All Things Are Subjective
As a side note...My future wife purchased the original LP Set in 1971 as Her 1st gift to me...And a wonderful gift it was!! How could I not marry her after such a display of impeccable taste! I'm Still with her after 49 years.
OK - now the the review...There is much controversy regarding this remix...Some folks hate it, some love it and some are on the fence. It's all subjective - your ears, your system, your expectations are all different.
I, for one, enjoyed the remix..and I feel that all tracks were improved in sound quality. Some more than others. Much better bass, clearer vocals, a reduction of the Phil Spector "Reverb / echo" cleans up, what in my view, was a muddy, busy recording . In particular "Wah Wah" and "Awaiting On You All" are, although not perfect, much clearer with better separation and hence, are much easier to listen to. "My Sweet Lord" sounds more intimate - with a reduced Cathedral sound giving way to a more immediate presence . I love BOTH versions.The quieter songs really shine - George's voice is more up front and sweeter yet crisp and clear....and I am very pleased with this 50th Anniversary issue. I have a decent system powered by my McIntosh 2205...I have a sub-woofer, and the bass as some have reported, is not overpowering at all... I am happy with this purchase.Read full review
