I don't know. Ask a linguist.

I used to have a copy (it was a gift); IMHO, outside of the cover art, this album is the only not-necessary-to-own item in the Floyd's overall collection. The sound quality isn't horrible and the selection is OK, but aside the minor tweaks and alterations, it's a money-making ploy. It was a decent album for what I paid for it, though...

Perhaps as a good as a 45 minute greatest hits Pink Floyd album could be. Not great, but still this edit of Shine On is better than the one in Echoes. At least it makes more sense (a more compact regular pop-oriented version of the song) than that other botchered one that is neither here nor there.

I sooo wanna burn this right now! :mad:

Seriously I'm not kidding, just 6 songs in total (my my have compilation standards improved since then) with one of them being a rehash of Money that sounds too identical to it's predecessor (a proper 80's version would've been interesting) and an "edit" (aka raped of its beauty and charms) of SOYCD that makes me want puke with disgust!

Compilations (with the rare exception of Echoes) should NEVER cross into Floyd territory at all!

It was around 1988 and I was in a bar in Cherbourg, France (hic)....they had a juke box and this was the only Floyd CD they had.....at the time I hadn't heard anything from the Animals album and put my Francs in and selected Sheep.....I asked the barman to crank it up! (In drunken English).....he didn't....I then sat down and for the first time I listened to Sheep.

In retrospect I think it's an album that no one from the record company downwards had much interest in. I am sure I read somewhere it was released as a contractual obligation.....brings back nice memories though.

So...I've got a mint copy on disc. Slip cover and all. Is this out of print, too? Will this re-issued? What about that 2011 Remaster of Is There Anybody Out There? that's included in The Wall Immersion? I'd like to replace my current 2000 copy of it since a newer issue is out there...I just don't want to fork out $100+ to do so.

...Really? I'd assume so, as with all of EMI's Floyd releases, as the Floyd are no longer with them.

Where do you go to find out if such releases like this are OOP?

Try retail sites like amazon or music sites like RYM or discogs.

That explains everything
