I do feel after Rubber soul the Beatles could do no wrong and this album is just Gold. I was very excited with the re-done masters, and hearing Yellow Submarine and Elenor Rigby on the Yellow submarine songtrack I was bursting. When my Stereo box set arrived I slipped this album on first. My heart sank I was so dissapointed the same mix with Voices on the one channel and instruments on the other. I don't get it at all. Ok the mono version are the definative versions, as stereo was still in its early stages. These stereo mixes according to our Beatles History were knocked off in an afternoon and George Martin and the other Beatles had nothing to do with the this mix so surley it would be ok to go back place the voices in the centre of the stereo pictrue. In this day and age of i players, listerning in headphones this kind of mix is just not exceptable. So are we gonna get a re balanced version? for one of the best albums ever, it worked with Pet Sounds with a great stereo version made from the original master. Over to you lot at EMI.
