Pink Floyd 2016 reissue or first editions?

Post by Jackangus » 22 Jun 2018 23:16

What sounds best? 2016 reissues or the first editions?
I have quite a few of the 2016 reissues and a couple of first editions. No double ups though.
Nothing to compare it too. I'm thinking about buying some first editions that I already have on 2016 reissue.
Is it worth it? or do the 2016 reissues sounds as good or better?

I'm thinking some of you guys probably have both. Let me know what you think?

A 2016 reissue and an original issue of the same album.

I tend to prefer the original versions, British releases.

I was just reading something about this elsewhere and someone was saying the Wally Traugott masterings of Dark Side Of The Moon are very good as well. The comment was concerning people who always say the early UK pressings are the only ones you really want. Considering how good Wally was at mastering and cutting lacquers in general I would say it would be worth your while to search them out as opposed to shelling out big cash for the UK pressings. They can be prohibitively expensive.
