I reviewed the album under CD, but, having bought vinyl and CD, I would strongly advise getting the record. The bonus disc is terrific - throaty, soulful versions of 'Home is Where the Hatred is' and 'Winter in America'. In the introduction to the latter, GSH, has a message to the messengers about fitting music and lyrics. Any GSH fan will want these 'live studio versions.' I don't know whether they are available or will be available in other formats, but great to have.
The record is also beautifully designed, with extra photos, nice thick sleeve. I know...these are trivial, consumerist features, but, come on, half the fun of the record is to lovingly caress the sleeve and pour over it, like it was a religious artifact.
See you at the Festival Hall!
