When it doesn't fit anywhere else

An online search for the Alembic Blaster schematic reveals several schematics that all fall into one of two categories. One employs two capacitors while the other uses three caps. Anyone know the difference? Is one preferable? Knowledge and opinions appreciated.

Thanks,

As long as you're asking, also, sometimes the ones showing 3 caps describe the circuit as "improved." I'd assume this means the original version Jerry used had only 2 but is this correct? Also, I've read that replacing R2 with 27K or even 47k resistor still keeps the sound clean but offers more volume for lead boosts.
