I remember when the first CD version came out I was pleased to hear nuances that were lost on vinyl and I am looking forward even more clarity in this new version.

Sorry to bang on with these analogies, but that is like applying pebble-dash to the Taj Mahal in the belief that the original construction was marred by the limitations of building materials at the time.

I have the original album, I am an 'anorak' Beatles fan, I know every nuance on that album backwards, I didn't need a remix to hear them.

As I said earlier the anniversary album merely adds separation and a bit of bass end, it doesn't add any nuance for me, I heard it all the first time....as did millions of others who played it to death.

There are SEVENTY SEVEN bonus tracks on the iTunes deluxe version! Most are alt takes and demos, but there are a few names I don’t recognise. Haven’t listened to many of the bonus tracks yet...

That is OK, you bang away.

I also bought the original album when it came out and like everybody else played it continuously. That is until the CD version came out which sounded so much better than the vinyl.

I am pleased you are blessed with ears good enough and a record player goog enough to hear all the nuances on the original vinyl. I certainly heard a lot more on the CD version and I hope to hear more on the new none. Of course YMMV.

It's all subjective..... You, and many others prefer the clarity of the remixes.....I prefer the original vinyl, it's nothing to do with being a purist, it just sounds better to me.

I think the remixes are very well done, staying true to the originals.
The greatest thing here is going from the album songs to their demo versions and alternative takes that are included. What great music.

BTW their should be another term for the other sort of remixes, those that change the
arrangements, add tracks, make new productions out of existing stems etc.
