Sometimes CD versions are odd. I like records more than CDs, but even
ignoring my point of view, there are terrible remastered versions even
for later records and much often for CDs.

In Germany even the less supported public library, will lend important
recordings by CD. All Schönberg recordings I own are from a public
libraries CDs.

Anyway, if you e.g. like The Beatles, join a second hand record shop and
buy a record (of good visible quality) without bar code. Don't buy a
record with bar code or a CD.

Not every original or close enough to it mastering is available as CD!

Some CDs for old recordings are disgusting.
