The pressing quality is perfect, Optimal Media usually do a great job and this reissue is an example of that. However, I have to say I'm a little disappointed in the sound. The clarity is on par. Everything sounds crystal clear but the overall sound is pretty weak. Dynamics good...yes. But the music lacks an intensity that prevents this remaster from being truly great. At times the guitar really cuts and the drums sound prominent but it's not consistent throughout the record. It seems as when the vocals come in the rest of the instruments just fade away in the background and have no real prescence. This has nothing to do with mono because I've heard some great mono recordings that have mighty punch and girth to the sound. I don't know what happened here maybe the original mono masters weren't that great to begin with but I'm not really digging this faint sounding reissue, the bass has almost no impact at all and the low end really suffers. Again I have heard mono reissues with an excellent bottom end don't know why this reissue turned out sounding as weak as it did. I personally think this was mastered at too low of a volume.

This was my first mono album that I've owned so it was interesting to hear, not only what the Beatles intended to record, but also how musical seperation would occur when the sound comes from one acoustic source.

Around this time stereo records were still very much a gimmick so in the same way 3-D movies used to throw objects at the audience's face, a lot of stereo mixes back in the day did a lot of gimmicky pan play, throwing and bouncing sounds left and right with no discernible purpose or intent. In the case of the Beatles, none of these gimmicks were part of their design for Revolver and many of their other early albums.

So where does the studio mastery lie if you can't fuck with the pan knob like a spastic engineer on cocaine? It goes into the dynamic range and cleanliness of the arrangement both of which are on full display in this mix.

You can tell that great pains were taken to give each instrument and musical element it's own resonate space across every track. Despite the limitation of mono, separation and soundstage are still achieved creating an artificial sense of depth utilizing volume and keeping the instruments from overlapping onto one another. Nothing ever goes wide and spatial but rather it envelopes you and you can hear the elements deep from behind the speaker all the way up to the front of your face.

A great album and a great pressing.

Very wholesome pressing of this great album. The Beatles in Mono Vinyl collection were done really well, made from the original analogue tapes and mastered really well. Very clear and warm.

Another great release in this Beatles Mono series. No surface noise, and a very warm presentation. Some of the best new vinyl I've purchase at this price-point.

Very pleased about this one. Unfortunately I could never find a good quality original mono at a reasonable price so I've finally sprung for this pressing. At about $11 bucks on amazon it's 100% worth the money.

A superb presentation of this album. The mono mix has some highlights, particularly the clarity of the bass and the drive of the mid-range.

Great pressing, as are the rest of the LPs in the "Beatles in Mono" series. I'm not 100% certain that I prefer the mono mix of this album in particular (although it's really no contest when it comes to Sgt. Pepper's and Rubber Soul), but I'm very happy with this purchase. The record is dead-silent and the remaster is pretty flawless.
