@jafant and All
I had to take a break from listening to the Beatles , but after reading comments on the forum What's On Your Turntable Tonight and talking to the owner of House of Records here in Eugene I had to go back and listen some more .
It seems that the 2014 mono version ( I have the LP only ) is preferred or well liked, I was informed that the cowbell was missing in the new re-mix ! Well is is there but less pronounced than on the mono version , listening to the 2009 digital from the original masters , the 1982 Beatles Collection and to the 1987 CD they all have a less pronounced cowbell .
There are differences between the original stereo mix and the original mono mix just as there are now new differences between the original stereo nad the new Giles re-mix . Question for those with an original mono and the 2014 remastered, do you here any differences ?
jafant. I would like to think that when the original master tapes were sent to Japan in 1982 for MOFI to make their 1/2 speed masters that the Beatles Collection was able to use the masters but since the Collection was started in 1978 with a UK pressing. and MOFI was pressed by JVC and the Collection was pressed by Toshiba / EMI it's hard to say .
