I had the LP box back in the day, and really loved the amazing book(let) that came with it.

I'm wondering if either of the CD versions has a booklet of similar scope (same number of pages / photos)?  I have the 2xDVD and it has a subset.

If not, which is the better version?  I hear the original has a slightly 'muddier' mix to some ears, but the reissue has some of the intros etc. missing.

The CD I have doesn't have the booklet, but it's an older CD release, from 1990 I think. It was actually my parents' album, and they gave it to me years later. The CD re-release has the booklet.

"It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good."

Thanks for the info, but it looks like your parents may have lost the original booklet; here is a pic of the early release with a booklet:

I'm just curious as to which version has the better booklet as the original LP box had a very comprehensive one.

It's funny that that original 3LP set was less than 90 minutes long! (White Album, for comparison, put 92+ minutes on two albums) I mean, it was for charity and all, so maybe complaining about value for money was kinda beside the point, but still…

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975

I was thinking the same at the time – maybe they felt that putting it in a box required 3 LPs?  Or maybe 'All Thing Must Pass" was an inspiration (though having recently arrived in Oz at the time I had the gatefold version that was released down here).

Funny, the one I have has just the song listings and the credits. No booklet at all. ???

Off Topic but it is a query about a George album just not TCFB:

On the All Things Must Pass 30th anniversary/original CD version, does it contain the poster that was in the original LP?

^ You mean in the little box with the colour photo on now, the 2CD set with bonus tracks?

No poster sad to say – I was hoping it would be there – though there is a reproduction in the booklet.  I was hoping they would have a smaller version like in the White Album CD.

I really miss all the physical stuff from LPs, hence my original question in this post.
