The latest release is a major improvement over the previous Harry Smith Archives release. I did an ABC comparison of the Film No. 3 in these two releases and the Film No. 3 in the Treasures IV (Avant Garde). The treasures version was the best, but the new HSA looked OK in comparison. For me this a major upgrade, and I'm quite happy with it.
