    Pertaining to Discogs version 5726381 - Caveat Emptor: Even though this is the pressing with the supposedly corrected Disc 3 (original pressing had only one channel), there may be mastering errors on Disc 3 of this pressing. I bought two copies of this from different sellers and both had glitches on the last two tracks which my ripping software reported as having digital errors. I ended up buying the later reissue from 2006 with improved packaging and that copy played and ripped perfectly for all five discs.
