    Adding "you don't repaint Sistine Chapel!" and "you don't add moustache to Mona Lisa" as well :D

    I think it's to specify that it's not the 2015 "1+" remix.

    Nop! I won't buy it unless it ends with the Friar Park garden version of 'Ain't She Sweet'. It was part of the first Beatles' recordings and it should be part of their last.

  7. I would have enjoyed hearing that. ..
     
  8. Actually, those “Hare Krishna” b/v’s are in the released version, too, albeit way down in the mix.

    The fact that George did a demo, guide vocal for Ringo lends credence to the long-circulated rumors that Harrison had a huge hand in writing the song with Ringo.
     
  9. No, they used a bootleg copy of the 45. I’m not kidding. The box set version has the same distorted sections of the song as the bootleg. They probably bought it on eBay.

    I'm still wondering if the integrity of the original U.K. paper label first issue Abbey Road cassette will be maintained for the Abbey Road Remix 2019 cassette offering.

    My UK initial issue paper label Abbey Road cassette TC-PCS 7088 has Here Comes The Sun leading off side 1. Followed by Something, Maxwell's, Oh! Darling, Octopus's, and I Want You (She's So Heavy).

    Side 2 starts off with Come Together and proceeds from there.

    Integrity and what the Beatles intended.

    The things I care about for the upcoming stereo Abbey Road 2019 Remix cassette.

    And variable dynamics.

    I think they weren't even aware of this track order change which was made to even out the sides running time.

    I don't believe that. Probably the bootleg is the copy of the acetate that Giles used for the set...
     
  14. The drums don’t sound watered down, but rather they are positioned very low in the mix. They have a little bit of echo on them but otherwise don’t sound muddy or indistinct. They just aren’t very loud.

    Ringo's also admitted as much, at least on the VH1 Storytellers special.

    Love Ringo, but most likely what happened was something like Ringo and George were hanging out, and Ringo said "George I have this idea for a song, it goes 'It don't come easy..." and he sings a little and hums for a bit. Then George goes away, writes the whole song, then brings it back to Ringo to finish the lyrics together. George giving Ringo full songwriting credit was probably just a friendly gift.

    Last year was:

    September- Egypt Station
    October- Imagine Box Set
    November- White Album Box
    December- Wild Life & Red Rose Speedway boxes (plus the "Big Barn Box")

    Amazing time to be a fan but a very expensive one too!

    One thing that I did not make clear, by disputing @XC70 , I in no way am calling him a liar so there is no need for any defense. I 100% believe that this was the information that you were given, but the fact is, the ultimate source of my info I am so completely confident in, plus my source at UM confirming what I have, that I spoke out. Just wanted to clear that up, didn’t mean as an attack, just pointing out that it was incorrect

    actually it was me, hints started like two weeks ago, and I've said something like we will get only ONE outtake (or alternate take) per song except for a few that we will get three takes:cop: which of course they are breakdowns plus one in full except for one track that we will take complete or near complete takes but in general only one per song.
    By the way, NOBODY noticed today's hint from early morning, weird, I think all of you all more interested to know if we will get 70 CDs and 30 BR with bonus Betamax tape.

  21. Too true , mate. It was either the Lennon set or the White Album box for me. Had to go with the latter. No regrets.

    richierichie My glass is always full.

    Hey @maccawings, some people are jealous of the fact that yourself and @mikecarrera get inside info, this nitpicking started with Sgt Pepper then The White Album and now Abbey Road. Don't let the idiots grind you down they are an embarrassment to this forum.

    Your hint about "Something"? Probably got lost in everybody's arguing...
