it sounds better than ANY subsequent pressings.
I guess they just don't make them like they used to. I'm only 39 by the way,I borrowed this from my mates dad and just kind of never returned it.i know,shame on me.
When I first heard this at age 16 I was truly blown away.that was 1995 so I can only imagine what it sounded like in 1969!!!
