If you're a collector - yes.
If you ain't - no.

I just had a funny thought about that Mini Vinyl...
Does it go so far in replicating the original album, that it also includes the edited versions of the songs?

Make a guess... They're as edited as they were on CD issue previously. It's like with AKOM- the extra tracks ARE there although they're not listed on the back cover (replica of a vinyl...). But no- no way we're gonna get full Tie Your Mother Down or BoRhap or WWRY or... Geez, justremembered what a crappy album this is...

I think you slightly misunderstood me, even though you did answer the question. :P

I was actually wondering whether these had the ever shorter versions that were on the original LP, but if they're using the previous cd masters anyway...

Was live magic recorded on digital or analog ?

It would have been just too much effort to re-remaster etc the whole album to include full versions of the songs (even though current technology would currently allow it).

It sounds more like digital than analog.

So was Wembley. BUT IMO guitr sounds TERRIBLY on Wembley whereas it sounds much better at the Knebworth tracks from LIVE MAGIC. Thta's one of the major reasons why I don't like Wembley that much- the flat sound. The bottom sound almost doesn't exist!
