I would give this an "11 out of 10" rating! It is so enjoyable to listen to. Dr. Ebbett has really done a great job here. Very natural sounding. In fact, it sounds like it was recorded yesterday, not 40 years ago.
George Martin should have a listen to this. These recordings can be made to sound wonderful in stereo, here is the proof.
Review by: ikemcfaddenOn 17 Jun 2003 at 05:35 CEST
11 out of 10? I'll go even further! How about 12 out of 10? What a great album, what great work. Perhaps the single best collection of "outfakes" ever produced. If the Beatles put this album out today, this is how they would want it to sound.
Review by: MichaelflaOn 05 Jul 2003 at 04:07 CEST
The Dr. Ebbett's Centered Stereo Remixes of this album (and With The Beatles) just blows any other remaster/remix out of the water! It's just as simple as that...

Review by: Karl KeytonOn 15 Mar 2004 at 13:56 CEST
This is the definative version of this album at the momment.How can EMI look people in the eye when all they can offer is a 2nd rate mono mix?
Review by: Orange_RoverOn 10 Apr 2004 at 17:08 CEST
On a scale of 1 to 10? How 'bout 1000++++++++??
Review by: pete_heppleOn 12 Sep 2004 at 16:54 CEST
This version has all the power, punch and clarity sadly lacking from the official release, I've completely fallen in love with this album again! The stereo remixing makes for a much more cohesive sound, rather than the original stereo mix with the distracting separation of the vocals completely panned to one side.

The only (incredibly minor) downside is that the stereo remixing seems to make the vocals just a tiny bit more prominent than the backing tracks, but this is only noticable when comparing different remastered versions and does not affect the listening experience at all.

Bottom line is - this is THE definative version and no collection could be complete without it. Simple.

This is not the "definative" [sic] version--it's an "outfake" for crying out loud! It does sound good, but it is not the recording as the Beatles originally intended. Interesting, yes; definitive, no.
Review by: seltaebehtOn 26 Aug 2005 at 06:59 CEST
This is very cleaver mixing exercise that shows how pathetic EMI are when it comes the updating their early Beatles catalogue. The centre mix is delightful and makes the songs sound brilliant. The only flaw is the vocals have been given far too much prominence and consequently the balance between vocals and backing is totally wrong. If only ...
Review by: prof. stonedOn 20 Jan 2006 at 13:05 CEST
I'm a fan of Dr Ebbetts' work.
His digital transfer work, that is.
His transfers of the original LP's sound fantastic (i.e. outfakes & could-have been-albums not included).

The stereo mix of this album was simply the twin-track as recorded on the sessions. The backing track on track left, the vocals (and background noise) on the right.

What has done here must have been quite a job.
The right channel was panned to the middle of the stereo image everytime the singing started and panned back to the right whenever it stopped.

Listening to this on speakers and especially on headphones is really annoying my ears.
The Beatles or George Martin would never consider 'mixing' it like this.

The two points are only for the hard work and the sleeve.
But rather than putting out this sort of stuff, the doctor should stick to what he's really good at: finding & transferring mint (vintage) vinyl for posterity.

Dear ebkesq,

I think that you couldn't be more wrong! The Beatles visionaries as they were, they would obviously want THIS STEREO version rather than the muggy stereo EMI put out in the market. They would certainly hang on to the Doc If they had known the guy! I now know how listening to STEREO really is! This is a whole new experience to me now, and the Beatles would certainly LOVE IT!

P.S.: Gee, no panning back and forth done here, it is simply impossible to do, and would be an amateur job, and NOT the high standard job we got accustomed to hearing from the DOC. moreover, over the headphones, one could have noticed this, because in the old days, there were no precision as we have today, sometimes the song's pace slows down or up, that's why it would have been impossible to pan the channels like that, no machine would adjust to this kind of changing, unless the DOC did it manually, hehehe...-:)

By the way, I am solid about my ten, If It weren't'annoying before, why is it annoying now? Just because someone pointed it out? Musical tastes vary, but I think that Beatles listening must be one of pleasure, and not criticism. I listen to the Beatles to have fun and remember good old times, and I find these remixes perfect, even If It Is a panning job or not. After all, after listening to all those crappy EMI remixes and lousy bootleggers attempts on Beatles both MONO & STEREO mixes, this is the holy grail for me, and I REALLY HOPE the DOC continues doing this with every single Beatles disc. I can guarantee that there are lots and lots of people eagerly waiting for more.
Review by: ringoswigOn 22 May 2006 at 22:09 CEST
I think Ebbet's did a great job. He's mixing from an album for Christ's sake and nothing is more annoying to listen to on headphones than an official Beatles early stereo release.
Review by: PublanskiOn 03 Apr 2008 at 06:14 CEST
Too much equalization on the bass. Too little guitar and drums. Vocals too loud and a muffled sound all around. Stick with Die Beatles or Blue Box.
Review by: MorninggloryseedOn 12 Jul 2008 at 06:27 CEST
Just got it and its not as bad as I thought. I'm personally a fan of 'old school' mix jobs and enjoy the wide pans....so this is not an essential disc for me.

But it does sound nice and is an interesting alternative to the standard mono and wide stereo currently available.

I'd love to see an official remix job with the traditional stereo as bonus tracks.

If you don't listen carefully, this might sound like a real good stereo outfake. I didn't and rated it a solid ten. But prof. stoned caused me to listen again with headphones and therefore I have to change my review. Prof. stone is right. This is indeed a panning job. As I haven't noticed it at first listen, it's well done, but if you listen carefully it's pretty obvious (and annoying).

Alessandro: Please listen again and report back. It's a panning job and if you have noticed it once it gets on your nerves each time you're hearing it. Of course it was done manually. And it was done well. I didn't noticed it until prof. stoned pointed it out to me, because it is well done and because I have three or four versions of this album and I haven't bothered to listen to this one very carefully. But once you know it, you will hear it. Or you chose to ignore it and hence rate it a solid ten, because everything with the Doc's name on it, gets 10 points from you.

This is nothing more then what United Artists did to the \"A Hard Day\'s Night \"lp in stereo, they manipulated the stereo picture (because they didn\'t have the stereo mixes from Geo. Martin yet). Listen to \"Cant buy me love\" or \"Tell me why\" on the original UA lp and you\'ll see what I mean !Go for the 2009 remasters for true sound ! also just released on vinyl from EMI on 180 gram vinyl.
