This LP has "Pink Rim" vinyl labels.

- "℗ 1970 Island Records Ltd." credited on both sides of label.

As printed on the Side 2 vinyl label, a duration for Track Bc is given (10:55), but there are no times listed for the sub-tracks within 'The Battle of Glass Tears'.

        I listened to this while looking cat #s up on discogs. No expectations going in - it's certainly not a toe tapper - but an interesting mix of medieval and jazz. Cool album.

          Most would be pleased with the 87' Half Speed Master. It's not heavy weight vinyl, but it sounds great!

            Coming from the 2012 reissue as my basis I notice clear pros and cons with the UK original Pink Rim.
            One of the more striking differences between them that favors the originals are the very exquisite strings. I usually avoid pretentious terms but here it really is fitting to say that they sound more organic and meaty compared to the flat and bare bone ones on the reissue. Strings are often hard to point to as a differentiation because they are so simple and short lived but here it is the case with some extra reverb and subtle touch of detail they bring.
            Dynamics are also somewhat extended in a few places but most aspects are a case to case basis. I believe the reissue also uses remixing variants which grant somewhat of a different sound. Most notably I think the vocals here are a con. They are probably similar in detail, but what makes it hard to tell is how recessed they often are on the Pink Rim. This is something I heavily favor the reissue for on tracks like Prince Rupert Awakes, one of my favorites none the less. Its just more engaging with the presence of the vocals. Although one trade off was probably the grunt and bass of the synths there. The UK really tightens up and shakes your seat while the reissue is more tame and balanced.
            Its been enjoyable to point out some key differences and in the end I feel like both weigh in at about equal. They simply bring different preferences forth even while the original has a few clear winning aspects like the strings and punchier dynamic spots. I just hope that the recessed vocals are not a trend as its what I look to fix on my reissue of Islands.

                i have a red label canadian pressing that doesn't seem to be in this list.
                runout sd 8278 A (with a "w").
                hard card cover, no inner.
                i assume it should go as 1970 press and should it be a 1st as other atlantic red labels.
                thanks
