As far as I know, this is the original one. I have this one myself, and at one time had the reissue with a completely different cover which is less rare. As far as sound, I could never tell the difference. As far as how much it's worth, discogs and ebay are the best places to look. But this offerup listing has been there for awhile, so maybe you can get that one if you want the CD. And if I'm wrong and this is not the true original, let me know. I did notice that some of these were printed in 1995 so those can't be the true originals. Sorry I couldn't shed much light on this but wanted to send you that link in case you wanted to buy it.
