The 2010 Singles remasters (or anything from Words & Music, Singer's Singer (2011 edition) Uncovered/Rarities) have not been superseded by further releases except in a few cases. Any subsequent re-issue (despite what was said by the record companies) will be the same remaster. For instance I supplied a list of the remastering dates to Warner for the George Martin set, but they decided to label all as "Remastered 2016" which was probably only true for just over half. Admittedly there will be minor differences in volume as I always level check from track to track that the final master volume is consistent, but that will be all. Since Singles was issued (and very promptly deleted!) there have been four songs that have been properly re-mastered. From Russia (actually a re-mix), Tahiti - In Stereo from the sessions reel (long story, part of the From Russia chaos around the time of Singles, as was the session tape of My Love and Devotion - Previously remastered from a 2nd gen tape, not the session reel) and remastered from the session reel for the unreleased "Definitive Matt Monro" set Why Not Now? which is yet to see release. The Master take was reportedly cut out from the session reel (as many were from the direct stereo years) and placed on the master reel of the 1976 comp "Very Best Of", which is the version I used for Singles. It wasn't until I heard the complete reel, when putting together Alternate, that I discovered that it was still on the original reel after all. Any "Singles" tracks used on "Singer's Singer" (except From Russia) were the "Singles" remasters. One other "Singles" song has been remastered, I Am In Life, but it actually sounds identical to the Complete Singles version, but was remastered from a 24/96 digitisation instead of a 24/44.1 used for singles. I actually think the original transfer was made in 96/24 and down sampled before being sent to me back in 2010. The question about "Rarities." This album was an amalgamation of "The Rare Monro" and "Matt Uncovered" As I'm sure i've mentioned (probably many times as it annoyed me so much), both were deleted during the Universal/Warners buy out of EMI. Michele wanted the material to still be available so Warner said that they could issue "Rarities" using all the non Universal owned material. When "Rare" was first issued all of the tracks were indeed rare, lots of single B sides having never been re-issued. Michele & I discussed leaving these out on "Rarities" but considering that Complete Singles had also just been forcibly deleted, we thought at least some of the tracks would still be available. In these cases the 2010 singles remasters were used (in Stereo where possible, many having been mono on Rare). There were a couple of exceptions. "I Love You Too" and "When Love Comes Along" are alternate takes used by the original compiler at Abbey Road in error. We decided to use these as well. I did not master Rare Monro. I'd known Michele a matter of weeks when I restored 11 tracks from the "Matt's Kind Of Music" radio show for her, but i had nothing more to do with the project, and you can't blame her or EMI I was an unknown quantity at this stage. When we planned Rarities, Steve Woof allowed me to re-master all the "Rare Monro" tracks but wasn't able to get new transfers of everything, thankfully I had new transfers of many tracks created for other projects so was able to use those, plus some better sources and new transfers from the Estate's collection. A few tracks were cleaned up from the original "Rare Monro" 16/44.1 transfers but not many. All were an improvement. All the "Uncovered" songs on "Rarities" are identical masters.
