Just ordered Sonic Youth's eponymous record in the local store.

Not sure about the 2 other ones, namely Ciccone Youth & Thurston's solo album. I have the originals of both of these and the new version appears to have the same tracklist and a mid-price of 12.5.
So I wonder what will be different about these last 2?

It should basically sound cleaner and fresh, and if it's been supervised by the band then itshould represent the sound that they hoped to achieve.

it basically means if you have the originals don't bother... they were reissued for widespread domestic consumption as they are somewhat rare...

I have yet to get The Whitey Album as well, I'll just order the 3 together once I get the chance. It's nice to see new SY stuff out every few months.

Mastering is basically (and someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) taking the songs after they'll done in the mixing stage, and making sure that all of the songs sound basically the same in 4 stages: A good pair of headphones, a bad pair of headphones, a good pair of speakers, a bad pair of speakers. The room is acoustically "tuned" so that no added bass or treble is put to the music.

The website of FNAC, a big disc seller here in France, notes that Ciccone Youth White(y) Album's is coming with bonus tracks, is it true ?

I picked up all 3 rereleases the day they came out and I've been loving them so much ever since. I keep wondering why Geffen didn't just reissue the EP when they reissued everything else...definitely a classic! And sounds very different than their other stuff.

As for the whitey album...I dont think it has bonus tracks, but I could be wrong.

I have Psychic Hearts and but the copy of the first EP I have is bootlegged with the master dik single on it, plus the orginal songs played backwards, but I swore I saw something about the first EP having extra songs, if that is the case I'll get that and the whitey because I don't have the whitey.

The live tracks sound great in a 'not recorded on very sophisticated equipment kinda way'... which is fine by me.
Sonic Death is one of my all time favourites of theirs.

Yo.
The thing that sucks is that for someone who already has those releases, I'd have to buy the whole thing over again in order to get the bonus tracks. If I come across a lot of money, I'll probably buy the vinyl versions, but until them, I'm not too concerned.
