I know the vinyl was mentioned but do we actually know the improvement of sound over the original CD release? The original had a lot of hissing noise and quite low volume.
I don't have the original to compare it to but I'm not detecting any hissing on the new cd, and volume-wise it has high dynamic range - the low parts are low, the loud parts loud. It sounds good.
I wish I had a good reason to buy this album again, if just to compare sound quality. I have three copies already! (I probably tossed my original, it was so "well-loved", so I may be down to just two. I remember getting a replacement plus a signed copy from that Varese event a decade ago...)
