Beatles' US albums CDs set to majorly disappoint by not using all available US mix variants.  Even allowing for the wish not to use fake stereo versions or "Dexterized" reverb-added versions, they should still have used all alternate pukka mixes.  All they needed to do was do a little research on the internet.  Next time, they should let the fans have a voice.   Angry

I have at long last got round to transferring my Beatles Remastered Mono into flac, and noticed that Yellow Submarine was missing. Seems that it was a straight mix down from the stereo version, so it's something I won't be buying for the fourth time... I did find this article, which some of you may find of interest.

BTW, it's brill to hear the Fabs again, I'd not listened to these for a couple of years. Wanted to keep the stupidly expensive Box Set in as good a condition as possible. Now I can listen all I want, in lossless...

Correct - Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road, and Let It Be weren't mixed for mono, though some countries did sell mono versions that were simply folded down from the stereo.

All of the Beatles songs from Yellow Submarine (though not the George Martin orchestral tracks) have been released in mono versions on The Beatles In Mono set anyway.

So are those versions genuine mono mixes or fold downs (notwithstanding that there are genuine mono mixes of the earlier songs on other albums)?

Genuine.  Apple have seemingly vetoed issuing fold-downs, duophonic versions or other kinds of fake stereo for any recent Beatles CDs.

Not really an odd one out - it was released before Yellow Submarine.  EMI were still making mono albums in 1968.  By 1969, when Yellow Submarine came out, LPs were stereo only.

Odd one out in so much as it is part of the Mono box set, and available separately as a remastered stereo too.

Not sure what you mean - the same is true for all of the earlier albums too, from Please Please Me through to Sgt Peppers.

The trainspotter's guide to The Beatles US Albums set - what's bin did and what's bin hid:-

http://wogew.blogspot.co.uk/

Even I can't spot the difference between the UK and the supposed US stereo mixes of And Your Bird Can Sing and remain unconvinced about that one.

It's not for me either. I may fall for the films as and when they are available though. I really would like to see the Shea Stadium concert released, HD, the lot. Oh, and Let It Be, in HD too... Not the grainy stuff that can be seen on Youtube.

Me too and I'm a great Beatles fan. I also  agree on the films. Unfortunately I think Macca probably doesn't want Let It Be to see a release because it shows the cracks in the Beatles relationships and the famous scene with George where he clearly is fed up with Macca's domineering. But I think it's a great film and is a real insight into how things were towards the end. The film contains some fabulous music which shows just how creative the Beatles could be even with things falling apart and I think all the Beatles show through as likeable, creative individuals but growing apart. The roof top concert is wonderful with that amazing version of Don't Let Me Down. Come on Macca, sign that release document!
