Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/17/17 2:18pm doctorjazz:

I thought the earlier albums were originally mono, but stereo was done to satisfy "spoiled" Americans who wanted stereo mixes. I thought the later ones, Pepper and later, had original stereo mixes done. (Wikipedia says Pepper had 2 different mixes, the Beatles were only involved in the mono, but they were involved from Yellow Submarine on). They are supposed to sound different, but haven't noticed big differences (have a box cd set from 10 yrs ago or so), except that early Beatles stereo is really done badly, hard left-right panning (but so was much early pop stereo).

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/17/17 2:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The Mono mixes were the main thing they put the time into w/ The Beatles & engineers up until practically the end w/ 'Abbey Road' - which only came out in Stereo - but w/ Pepper - I think it's the *differences* that matter. Pepper is always critiqued for being too baroque & not heavy enuff - but the Mono version gainsays that - & there are a few things that just aren't quite up in the Stereo mix enuff (Paul's singing on the 'Reprise' for instance), which (is said) gives it a different cast.
The Fabs' 1st two albums were recorded on Two Track machines - w/ vocals in one & instruments the other - so Stereo in a way is a fiction! & their early approach w/ Four Tracks remained to mix hard Left & Right, yeah...They didn't get EightTracks until the White Album - which is almost the end, really...'Abbey Road', their last recorded as The Beatles - is quite different technologically than all the rest of their output - & so the slickest & most 'modern'...I dunno about heads & asses - just Stereo was for specialist weirdoes in the early 60s - & TheBeatles were a big radio hit anyhow. That's what they grew up w/ & mixed to. Hendrix came later - & hit the ground running in Stereo, quite dramatically - for instance...

we don't hear in mono, most of us. as it was obvious to Hendrix, and Lennon, at least, it was time to not impose a limitation on recording that didn't exist except in the minds of control freaks who were uncomfortable with change. (ie, the emi staff)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/17/17 2:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Lennon, driven by his imagination, always pushed @ the limits of Production (& complained about them) - as Hendrix pushed also. (McCartney basically *became* a Producer.) I don't think they *had* the 8-tracks yet: they had to link up four-tracks to have more tracks to use - very notably done for Pepper. Incidentally - THe Zombies walked into Abbey Road 2 1st thing after Pepper when they were taking those linked four-tracks apart - & said - stop! We'll use those - & did 'Odessey & Oracle' tracks. (Floyd was just down the hall during Pepper doing their debut, the great 'Piper @ the Gates of Dawn'.) But - Lennon actually said - 'If you haven't heard Pepper in Mono, you haven't heard it.'

RR, that's interesting that John said that; but then, 3 weeks to get it perfect vs. 3 days...
i personally don't mind the baroque-ness of it. i like a lot of music that's kind of un-dynamic.

I can't call something 'over-produced' that bears up to basically infinite listening. Pepper kinda gets a raw deal!

...right, RR. like all those pompous and pretentious critics who denounced prog rock because it's pompous and pretentious; when the fact is they just were constipated. couldn't let go & accept the idea that pop and rock could be literate, complex, informed musically.
