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)

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.)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
