Bumps and skips?

I own the stereo Box set, and while they're awesome, there seems to be a few skips on some of the songs. I know that there are more, but these are just the first two that come to mind:

On Help!, the song, just 2 seconds in, right before the first "dun, dun, dun" of the guitar.

On Yellow Submarine, (on the Yellow submarine album, not Revolver) at 0:34, right before the chourus. It sounds like he says "Yellow sub-rine.."


Anyone elses remasters messed up, or am I just unlucky? And if the former, are there any more?



(By the way, this would go in this section, right? a-hard-days-night-ringo-4)

I haven't experienced this on the set - the discs may just need to be cleaned slightly.

I've lost some of my earing ability thanks to earphones, but to be honest, I don't notice those skips… you might want to upload a sound capture to check it.

I own all of them, and a problem has yet to accure, I bought them idevidually, if that matters. See about returning them, if you can.


Good luck. ;)

This happened to me too! But only on "Abbey Road" and one or two others, and, mysteriously, only when I tried to play 'em on my computer for the very first time. I'd insert the disc, first track skips uncontrollably. I hit the eject, re-insert the disc, and it'd play fine. Weird…

(Note that I don't own the box, just RS/R/SPLHCB/MMT/AR individually. And further note that this skipping didn't occur with any other CDs I bought around the same time, just those 2-3 remasters, so I'm pretty sure it's not my CD-rom drive that was at fault.)

Does it still skip if you import the songs onto your computer and play the songs from there?

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

It only skipped the very first time I put it in. I immediately ejected it and re-inserted it, and it played fine. And it's been fine ever since. Go figure...
