    Preordered! Quick question: What, if any, is the difference between this mono mix and the 2009 mono version from the box set?

    • Peter says:

      The only difference is the inflated price this set will cost you to get it

    • Andreas Müller says:

      2009 was a remaster of the mono album, now we’ll get the original mono album.

      • J says:

        2009 remasters were also the original albums. I remember them telling the story that they listened to the original albums for months before remastering it. the differences will probably be of small things. when u already own the mono masters of 2009, then u actually have to pay nearly 200 euros for three albums and a book. pretty expensive.

        • Andreas Müller says:

          If I’m right we will get a transfer from the original 1966 mono master. This is not the same as the 2009 remaster.

    They’ve done an excellent job with the separations. The guitar, bass and drums were locked together on the left side. We now have a nice stereo image. Very impressive. Looking forward to hearing the whole album.

    • Stephen says:

      It’s astounding. Absolute witchcraft! Even the drum parts are separated and placed across the stereo picture. Unbelievable!

    Maybe it’s just the limit of the song’s original production – namely, no wall of sound – but I found the 2022 mix pretty “weak”, especially the drums – I know, 1966 was not like 1968 in terms of mics – but I hope it’s also YouTube file compression and the CD will a bit better.

  4. William Campbell says:

    So only the 14 tracks on the original album have had their vocals and instruments separated and remixed using the Peter Jackson software.

    But none of the session tracks have received this treatment.

    Thanks to those who responded to my mono question above. I’m looking forward to my CD box set.

  6. Kevin says:

    Can’t find the vinyl reissue on Amazon.US yet, only the CD deluxe set and the 2-CD reissue set.

  7. Tony Littman says:

    The Steve Hoffman forum is full of people whining about there being “artefacts” on the remix, notably the cymbals, and guitar solo. For goodness sake – it sounds fantastic, and if you’re hearing things in the cymbal sound that you never noticed before it’s because it was lost in the muddy stereo mix before.

    It’s incredible. All the snippets of the songs sound amazing, especially Rain. I am obsessing for this set. I’m happy I’ll be able to download the 24 bit 96khz stereo version instead of ripping it laboriously from a Blu-Ray.

  9. Rick says:

    I listern to Taxman and I really couln’t tell that much of a difference the the orginial one

    How many remixes of Revolver do we need?
    UK : 1966 stereo, 1966 mono, 1987 stereo,2009 stereo, 2009 mono, 2022 box set. 6.
    Eleanor Rigby : the above, plus Yellow Submarine Songtrack, Love 2006,1(2000), 1(2015). 10.
    In the case of Eleanor Rigby, the new set is Giles Martin’s third attempt at it!
    It’s all getting a bit unnecessary, what great revelations are we still seeking?

    • None of the above mixes sound good for headphones. We were waiting for decades for a good remix. First we hoped it will be for the CD in 1987. Then the Songtrack in 1999 showed us how Eleanor Rigby could sound. Then we hoped that in 2009 they will remix and remaster the catalogue. Did not happen Now in 2022 it FINALLY happens. So please be happy with us, because we who are still around ARE

    I wonder what image is on side B of the picture disc?

  12. The Revolver 2022 box set is another attempt by Apple to generate revenue and not deliver music. 2 CDs of Revolver sessions with only 14 songs, (Disc 2) or 17 songs (Disc 3) is an insult to fans. And many of these songs are only bits. And an EP with just 4 songs is more of the same effort to not give you your money’s worth. Another copy of the mono album may be of interest to some fans, but it has already been sold to us. If they included a Blu Ray 5.1 surround mix, (like done with Love, Sgt. Pepper, The White Album, and Abbey Road) it would have been a better value. Revolver was another step in the Beatles evolutionary journey. However, there has been so much more Revolver sessions already released to fans on bootlegs previously on other labels like Purple Chic, Pear, Walrus, and Granny Smith. Fans should seek out these collections.
