The original UK "The Sun Collection" version LP, 100% produced by Roger Semon, used all and only the available masters with the least amount of "RCA Echo". The US version is a mismosh from several generation sources. The US version is NOT the same version issued in UK.
If ever someone could get through to Semon, an interview about how he did his "The Sun Collection" LP would be interesting reading. I believe Semon accessed the earliest copy masters sent to UK to both HMV and the new "UK" 1957 RCA and/or UK didn't add more echo every generation over the years, like RCA-US did. But then he'd have to comment on the inferior US version, and the crappy "The Complete Sun Sessions" by Rowe, and the only somewhat less crappy "Sunrise" too... so he might not sit for such an interview anyway.
