For CD, I believe someone already mentioned Dusty Groove. They
absolutely rule. The Brazilian issues are supposedly nice, but I have
not heard them. I have a Japanese CD that sounds good too.
For vinyl, both of Gal's awesome late 60s albums were re-pressed in
Brazil in the 80s by the original label (Philips) and pop up on eBay a
lot, for not that much money.
Actually, if you look hard, you can be rewarded with cheap originals,
if you're so inclined. I just got the LP in question, a quite nice
one, for about ten bucks, along with the one after that, "Gal" for not
much more, and that one used to go for big coin, probably 'cause all
the crate diggers wanted the "Tuareg" track... so be vigilant on eBay
if you want to get it on vinyl, go to Dusty Groove
(www.dustygroove.com) for the CDs.
