While I don't have the ability to play Vinyl. I must say that this is one of my favorite reissues of the CTI 40th Anniversary series on CD. The sonic improvements over the previous CD issue amount to an entirely different listening experience. So if you don't have the ability to play Vinyl, the Masterworks CD is worth it.
