"Baby You're A Rich Man"
Hi. Hoping one of the Audiophile experts can help me on this one.. I am upgrading some things, and I read that the only true stereo version of "Baby You're A Rich Man" was on the UK cassette version.. Can someone verify if this is in fact true? Did the 2009 Remasters use this or is it just the cassette version that remains the true stereo version? Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

Good question, can't wait for a correct answer on this!

That's the tough part about having a Beatles' collection if you're really trying to be a completist (if that's even possible). I have hundreds of albums and singles, and EPs from different countries, released at different times, etc., etc. There are so many mixes and remixes, and some are exclusive to different formats, aargh! It can drive you nuts... Then you also have to beware of "new" things that pop up on recent bootlegs because with the software that is out there, there are 'outfakes' galore that are bogus. There is probably a book out there (imagine that, a book about the Beatles), that has every song released but with special notation as to every type of mono/stereo mix and the various anomalies on different formats, countries, and all that kind of stuff... There are some people, God bless 'em, that have an encyclopedic knowledge of these releases, and some of them reside, or at least used to, reside here.

According to Jeff Russell the 1971 German release of MMT was the first true stereo mixing, however, sans echo effect. Roger Stormo claims second stereo remix was done from scratch for the 1999 Yellow Submarine Soundtrack. The 2009 remasters supposedly uses the 1971 German stereo mix. For the truth herein I take no responsibility! :rolleyes:

Hello Hib! My long lost floral friend! Thanks for the info. I have a Dr. Ebbets silver CD of the Hor Zu German album. People have told me on this site that the 1987 CD release of MMT was from the German master, which I still find hard to believe, but I guess is true from what they say.. As for the "Yellow Submarine", just wanted to verify it is the Soundtrack and not the Songtrack.. Thanks!

:laugh5:It was mixed for the 1999 film Yellow Submarine and has supposedly an updated sound, whatever that means. It's whatever they called it released with that film. Yellow Submarine Songtrack soundtrack perhaps? Sounds nutty enough! :laugh5:
