    I had this on vinyl 30 years ago, and want to purchase it on CD. It looks as though there are several CD versions that differ from the original studio recording [EDIT: Meaning they aren't musically identical to the tracks on the original LP. Same tune, different version]. From poking around on Discogs, it looks like the "real" CD is Motown 440 064 022-2.

    Can anybody confirm this or otherwise point me in the right direction?

    I have this one in my hand right now, but I don't know what you mean by "Real CD"?

    I don't know if I do either! Some of the CD reviews on Amazon and Amoeba say that their CD had a different version of one cut or another. Some say their CD isn't a studio version at all, but a poor quality live recording. And there is at least one German CD that is $35 bucks.

    And, it looks like there was a re-issue CD with a couple bonus tracks. That would be nice if the basic CD is musically the same as the original vinyl, but not essential.

    I guess I can compare it with a record, but I never thought it was any different from the record.
