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

Stuart, I think the value will return once  more of these reissues get into the hands of true fans and availability decreases

I’m looking for TA on vinyl in the States and the prices are still pretty steep for the original release. It’s the only album of original material that I don’t have on vinyl right now.  

As for Slowpogo’s original question, I don’t have both the originals and reissues on vinyl.  I will say that I like the original vinyl more than the original CDs on TOLM and CH.  Bigger soundstage, more texture heard on Neil’s vocals, and slightly more dynamics especially on songs like When You Come and Hole in the River.  I found it hard to compare the Woodface vinyl reissue with the original release CD.  I will say that Neil’s vocals are more upfront in the mix on the reissue than the cd.  But that’s the mix and probably not the media. 

Back to TA, I’ve heard mixed reviews on all vinyl versions.  Opinions on TA, original, reissue and all releases in between?
