Impossible to think of without Let There Be More Light! That is a radical reworking. Maybe there was a bridge between TPATGOD and ASOS, and maybe it would include the different versions of "Have You Got It Yet?" even. But there hasn't been.
But it was beautiful seeing this album back in the charts!

And with regards Wolfpack's observation about White Noise, not only is that my favourite album ever, it was stated in the 1969 album they were massively inspired by A Saucerful Of Secrets.
Honestly I'v never been a massive fan of Let There Be More Light, the intro is nice but the song as a whole feels like its playing to the bands space rock image in quite a clichéd way they otherwise avoided. Remember A Day also has a really nice mysterious intro which I think could work well for the album as a whole.

Really though I spose you could argue the bands biggest drive was just to get the album out ASAP to prove they were still a viable prospect so waiting a few months might not have been an option.
