Swans ‎– White Light From The Mouth Of Infinity

Notes:
Although originally released in several formats and in both the US and UK in the early 1990's, these recordings remained hard to find in their original form for a long time, due to the lack of timely reissues - they appeared only as part of the basis for the Various Failures 1988-1992 compilation at the end of the decade.

The entire album was however re-issued in 2015 both as part of the White Light From The Mouth Of Infinity / Love Of Life compilation and as a stand alone vinyl release. These versions contain the extra track "Blind" recorded during the same sessions, but omitted from the original release.

Any comments regarding the sound quality of this repress? Original copies are now prohibitive and would like to know if this is a good alternative.
ps - positive regarding this reissue is that it now includes the song Blind.

Also came with Aaron Neville 45RPM Warm Your Heart Disc 1 in the second sleeve instead of record 2 for White Light From The Mouth of Infinity.
The strangest part is that the Arron Neville record is from a remastered Original Recordings Group release ORG-141 from 2013.

Even weirder, I recall when getting the CD in 1991 that a copy I had also had an Aaron Neville recording mismatch. Must be a bar code issue?

Weird, the tracklist provided with the lyric sheet says that You Know Nothing is track 9 when it's actually track 3.
