  • The Beatles (White album) is getting a remix.

    No links or anything, but Giles Martin confirmed on BBC2 today this album is being remixed.

    Why, other than an attempt to generate more revenue? How many times has the White Album been remixed already?

          They won't be getting more of my money. Love 'em, but I'm done.

            It was a rhetorical question. I know why. I think the original stereo version is just dandy. I love the one in my BC-13 collection. How are they possibly going to make it better? More jigger pookey in the digital realm? I doubt it will come straight from the analog master tapes without getting kissed my digital somewhere in the process.

              I'm pretty sure it has never been remixed; "all" official Beatles releases have been from the originally approved mixes and masterings, either stereo or mono. Of course, there are the handful of exceptions: the 1987 Help and Rubber Soul stereos, and the upcoming Sgt. Pepper's. I agree with you; we have the stereos, and we have the monos. Something new will not be an improvement, it will just be "different", and probably not better.

                When all the Beatle stereo albums were re-released on CD, it was years after pain-staking digital remastering so that should include the White Album.

                  Humm....
                  I kinda doubt the tape I have of the White Album could really be improved upon.
                  Especially if they plan to do a remastering in the digital realm.

                    They were not remixed, and the "remastering" was attempting to be no remastering, i.e. sounding as close to the master reels as possible in terms of EQ, compression, etc.

                      I think rbbert is right.

                        Too bad there is no SHM of the beetles that would be great. SHM may be digital but it's still great music and quality. My songs in the key of life is amazing. I think it may be a remix it has sounds the others I have do not.

                          We might be splitting hairs because where does remastering and remixing cross over?

                            I'll just stay with my 1968 version. At least its real.

                              The original stereo mix is excellent and its also a fine recording. No need for a stinkin remix.
