The tracks differ from the 2015 & 2017 vinyl re-issues: "Buona Sarah" is 40 seconds longer, "Chocolate Elvis" 22 seconds longer, "Worksong" is 40 seconds shorter. The last track "Bonus Miles" was replaced with "Listen My Friend" (which is a slightly different edit of "Bonus Miles" coming from the same sample source). All the CD releases by now featured "Listen My Friend", too.

Can anybody compare this release to the 2015/2017 reissues? Have the tracks changed, were they remixed/remastered?

And does anybody know the source of the samples for "Bonus Miles"?

crackle on C2 of my copy. and a couple pops at the end of D1.....disappointing.

i have to say, after not listening to this album for years, that this release seems to have grown even better with time. initially would have given it 4 stars but compelled to give it 5 now.

also i think if you've ever wanted this on vinyl you should get it now, but don't know how many were pressed so don't know how long it will be around.

and as far as Guill's remark: i'd rather have 'listen my friend' than 'bonus miles' cause bonus miles wasn't part of the original release which was cd only.

and what's with omitting the other cd tracks? its not like there's not enough room for them here.
