This pressing has sound recorded in the B side locked groove: the laughter and the multi-layered collage of randomized chatter that appeared in the reissue of the British pressing (the inner groove starts playing before the needle reaches the locked groove, includes the laughter not heard on the British original pressing, and, once the needle hits the locked groove, the listener only hears the last two seconds of the piece played over and over again).

I bought this as a Xmas gift to myself last year. I wish I bought two!

The highest fidelity of any of the 'Beatles in Mono' series I own.

Wow, this seems to be steadily climbing up in price, eh? Glad I grabbed it before it got (sorta) scarce.
Fantastic sounding pressing.

Sounds amazing. Vinyl was so clean, I didn't even need to use my brush on the record. Surface noise is dead silent!! If you don't have this, get it!

Any other copies have the text on the spine backwards? Mine runs from bottom to top instead of the usual top to bottom

Wishing I had an early UK Mono to compare this to, but not having lucked into finding one, or spending big money to get one, I just have an early and clean (stereo) US press of this album. I read so many good reviews about this release I had to double up. This is so very good, great really.
I should find a home for the other, doubting it will ever be played again when I can listen to this.

There's a typo on the back cover: "... ME. KITE" instead of "... MR. KITE"

This newly remastered vinyl Mono mix (like it's original Mono predecessor), hands down, is "clearly" the way the band intended you to hear the album, it retains all of the album's invitation, technique, allure, and spectacle. The 2012 vinyl Stereo remaster is to say the least, disappointing. To begin with, this album in Stereo was not what “the boys” had in mind, secondly, this new remastering only brings out the rushed original Stereo version’s flaws, while at the same time burying the vocals/background vocals with overpowering instrumentation. I can hardly hear the "Good mornings" on "Good Morning Good Morning", or the "Sgt. Peppers..." on the "Reprise" in Stereo. In general, up to this point in the catalogue, my nitpicks with the 2012 Stereo mixes on vinyl are that the vocals don’t sit right within the mix. The original 60's and 70’s analog U.K. Stereo pressings don’t seem to have this problem, they are by far superior, playing with better clarity and separation, and far less thunderous low-end. One thing that is cool about the 2012 Stereo edition, is that it has an extra insert filled with album notes that isn't in this new Mono package.

When comparing this new Mono to a -1 U.K. 60's original, I have noticed that some of the higher frequencies have been rolled off, losing a tiny bit of that sharp "technicolor sound" that the original has, just compare "Lucy In The Sky With Diamond's" opening on both versions and you'll hear/see exactly what I mean. On the other hand, the distortion/sibilance that is heard on the 60’s originals is gone, "She's Leaving Home" has never sounded better. Do note that the gibberish lock-groove on the new Mono is not quite as seamless like on the 67', but it is there, and still doesn't make any sense, and it never could any other way🙃. Mono "...Pepper..." is a must have...

This remaster recording is different from the early recording so i don't like it. It can be analog recording but early recording is better.

I own several copies of this magnificent album, but this one is by far the best. It sounds great and the difference with the 'normal' stereo version is remarkable. It's a strange sensation to experience that a mono album sounds more natural than a stereo version of the same piece of music. I tend to say that I can 'see' the Beatles perform on this version of the album, something I can't say about the standard stereo-mix. One of the best sounding albums in my collection.
