I thought I get this import release (call it the "Rewind" edition) since I've read about this "Super Bit Mapping" technology. Well, nowhere on the cover or on the CD did it mentioned this "SBM" thing. But I compared the sound quality with the CBS CD. I listen carefully and noticed that the Rewind does sound better! So for the sound quality (even though it costs more) the Rewind edition is worth getting. Just be aware that the recording itself is not quite state-of-the-art hi-fi stereo.
One thing you might as well be aware on the Rewind: The orange CD label mentioned "A Rainbow in Curved Air / Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band" besides "TERRY RILEY: In C." A correction needs to be made since there's ONLY the 42-minute track, "In C." If you want the "Rainbow" and "Poppy Nogood," you could get them in a separate CBS CD (If these pieces will someday be on the Rewind edition with SBM, I'd get that, too).
Anyway, if you like Terry's "In C", try to find a copy of his follow-up "A Rainbow in Curved Air". You'll be in for a treat.
