I noticed that this and at least one other 1980s reissue do NOT have "JM" in the matrices (initials for engineer John Matousek, who is credited for the much lauded re-cut of WGO in the mid-1980s).Here is one with Matousek's signature: https://www.discogs.com/Marvin-Gaye-Whats-Going-On/release/551638And another Matousek cut, supposedly released in 1987: https://www.discogs.com/Marvin-Gaye-Whats-Going-On/release/6140914If "JM" is absent, then does that mean that it sounds different than the above two? Inferior? Shall I just stick with the reissues with "JM" matrices?
