The original American pressing was not very good and had anemic bass. The UK was better. I've never heard what I would call a great pressing of this fabulous LP. Open to suggestions.

That is very disheartening to hear. I have a number of digital masters of Aqualung transferred from various sources, and they all sound horrifically bad. Anemic is the right word. I was hoping that getting a good LP pressing would remedy that problem. Alas, I was wrong.
Such a shame, because the music on that record is just, as you said, fabulous!
Try the recent 're-mastered by Steven Wilson' LP which is available on Amazon. It deals with a lot of the problems of the original mix, and cleans up the sound.
