Our the special release CDs that offer you several bonus tracts

Is the sound quality on the special release as good as the regular release that does not have the bonus tracks? Does the bonus tracks make the rest of the CD more compressed?

For music originally released on vinyl the running time is going to be less than can fit on a CD, by quite a lot unless it was a double album. Filling that extra space with a few live versions or tracks that didn't make it onto the original release could help sell the album a second time, though often they're only of curiosity value and end up being skipped after a few listens. It's not the extra tracks that mess up the recording quality but the choices made in making the master but that's a different discussion.
