the remastered cd's from uni/a&m are superb. i have the vinyl, but the cd's are just as good.

Jaybo, are you referring to the reissues done in 2000 or the more recent ones with the bonus materials? Some have said the 2000 reissues are as good as the 2008 and I'm not sure I'm really interested in the bonus tracks anyways. Not sure if the 2008 bonus stuff is all on the 2nd disc and the 1st disc is the same original songs only but there's just something that rubs me the wrong way when I listen to a cd of an old album and it's not exactly the same tracks start to finish.
I saw a Tea for the Tillerman, with the bonus tracks the other day. It was 2008 Universal w/ the fancy packaging. It was $29.99. I have the MFSL gold cd, so I held off. My MFSL does sound very good IMO, but I may splurge on the new one. It had some live tracks from the Majicat concert, if I remember. Say what you will about MFSL, but my Teaser and the Firecat sounds awesome on MFSL vinyl.
I was wandering through Best Buy the other night and found an audiophile LP on 180 gram vinyl of Tea for the Tillerman. A really good reissue... good dynamic range, very quiet. What a thrill just to cut the wrapper and open a brand new record. My wife and I sat and played it through - twice! Nothing quite like good vinyl.
