    OK, that's a start. How much better? In what way/s better?

    The CDs weren't "loudness wars" casualties, I'm assuming?

    Pulse SQ is easily in the Top Tier of these vinyl re-releases.

    Been discussed. Comparing with 70s pressings some are better or at least as good. I think DSOTM is most disappointing (though still good) and Animals provides a rather different balance. More is quite the best I've heard it. Also take int0 account the early albums can be noisy due to wear or pressing quality. I think it's close with most of them.

    Vinyl had a richer fuller sound to me and the packaging is excellent as well

    What we really need next is "Live At Pompeii", "Is There Anybody Out There" and "Live At Wembley".

    "Echoes" would be cool, yes, but we have the originals around. Mine is in great condition so I'm not sure if I would jump on that one.

    Are they the same as the ones eventually released or something different?

    It might help to give it a wash.
    I've often experiensed new records being dirty and static. I wash the and usually that helps.

    Geez …… remember the days when you could just play an LP straight out of the jacket, at least the majority of the time, with no cleaning required?

    And it sounded fine? FFS.

    The Pulse 4LP set is a must-have, simple as that. A stunning live performance. Also, the vinyl has One of These Days, which is absent on the cd.

    Hopefully the upcoming Later Years set will include a digital version of that track.

    I don't think such a set will happen. Besides, IF it comes out, it will only be on cd, I suspect, like the Early Years box.

    I don't play vinyl anymore but I've been thinking of picking all these reissues up just for the full size album artwork in brand new condition. They look fantastic.

    I played A Collection of Great Dance Songs today, and I noticed that Money was slightly different from the original album version. Are there two versions of that song?

    Why? Weren't they satisfied with the original version?

    'Money' was under the Harvest/Capitol label while the Great Dance Songs compilation was Columbia.
    They just had problems with licencing the original recording, I guess.

    And Gilmour decided to re-record it on his own? Why wasn't the rest of the band involved?

    IIRC, Dick Parry recreated his sax solo for this version.

    Yep....somebody had to do it. The late 70's and early 80's were not a healthy time for Pink Floyd.
