I must agree with sardine's Jan. 27 comment. The pressing from Holland has a greater presence because it is a quieter pressing. Both the UK and Dutch pressings were made from lacquers mastered at the Decca/UK studio. But, the matrix, mothers and stampers were made in their respective countries. So, that may be a clue as to the greater presence.

I have a copy of the England and Holland pressings and find the Dutch pressing has more of a presence, depth and larger sound stage than the British pressing. Not only with this release, but the other Decca Headline series releases too. This observation has been collaborated with other listeners I have talk to over the decades.
