RE: (TV) Fan Club Release of Tom Verlaine

I'm reluctant to buy it, because the original sounds so good.  I don't
really see how different versions of the same songs would make the album any
better.  Keep in mind, I have NOT heard this new mix.  However, the "sound"
of the original is one of the things I like about that album.  Everything
sounds so clean and precise.
Plus, I've read a few post TV LP interviews with Tom (one was posted back in
February, the other came courtesy of Leo about a month ago), and Verlaine
was talking like he was happy with the mix/album sound.  
A different mix won't hold the key to the question of Yonki Time, nor can
one really improve on songs like The Grip of Love, Souvenir From A Dream,
Last Night, Breakin' In my Heart.  So many classics...


I'm waiting for an Alchemy re-release.  One could certainly stand to lose
those lousy synth riffs that plague songs like Blue and Grey.

Greetings, Television lovers-

So, who has bought the recent re-mixed version of the Tom Verlaine debut 
album?  How is it?  How different is it? Was it worth the money? I'm trying 
to decide whether or not to pull the trigger on this purchase.  I know that 
Tom will benefit from the purchase, and that's a great selling point in 
itself, but I've already bought everything he's ever put out in multiple 
formats, so I'm already a supporter of his art, as are we all.
