Comments:  Well, it's claimed to be a HD Revision Remix and Remasters 2016 release.
I don't have the cd's, so I can't confirm or give more explain about this release.
But it might be more than less what the cover says. 'Strippet'? I'm not sure how much really.
CD 1 is what we all see, the 1975 breaktrough album 'A Night At The Opera'.
