A pretty decent reissue. This is a tough one....only the MFSL cd is the obvious choice prior to this cut. On vinyl, the original UK vinyl had an airy sound but lacked a bit of bottom end. This reissue has quite a lot of detail, but adds a touch to the lower frequencies and I feel I prefer this to the original UK. This cut should be the same as the 2008 reissue, as I believe this has just been repressed in the EU.
