Layla album (most recent reissue)

Has anyone compared the somewhat recent 2 disc Layla release with the 20th anniversary edition from the 90s? Talking CD. Dig the songs, just find the CD hard to listen to.

The older German "Polydor" discs are highly regarded by audiophiles. There's a lot of discussion on the subject at the Hoffman forums if you have time to do some searches there: http://www.stevehoffman.tv/

Remixing can only go so far for something that sounds like it was originally recorded through a duck's butthole.
It can go as far as being a different mix.

The most recent one is a remaster of the original mix. There are things I like about both, but there's definitely a big difference.

I have 4 different versions (original vinyl, 20th anny., single disc remaster, and the newest one). They each have their merits.
