I did a little research online and it seems the guy who remastered these discs, Peter Mew, has made a career out of ruining a lot of fine music. (The 2013 remaster of the Stranglers' "Old Testament" box set also sounds like a cheap cassette from the 80s thanks to Mr. Mew.) This may be part of EMI's marketing plan - if you really like the music, you'll keep buying the remasters until someone gets it right. But until they do, save yourself some money and don't buy this or anything else Peter Mew has remastered.
