    I am not saying this particularly to you, but what does this have to do with the new release?

    I mean I am a big Beatlemaniac, but what????!?

    Again, not directed at you........

    Wait ... My standalone CD is red, packaging etc. :confused: there's a yellow version? I bought it at Best Buy while Amazon fiddled with my preorder of the Blu-ray set. 2015 on packaging.

    The Yellow package has both a DVD and the CD. I think the red is just the standalone CD.

    Everything John said in interviews is the 100% truth, even when he contradicts himself. His comments always supersede McCartney's.

    We were on a tangent discussing John and Paul's songwriting relationship, and I sent this to Nik as further evidence that John and Paul wrote together until 1968, and that they didn't stop in the 'early fame years' as many people seem to believe.

    As for your comment not being directed at me, of course you were directing it at me; after all you asked me the question.

    What has being a Beatlemaniac got to do with anything? This is a Beatles thread with many different Beatles tangents and I am discussing the Beatles. So what?

    Thanks, I didn't know that he was only allowed one correction. That certainly makes sense regarding 'Eleanor Rigby' especially.

    This whole conversation was fascinating. I never realized that's what happened in "Day Tripper." Thank you.

    Could you please explain the swapping in "From Me To You"? I have never listened that closely before, but these things fascinate me and bring an added dimension to these songs.

    The stereo remix of Paperback Writer is a big improvement over the old stereo mix, but it still isn't quite as amazing as the mono. This is one of my favorite songs of all time; I know every nanosecond of it...

    Doesn't "Something" have a uke in it? I could swear I hear the plinking of a uke down in the mix.

    At least it sounds better than the awful cut n paste job on the Live At The BBC version. George couldn't have felt too good about his status in the band after hearing that crap edit.

    Check out Thank You Girl, I Dont Want to Spoil the Party and There's a Place for some other nifty Vocal swapping.

    Ok. As I said, not directed at you. Just a comment. No offense intended. Hope there will be peace between us?

    By the way, I love most of what I heard and saw upon one playback through the 2 BluRay discs and CD I bought.

    How about you?

    And yet that album gets less respect every week.

    After spending the week watching the two blu-rays, tonight, I fired up the Sennheisers and listened to the CD, end to end. These songs truly have never sounded better. Giles is a worthy heir to his Dad's work. Now, if they'll just pay attention to the positive reaction to The Cutting Edge, I won't have to worry about how I will fill my days after I retire.

    Yes, the red is just the standalone remixed CD.

    Another example of the 'swapped' harmony is the 'unplugged' version of "I'm Only Sleeping" on Anthology II.

    I would use the stereo remix of Revolution from the Love album (full version on iTunes or DVD-A) to follow Hey Jude on that studio remixes playlist. I think it packs a good punch with the stereo panned crunchy guitars!

    You can add the new mono mix of Revolution (from the DVD with live vocals) as one of your bonus tracks following Hey Jude mono mix from the DVD.

    I always wondered which version John liked of Coming Up so much.
    Studio or Live?
    I know he made the comment about listening to the McCartney II solo album and hearing the hit Coming Up, so that points to the studio version.
    But John was also living in the States where the live version became the A side.
    I'm confident he must have heard the live version as well.
