Please note I do not mean to rate the record, which is a masterpiece, but the reissue.
I used to own the original edition, but had to give it away for personal reasons, so I have decided to buy this 2005 reissue. The three bonus tracks are great indeed, and the four extra page of the booklet with notes and and excerpts from an interview to Bruce are nice.
Unfortunately, the beautiful lyrics have been crammed into four pages, making them harder to read, and the wonderful pictures of Blake's paintings have been removed.
Music is what comes first, but in these days, I want a good package from a cd, especially if it is a rerelease. Sad but true, I was happier with the original version, and I would not have bought it if I had known it in advance. So, nothing to say about Bruce's best album, but I warn you all to choose well before buying this version.
