An excellent version! The first album I owned as a kid is now the first Dr E. CD that I own. Brings back memories of laying on the floor with the headphones on and my eyes closed jamming out. The only drawback is a slight dropping out of sound here and there, but other than that, this blows the EMI versions away!

bobwalters, what drawback? Dropping out sound? Please explain. It sounds great sometimes??
Review by: grandegiOn 17 Jan 2005 at 18:08 CEST
Great job. Just minimal static ticks and a nice mono sound. Can't hear any "dropping out of sound".
Review by: jmnic63On 28 Aug 2005 at 08:33 CEST
I listened to this recording back and forth with and without headphones and I must agree there is no "dropping out of sound". This album sounds great all the time, especially in mono.

This is a fantastic-sounding transfer. I compared this to the official release, and there is no comparison; the bass on this transfer has a presence that I hadn't known was there.

There are a few interesting differences in the mono mix as well; note on I Am the Walrus that Ringo's snare drum does not come in before "... sitting on a cornflake..." and there is a pause in the drums just after the first "I'm crying" unlike other mixes. There is also an interesting phasing effect on the vocals in Your Mother Should Know. This website has more information on the mixes:

this is excellent for a mono transfer, but i still prefer the german ebbetts stereo version. it's the only 100% true stereo version available. also, "Baby, You're a Rich Man" sounds a little empty on this one. but overall, very nice. interesting to hear the differences in the mixes.
Review by: alessandromarinhoOn 11 Jul 2007 at 06:04 CEST
Jesus, Christ, is it me or some people have problem reading things? OF COURSE the German MMT is the only true stereo version around, and OF COURSE it is the best version available, but who the heck is talking about it here? This is a transfer of the US MONO LP, please stick to the facts, as a transfer of the US MONO LP, nothing beats this Ebbetts release... 10 out of 10, OF COURSE.
Review by: gordonfpOn 28 May 2009 at 16:21 CEST
I've wanted to get the mono version of MMT for long time; it was the only Beatles album that I lacked in mono. Also, it is odd that the U.S. was the only country that released a mono version. Both the U.K. and German version didn't come out until years later, and I believe were only pressed in stereo. So I finally got the Ebbetts version about a month ago. I was surprised that the high end was a bit weak. If anything, Capitol was usually too generous with the high end, substituting EQ for crisp 1st generation masters, but this CD, particularly on Hello Goodbye, seems lacking in high end. This is NOT a criticism, merely a statement of fact. I'm sure the good Doctor did his usual faithful job, and it's really great to have all these songs in their mono glory. After years of being a stereo "snob" and snubbing all things mono, it is clear that, for the most part, Beatles recordings between '62 and '68 are best heard in mono. Why? Because a combination of technology (only twin-track or 4-track) and the way the Beatles recorded (not "live", but multiple "passes") made it impossible to get a good, strong, balanced stereo mix. In many cases, all instruments were isolated on one side and all vocals on the other. While fascinating when I was a kid, it is NOT a good mix and does NOT result in a good or accurate listening experience. Drums and bass lose much of their power when panned extreme right or extreme left. Compare the stereo Magical Mystery Tour (the song) to the mono version here if you want a good example. ALL the mono versions from Please Please Me through this album (White Album is a toss-up...I'm so used to the stereo version) have more strength and low end than their stereo counterparts.
