Editor Comments

Meticulously recreated packaging, along with the monumental success of the original album, puts this title on the list of any collector of Japanese Mini LPs (other than of course those who refuse to have anything to do with Pink Floyd!).

The only way this release could have been topped was to have included the re-mixed 5.1 Hybrid SACD.  But then again perhaps a Quadraphonic mix may be more appropriate.
