I agree that the original stereo doesn't strike me as "effectively" as either the mono or this new remix when it comes to conveying the psych elements of the album. I mean all three are great and all three have the "magic" of a 1967 record. But one of the reasons I adore this remix is that it really drives home the vibe and nuances that went into the album's pallete of colors. At least to me. Where a panning technique or something may be lessened, a more dazzling or intricate shift of emphasis on an instrument or a background vocal makes up for it. Overall, I think the bulk of the success of the remix rests on how it brings forth its various multi tracks and its "of the time" aura in a more virile, more emphatic light. If the original stereo was clearly superior to me (and it IS fine, if you don't know the album any other way), then there would be no need for me to love this remix so much.
