This is arguably the best way of hearing this album. This edition was mastered flat from the original USA mastertapes (see booklet) and has been CSG decoded by me.

CSG was a technique used in the late 60s to make stereo recordings mono-compatible. It puts one of the stereo channels out of phase and as a result blurries the stereo image. It was printed on the mixdown mastertapes of 7 of 11 tracks that can be found in folder CD1. Read more about the process here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haeco-CSG 

Despite the fact that CSG can easily be undone in digital audio workstation, only one official edition of WOF thus far was actually decoded and that one used an inferior source. So here it is. I know I'm being a bit cheecky here for using an offical source but it is the best one IMO and it needs the CSG decoding badly. Cheers to the guy who did the original rips and scans.
