I just compared the following two CD versions: Per Un Amico - RCA ND 71784 (Premiata Forneria Marconi - Per Un Amico ) Per Un Amico - Crime KICP 2718 (King Records) from 1993 / 1995 (Premiata Forneria Marconi - Per Un Amico ) PS: The Crime CD has the same mastering as the earlier Japanese K32Y 2156 CD from 1988. Prior discussion showed a preference for the RCA CD because the Crime CD was described as being "Super bright and weird EQ all over them": Best sounding PFM CDs? After listening to both of them, my impression is that the RCA CD was treated with noise reduction, there is zero tape hiss during the intros and outros. The Crime CD is certainly brighter, maybe more than necessary, but it sounds a lot more natural and less processed. I can provide samples if there is any interest.
