Re: Newbie needs advice on HF cds (which versions to own)
First of all welcome here!
Concerning versions: They aren't that different. I'd give you the advice to buy the ones with the most tracks
As far as I know there aren't too many bonus tracks. So just buy the normal version, maybe some limited editions and if you think you really have to have some missing tracks, then buy them at itunes. I actually don't even have Steel Meets Steel and never felt the need to get it.
And if you're planning to becomea real collector, then you have to buy every version you can get
I hope that helped you a bit.
