    I don't even have that album, @mhardy6647 Do you know which CD (remastered, not, etc?) would be a reasonable purchase? (i.e. I'm not buying a gold plated signed special edition.) Thanks.

    I have"only" an CD version (and, of course, the original LP) so, no, I can't help you. It sounds good to me; very spare production,though.

    On this subject -- I got very tired of Sultans of Swing (it was malignantly overplayed on AOR in the day), but I love the rest of the album. Well, I am not too crazy about In the Gallery, but Down to the Waterline, Water of Love and Wild West End are simply superb, IMO. Moody, atmospheric -- almost cinematic -- songs.
