    My copy includes an insert with Japanese commentary and details. Subsequent Masada albums didn't include these Japanese inserts but a slip of paper apologising for their absence.

      I never buy CD because poor sound quality exept some SACD. I prefer by far the sound of vinyl.
      Since this one exist only on CD, I decided to buy the 3 albums (Beit, Alef and Gimel) and.... What a surprise ! These recording and pressing are exceptional ! Sound is detailed, with excellent relief, High end never tiring, Low end deep and clear, no compression. Perfectly balanced, all instruments at the right place. The drums spanked me hard and the bass line is round and hot. It's just fantastic ! To my ears, this is an audiophile pressing.
