For those in the US -- this seems to have gone out of print. Before you order one overseas, it is worth checking Best Buy out of all places. You can check their inventory for this record online. A couple of stores near me still have some in stock.

Mistake!
I only have the Anniversary edition with one LP.
But the mix should be the same.

I am very disappointed by this mix!
I compared this edition with the original PCS 7027 and the German Odeon SHZE 401 from 1967.
This version sounds much deeper and bass heavier than the old ones.
The highs are strongly reduced. The record is also quieter than the old ones.
The old editions have a driving, forward pushing sound. This edition is perfect in sound but loses the character of the old pressings.
During the whole time I had the feeling as if the record is played a little bit too slowly.

Terrible mix. Much too loud. Avoid this one and get the mono version.

Now THIS is a remaster! The original stereo mix of Sgt. Pepper had significant issues, none of which enter into this new master, and overall, this is just a flawless piece of vinyl (or two). They went all out with this remaster, and this release in general. From the 1/2-speed mastering to the sturdy recreation of the original sleeve.

The second LP is an excellent companion, and it's always great to hear Beatles sessions, particularly remastered Beatles sessions. But the real treasure here is Giles Martin's 50th anniversary remaster of the original LP. The precise and dynamic presence of each instrument is remarkable, and reverent of the original mono mix, but expanding it to a whole new level of sonic depth and clarity.

Seldom do remasters truly astonish me. Frankly, they're more likely to frustrate, or downright infuriate me, than to impress, let alone astonish. The new stereo mix of Sgt. Pepper is nothing short of astonishing.

Whoa, now this is different! Mono, “Look oooouuut! Cause here she comes!...She ain’t no dancer!”. Giles goes boldly where George never had to, “fixing a hole where the rain got in”, in Stereo that is!

This honestly sounds fantastic, just read the other posts to get the gist of it, one complaint though is that there’s a warp, it doesn’t effect the sound, but it’s still scary. I don’t know if the dog whistle works though, next time I can here my neighbor’s dog outside I’ll play it with the window open and update yall on it.

Excellent version! The stereo remixes are much better than the original stereo mixes. Totally clean pressing as well. The Studio Sessions LP is a nice novelty. The main attraction here is the fantastic stereo remix LP. Giles Martin has done it again!

Wow! This really is fantastic! My only criticism is that it's been mastered very slightly on the bright side of neutral. But to be honest that may have more to do with the current characteristics of my system than the record. It really is a thing of beauty and I'd recommend that every collector own a copy.
