I'm going to buy the CD from the store, alas i has no record player to put vinyl on, but it'd be interesting to compare the two. Are there CD/LP versions on youtube ?
Youtube compression is horrible, plus it's unlikely people would record to a lossless format before uploading (so it'll have gone through two lossy conversions to get there).
I have the 1991 CD of Heaven Born (cover with simple colour photo of the band standing side by side together), which I'm told is nicer than the embiggened re-release with the four framed portraits cover. Obviously I never bothered buying it again to find out. I'm sure that one's still fantastic though, and I might have been misinformed by snobs. I expect the vinyl mix is from the first master, the 1991 CD too, then I don't know - maybe someone smashed it into a limiter on the later rerelease CD version?
