    I'm very disappointed that the Oobu Joobu tracks aren't pulled out as stand alone tracks.


    No Blu ray audio disc or Hi Rez versions. Disappointing

  3. William Campbell says:

    It was probably recorded in low resolution digital, as is 99% of all of today's 'music.'

  4. Paulmacca says:

    Really disappointed that the demo version of Somedays has not been included. It is far superior to the final version.

  5. Unknown says:

    I'm in……..possibly my favourite Mccartney long player!

  6. angel says:

    is the demo version of Somedays (mentioned by Paulmacca on a previous post) available in YouTube ?

  7. Shakespeare says:

    angel: Yes, here: youtube.com/watch?v=JT5whieg-Hk
    (I believe this is the one you're thinking of.)

  8. Danny Boy says:

    News might come in soon, has anyone seen his Spotify or Youtube pages?

  9. William Campbell says:

    The "Stuck in the Dreadful Eighties", er, I mean "Super Deluxe Edition" web site is reporting that the Deluxe Edition DOES come with an on-line code for high resolution downloads.

    Can anyone verify that Flaming Pie was an analogue recording?

    The only relevant information I can find is that Marc Mann did some digital sequencing (on the first track only, I believe). But that doesn't mean it was recorded digitally, only that a sequencer was used in the mix.

    Otherwise, I can't find any references to this being a digital recording.

    If anyone is ordering with a new account at MusicVaultz.com, they offer a 15% discount if you sign up for their newsletter.

    When I did, they sent me the discount code of VAULTZVIP, which saved me over $50 when tax is considered.

    Try the discount code first; you may not have to sign up for the newsletter.

    As far as I know Tug of War was the only all digital recording.

  12. William Campbell says:

    Tug Of War was an analogue recording, but MIXED digitally. Ditto for Pipes Of Peace, I believe.

    That's why the high resolution version from a few years ago was remixed.

    They had to go back to the individual analogue tracks to get a higher resolution.

  13. Debjorgo says:

    I sort of knew that. I knew it was remixed because the remastering would not had changed the sound on the recording because it was digital.

  14. Debjorgo says:

    I remember when all the CDs used to have AAD or ADD written pretty large on them to signify the recording source. I thought he went back to AAD for Pipes of Peace.

  15. Debjorgo says:

    I think I'm remembering that wrong too. All my old Beatle CDs have ADD, so I guess if they went back to the master tapes, they were digitally remastered.

    So never mind my comments. I'm bowing out of this one.

  16. William Campbell says:

    No, I think you're right.

    I checked the high resolution tracks of Pipes Of Peace, and they do contain frequencies up to 48 kHz, which is correct for a 96 kHz sampled file.

    Just like a 44.1 kHz CD has frequencies up to 22.05 kHz.

    So Pipes Of Peace was an analogue recording and mix, and AAD is right.

    I believe that some of the original pressings of Beatle CDs had the wrong SPARS code on either the disc or the packaging, or both.

    So maybe Flaming Pie was his last analogue album. The CD is brickwalled; hopefully we'll get better dynamics with the July reissue.
