OK, hear me out on this one. Somebody on this forum once said they preferred the DE of Red over both the original EG and the 30th since the latter is too dull and the former is too compressed. I know there were also some complaints about one or two of the original EG's being too bright (S&BB in particular). So, my question is this: has anyone who tried the original EG's, DE's and 30ths reached the same conclusion about Red or any other 70s KC albums? I have the DE of Larks and I can't say I'm very impressed (reverb, ugh). But I've always wondered if there was a diamond in the rough here somewhere.
