The whole thing becomes a 3D sound collage which John would have loved to hear, for sure. It's the one track from the album where a few liberties were taken in the remixing. It's not like it's a completely modern remix with dub step elements brought it, but there are a few sounds that have been tweaked with and which were not part of the original mix (like the crowd chants/protests at the end of the track to which some "tape" sounds have been added). The "Number 9" sound bite travels from one speaker to another, which is really cool. The mix retains most of it's original skeleton, but some elements have been made louder whilst others quieter. I won't make everyone happy, but I really enjoy it and it's a nice companion to the Stereo Mix, which I still love playing all the way through.
What can I say, you have to hear it to fully experience it.

Happy White Album day everyone!
Impressed so far, only a few tracks in mind but this already for me makes the 2009 Remaster null and void.
gotta wait for the 75th anniversary, it'll have an extra 3 seconds and it's in 7.1 surround sound!
Nice. What format are you listening to?
Lots of focus on Kinfauns at the moment - this blog post is pretty fascinating.
That’s awesome, I’m happy that they really tried to make it special
I shan't get mine at least for a few days, maybe or later even. So I'll be dripping mouth saliva in awe of your deliveriers today.
Straight to Revolution -take 18. Amazing.
Still wish they’d found space for take 20 as well though!
I’m gonna attempt to isolate the overdubs from Take 20 using Take 18 to create a full stereo Take 20.
I started with the sessions and I'm about 2/3 of the way through. Great stuff. Really love the Helter Skelter, EGSTHEM&MM, Baby You're So Square, WMGGW, Good Night. It's all pretty darn good. I won't get to the remix or Esher until tomorrow. I did rip it and the session discs actually fit on two cds (if you want it).
I am very, very impressed with the remix so far.
The only Esher mixes that seem to utilize more than two tracks are all George songs. Seems to lend credit to the theory that most of these songs weren't actually recorded at Kinfauns, but transferred to the mixing console.
Hey Jude take 1 is a burner, man. You can practically hear Paul bouncing up and down on the piano bench.
What a vocalist Paul was!
That fast Helter Skelter take is brilliant.
Loving the Yer Blues outtake. Appears to be the final take but with the guide vocal throughout as heard in the last section of the master.
Paul's right in there with him screamin' it out. Also fun how John's not even bothering with the final lyrics most places.
George's guitar solo is missing the wild warbly ADT, too, and the smash cut is gone, replaced by a slow crash'n'burn ending. Looks like they dropped the beginning of the track in again for the master, sans vocal overdub.
“Helter Skelter” remix...cheeky bitch
For anyone playing along at home, here are the worthwhile outtakes:
04-08 - Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (Take 3)
04-10 - Revolution (Take 14 Instrumental Backing Track)
05-03 - Hey Jude (Take 1)
05-05 - Not Guilty (Take 102)
05-15 - Helter Skelter (Second Version Take 17)
05-16 - Glass Onion (Take 10)
06-09 - Happiness Is A Warm Gun (Take 19)
06-11 - Savoy Truffle (Instrumental Backing Track)
06-12 - Martha My Dear (Without Brass And Strings)
and one of the I'm So Tireds, but I'm Too Tired to listen to them again and determine which one.
It’s time to retire the original mono and stereo mixes. There’s a new sheriff in town.
I really appreciate how much of a fan Giles is of George's vocals, and that he made an effort to highlight them.
Off to listen to the whole thing now!
Thank you for mentioning that it’s not brickwalled and limited. People throw those terms around too easily.
Just wanted to let you all know that I've enjoyed this thread so much. As an 18 year old who doesn't live around people who normally have these conversations, it was great to find you all to discuss the music. Although I haven't made too many comments here, I check this thread several times a day to hear people's opinions. Although the set is available on spotify, I'm waiting until Christmas to listen to any of it. I'm hoping to receive the Super deluxe box then, and during a seven hour drive later that day, I've promised to experience it for the first time with my little brother who's also a huge fan. We plan on putting on two separate pairs of headphones and listening simultaneously. I just wanted to thank you all for all these conversations, from Schitzer's song by song reviews, to git vs. get, to the pronunciation of "Esher," it's been an extremely positive experience. Wish me luck in resisting this set until then! I'll still be here reading all your thoughts and opinions to keep me hyped.
So, was it confirmed that Giles didn’t do anything to Rev 9, because it sounds like it’s been polished at least
Yeah, I really hate it when we’re given a completely new track. The cads!
