The Reference Recordings versions are the only authentic representations of this music.
The later Rykodisc versions were improperly mastered, RR used a customised, non-standard tape recorder so the masters can only be played back correctly on the RR tape machine which Rykodisc did not have access to.
The above is verbatim from a letter from J Tamblyn Henderson, president of Reference Recordings, to The Absolute Sound magazine Issue 59 May/June 1989.
So caveat emptor on the Rykodisc releases.
