The first Beatles cd i got was the Yellow Submarine Songtrack album. I really liked the songs sound quality. However when i came to purchase the remastered version of Sgt. Pepper i felt awfully underwhelmed, not by the songs (which are awesome and its my favorite Beatles album) but by the sound quality which lacked the depth of the YSS album. I only recently learnt that the YSS was completely remixed for the originals.

So my question is should they have remixed all the albums like they did for YSS, because frankly I can't tell the difference between the new remasters and the cd mixes made in the 1980's.

I can also hear the difference with the remasters; they are cleaner sounding, brighter, meaning that you can hear sounds that were otherwise obscured with the '87 cd's.

As said above keep the original mixes available and then remix if desired. Let It Be Naked also had remixes but since there was a lot of editing and alternate takes its not the same and remember that the available to buy separately Help! and Rubber Soul stereo cds are the '87 Martin remixes. You need the Mono Box to get their original Stereo mixes (I still find that daft).
