Transfer & Restoration by Prof. Stoned



Transferred from the withdrawn 606-1 matrix. This original pressing is not that hard to find as the below blurb suggests but it is damn near impossible to find a copy without playwear, even when it appears to be in mint minus condition. After auditioning multiple copies in great visual condition, I finally did find one on which TMK actually sounded great and that is the copy used for this transfer. It's an interesting mix that differs quite a bit from its replacement; the strings (or proto-samples if you will) and vocals are more prominent and it has a string fragment not heard on remix 8.

P.S. (April 2020)


From Joseph Brennan's Usenet Guide to Beatles Recording Variations:

basic recording- 6 Apr 1966
additional recording- 6,7,22 Apr 1966
master tape- 4 track

    [a] mono 6 Jun 1966.
    UK: Parlophone PMC 7009 Revolver 1966, matrix XEX 606-1.

    [b] mono 6 Jun 1966.
    UK: Parlophone PMC 7009 Revolver 1966.

    [c] stereo 22 Jun 1966.
    UK: Parlophone PCS 7009 Revolver 1966.

Mono [a] is extremely rare, and is believed to have been manufactured on only the first day of UK pressing. Most copies have matrix 606-2 or 606-3 on side B, and are the standard version heard on all copies of other countries' pressings. [a] is mono remix 11 while the standard version is remix 8. In the rare [a], the vocal is louder and clearer over the effects, the fade is slightly longer and has more piano, and the effects are faded up quite differently (whereas [b] and [c] are pretty similar).
