Guns n Roses - Appetite for... remaster or original?

    Had a rummage through my folks loft on the weekend, they've been on to me for ages to sort my junk out so imagine my face when I unearthed some vinyl gems from my yoof, namely Appetite for Destruction, Pearl Jam "10" and Nirvana's Nevermind. How could I have ignored these behemoths for 15 years! , the last time they saw the light of day was atop my older sister's aiwa midi hi-fi, and I was at six-form college fighting off girls with a stick

    Anyway, I've spun them on my grown up system and they sound awesome and all the sweeter with a heady dose of nostalgia. Nirvana and Pearl Jam are in decent nick, but GnR has seen some action and is showing it's wear. Having had a look on ebay there are 2008 remasters available, but I understand that remasters are often compressed and sound shite on vinyl.

    Does anyone have any experience of the remaster versus the original please?

    What to do init?

    I asked the same thing on the Steve Hoffman forums and the general response was that they were both good. I ended up with a mint original as I always prefer the original
