Not getting a lot of votes, and I suspect very few people have both.

I first heard the ECM recording, years ago.  I now own the Nonesuch, but I could not begin to compare them.  The Nonesuch I do enjoy.

I have only the ECM recording, which I like a great deal.  But this is a good reminder to get the other two.  I think it's one of Reich's best--a piece worth having in multiple versions.
