    CD has a dr of like 5-6. Haven't played the LP but will tonight. Not expecting much improvement sonically, just being a completest and supporting the format. Always depressing when new rock releases are crushed like this when you can hear that it was very nicely recorded.

    I have a copy of this album that I bought sometime in the 80's. I haven't listened to it in a while (at least 10 yrs.) and I've made a few upgrades to the system in that time. So I played that copy this past week. First thing that I noticed was that it didn't sound as good as I remembered; the studio tracks just weren't as clear and open as I recalled. (Heck, my hearing isn't that bad. :D )

    When I was playing the third LP in the set I noticed something weird...I could feel the table in front me vibrating, and you could see that the liquid I had in the glass on the table was rippling. I wasn't playing it loud, just normal listening volume. After a quick inspection I found the driver in the lower rear of the right speaker (Vandersteen 3A Sig) was flapping like crazy. WTH? I checked the record, looking for a warp. It wasn't perfectly flat, but it seemed playable enough. Halfway through side six I started to feel the vibration again, and then I started to hear the driver bottoming out, making a clanking noise. Yikes!

    Whelp, I decided that this album needed to be replaced, and since it was part of the recent NY remaster series, I had no trouble finding a copy...

    Ah...much better. :cool:
