i can't remember who, but someone once said if the 'beatles' recorded the first page of a telephone directory it would be a 'number '1' ...back then i'm pretty sure they would have been right.
ordinarily i would score this album '5' as would i with all their 'cd's' however as i said with 'sgt pepper' ....yes the album is enhanced and yes you can hear the difference, the question is....is the enhanced versions worthy of purchase if you allready own the 'cd's' anyway ? .....i do believe it's something you'll need to find out by perhaps purchasing maybe you're favourite, then compare, if it works for you, then why not ?
of course if you're a 'pop' fan just about to collect their music for the first time or in fact you have not yet replaced you're 'vinyl' collection....then i'd say go ahead.
this is one of the '4' re-mastered i have purchasd, probably because it contains some of my favourite reletivly early material from the 'beatle' era...songs like 'no reply' 'i'm a loser' 'baby's in black' 'i'll follow the sun' and 'i don't want to spoil the party' all written by 'lennon and mcCartney' and in my opinion at that time the five mention would allmost certainly have toped the singles chart.
'john and paul' are allmost certainly among the most successful song-writing partnerships of all time, not forgetting 'george's' writing contribution during that era.
wether you buy the re-mastered versions or not, i believe all true 'pop' fans should own most if not all of the 'fab-four's' contribution to the history of 'pop and rock n roll'
