Side note to all of this - liner notes. The EH AYE has the lyrics and an essay by Dave Marsh, which doesn't amount to much more than a blowing of the principles and waxing about how culturally significant the album is/was. The 1993 disc, on the other hand, actually has detailed liners both for the album as a whole and for each song. Tons of quotes from Hendrix, Chandler, Mitchell, Redding, etc. I'm sure there are a few errors here and there, but still a heck of a lot more info.
Plus the new discs clearly have an Eddie Kramer bias. The EH AYE lists Kramer as "Engineer" and then lists the other two people below as "Additional engineering" or something. The 1993 disc puts all 3 on the same line, with Kramer last. Also funny in the '93 disc is a quote from Chas Chandler basically saying "Eddie Kramer got a lot of the credit, but he really didn't do anything!"
"I know because it is impossible for a tape to hold the compression levels of these treble boosted MFSL's like Something/Anything. The metal particulate on the tape would shatter and all you'd hear is distortion if even that." - VD
