Great so far, but.....
By That One Guy!
So I've heard snippets of quite a few of the new mixes, and they sound 5-star! But the problems start with the bonus content. Yes, there's some bonus songs I'm excited for, like the demos of Sour Milk Sea and Circles, but where are the remixed studio versions of Lady Madonna, The Inner Light, Hey Bulldog, Across the Universe, Hey Jude, and the single version of Revolution? I can understand not having Lady Madonna and Hey Jude, because there are good remixed versions of those on the 2015 version of 1, but the others need proper remixing as well. Yes, there's a great version of Across the Universe on 2003's Let It Be...Naked, but it doesn't have the backing vocals of Paul, George, and the 2 random girls they recruited from the street outside the studio (which are only heard in the sped-up mix from Past Masters 2, which has yet to be remixed). I hope it will be on a 50th Anniversary of Let It Be since that’s when a version of the song was officially released, even though it was recorded in 1968 before The White Album. And yes, there's a decent remixed version of Hey Bulldog on 1999's Yellow Submarine Songtrack, but that mix adds reverb to John's and Paul's vocals, unlike the original 1968 version. I hope it will be on a 50th Anniversary of Yellow Submarine, but since there was no 50th of Magical Mystery Tour last year due to the 50th of Sgt. Pepper stealing the show, I don't expect a 50th of Yellow Submarine next year either due to a 50th of Abbey Road (which I'm still excited about). But that still leaves The Inner Light and Revolution that need remixing. I even looked into the 7-disc deluxe version, and while it does include 5 of these 6 songs (not Hey Bulldog), they're all outtake versions instead of studio versions. There are 4 discs of demos and outtakes! You would think that studio verions of these 6 songs from 1968 could have had a place somewhere on these 4 discs, or at the very least, like I said, The Inner Light and Revolution.
