RM3 Take 15 - Mono Copy #2
4 Sep 1962
SS.PM1.01.15.RM3
The Beatles
Released on:
CD: EMI CDP 7 90044 2 Past Masters 1 1988.

Ringo on drums. At the end of 1962 the original master tape was lost, and replaced by "Love Me Do (version 2)", with Ringo on tambourine. Both Rarities albums (UK & US) used a version tranfered from a 45rpm vinyl owned by EMI. This became the definitive mix until 1982 when a collector made a better transfer and sent it to EMI. This immediately became the master, and has been used ever since.

Recorded on two-track tape and perfected in around 15 takes.

Brennan: Capitol missed this song somehow so the Vee Jay issues were the only US release until 1973. Vee Jay did not have the stereo mix and used the mono version on the stereo LP VJSR 1085 (Thank You Girl is also mono there). US had to wait 1973 and the release of "1962-1966" to have this song in stereo.

RM1 From Unknown Takes

Released on:
UK: Parlophone R5055 single 1963;
UK: Parlophone PMC 7016 Oldies 1966;
US: Swan 4152 single 1963;
CD: EMI CDP 7 90043 2 Past Masters 1 1988.

The sonic restoration by Peter Mew, made originally for the EP set in 1992, sounds much better than this version. The edits became much more noticeable in the first CD appearance in 1988. There is no 'true stereo' mix of this song.

Taped on two-track, it proved surprisingly complex to make, the master tape being a complicated edit from a number of takes.

The harmonica is an overdub so it must be a 2d generation tape (at least). The master tape of I'll Get You is officially lost, but some say it was stolen in 1963 and still exists. There is no "true stereo" mix of this song.

This is the fourth mix of this song, the third in stereo, made in November 17th, 1966. The first stereo mix was made in October 1963, but was released only in an Australian 45 in 1976(!). The second mix was made in June 1965, but released only in Europe.

The 1963 stereo mix was used for the first time for two single reissues in 1976, but for some reason the compilers of Love Songs in 1977 either could not find it or did not know it existed, and instead made yet another mock stereo version.

This mix seems to have gone missing in the vaults for a while after being copied for Australia in 1967, as it was not used for the Parlophone Rarities LP.

Review by: pohlar prod, dpohl@golden.netOn 15 Jun 2000
Just a suggestion. Since the red and blue albums are now available on CD, and a new single CD "Greatest Hits" is being rumoured, it might be worth taking all the exclusive tracks on both Past Masters 1 and 2, the bonus tracks on the Baby It's You EP, and the exclusive tracks on the two Anthology EPs, and creating one definitive compact disc of "rarer" tracks.
Someone pass the idea along to EMI!
Review by: montequiOn 19 Jan 2008 at 15:49 CEST
This sounds fantastic, but it still kills me that tracks 2, 3, 8, and 9 are presented in mono. I know a lot of people prefer the mono versions, but it would be cool to have those in stereo (bonus tracks?) here as well.

Also, is this the best sounding version of "I'm Down"? I wonder why even THIS version sounds muddy.
