For the UK Release (and several others)



...and for the US release. Either way, you can't go wrong.

A great taster to the delights contained therein. Even the song title works perfectly and yes I prefer Isn't Anything to Loveless any day of the week. Not that I haven't mentioned it before!

Say no more regarding Metal.

Still holds up as a great Dance tune.

Ditto.

Not just a great opening track but one the greatest songs ever to come out of this country.

Opening your album with probably your greatest ever song at 18 mins long is a huge gamble but it works and then some.

**** the Beatles, this is when British music changed forever.

Yes! I can't believe I didn't think of that one. Such a great opener, it always feels like someone slowly turning up the heat to me.

I gained huge respect for Electronic music when I heard this.

If I was a boxer or MMA fighter this would definitely be my entry music. Edited to get that double bass kick in of course!

I bet Only Shallow was a nice introduction when Loveless came out.
What about NIN's Hyperpower? It's amazing, you think the album's gonna be a masterpiece then..

That's for the real and now worldwide official version. Like the Hendrix album I mentioned a couple of posts back, the first US edition was with a different track order. In The 60's Tower Records was the name of a sub-division of Capitol, and they decided to play a Meet the Beatles on this legendary album. Thankfully, they left Saucerfull and More alone.

First, the good news, at least this was the opener for the US edition.



Now, the ultra bad. The original opener, the original version of Astronomy Domine, was whacked off the American versions of the album all together for a long time, both in it's Tower release and even the US edition of A Nice Pair which substituted the original for the Ummagumma live version. For years, Stateside fans had to rely on a good Import bin for the full version of the album.

The odd thing was that Tower had something of a major interest in See Emily Play, which was released I think about THREE times as a single, two as a regular release in '67 and, going from my memory after reading the Pink Floyd Archives - please correct if wrong, one DJ Promo only release in 1968, just when Syd was out of the band.

I don't know how many Wilco fans are here, but I realized last night that they tend to start their albums off pretty well.
