    It’s tough for me to decide. I think the answer is to have both versions. Don’t get me wrong, this is an excellent reissue. But the remaster just sounds...better...than Crass did when they first came out. I may prefer a more lo-fi Crass. Both are great tho. I say get all the Crass you can before the New World Order erases them from history.

      Have to agree they used a quality pressing plant for the "As it was in the beginning" reissues. Fantastic.

        This was an amazing sounding record to start with but the 2019 version is unreal good!
        Quality of sound, pressing, sleeves.
        There is a lot of love in the making of this reissue and it shows
