To help the original does not have a booklet. However you will know you have an original as it is made of double weight cardboard with two openings in the sleeve. The new issue is sealed on the front flap with a single opening. The poster is also double weight paper on the original. The cover is a lighter shade of blue overall, whilst the poster is a darker shade to the cover. The original also comes with a white paper plastic lined inner bag. The over all dimensions of the original cover is 12mm (1/2") bigger than the new release and it was never issued sealed or with any stickers. The original is probably 140gm vinyl vs the new 180gm vinyl. The original has an circular white EMI logo with Music from EMI in the bottom right corner. Both bar code references are the same, but the original bar code last digit is on the outside of the code. The new version has the last digit on the inside of the code. First and last digits to the bar code are smaller font on the original. The original sounds much smoother than the new version, but both sound fantastic with zero rumble in the vinyl cut.
This reissue is pressed using the same metalwork as the original edition. If you look in the matrix, you can see it scratched out so it should sound the same ????
Not sure what edition you are referring to as the 'original', but I had a first edition which was definitely more than 140g, it was at least 180g, maybe 200g, and the cover was larger than the usual LPs (it was of the size of ORG's 45 rpm releases, you could not fit it in a standard protective sleeve). Sound-wise, it was a very big step up the 2018 release (which I have, so I can tell the difference). BTW I sold my copy and the buyer claimed that it was missing a leaflet to reduce the price (it had a poster with a leaflet printed on the back, so if you are selling it make sure you check that info with the buyer). - Anyway I miss my 2006 copy and will probably buy it again some day.
What about a pic of the booklet? I can't see any booklet but a poster... Can anybody help?
A true collector must have the original!!!
A true collector with a heap of cash in the bank :)
