    It's a shame that the catalog wasn't remixed as far as possible (songs like «She Loves You» and «Tomorrow Never Knows» would be a challenge).

    It's weird that «Yellow Submarine Songtrack» is the best sounding Beatles album available.

    Apple should have done like Neil Young. Released regular remixed CD's and 5.1. mixes in a DVD and Blu-Ray version.

    you see? these are the kind of things that encourage people to search over the internet and download music, i mean, in Mexico i'm going to buy the original stereo box set in a very high price because of the many taxes we have, therefore i'm not buying the mono mixes but i do want those early mixes you talked about

    Either George Martin doesn't think much of his 1987 remixing effort, or his 83 year old mind is slipping.

    Can you remember all the interviews in the eighties about The Beatles on CD? George Martin said on several ocassions that those CD's where remixed versions etc.

    Here's a good interview with Sir George from 1987, where he says things like: "When I started in 1962 with the Beatles, we only made mono records." and "We issued Please Please Me in February 1963, and certainly no stereo mixes were made. Not by me. Not by anybody I know."

    IMO Rubber Soul 87 is OK, it has no added reverb, just a slight repositioning of vocals and drums towards the center. Help! 87 I have always thought a mistake, and so is the 2009 remaster. Thankfully I also now have the Help! 1965 version, on my mono disc.

    I always thought that it was becuase the 1965 mixes used extreme panning with the vocals right and everything else left, so Martin fixed that up for the 1987 re-issues.
