Can anyone comment of the quality of this re-release please? I'm thinking about buying it, but I wasn't too happy with the vinyl version of 'Tubular Bells III' I got recently.

Does anybody know if this reissue includes an insert with the original Arthur C. Clarke liner notes? Or do the photos accompanying this page pretty much show all that one gets with the package?

This is the single record I would take if I had to choose from my collection, if castaway on a desert island.. and the ability to play this music...
