Random initial thoughts... • I remember the first time I heard the long “Something” outro jam and being amazed… now I’m equally amazed that something like that most likely will not make the set. Not because I’m ungrateful or unhappy with what we are getting, but it just seems like something that would be the most prime for inclusion and would be most revelatory for fans who have not heard it before. And now its forever locked to the crummy sounding boots. Why are we getting an isolated orchestral overdub instead of this? • “Long One” rough edit is going to be underwhelming if it’s anything like I remember being on the boots. Sitting through the Abbey Road medley all over again just to hear Her Majesty come in before Polythene Pam... nice to have but definitely not my first choice when they have a history of not even approaching the disc capacity, and the SDE will only have 2 discs of outtakes. There is a big upcharge for a collector to get 2 ~50 minute outtake discs instead of 1 in the standard edition. This is going to be 15+ minutes of one of those discs. • no indication of “direct transfer” of the original stereo mix, seems this was just something they were doing to make the mono mixes available outside of the 09 box. this was a HUGE additional value to the other sets for me, so I’m sad to see it go • What is the greater significance of the Dolby Atmos remix vs. a traditional surround mix? Does this mean in theory particular isolated mix elements could someday be extracted from the disc? My understanding of Atmos and other object based audio standards (admittedly something I’m not incredibly familiar with) is that “mixing” happens “live” / in real time in the pre/processor, for lack of a better way to put it. How far off base am I?
