Works includes a short studio version of 'Embryo' which is awesome, and even better when played live in '70-'71.
You can definitely tell the difference between the version of Money on TDSotM and ACoGDS - even the solos sound slightly different. It's interesting, but I'd say that's for collectors only. Same with Works. I haven't been able to find a decent copy on vinyl that doesn't look like it was used as a dinner plate, or else I'd pick it up.
That said, I do agree that the live versions of The Embryo from 197o and 1971 are some of the best work they EVER did. Shame that piece didn't end up on a studio album.
