I have my Sister's pristine Yellow Brick road album she bought in I guess '73, but I picked up this Mofi cd up at a closeout around 1994. I love the sound. Sometimes a few of these old Mofi cds do sound as good or better the original record. They are analogue master tapes on a CD. Another one, is Simon & Garfunkel's Bookends. I was shocked at that one, but it's well respected on music boards. They're asking crazy money for some of them now though.
