Oh, by the Way is a compilation box set by Pink Floyd[4] released on 10 December 2007, by EMI Records in the United Kingdom and the following day in the United States through Capitol Records.[5] The box set includes all fourteen of their standard studio albums, packaged as mini-vinyl replicas.[6] In addition to the albums, and their extras, the set comes with a specially designed 40th Anniversary poster by Storm Thorgerson, featuring 40 Pink Floyd images.[7] The title is a reference to a line in the song "Have a Cigar": "Oh by the way, which one's Pink?" The box cover consists of a concept similar to that of Ummagumma—one side of the box shows a picture of a room with various objects scattered about inside it, with pictures of the main band members (Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright) on the walls, whilst the other side shows the same room in different lighting, with the objects and pictures of band members rearranged. Supposed to be limited to 10,000 sets.
