God the packaging is just HIDEOUS!!! I can't bring myself to buy any of these "Original Master Recordings" because they ruined the album covers and trust me I do want that audible experience but, sheesh! Who the hell thought this design up?!! And the design itself is so dated looking, like from the 80's, yet these are not. Must have been some old dudes... always the old dudes... RETIRE! Go play GOLF and stop messing with the original aesthetic, image, world that is part of every great album!

I recommend vinyl version too, from original master tapes. High Quality. Recorded by Mo-fi.
