I've ordered a copy (to add to the vinyl, CD, remaster, mono etc) ... and I've got my old T-shirt ready for wearing on 01 June

It's taken the record companies a long time to exploit The Beatles work although they'll probably filter all sorts of alternate album versions over the next 50 years or so. Most of this stuff I dare say has been in circulation for many years but yes, I'll be buying it too.
On another note, I never thought this was their best work. Revolver or Abbey road eclipse Pepper for my money.

I consider it a pretty fantastic record, but yeah, Abbey Road or Help! for me. Help! is just fun, and Abbey Road is a perfect mix of their fun-loving side and their more experimental side. All in all, the perfect Beatles record.

Me too.
Most if not all of their albums were close to brilliant but I suppose to have been around immersed in what was happening at the time would probably give the best aspect to judge this album in relation to the others.
I am only old enough to have just caught the buzz from the Abbey Road album. I was particularly fascinated by the whole apple and the half apple on each sides of the vinyl. Strange what grabs you as a child!

Finally got around to listening to the whole thing, and I gotta say it sounds pretty great. Much better than the original. All the instruments are clearer, and I was detecting layers that I had never heard before in the original stereo mix. Right on.
