Listening to the original release of the first YMO album right now. I think I like it better than the American release. Maybe there was some remastering, but it sounds more robust and I like “Tong Poo” without the lyrics.
Yea, only the US version has the lyrics, which I think do add a little something. The mixes are different too. As for robust, I think some of the early live performances of Tong Poo are excellent. Plus, some have a blazing guitar solo in it. Hard to find in on disc though.
