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.

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 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.
