Going for the One

Hello, I have a question about "Going for the One" releases. I bought an CD Atlantic 19106-2 (7567-81510-2) edition of CD at Amazon for $5.77 with shipping (and the disc was in excellent condition) so I shouldn't complain :) But anyway I am having two problems with it:

1) What release is that? I googled around and found that this CD was released in 1989 and is not even remastered! There is no information about this release's origin anywhere in the booklet or on the disc. Next, I discovered that when most people talk about the "older" release of "Going for the One", they mean CD Atlantic 7567-82670-2 (1994) - digitally remastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound. Hardly anyone ever mentions my CD Atlantic 19106-2 (7567-81510-2). Is it so rare?

2) The sound quality on this CD is truly horrible. Anderson's voice is so muffled and doesn't stand out. At times it gets so loud though that it blots out the rest of the sound, and this is not good at all! At least I am sure it shouldn't be this way. That's why I want to purchase another edition of "Going for the One". I heard that the 1994 remastered edition, the one I referred to in the previous paragraph doesn't also sound very well but I hope it's still much better than this 1989 monstrous piece of sound ugliness. Can anybody comment on the sound quality of the new CD Elektra 73793 (2003 remaster) edition? I suspect it's the best sounding "Going for the One" CD you can buy.
