Consisting of outtakes collected from both the “Wish You Were Here” and “Animals” albums.
The disk is the first time that any of the outtakes have been released in this format. -Original
Wish You Were Here:
Wish You Were Here (Parts 1-9) (Never released this way before)
Welcome To The Machine (Studio demo 1975)
Have A Cigar (Studio demo 1975)
Sheep (Different Studio Version)
Dogs (Different Studio Version)
Pigs (Three Different Ones) (Different Studio Version)

Sounds to me like Animals has been taken from an improved copy of the source used for the earlier 'Extraction Tapes' vinyl release. Sources appear to have been speed corrected. Sound is way better than the vinyl transfers I've heard. All in all, an amazing release. -Beechwoods, March 2nd, 2014.

Review from Collector's Music Review:
Soon to see release is this Pink Floyd disk “From Abbey Road to Britannia Row”. Subtitled ‘The Extraction tapes’ this CD features that rarest of beasts. Unissued Pink Floyd studio outtakes. Remember the fuss that came around the Beatles ‘John Barrett’ tapes or the ‘Revolution’ leak? This could, subjectively, be Pink Floyd’s answer to that.
