The three bonus tracks are nothing to get excited about, not enough to justify dropping $20 on if you own the earlier cd version. However, if you don't own Graceland yet, I would suggest tracking this version down instead of settling for the older one. Graceland is one of the best pop ablums ever recorded. Absolutely beautiful.
