Mystery Tour: stereo re-mixed for CD?

Hi everyone,

 

Back in 1981 I got my first copy of the 'Magical Mystery Tour' album.  It was the stereo album, on the orange Capitol label.

 

Being a musician I have a good ear for the finer details of a mix.   On the album's title track for example, I can remember (from the last two or three seconds of the fade-out) a gentle, upwards glockenspiel swish.   Nowadays I own the stereo CD, and the swish is mixed out.

So I was wondering if the glock was on the original stereo mix from 1967, or was my 1981 copy a later re-mix?  

 

If the glock *was* on the original stereo mix, was the track re-mixed for CD?

 

The Wikipedia article for the EP/LP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M…..stery_Tour) states that four tracks from the original stereo releases were fake stereo:  'I Am The Walrus', 'Penny Lane', 'Baby, You're a Rich Man' and 'All You Need Is Love'.   The latter three were re-mixed for true stereo in 1969/71, and apparently appeared on subsequent re-issues of the album.   But there's no mention of the album's 'film songs' being re-mixed.

 

Does anybody know anything about this?   I bought my CD back in the 90s;  perhaps later CD re-issues have the glockenspiel?

 

I'm obsessing over trivia I know, but I'd love to determine if the original stereo mix from '67 has been issued on CD.

 

Kind regards,

 

Jason
