You'd be in the minority preferring the original Woodface CD to the original LP, Finfan. Which pressing? The Aus one isn't as good as the European one, at least in my system. I bought the Aus one recently cos it was cheap and is one of the last LPs to be pressed in an Aus major label plant (indeed, EMI had already closed their plant at the time, so it was cut and pressed at CBS Australia) - more of a curiosity for me. I'll keep it, but it's not the one I listen to.
The Euro LP bests my original (UK) CD by a decent margin - much better separation - it really shows off those harmonies.
