So I bought it..and soon after the album that followed. I still play it more often than most other DC recordings since it doesn't Vini doesn't sing on it (while I've been a long time fan, I do still cringe at some of his vocal work). As to the "remastering"...they really missed the mark. The remastered CD's, while including some hard to find material, are of poorer sound quality than the original CD… Read more
