I found just the opposite to be true; reissues in general seem to lack dynamic range while original recordings seem to have more. I hope I am not confusing the issue with: original versus remastered recordings.

Original vinyl varies just as does the recent decade's modern reissue vinyl with regard to quality of sound and physical condition such as record warping.
There is definitely a sound level which is enjoyed by each listener, but it is subjective and not identical for every member of a listening group.
There are fabulous affordable original records of many more performances than can be found on reissue vinyl.
For example, recently in our household have been listening to opera on original vinyl, even back to the late 1940's - 1950's (with the arrival of stereo). There is thrilling subjective audio quality and musical value in many original vinyl records with sense of excellent dynamic range.
This is on modern equipment where modern CD's also played.
The surfaces of many original vinyl records every bit as quiet as many reissues to which I have listened.
Surface noise is an issue for any era of record for those brought up on CD's. But, vinyl lovers learn to tune out a bit of surface noise if it is musically enjoyable.
