I bought mine from jpc.de and it has similar sides. A on A and A on side B!)))
Maybe i could sell it for a million dollars since years!)))
But sounds very good, no cracks, very dynamic and clean. Ordered 1977 reissue to compare.

Is it me or is this somewhat bleary or low on treble? I wish i had a 74 UK pressing to compare. My reference is my HDCD version (30th anniversary) which sounds fantastic.

For new users, this is my personal advice for the digital version: go for the first edition without barcode, the Jem version. It's the first original mastering, the only one that really show the pathos of this title. The second remaster (Definitive Edition,1989) is very good, but was a bit equalized. Don't buy the 30th Anniversary and don't buy, don't listen, the Wilson remix...it's the worst of all, really. He said some years ago that the original mixing of Red was yet perfect and after....he touched it. It's a bit difficult in these days to find the first pressing in cd, but worth it.

Can't get much better than this, Peckham mastered Crimson. Has so much more presence and clarity than my 1st US press had. The one to get if you love this album.

I haven't heard the first pressing so I can't compare. The only other version I heard of this album is the FLAC version of the 40th anniversary mix which is remastered by Steven Wilson. As far as I'm concerned this is a very good sounding pressing on Vinyl. No Cracks and pops even in the quiet parts of " Providence ". And the album sounds really powerful and brutal as it should. Tho I'm kinda disappointed by the packaging . I mean it's just the cover and that's it . there isn't any gatefold , Lyrics sheet or anything. I guess Robert Fripp doesn't like fun. But if you want Red in your Vinyl collection, This version is good enough.

I would advise people to ditch this edition of "Red" because a) the digital remix on disc 2 sounds like it was recorded to an iPhone and b) the bonus tracks are superfluous -- unless, of course, you want to hear two more minutes of "Providence" or a skeletal version of "Red" without any of the great guitar overdubs. Just buy the original five-track album and you will be happy.

Really great sound from these reissues. My only gripe might be the recessed drums, but since Ive never heard an original to compare with for all I know the recording or mix is just like that. Very probable since they pick up a bit more after the first 2 tracks. But mostly everything else is just as crisp and clear as Id like it all the way through, without being sibilant mind you. Something which few digital records manage these days. Very pleasant to listen to if you like the "pressure" this album has.
Likely the best sounding version after a mint first press which is too hard to obtain to even consider. Especially if you want a quiet passage of Providence which at least my new copy provided. There is surface noise but it stays rather low. Next to no pops either and the few that jumped out of my speakers I suspect were static discharges. Ill do an update once the record is cleaned. I found Starless especially fantastic sounding and probably the worst sounding part being the clapping on One More Red Nightmare, very 1 dimensional compared to the rest, again probably its just mixed that way, although some extra mastering work could have been done there.
With a sort of flimsy jacket of very thin cardboard albeit with nice aesthetic I still think the package quality is just overall outstanding. Cant recommend it enough to anyone getting into King Crimson.

Starless - what can you say about one of the greatest melodies for guitar (or violin, or for any instrument for that matter) of all time - a melody of melancholy and hope all rolled into one. A timeless melody encompassing all human experience. One of the best songs ever written. That's about it.

This is the first edition of the album released in Spain in 1974.
