5.0 out of 5 stars This is great but do not buy again if you have the original, 14 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Yellow Submarine Songtrack (Audio CD)
First of all I fell into the trap thinking this has been remastered, to be fair my fault as the 1999 master was excellent anyway why would they need to do it again, On receiving the CD it clearly say's on the back remastered 1999. If you do not have the original this is great, and its interesting too hear what can be done with rebalancing things. All the vocals are central, and songs like yellow Submarine, you hear things and lines like "Life is a breeze" for the first time as they are not crushed in the original primitive mix. Its almost allowing the Beatles music to get space to breath. Now of cause I am aware that many people will feel that no one should fiddle with the Beatles music, but as many have said time and time again. the stereo versions were secondary to the MONO mixes and even John Lennon stated " I don't understand why they put the vocals on one channel and the music on another". On this collection, this has been resolved and tracks Like Nowhere Man and when I'm sixty four benefit so much. Eleanor Rigby is even more beautiful and the songs from Sgt pepper are very punchy and fresh. I know many were against re mixing in this way but I for one love the sound, at one point it was even considered, that the Beatles albums would all be issued in Mono, stereo and re balanced stereo in a 3 CD set this never happened. This version is to accompany the film and is not meant to replace the original yellow submarine, the four exclusive songs all sound great especially Hey Bull dog which just rock.

Couldn't agree more. I'd love to see the Beatles albums, certainly up to Pepper at least, remixed as happened here. It transforms the recordings and brings new life to them. A joy to the ears. Thought I was the only one who thought this!

No your not, mind you arguments get very heated as many believe you must never tamper with the original masters, I do agree things sound not be altered to change the songs however, when none of the Beatles were interested in the stereo mixes, I can't see the problem of making a true stereo mix rather like they have done with pet sounds by the beach boys
