Surface noise, especially between the tracks, ruins this otherwise awesome recording. For my taste, the mastering is perfect.

There is also a cassette: 7138 003 Vertigo, made in Holland 1970!

mine sounds extremly good, real analogue, maybe a question of the setup

Not very impressive sounding really.
The sound is pretty lame with lack of mid range presence and vibrancy.
Seems almost Smiley EQd but no instrument really shines that much.
Its important to note that the cut is quiet although raising the volume only helps so much.
Compared to the Cressida Asylum reissue this pales. Maybe the recording or mix is just that superior on the second album which is also cut a lot hotter.
But even with this playing 50% louder Asylum just sounds much more right with punch and drive in the midrange.

Equipment Used:
Technics SL-1210GR Turntable
Paratrace tipped Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers

A fantastic re—release, regarding first of all the half speed recording and the result of it. Totally recommend. Not to speak about this fantastic production at all.

This was cut at Mayfair on a 12" acetate disc

What a brilliant album this is!!! Melodies just flow effortlessly and singers voice kind of embossed into and onto the music. Not a single note seems to be out of place.
Musically faultless, but not pretentious and pompose as many other examples of the prog movement. That honesty and "from the heart" approach for me puts Cressida on a different level.
One of my favourite records of all time.

One of Vertigo's finest hours, this is. It's progressive rock from Scotland, nothing less, but almost all irritating traits of that genre are carefully avoided. The mellow emotional singing is free from any mannerisms, the compositions are among the most moving in this realm. There is room for everyone in the production and the playing is refined, even restrained, but without sacrificing any of its splendour. Another point in favour: there is great variety of approach, both instrumentally and stilistically, yet the sound is immediately recognizable. Stately striding from one climax to another, this still stands as one of the highlights of early British prog. A record that proves that aspirations do not necessarily become pretensions. Melodically extremely affecting with too many highlights to mention, this comes wholeheartedly recommended.
