Going by your avatar you are a fan of Alan Parson ...?
When you follow the link to the XX edition there are a couple of low ratings.
The most helpful of these is from a guy who claims to be a certified studio recording engineer.
Acc. to him Alan Parson was not involved in the 30th anniv. edition which seems to be the farthest away from the original.
Here the link to this review:
I never had an original Sony Walkman, only an Aiwa but that had auto reverse !!
