All X (one of my favorite bands) is better on vinyl.The only exception being the CD tracks I have heard of the demos of the "Fourth of July" stuff,an album ruined by typically bad post-MTV production values of the late 80s.They eventually redeemed themselves with the all-analog,privately pressed "Unclogged",which I snapped up new on vinyl.
As for "Los Angeles",this is best heard on the pre-Warner Slash original pressings.(Although "Wild Gift" was done with a better,deep groove,pressing,by Slash.)To go back to an older thread topic, all the original Elektra Lps,except the aforementioned "Fourth",were issued on superior white label promo copies.None of these can be called common,and I have four of them.
