A little disappointed with this one. I use to have the original vinyl version when released in 77 which I adored. Then I bought the Remastered CD 1995 which I really liked and sounded great. I gave that copy away to have this version.

The presentation on this edition is lovely and similar to the original vinyl version. I can't say I am all that impressed with the sound quality though. The sound quality on the first disk is a grade less than on the 1995 Remastered CD version. The second disk, which is really why I bought this edition, is The Serban Ghenea Mixes, which aren't as impressive as I would have expected from this so call 'impresario producer' of music.

There is some subtle vocal variations on each mix, most notably on "You Should Be Dancing", which is nice enough in itself. What has me really disappointed and surprised is that the recordings levels on these mixes are wrong and there is a small amount of distortion in sound. I guess I shouldn't be so surprised, after listening to these mixes it seems obvious to me now that this was just another marketing ploy for music companies to cash in on, and that Serban Ghenea didn't have to do much here to make a fast buck on the back of some of the greatest music ever made. There's no improving on perfection, no matter how people may claim otherwise.
