That's a problem with the entire series. They used lots of vinyl sources--in a condition that most collectors would call "VG"--when they could've easily used other CD sources or taken the time to obtain master tape copies.

"Supersonic" sounds like it was recorded off an old record. They could have used the same version off the CD and got a clean recording.
