Well that was back then - AND now we finally have a new stereo mix, where you definitely can tell that all possible effort was put into as well - and by no other that George Martin's son Giles Martin. The result: couldn't be better if you ask me - just absolutely great!
I only have one little "complaint" and that is the final mastering (not done by Martin) - well, is sounds great and all that, but a little less compression would had been nice for my taste... High volume shouldn't be the goal, it is very easy instead, just to turn up the volume knob on your stereo equipment. Less compression mean more dynamics. Luckily it seems as this trend of high volume mastering is on its way out again.
But I can still highly recommend this new mix - absolutely great.
The music - well what can be said other than great timeless music - absolutely one of a kind - I love the variety of the songs, but even so it still feels like a continuos "story" - just amazing!
Another thing I love about these discs is hearing tracks with just guitar and drums or piano and voice really pushes the complexity of the chords used in these songs to the fore (The chords on John’s guitar for the early take of Good Morning Good Morning sounds way more complex, modern and edgy without the overdubs covering it) I think this album is considered overrated by Beatles fanatics but hearing these versions particularly the instrumental takes really rams home just how giant a leap this album was in their carrer, and just how sophisticated a work it is.It has really given me a deeper appreciation of the album.I haven’t even opened the massive hard back book that comes with it or watched the blu ray or dvd yet either but can’t wait too.Don’t be put off by the price this box set is well wort it ..unless you’re starving or something then don’t buy it! The Beatles .. turns out they were a handy enough little band!
But to be honest every single offering I’ve heard so far has suffered from poor sound quality. Yes, I know it was recorded in 1967, yes I know technology has moved on and yes I maybe expecting a bit too much.
This even applied, albeit to a lesser extent to the 2009 remaster, which was certainly a step up from the 1987 version.
Roll on 2017.
Unbeknown to me there were preparations to release a 50th Anniversary edition which included remastering, new tracks, demos and and unreleased/rare info and photos. The majority of times such things are of little or no interest to me at all. But there was a rumour that something fundamentally different had happened to the sound, And after a little bit of nosiness, yes it looked as if things had changed. Which was good enough for me. And off went my order.
Well I was absolutely blown away with this.
This version is unlike others not just a remaster but also a remix. Apparently the team responsible worked off the original mono source tapes as their reference point, using the latest remixing technology and acquiring some previously thought lost source material (sadly not all the source material has survived!) for it has been brought to bear. And it has made Sgt Pepper sound like it was recorded yesterday !
Absolutely AMAZING sound quality. Crystal clear guitars, nice bass thump, nice subtle details released on the drums which sound natural..not just a big splodge coming out of each speaker.
I know many people will have owned Sgt Pepper in the past, perhaps from the vinyl days and may need convincing as to why they should stump up for yet another version.
The album is still pure genius of course. But for me the sound quality has at last started to approach the quality of the music.
And that’s reason enough for me.
