""There will always be "the original is still the greatest" types, who will prefer an original UK EMI/Harvest vinyl pressing, but be prepared to pay for a truly early edition...Mo-Fi's Japanese-pressed half-speed LP was super quiet but EQ'ed to emphasize the frequency extremes, and the small-sounding gold CD is hopelessly outdated sonically. That leaves as contenders for the best available version this SACD reissue and the new vinyl version, mastered by Doug Sax and Kevin Gray at AcousTech from the original stereo mix, plated at RTI and pressed in The Netherlands...Gutherie's ultra-dynamic 5.1-channel mix is the most effective multichannel mix of a record with a two-channel history that I've yet heard.

"Got the new DSOTM LP today. Wow! it¹s really good. Any of you fence sitters should buy it yesterday..."Money" in particular is out of this world, but I can hear improvements in all the tracks. Oh yeah, looks like they trashed the idea of a new cover and used the origianl cover, label, and number of the UK issue even though it¹s a Dutch pressing. Way cool! Not bad for only $25.00 ( Acoustic Sounds)."
