Seems fairly reasonable to assume such a position. You also have to give them credit for coming up with creative ways to fleece the fan base.

I only just got around to reading the article. I would love to have heard more about the surround mix, but I gather that those in attendance didn't get to audition that...

Giles Martin interview on Radio 6. Starts around 1 hr 34 mins in.



Early version of the title track - take 9 at around 1 h 43 m 20 secs - one of the extras is broadcast in full. Interesting, wouldn't be playing it often.


New mix of With A Little Help From My Friends from 1 h 53 m 40 secs. Drums much more prominent, backing vocals clear, can't hear the bass as much as I'd like to (possibly not having the greatest speakers on my PC not helping)

I ordered mine from Amazon UK, so it'll be arriving a little late, but I had a bunch of funny money stored up in that account so I'll just have to wait. Super stoked, though.

By the way, the price listed on Amazon UK was higher than what I actually paid when I went to checkout by about nineteen pounds.

See i'll get the 2cd reissue of Pepper from the supermarket, more than happy with that. But THE White Album. That is right up my street. I'll want the big box for that and for Abbey Road.

Do I really need even the 2 CD set?

On the second disc alternate versions of the songs on disc 1 plus Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane?


£15?

I dunno.

The funny thing is, it's been a while since I've listened to the White Album, and I'm kind of bored with saying it's the best album ever, etc. So this will come at a good time!

There's a good argument that the white album is John's best beatles album and Paul's worst.
