    I've got all the regular USA cds of the Tull stuff. Some are really not bad (Heavy Horses) and some are horrible (Broadsword and the Beast, A Passion Play). When MFSL did A Passion Play, I sat there and listened all the way through twice... I WAS SOOOOO HAPPY!

    In most every case my LPs sound better than the CDs, and I don't even have the first pressings on most.

    My Island "Stand Up" sounds fantastic, except that it is scratched up. When I bought it used, I was only really interested in the pop up cover. If I ever see a near mint Island copy, I will pay pretty much whatever it takes to get it.

    Overall, the acoustic guitar and flute sound much more lifelike on the vinyl.

    Hope this helps,

    I agree with Tony. I am fortunate to have UK original pink label Island pressings of This Was and Stand Up, as well as the UK Chrysalis Aqualung. The first time I put on Stand Up my jaw dropped - absolutely amazing acoustics. I've never heard the MFSL CD. I do like the MFSL vinyl of Aqualung though - the "smile" EQ seems to fit on this one.

    John Buchanan I'm just a headphone kind of fellow. Mysphere 3.2.

    MFSL never did a CD of this one AFAIK. The DCC version is wonderful and sound like my memory of the Island/Chrysalis UK version of Aqualung minus the surface noise that seemed to be present in every copy I tried.
    Stand Up on Island was an amazing version - lots of hiss that doesn't appear on the new CD - did I hear Peter Mew mentioned....

    The best vinyl version of "Stand Up" I've heard is from the UK Millenium series done about 5 years ago. Just amazing sonics.
