    Can anybody comment on the difference between this pressing and the 2018 Esher demos box set pressing? I own the latter but I'm thinking of picking up an additional copy to play so I don't have to open my box set every time. Much appreciated!

      I'm only halfway through Dear Prudence as I write this, but I'm floored - gorgeous mixes on quiet vinyl, it's like hearing this album for the first time all over again. Well done Giles!

        Finally sat down with this and gave it a serious listen .
        Sounds amazing ,ultra quiet too.

        For those bitchin about how it differs from this or that pressing ,,i dont understand why they bought a remix .
        Whats the point of a remix if needs to compare to your favorite original mix.
        There would be no point of a remix .
        Anyway ,,as a whole i really like how a lot of the heavy compression was removed yet in the process they somehow gave the whole album a nice cohesive sound.
        I know some of the charm of the OG pressings is the different mixes and vibe between each song .
        I still have those versions
        This remix is a great listen and worthy add to any collection

              One of my favorite pieces of vinyl. Just like the Sgt. Pepper remix, I find this version a huge upgrade sonically. The drums especially benefit from the new mix.

                I have a copy with a unique set of runout/matrices and no hype sticker/barcode. Otherwise appears to be identical 2018 reissue. Would appreciate thoughts on if this is a new variant to add here or a new pressing entry should be created? Thanks.

                  So close. Great separation and clean mix. No issues until Good Night. Then distortion and noise all over it. You couldn't have messed it up one song before?

                    Much like the stereo re-mix of 'Pepper' this benefits from an incredible separation of instruments & holographic spatial info. Ringo's drumkit also centered & very punchy. BUT... it's just too different for me to enjoy. The vinyl itself is dead-silent & flat as a pancake though, so there's that...

                      (this review is outdated - I had a different version - but will be kept up for archival purposes.)
                      Before I start this review, my copy came with a random blank sheet of blue paper? Like literally just a sheet of paper about the same size as the band portraits. Probably a factory error
                      Also, the matrix runout is different on my copy, and seems to be sourced from GZ Media if I'm correct (giveaway is the /A in it). Don't know if this is enough to constitute a new release page, but if so I will eventually do it

                      Anyways, this is probably the first time that I can say the vinyl version of an album truly is better than streaming or digital copies. Usually, I can't really notice a difference since they're so similar, but this pressing is something else. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da's guitars don't sound overblown (even though I don't mind that personally), Wild Honey Pie's screwy vocals and guitars sound surprisingly more dynamic, the drums in Happiness is a Warm Gun sound super punchy and fitting for the song's subject, the sound effects in Piggies are very standout, Why Don't We Do It In The Road?'s vocals are very powerful, EVERYTHING in Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey sounds so damn vibrant and punchy- I could go on, but there's so many little touches on this mix that make it sound so much more full than the digital copies. A must for any Beatles fan. I GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS!!!
