Reply to "Crowded House vinyl: original or reissues?"

I liked Afterglow, although Paul advised that it was less dynamic than the original B-sides were. I don't have them to compare.

I keep thinking about buying the remastered Temple, but I haven't managed to convince myself yet.

Slowpogo - do you have the originals already, or are you trying to decide between buying originals or remasters?

I haven't been paying attention to prices for the originals, have they come down since the reissues happened? My gut feeling is that for the debut and Woodface you would undoubtedly be best served by originals - specifically the US CH and the Euro WF (I also have Aus copies of both - they are not bad, but the other ones are better). Another option for Woodface would be the EMI100 version - haven't heard it, but supposed to be good.

Together Alone - unsure. I'm happy enough with my original, and seeing as they didn't make it a double LP, I wouldn't imagine the new one would help much, but I could be wrong.

As mentioned, Temple is the only one I'm kind of thinking about buying, for the new EQ. If the LPs were more dynamic than the CD remasters, that could end up being quite nice, but nobody has confirmed or denied that yet. See my post in the other thread for more Temple thoughts, if you want.
