I just bought Freak Out! and Sheik Yerbouti online (used). I've actually heard these albums before, a while back, but I haven't heard them in a long time. Is there anything I should know about these CDs before they arrive?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean.  Do you mean as far as sound quality goes?  I think the Freak Out CD sounds terrific, especially considering its age.  As for Sheik Yerbouti, the CD is inferior to the original LP.  For some reason or another, Frank was toying around digital compression and this CD fell victim to it, as it is lacking a lot of the dynamics of the original LP.
