For those (like me) who aren't able to buy directly from TowerRecords:

For some countries (I'm in the US) it is possible to buy from Tower Records web-site using World Shopping service. For me it appears on the screen as an option. There is an extra service charge for it, however.

I usually order my Tower Records discs through Buyee and it goes smoothly in most cases. You can also download their "Add to Buyee" extension. You can then place items in your Buyee cart directly from the Tower Records website.

I have used CD Japan to order SACDs from the major labels (i.e. Universal, Sony or Warner) and I found the service very good. But I haven't tried their proxy service yet. I know they have recently streamlined it.

(I'm in Canada.)

Compared to the BD/download (remastered 2013), this new transfer by UK ClassicSound strips off the somewhat bass enhanced (blown-up) sound of the 2013 remaster. The current 2021 remaster actually sounds more direct (close to the original tapes?) with no further fiddling. It looks like they've put in an effort in restoration/refurbishment of the tapes prior to digitisation.
