Hello everybody.  I recently purchased the mono box set, and I really like how Rubber Soul sounds in mono, especially since the 2009 stereo remaster sounded quite uneven to me.  The original '65 stereo mix included in the set doesn't sound too bad to me either, but what do all of you think?  Do you prefer mono or stereo when it comes to Rubber Soul, and which of the stereo mixes do you prefer?  Also, does anybody know why the 2009 stereo remasters of Help! and Rubber Soul use the 1987 remix instead of the original master tapes.  Thank you.

George Martin didn't like the original '65 mixes when it came to releasing the cd's for '87 so he did new ones which have become the standards ever since. There is an interview floating about from that time with George M speaking about it, i have no idea where. 

I prefer the '65 ones.

I also prefer the 1965 Stereo mix of Rubber Soul. Too much reverb added in the remix from '87. 

Regarding mono versus stereo, I love the mono mixes. They always seem to have a little more punch to them.

I prefer the mono mixes of every Beatles album that has them (everything up to and including the White Album).

A two second search brought it, well one, up.  Sorry, i should have done it earlier but was otherwise engaged.
