A question about those 94 East tracks...

So according to Princevault Symbolic Beginning/The Legends Collection features the 'Original 1978 version before overdubs' of Just Another Sucker and some other tracks. Having just compared them to those on my One Man Jam cd they sound the EXACT same, no? Can anyone enlighten me as to what differences I'm to be listening out for?

Excellent? "Better Than you Think" turns me on. Hopefully we're talking about the same CD. If not it's still cool.

Excellent? Far from. But yes, Better Than You Think and JAS have their moments. Still not sure what the differences are what Princevault mentions however... I'm starting to think it's a typo and that the overdubbed versions are only found on the original Minneapolis Genius cd from the 80s

Some songs have been released in their original versions, some never have. Princevault made a mistake here. In that case you can trust your ears because the pre-overdubs songs sound totally different from the 1986 remakes. You can check my online discography for details about individual songs until Pvault correct their entries.

Thanks databank, I thought my ears weren't deceiving me!
