The Usenet Guide to Beatles Recording Variations.
So, after a long 6 months away from the Fabs, I find myself back in a Beatles obsessive mood. I couldn't find anything in a search, but was wondering if any of the Beatles experts here could list any/all problems with the Usenet Guide to Beatles Recording Variations. Obviously, the Usenet list has not been updated since the 9/9/09 boxes came out, but I don't think anything but slight edit improvements/mix differences were introduced with their release.
Hi, Is there any need, supposing one is interested in such things, to purchase "Every Little Thing": The Definitive Guide to Beatles Recording Variations, Rare Mixes & Other Musical Oddities, 1958-1986" by McCoy and McGeary, based upon the availibility of the Usenet Guide to Beatles Recording.
In addition Capitol tampered with many of the mixes, sometimes adding reverb or creating a fake Stereo (duophonic) mix. The new remasters are the original mixes done by George Martin and his engineers (and sometimes the Beatles themselves) at Abbey Road presented in the UK LP formats, which is the way the Beatles wished this music to be heard. In addition having heard many of the new remasters, these are done way better than the Capitol Albums discs were done, not as loud but with every bit of the music's dynamics preserved. I recommend them highly. If you want more detailed information on the recordings, albums and mixes, I recommend you google Usenet Guide Beatles Recordings.
