Coltrane’s Sound – can it be defined?

When I was 16 I bought the LP, and over the years it has always been one of mt favourites. A few years ago I bought the CD of "Coltrane's Sound" and it sounds terrible! Dull, wooden, lifeless, like listening to it from the other side of a door. Anybody know if there has been a better issue of the CD? This one is "Made in Germany," I can't find any other data or release dates on it. and there are a couple of "bonus tracks." It might also have been a bad recording to begin with, since it seems to have been recorded in 1960 and only released in 1964.
