Is it my memory, or did they seriously tone-down the jet sounds in Back in the USSR? I guess I’ll have to pull out my late seventies Japanese pressing and compare. Regardless, I love it! Really sounds great. I got none of the pressing defects others got, (return them, people!), and the mix is brilliant with vocal parts that were buried previously now clearly audible. Just overall a great sounding mix. Best I’ve ever heard this album sound, and I’ve heard it a lot over the years,

Not much to say other than a fantastic mix and a fantastic pressing of my favorite beatles album.

I only noticed the up n down waviness of side 2 bc somebody pointed it out! Before that I was just sitting and listening to an amazing press. So, um...don't look at the LP while playing?

Just wondering if this vinyl version was reproduced from a digital file or a new vinyl master? Anyone? cheers

Update. For the 2018 remixed version pressed by QRP, I received 4 copies from Amazon and all 4 had the same defects as I pointed out in my original review. I checked at a local record store and out of around 20 of so that they sold, most were returned. They are trying to get the German or French 2-LP versions and no longer are carrying the QRP-pressed U.S. version.

Sound quality on this press is top notch, hearing this on vinyl after hearing it digitally, while waiting for my record to come in, I can appreciate this remix even more so now. I'd recommend this to anyone even slightly into The Beatles or if they've heard them a billion times, this new mix makes The Beatles "White Album" sounds brand new all over again... Having said that my labels are a tad off center and there is some wobble to the record as it spins but it does not impact the sound. It's insignificant and doesn't bother me enough to complain about it.

Not being one to jump on any bandwagon. Queuing this I noticed the edge was not concentric but ignored it. watching it play it is so obvious the defects described here are right on. Tonearm on side 2 is riding a wave both up and down and side to side. The entire side. Did not look at side one at all but will next play.
Not what I would expect on a precision pressing in this day and age. I will be contacting QRP. Damn shame.

This remix is simp[ly brilliant across the board & zero quality issues here. Amazingly wide and clean soundstage. Incredibly low noise floor. Subtle room nuances in the recording studio are not lost. Every instrument and vocal channel in the mix exists clearly on its own but still manages to deliver a cohesive overall band sound. This kind of magic is incredibly hard to achieve especially when using old source material. Even if you're not a Beatles fan, this album is a must have even if only to act as reference material showing you (or others) what a truly great vinyl recording can sound like on your system.

It’s here! “The Cleanup Job” is finally upon us! Much of the muted, blurry, buried, and messy colours of the 60’s, that once gave the “White Album” it’s character (and charm some may say), are simply swept away here. This version is so analytically “cleansed”, it’s as if “Mommy Dearest” herself was hired on to show Giles and friends how to scrub the album really clean! She wasn’t mad at Giles or the album mind you, she was mad at the dirt! Somebody wrote a long a$$ article here about going out and finding an original 68’ U.K. Mono, I couldn’t agree more-right on Mr. “streetmouse” (aka Jenell Kesler)! Go out and get a Mono! Go out and get an original 68’ U.K. Stereo copy while you are at it! Play both versions back to back, and then pick and choose your favorite Mono and Stereo versions of the all the songs, and be sure to write down all of the reasons why which version is better, and then dream and wish for your idea of the perfect semblance of the “White Album” (many of us have, for decades no less). Orrrrrr, just buy this “2018 Remix”, because this new version is basically just that, a nice hybrid of sorts, it has a lot of the 68’ Mono’s punch and depth, while retaining much of the 68’ Stereo’s wonderful panning techniques and balance-it’s as if Mono and Stereo got together and had a little baby....I must warn you though, this remix is incredibly off-putting at first, and that’s due to it’s clarity, it doesn’t sound familiar like your old 68’ copy of the “White Album”, but give it time, it will sink in that this is 2018!

Giles did an awesome job on last year’s “...Pepper..”, all of that cross referencing between the Mono and Stereo versions of “...Pepper’s...” strongpoints was just what “Dr. Robert” ordered to make a superior Stereo “Remix”. The same approach more or less seems to have been taken here, Giles not only opted for cleanliness (which I must admit, “The White Album” was in dire need of), but it also appears that he did not shrug off the love from fans for both the original Mono and Stereo takes of the “White Album”.

This “Remix” is astonishing, and at the same time startling. To those of you that have been made uncomfortable upon a first listen, this “2018” version deserves a second listen, and many more there after....I get what Giles did here, he cleaned it all up-it’s a new vision of your old favorite “White Album”. As a listener, it takes an open mind (and a fresh pair of ears for that matter) to adjust to such changes being made after 50 years of listening to the original. Giles does it again! He gets a “Number 9, Number 9, Number 9...”, out of 10 that is!

My copy was perfectly flat and full sounding. I can totally tell Giles did the same route as Sgt pepper, very bassy and guitars are upfront in the soundscape. I will admit some songs I had to adjust my martanz bass down and up since some tracks I thought had too much bass (happiness is a warm gun, the ending ..the bass was rumbling my windows) but it's overall a great remix, I have yet to play LP 2 side B but once I do I will let you know if that side is defect free.
