Comment DR is the same as the 1986 Columbia CK 33453 USA version. Another listing for this version has a higher DR for the first two songs, although the Peak and RMS values for all songs are nearly identical. Not sure why the DR difference as there is only one version under this catalog number. Perhaps WAV format provides a different analysis than FLAC? CD with 24 bits / 192kHz :-o? Upsampling introducing rounding errors and slightly different DR numbers? I don't see any listed here that have higher DR except for those downmixes and the Japan two track that has Pre-emphasis. One the proper EQ has been added the DR drops I didn't think the sample rate had anything to do with it, but just to make sure, I ripped the CD at 16/44.1 and the DR specs are identical. The higher DR .wav entry I was referring to can be found here:
