The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (40th Anniversary Edition) - I just got my copy! Yeah, I know I'm tardy but better late than never. I give this package my THUMBS UP!

The restoration of the sound is complete and fantastic. The Engineers let the compression alone it seems. The full dynamic range is there. One can hear the nuances very well. It's a joy.

This package also sports the Fart Enjoy booklet. It's actually pretty cool and one can see Syd Barrett's amazing lyrical skills in the making.

The third disc is the real treat here. Again, there are the definitive versions of the singles along with the French EP Mix of Interstellar Overdrive. We then get unreleased versions of Apples and Oranges, Matilda Mother & Interstellar Overdrive. Matilda Mother & Interstellar Overdrive are completely different versions! Syd would wipe the Mandrax and Bryll Cream out of his face and play completely different versions! This is why we must get everything that they have out!

This package is quality all of the way. It’s a must for every Pink Floyd fan. The best part is that it’s available on Amazon for around fifteen bucks! Search: Piper at the Gates of Dawn 3 disc set.

yep, i have it too. the sound quality is amazing. I've already discovered sounds in the album I had not noticed at all before.

I hope Saucerful of Secrets gets the same treatment!
