This album is a classic, but SHM does not mean ReMastered!

"Amazon needs to be real careful here, or lots of folks are gonna be pissed off. The only difference between SHM and the original is the material that the actual physical CD is made of. That's it. They sound identical, at least on my reference system, to the originals issued from the 80's. If you want the actual Remastered version you're still going to have to pony up for the gold discs produced back in the 90's.
