It must be remembered that the very first pressings were always the principal sales tool for selling additional copies! The pressings were better (The VERY best pressings I ever encountered were RCA and Columbia DJ copies) and the early masters were rarely cut from "eq. production masters" which have been the source for many CD reissues.
