Notes

This heavyweight 180g vinyl record was cut from the original master tapes. The mastering team used a completely analogue signal path and were guided by the notes made by the cutting engineers for the first pressing of the album. The packaging replicates the artwork and construction of the original LP sleeve.

Not much to add that the other reviewers haven't said, but this release is outstanding. I don't have the Michelle issue mentioned by two of the reviewers. Some of the best new vinyl I've purchase at this price-point.

Agree with the comment on Michelle. On my first listening it sounded overlaid with distortion, especially near the end. Second time around it didn't sound as distorted, but the mix of the background singers is still very strange.

On my copy, Michelle sounds incredibly "hot" (to the point of distortion on Paul's voice).

Is it an issue with this 2014 press, or has it always been this way on the mono?

Very impressive, as others have noted. Meticulous packaging and very full, warm sound. Worth checking out.

The whole 2014 remastered Mono vinyl series is beautifully done right down to every last detail, even the sleeves-near perfect replicas, at least to the casual eye. This Mono remaster sounds gorgeous, full, and warm-the music still sounds like what the cover of the album looks like. It's 2012 vinyl Stereo counterpart has a few perks too, but over all, in order to "get Rubber Soul", Mono remains King, and remains the way to "listen" to this album as a whole. However, I must mention two tracks on the Stereo version that stand out; "Norwegian Wood" and "Michelle". "...Wood" suddenly has what sounds like a kick toward the end of the track, revealing an interesting and shuffling off-beat. On the Mono mix, well, I can't hear a kick. My favorite track "Michelle" gets extended out just a hair, the fade holds off a little longer allowing that beautiful guitar being played to step out from the mix and breathe, finally bowing to close the song and side 1. I have to say that one of my main issues though with the remastered Stereo mix is that the vocals have to fight a bit to be clearly heard, otherwise it's a fun alternate mix to the Mono version.

Additionally, I did come across an original U.K. Stereo from 65', and I must say that George Martin's first try mixing the album in this format was not bad at all, just different, if not a little thin sounding. I'm not sure why he felt compelled to go back and remix it for 87'. The bass guitar doesn't cut nearly as deep as on the Mono take, and Ringo's vocals are panned left instead of right on "What Goes On", etc., but I actually prefer the quirks on the 65' Stereo version over what was presented on the 2012 remaster, at least the vocals sit correctly in the mix above the music, while the separation is very interesting to listen to.

Awesome remaster. The Beatles in Mono series is really excellent.
