Interesting since the Chesky is from a later generation tape than the others.

I'm not sure I quite follow. It is reported that the Chesky derives from the original 30ips master; the original LSC was borne from 2nd generation 15ips workparts. Often to me, reissues--while initially-pleasing because of certain qualities listed above--lose in the "boogie factor" category. I don't sense that with the Chesky; the only other 33rpm reissue I humbly feel blows away the original is Alto's Leibowitz Prokofiev 2nd Piano Concerto with the PCO. On 45rpm, a can't decide between the original Merc Sythian Suite/Oranges and the 45rpm with regard to microdynamics, but definitely more hall ambience in the 45--the room pressure in my living room seems to change during quiet lead-in moments before orchestra starts.
