I won't see the booklet because I won't buy this. I am going through withdrawls, but I have finally stopped trying to buy EVERYTHING! I'm gonna be 63 and it is time to back off. Do I really need 500 versions of the banana album? :lol:

Speaking of which, I wonder why discogs doesn't seem to list the HMV release. I know it's just the Polydor label version, but it's definitely a different 'release'.

David. If you don't post it to Discogs, I will. But are you sure? It might be hard to spot if it's just a Polydor pressing. What year? Is it from mid-eighties?

The new pressing says this. Who knows? Might be a new remaster? It's also pressed by gz, which would put me off – just for their paper inners.

50th Anniversary Version
Newly-Remastered from Original Tapes


Of course, the 2012 edition also says 'Newly-Remastered from Original Tapes'

I can't see it on the album page. According to eil.com, it's from 1988 ( http://eil.com/shop/moreinfo.asp?catalogid=536782 ) , which sounds right - it was a few years old when I bought it in the early 90s. I would add it myself, but I don't have it nearby.

By the way, is it just me or does EIL seem to be SKY HIGH on their prices? :P

The 50th anniversary issue has a pictured card inner sleeve. It has been remastered by Kevin Reeves

I could only add it based on the page you sent. I'd use that photo you posted.

The prices on EIL are always ridiculous. Some industry-led plot to make prices go up as much as possible. One suspects.

Kevin Reeves did the 2012 remaster. Any indication it is a re-remaster by Kevin Reeves?
