Has anyone compared the old reissues they put out a few years ago to this? Is this actually a new mastering job or that same one from Grundman back then? Is there a difference?

The concert is not really all that great. The demos are pretty interesting and insightful and a nice addition. The album itself is excellent but you have to consider that the masters were not so wonderful to begin with. I have listened to this album since it was new on vinyl, cassette and CD. I have a 1973 UK pressing to compare this with. This new version is a major improvement over my 1973, but all the glitches are still there, its just sonically cleaner with a better EQ. Gone is most of the fuzzy / scratchy sounding distortion. It is much more enjoyable to listen to. Voodoo Chile on Side A is worth the price of admission. It sounds better than ever and really cooks.

I got two sets originally and am returning one because Side A is pressed way off center and the disc with Sides E and F was warped because it was jammed into the gatefold. The one I'm keeping also has Side A off center but not as bad. Everything else is good and flat. Couple of big clicks on the concert but I don't really care because its unlikely I'll ever really listen to it again. The vinyl is also really greasy from heavy mold release agent, but that will cleanup.

Haven't got to the Blu-ray yet. I'll update about that later and on the rest once it goes through the VPI. Is it worth $100 ? Maybe, but I saw it on Amazon for around $61 + tax a few days ago. Lot's of complaints about pressing flaws, but there also some good copies out there, too.

Cheers !

I don't seem to be able to find the CD/Blu-Ray edition for the 50th deluxe. Only the LP version is listed

Does anyone know if the European version is indeed pressed at MPO? I see that the version I have was a QRP press. Purchased at Amazon US.
