Hi gang,

 

Spent some time yesterday doing critical listening to some Beatles material. Ended up comparing "It's All Too Much" 2009 remaster to the Yellow Submarine Songtracks 1999 remix (I also did an extensive comparison of "Hey Bulldog" on the two aforementioned albums).

The verdict? 2009 remaster kicks ass on the 1999 remix!

 

The 1999 remix sounds incredibly pale and wimpy compared to the high octane 2009 remaster. There is clinical clarity to George's vocals on the 1999 remix that completely ruins the song's extremely ecstatic overjoyed mood. The dirty and extremely raunchy overdriven guitar has been toned down, cleaned up, and castrated on the 1999 remix. Go back and hear that better-Hendrix-than-Hendrix-himself distorted guitar on the 2009 remaster -- and keep in mind that it was recorded BEFORE Hendrix came to prominence.

 

And hey! -- what happened to the bass on the 1999 remix? It lost it's slam that is oh so delightfully present in the 2009 remaster.

 

Perhaps the worst part is the messed up percussion, that somehow just does not cut mustard on the 1999 remix. On the glorious 2009 remaster, it's the dirty, noisy, messy and above all impolite percussion that really makes the song. These guys (the 2009 remasters crew) did an incredible job refurbishing such aural orgasms as the Beatles recorded back in the spring of 1967!

Sorry, messed things up, and wanted to say "It's All Too Much", not "It's Only Love". Can the admin help me rename the topic?

 

Thanks!
