The Asylum archives are a wealth of information.
Aqualung's notoriously weak bass has been talked about many times. There's nothing wrong with a follow-up question, if you have one, but the posts in the link below will give you a lot of information about various pressings of this iconic, but (in my opinion) poorly recorded LP.
I'm posting only because you sounded surprised by Aqualung's bass, which made me believe you hadn't done any reading on the subject.
I hope you find a copy with better bass, and if you do, please let us know!
Thanks for the suggestion. I apologize for not doing proper due diligence and checking previous threads on this topic -- I find it very hard to make heads or tails from the audiosylum's user interface. Any time a do a search, I end up with what looks to me as an alphabet soup of links that I just cannot easily follow.
I suggested it mainly so that you'd likely get more information on the subject. Often I see someone post a question which has been covered many times. They might get two or three replies. But if they did a search, there might be 200 more they're missing out on.
In reading some of the replies in the Auqalung link I posted, it seems I could be doing a lot better than my US Reprise copy (bought new in 1971) too. The answer Eddie T gave you sounds promising. Thanks Eddie!
The Asylum "Find" isn't the greatest, I'll agree. I seem to have the best luck with it when I keep the entry simple. In the case of the link I just posted, I entered "Aqualung bass", and gave you the link.
