Another comparison here (cd, sacd, vinyl, cassette, master tape copy): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=almdxI76DOw

I like the high frequencies on the cassette, although it is a bit much. And the master copy has a nice overall warmth to it. The only one that sounds not so good is the CD. It's a little too harsh in the upper mids, where the SACD sounds significantly better. But the SACD sounds too compressed. And other than the bit of crackling, I think I like the 1973 vinyl best. It just sounds the most dynamic and has the best frequency balance to my ears.
