I also have the A2U/B2U pressing with the wide spine. Sounds absolutely great. However, I am thinking of selling it and replacing it with a reissue (I rarely play such an expensive record - trying to keep it pristine, you see). Can anybody suggest a decent-sounding reissue?

I have the Harvest A-2U / B-2U pressing. It is truly amazing. Bass is punchy and tight and the highs are crisp and clean. Super dynamic, the album seems to come alive. If you see it, buy it. You will not be disappointed!

I have a EMI UK pressing. A-2U / B-4U cut. Side A is amazing in terms of bass / trebble response. Guitar intro on track 1 is vibrant and dynamic. So I agree with previous comments on 2U cut...
Side B is very disapointing in comparison, less dynamic and flat.

Anyone have or found one of the mythical promo "Pig" record bins? I'm interested in acquiring one, never seen one for sale. Only seen a couple photos.

Steve Hoffman in 2010 called 2u/2u the best master for this album, and I have to agree. The German recording is also very good, as is the 180 gram remaster in 2016. But this one is very clean, complex, and good depth. If you’re going to just own one, this is the one.

I can't seem to find my release
Barcode: 0 7464-34474-1
Matrix Runout A: (HXPY) AL-34474 -G2G
Matrix Runout B: LB-AP7 BL 34474 G2D
Paper Inner Lyric sleeve

I've found many releases that have all of these details but all different and none of them have -G2G at the end of the matrix runout on Side A. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

on the 8 track version of this there is guitar solo by snowy white at the end of pigs on the wing, to loop the 2 songs together, does anyone know of a vinyl version of this recording?.

It's very hard to track down a copy for me, but there is a variant of the UK first press that is on 160g vinyl, anyone got any info on that? Thanks, Adam.

Is SHVL 815 A-3U (A side) also a variant?

I have two variations of this release; one with a thicker outer sleeve and card inner, one with a thinner outer sleeve and thin paper inner. Both are Made in Gt Britain.
