"Avoid it... on the Warner or Rhino releases if you are deterred by the archival, analog sound quality that restricts the dynamic range of Williams' composition"

Um... The universe is analog! "Analog sound quality" (as Christian puts it) has nothing to do with restricting the dynamics of a recording. That comes down to who was in charge of recording and how well (or poorly) the mics were placed.

I couldn't help but post that because saying that analog restricts the dynamic range of a recording is like saying everything in the world is out of whack... except for the finite amount of data that's encoded digitally.
