I did get a few of the new ones, and I do like them overall (and they're easier to get from CD to my iPod than the cassette versions).
The one thing that bothers me a bit is that while I'm listening, I'm nice and relaxed, and then I hear Paul say something like "While you're listening to this tape..." -- and, of course, whether I'm listening to the CD, or on my iPod, it's not a tape - so it kind of pulls me out. This happens a few times on each recording.
I know it may seem silly, and I should probably be able to just ignore it, or substitute "recording" for "tape" in my mind, but so far I've been pulled out every time I hear the word "tape". Also near the end of one where he says something about "long after the tape recorder has been stopped".
My hope is that the more I listen to these recordings, the easier it will be to block out that word... although it seems that the whole point of listening is to not be blocking out what I'm hearing. Well, I'll keep listening and we'll see.
