I agree. I've resisted buying the Ryko version for a few years now, and I'm looking forward to completing my collection!

Stop? It's for this kind of stuff that I keep supporting ZFT (for the Project/Objects, I didn't like at all stuff like the Birthday Bundles and the way they treat coverbands, but we're getting off topic)

I'll be glad to have this, since my LP and vinyl rip suffer from insufferable hiss/click/pop syndrome.

I'm wondering if someone who only knows the '95 remaster will think there is something horribly wrong with the original mix Big smile
