3.0 out of 5 stars Been here before, 7 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Foot in the Door: The Best Of Pink Floyd [2011 - Remaster] (Audio CD)
When i saw this was being released I was a bit surprised as, firstly it was only one disc and secondly, nearly every track appears on the far better, echoes collection. This is apparently to make people aware that Pink Floyd's back catalogue has been remastered again.
So my copy arrived, I have to say a good job has been done on the remastering not to loud and it is faithful to the Pink Floyd legacy, however to be honest there is very little difference in sound quality to this set and the previous Echoes best of collection. The tracks are mainly from Dark side and Wish you were here (nothing from meddle,animals or anything before atom heart mother apart from one single See Emily Play) and I personally think any new fan would be better off buying Dark side of the moon and Wish you were here.
The booklet is just four pages no track details words or recording history very sparse,and again an awful paper cardboard sleeve which is very tight and is almost impossible to get the CD out, if EMI or other record companies are going to do this can't they put an inner sleeve in, then it might be a vinyl replica, as since when did records ever get issued without a inner sleeve. This rating I based on the value of this collection, not the music which for me is timeless.

Hi, does it contain another brick in the wall as it was released as the single, or is it the adapted version from the wall album?

In reply to an earlier post on 8 Nov 2011 12:04:41 GMT
Again as with echoes the version of Another Brick in the wall is lifted straight from the album it is not the single version.
