F.A.Q.

Who?
I have a turntable and a nice record collection, mostly LP's from the 60's & early 70's.

What?
My aim is to make rare stuff (in glorious mono or sometimes stereo) publicly available again with the best possible sound quality.

Requests?
Generally, no. I select my projects very critically. Vinyl condition is everything. I tend not to work with records that are in less than pristine condition.

Donations?

  4. Wow, what can I say. Amazing work, and an apology for not thanking you for 'With the Beatles' effort. We could never take for granted the hard work you do. We see it, and we appreciate you. And I am so grateful!

  14. Thank you for the work you do, is there a reason why 'I call your name' is omitted that I've missed ?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you Prof. I agree this is the Beatles' best album. The band is working together as a tight propulsive machine and the songs have a freshness and innocence that got lost along the way. Beatlemania at its peak!

    As an aside, who is that guy on the album cover; third row from the top, third frame from the right?

    1. Wilfred Brambell I think that's the correct spelling of his name. He played Paul's grandfather in the film.

  16. Prof, I was hoping you'd do this one too. Just like you, I feel that even though there is a Stereo version available it really doesn't cut it ... It's half assed thrown together Stereo ...it doesn't count. I dig that you went in and found details in the original recordings of this album that just weren't obvious in either they're stereo or mono mixes ( remastered or not). Thanks you again for the fine work you've been doing on The Beatles' releases .... Oh yeah .... love that Wilfrid Brambell is on your cover art ...nice touch. Would've loved if Wilfrid actually did do Zappa's 200 Motels as Jeff Simmonds replacement !

  17. To clarify, the cover is taken from the movie poster. I had a postcard of it as a 6-year old beatlesfan and was mesmerized by it because it had more pics than the LP cover. Prof (I can't seem to post under my profile at the moment)

  18. Oh, I'm so glad you bothered!
    I thought you made a grat album sound even greater. The clarity. The guitar parts I'd never noticed before. Long Tall Sally really kicks. And great to hear A Hard Day's Night (the song) without that tape damage on the intro.
    Keep going, Prof. These remixes are a revelation.

  19. Thank you for this great remix collection. These sound so rich and even more exciting then the original mixes. These are just masterful!

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is the best I've ever heard this LP. I'm hearing bits I've never noticed before. Thank you so much. I particularly like the gentle stereo effect, with no hard left/hard right placement, so that it sounds cohesive and integrated. Why can't the record companies produce stuff this good?

  21. TY for sharing your hard work.My fav Beatles and it sounds great.Everything is so well balanced-an effortless smooth listen.

    ReplyDelete
  22. woah, didn't expect this album to be remixed, thought the original mix sounded fine already,
    got me looking forward to the Help and Rubber Soul(if possible) remix now :)
    thank you Prof! as always

  23. Wow - didn’t expect this. Brilliant! Thank you for sharing your talent.

  24. jimmie d sez: For me, the stereo version will never live up to the United Artists US mono version. The mono single-tracked lead vocals on "Tell Me Why", "And I Love Her", and "If I Fell" are outstanding compared to the stereo double-tracked vocals for those songs. Additionally, the mono chorus is double-tracked compared to the triple-tracked stereo choruses. Paul's voice gives out on the stereo version of "If I Fell" (2nd time he sings "was in vain"), whereas the mono version his voice is clear. During John's harmonica intro on the stereo "I Should Have Known Better", John's harmonica cuts out, but on the mono version, it's complete without a dropout. And lastly, the mono version of "I'll Cry Instead" is 15 seconds longer (extra verse) than the stereo version.

    Nonetheless, thanks for the download. I'll give it a listen.

  28. Good Prof. I agree this and Beatles For Sale are my fav. early Beatles albums. Keep 'em comin' mate. BTW Are You Experienced could use a DES version and probably Axis too!

  34. Unbelievably great work. As with the other early Beatle albums, I've never been able to enjoy the stereo versions. Your work has changed my mind and are now my go-to versions. Well done! hmalbrt from Thailand

  43. Thanks so much - these Beatles remixes are amazingly good! Please keep them coming!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yes - every track is a winner. But you elevated this album from great to brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love that you moved the guitar solo in ISHKB to the middle. This solo really deserves the focus. Wish you will do the same in Nowhere Man when/if you do Rubber Soul (which would be wonderful!).

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wonderful! Thank you!

  48. Thank you for these Beatle remixes. Excellent work, it really feels like it unleashes the sound. Hope you continue with them, the other early LPs at least.

    ReplyDelete
  49. All these remixes are superb prof !! Many thanks and keep them coming......

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hey Prof -- first off thank you thank you thank you. I could write that a thousand times!

    Second, to address something you said in the "Info" notes...
    > to me this is their best album.

    There have been times in my life I would agree with that assessment.

    At the risk of stating the obvious, the original UK version (i.e., w/o bonus tracks) is the only Beatles LP where all the songs are by Lennon/McCartney.
