Love Me Do

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:23 • Studio versionD • Mono • 2015 mix - This is the take with Andy White on drums and Ringo on tambourine. It is the same mix that we hear on the British Please Please Me album and is the mix that was released as an American single. Therefore, it is the “hit” version of the song. This version sounds like the 2009 remaster, but there is a slight difference. This mix has a slightly longer fade; we hear about half a second more than we do on PPM

From Me to You

Written by Lennon - McCartney

1:58 • Studio versionE • Mono • 2015 mix - The song disappoints me by being the mono mix. The original tapes exist, so it would have been possible to compile a stereo mix that included the harmonica intro, but they didn’t do it.

She Loves You

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:22 • Studio versionB • Mono • 2015 mix - The mono mix is the tape extant. The edits are quite clean here, but it sounds like parts of the song have been re?EQ’d in order to make the track’s eight edits less noticeable.

I Want to Hold Your Hand

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:27 • Studio versionF • Stereo • 2015 mix - The mix is almost identical to the remaster, but the hand claps sound quieter. The remaster also had a little echo on the vocals, and that’s absent here. The vocals sound more clear and distinct in the second chorus, too. Could be the same mix with a bit of sonic tweaking.

Can't Buy Me Love

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:11 • Studio versionD • Stereo • 2015 mix - The vocals on this mix are spread out across the stereo image with the drumming in the center, and the main guitar overdub at right. The percussion is somewhat muted at the top end, but the original stereo mix (1964) also had the top end muted

A Hard Day's Night

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:33 • Studio versionF • Stereo • 2015 mix - The bongos are mixed further back, the vocals are spread out, and the guitars at the left are louder. So, while the arrangement is similar to the 1964, this is definitely a new mix

I Feel Fine

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:20 • Studio versionD • Stereo • 2015 mix - The movement of the guitar feedback across the stereo is more abrupt in this mix, but most notable is the separation of the two lead vocals into the left and right positions. The answering (back) vocals are still in the middle of the mix. The fade is a bit early

Eight Days a Week

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:44 • Studio versionE • Stereo • 2015 mix - During the intro, some of the guitar work is in the center instead of at the left. The backing vocals are spread out L & R, instead of C & R. These are the vocals that come in at “hold me” and continue through the song title

Ticket to Ride

Written by Lennon - McCartney

3:10 • Studio versionD • Stereo • 2015 mix - Both stereo mixes have the lead vocal and Paul’s backing vocal in the center of the recording; however, the original mix has John’s second vocal (which appears in the second half of each verse) in the center with his primary vocal. In the new mix it appears faintly at the right side. The tambourine has been placed to the right in the new mix – instead of at dead center. The fade during the fifth repeat of “my baby don’t care” is a bit quicker on this mix, so the last notes are fainter

Help!

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:39 • Studio versionE • Stereo • 2015 mix - The vocals are spread out during the intro on the new mix; they are together on the 1965 mix. There is not the echo that is present on the 1987 mix. The guitar overdub is spread across L & R instead of being at R only. The drums sound a bit muffled for some reason

Yesterday

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:06 • Studio versionG • Stereo • 2015 mix - Paul’s voice is clearer on this mix than on the 1965. It is dry throughout with no reverb. The echo in Paul’s double?track on the first chorus is reduced even more than in 1965. (Compare mono.) The stray bit of string work (sounds like someone resting their bow on the strings) is missing entirely from the new mix. The strings do not groan as loudly in the last verse.

Day Tripper

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:49 • Studio versionD • Stereo • 2015 mix - Guitars in both channels throughout, as the original UK mix and standard CD mix. Thank goodness that they have gotten rid of the echo that has been everywhere since the original 1 album in 2000. The edits are there, though, so we don’t get the dropout that was in all of the original mixes. The big difference between this and the original mixes is that the vocals are spread out between center and right – instead of being all at the right. The bass also sounds like it is at center, but it is mixed very low

Paperback Writer

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:15 • Studio versionC • Stereo • 2015 mix - The drums and lead guitar are at center instead of at one side; the vocals are at left and right, instead of mainly centered. There is less of the deliberate echo, and it’s all in the center. The fade is more rapid, so that the song is a bit shorter in the new mix.

Penny Lane

Written by Lennon - McCartney

3:00 • Studio versionE • Stereo • 2015 mix - This new mix basically has a lot moved around, and some instruments are at noticeably different volumes. Ringo’s tapping (center) is much louder in this mix, being somewhat distracting; the drums are also somewhat louder throughout. The bass is mainly at C in the 1971 mix (all but the overdub near the end) but is at L during the 2015 mix. The piccolo trumpet solo by David Mason during the instrumental bridge is at Right in the 1971 mix but is at Center here, and there seems to be more of it at the beginning of the bridge. The tambourine is at left instead of center. The vocals singing “there beneath the blue suburban skies” are at left and right in the new mix (instead of center). One guitar is at the left instead of center. The extra “grinding” guitar bits that are most noticeable during the last verse are much louder in the new mix. The horns are in different locations during the final choruses, too.

All You Need Is Love

Written by Lennon - McCartney

3:51 • Studio versionE • Stereo • 2015 mix - The opening “love love love,” which had come in at L in the 1968 mix, are at left and right in the new one. The drums and percussion are now centered instead of being at L. The stray voice just before the singing starts has been mixed further back, but it is still audible. John’s lead vocals are centered (as in the original mix), but there is some separation between them during the chorus. The backing vocals (ah…) are at L & R, instead of all being together at Left. The handclapping comes in at left and right instead of at center. The fade is also a bit different: although the 1968 mix and 2015 mix last about the same length – six repeats after the “She Loves You” reprise, the new mix drops down lower near the end, and the last repeats sound like the vocals and nothing else.

Hello Goodbye

Written by Lennon - McCartney

3:29 • Studio versionD • Stereo • 2015 mix - The drums in the 2015 mix are centered in the mix, whereas they were at Left in the 1967 stereo mix. Since the tambourine remains at Left in both mixes, the drums and tambourine together create an interesting effect in the new mix. The “why why whys” have been moved from R (1967) to L (2015). Both mixes fade out after approximately 8.5 repeats of the coda, but the 1967 fade is longer/smoother, and the version found on the video disc ends abruptly after 7 repeats.

Lady Madonna

Written by Lennon - McCartney

2:19 • Studio versionE • Stereo • 2015 mix - The placement of the vocals in the new mix confuses me. The backing vocals are spread around the stereo image, but they are centered the second time they appear. Likewise, the false horns are spread L & R the first time they come in and are centered the second time. Apart from that, the handclaps are at left (2015) instead of centered (1968), and the handclaps are at left (2015) instead of centered (1968). The song’s final note now comes to a complete fade, instead of trailing off to low volume and ending abruptly (as the original mix does).

Let It Be

Written by Lennon - McCartney

3:52 • Studio versionD • Stereo • 2015 mix - This is a new mix, but it mainly follows the single mix. The stray sound after “for though they may be parted” is absent, but Paul’s sour piano note during the final verse is present. The “oohs” pan from L to R the first time in the single mix, and then they stay at R; in the 2015 mix they appear at L & R and are stationary. There is an overdub right before the bridge that sounds slightly louder here. The guitar overdub comes in during the last verse at center and soft, just like in the single mix; however, the overdub moves to the right, and it sounds like it’s the second overdub now instead of the first; the single mix remains with the first overdub at center.

The Long and Winding Road

Written by Lennon - McCartney

3:38 • Studio versionE • Stereo • 2015 mix - This is Phil Spector’s 1970 mix with choir and orchestration. Considering the fact that they remixed “Let it Be,” one wonders why they didn’t remix this one … at least to put the orchestration further back in the mix (something that has been discussed since 1970).

From the press release:

THE BEATLES’ VIDEOS AND TOP HITS COME TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME

All-New Editions of The Beatles 1 Pair Beautifully Restored Promotional Films and Videos with Brand New Stereo and Surround Audio Mixes

Beatles 1+ Deluxe Edition Celebrates the Sight & Sound of The Beatles in 50 Films & Videos

London – September 15, 2015

After The Beatles stopped touring, and because travelling around the globe to promote new releases was impossible, the band increasingly made what could be described as “mini movies”. These pioneering promotional films and videos helped to define the way we have come to watch music, not least because The Beatles approached filming with the same ease and innovative spirit they brought to the recording studio, exploring new creative possibilities with infectious delight. Showcasing the band’s filmed work to accompany their 27 No.1, U.K. and U.S. singles, The Beatles 1 is newly restored and expanded in multiple configurations for global release on November 6 by Apple Corps Ltd/UMG.

The 27-track CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray pairs beautifully restored videos for each song, with new stereo and 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS HD surround audio mixes. The brand new Beatles 1+ celebrates their career in over 200 minutes through 50 promotional films and videos. This includes the 27 No.1s, with the restored videos, along with a second disc of 23 videos, including alternate versions, as well as rarely seen and newly restored films and videos; all include new audio mixes in deluxe CD/2-DVD and CD/2-Blu-ray packages. The 27-track audio CD is also being made available with new stereo mixes. A 2 LP, 180-gram vinyl package will follow. […]
