Having the US and UK first pressings makes it impossible not to compare the two.
To be brief the difference is not huge by any means, but there seems to be a better presence to the US.
Instruments are more in the room, tighter, and resolve more in the soundstage.
Although thats mostly a figure of speech as these recordings are extremely quiet, recessed and not in the room to begin with.
These small differences are also most likely just derived from a one generation younger master tape used for the US cut and you really have to listen closely to notice it, if there even is one as I doubt my own testing at times. Or its perhaps from a slightly lower EQ for the UK as performances seem slightly more muffled, but I dont think so as bass seems in favor of the US still.
But in general this is whats to be expected from all Riverside US vs UK and EU pressings, and just vinyl pressings in general.

Update:
It should also be mentioned that for those who are looking for a better sounding pressing might be out of luck still as the tapes for this album are long lost which may also be why its seen such a drought of reissues with the lack of good sourcing. A needledrop from and old mother is apparently whats been used for many reissues, probably including the OJC ones.
Perhaps a tape dub could be found and someone lile Kevin Gray could set out to do it justice but it may well be the case that it remains sonically deprived with the US original as your best option.
