I have been reading that Vinyl Lovers are all from CD or digital transfers.

i haven't opened it yet. its a touch of class that vinyl lovers put this out in a replica of the original limited 10 inch two-fer. As for the master, most vinyl re-issues are coming from the most recently created vault material, and more often than not, its a digital source....record's still cool though.
The original 10" is not all that uncommon, and can usually be had for a reasonable price - I have a copy. I find the original 12" US A&M issue to be on par with the 10" version sonically; not too much difference between them. We saw Joe Jackson a few months back in Northampton MA - it was a great show!!
BTW, lots of mediocre reports on the 'Vinyl Lovers' reissues floating around; good surfaces but bad transfer/mastering. Like many reissues, I'd avoid them like the plague. Good listening,
