    Amazing compilation in all, but regarding CAD307 CD version/s, try before you buy as one of these CD editions (hopefully just one, and not the entire re/issue series) features a sound dropout at the very beginning of "Mr. Clarinet" (easily comparable to the version released on 4AD's "Nature Mortes - Still Lives" compilation, where the organ sound kicks off without error).
