    That's fine by me. Hopefully Saucerful gets this treatment too. This is the only way to hear those two records.

    Has anyone seen this up anywhere besides AS?

    Fantastic news. The mono mix is by FAR the best way to hear this album, and the RSD version sounds terrific... based on the hype sticker this looks to be the same mastering

    Been trying to find a reasonably priced RSD copy for a couple years now, this is great news! Available anywhere else yet? I don’t like ordering from AS if possible.

    Not yet but I can't imagine it won't be all over the place.

    A CD reissue would be nice.

    Plenty of the 2007 mono CDs about, if you look

    the mono mix is like hearing a whole different band attaching these songs.

    I know. I already have the 2007 and the 1997 CDs. Just a CD with some improvements would be nice. And maybe some extras too.

    I’ve had several bad experiences with ordering from them and it’s also MUCH MORE expensive due to shipping cost to order from them over another online record store.

    I remember not so long ago when a mono Piper was like the holy grail. Nowadays it's becoming difficult to find a stereo Piper!!! :D
    Well to be honest I'm pretty ok with this as the mono mix is THE way to listen to this album. It would be perfect if the standard edition was the mono mix plus the first 3 singles.

    WOW! I had really given up on this! I got my RSD copy but I'm glad they finally decided to re-release it.

    Finally. They should sell this a twofer with the Mono and Stereo in a nice psychedelic gatefold.

    2007 Mono CD is fantastic. The 1997 one on the other hand is garbage.

    Good. I didn't need the outer thing. Just more stuff to deal with when I want to listen to it.

    The RSD release had the original art.
    It was just put in an envelope with new art, but inside the sleeve was there.

    I'm wonderin why the Columbia logo is not blue in that 2022 edition.

    Yes, interesting they didn’t use the gold label like the RSD version either.
