We have both. If the US version is an early pressing and in great condition as you say, buy it. The extra $30 is better spent on other vinyl.

Overhang, Pink Floyd -Obscured by Clouds US Green Harvest label ST-11078 was the first US release back in 1972. Sound is not that bad.
British UK green Harvest, rounded sleeve original SHSP4020
has a more upfront sound is a bit more dynamic than the US But isn't as quiet as the japanese. My personal favorite.
Japanese Odeon Black Label Toshiba EOP80575 is a nicer pressing and a quieter surface. LOL finding one.
A Denmark DE copy would probably also be much like the UK copy but, I can't say first hand with this title as I have not heard one. Their vinyl pressing is generally excellent.
Overhang, fourty for the Odeon is a good price if it is clean and M-. It should have silver lettering on Black background. If you are willing to part with the cash, I think you will find this to be a very nice pressing. Capitol US is obviously on of a zillion later pressings (no way a first) and I would contend that it is worse than the EMI which isn't anything to write home about. Happy hunting.
