Sgt Pepper 50th remix.

Discussion in 'music' started by chris@panteg, May 26, 2017.

  1. I will never understand why people would rather spend hours talking about a album they haven't heard instead of just buying a copy and just listening to it?

    I have to agree Barry, but people do spend lots of time talking. I bought the vinyl version and I have been very impressed with the results, the team who worked on this project have done a first class job. After listening I decided to dig out all my other versions of Pepper, I found another nine ! A 60s mono, a 70s UK stereo, a German Apple stereo, the vinyl box set mono, the mono and stereo CDs from the box sets, a very early cassette , and two '87 cassettes, one U.K., the other a US Capitol release. I discovered that my vinyl box set mono version has the Help! album labels, has anyone else encountered the same? If I had to keep just one I would choose the mono box set vinyl just ahead of the original 60s mono, just because it's not so worn. How about the rest of you, which copy would you keep?

    When it is an album like this where if it interests you you inevitably already have a copy it makes sense to do some research before buying again. Certainly opinion over on Steve Hoffman's seems is fairly split. Some love it, others describing the CD as brick-walled, hard and lacking any dynamic finesse. The vinyl seems better received but not without some caveats.
     
  5. Tony,
    The Hoffman forum is full of muppets that wouldn't know a good album SQ if some bugger hit them in the face with it.
    Loads using rubbish TTs and systems that still put fingers all over records when making there Youtube films.:rolleyes:
    In my own ears i trust.

    It's no 1 in the album chart, incredible with 37,000 sales and 5,200 on vinyl.

    BBC R3 Jazz Line-Up are doing a Sgt Pepper Reimagined edition today at 17.00.

    Has anyone looked at the 24bit version? Is it available outside the download card in the box set?

    I don't really have a proper copy so am tempted with the Vinyl, even more so because I heard Giles Martin on R6 the other week and liked the two naked tracks they played.

    Not really sure that a J37 warrants a 24 bit transfer - or any other tape machine of the period.

    Just watched it. Excellent IMHO.

    Agreed, some really good analysis there, a lot of things I'd not have picked up on.

    Is that the one I heard being advertised on R6 the other day, with quite a detailed look at how it was recorded with Howard Goodall?
     
  15. Tony L

    Tony L Administrator

    Yes, that's the one. It focuses as much on the musical construction as recording. Very interesting stuff.

    Cool, will try and catch it.

    That one's running on PBS in America tonight too. I missed the first broadcast but they're repeating it at midnight.

    I bought the 2-disc package, but haven't played it yet.

    I had a dream last night that the new 50th editions had sold out and my only hope of getting one was if they reissued them. I haven't bought any 50th as yet, so maybe I should...
