The new Red Seal edition is superior to the original Gold Seal. The RS has far greater dynamic range and detail in both the highs and lows than the GS which suffers from an overuse of filtering and noise reduction.

Great performance but the source condition doesn't make it preferable to the 1952 which is incredible with incredible sound.
