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.

Great sounding pressing, nice and quiet with a great mono mix. Highly recommended if you dig the Beatles.

Absolutely the finest reissue work i ever came across. Masterpiece in Mono.

a wonderful sounding pressing––crisp and clear, with an astonishingly low amount of groove noise. the only LP's i own that come close to this level of fidelity are Japanese pressings from the 80's. this is truly state of the art for vinyl, and therein lies the problem.

this edition of Rubber Soul bills itself as the "way most people heard it upon release," but the level of sound quality here is far better than anything pressed in the mid-60's. if i wanted to hear the album with perfect fidelity, the 2009 mono CD fills that role. all they had to do was use the original 1965 mastering and parts, and i would have been happy. this is what they did when the mono Beatles albums were reissued in 1982, so why not this time? i suppose they need another way to sell Beatles albums down the road.

My disc has a slightly higher pitch but the release indicates this remaster and cut were done following instructions from the engineers responsible for the 65 release so I'm guessing this higher pitch is normal?

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.
