How come the original stereo mix of I Am The Walrus called RS6 wasn't debuted in the United Kingdom?

Because a copy had been taken to the US by Capitol Records' Voyle Gilmore on 7 November 1967, and they began pressing copies. The Beatles/George Martin later decided that it wasn't a good mix/edit, and it was redone for the UK release on 17 November.

Was that the mix used on Anthology 2 or was that also different?

You mean the final stereo mix made on 17 November shows two extra strokes at the beginning at 0:00?

Every time I click on this thread I'm hoping there's talk about how awesome this song is, but I suppose I'll start. If there's one thing about John Lennon that sets him apart from any musician...ever is that he has incredible staying power. This song is the finest example I think because it takes an awful lot of listens to really appreciate how cool and out of this world this track is. Think of one song that is this inventive and weird and yet still manages to stay relatively catchy, I can't think of any. "Oh, untimely death!"

Wait! I almost forgot. The rhythm track was removed from the mono mix only on "I'm Crying" first and second parts, but one of them was restored when RS6 was made and another was restored when RS25 was made. Right, guys?

1- I could not agree more. A quote from the man himself (you may have heard/read this in Anthology) - "I Am The Walrus is . . . one of my favorite tracks . . . because it's one of those that has enough little bitties going to keep you interested even a hundred years later."a-hard-days-night-john-7
2 - "Sit you down, father; rest you."

This is one of those songs that, when I hear it on a radio somewhere, I just stop everything I'm doing and listen. I've been at many a party where I've uttered the words, "Sssssshhhhhh – Walrus is on".

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I Am The Walrus Completely in True Stereo Found! It's not the LOVE version! It is on Magical Mystery Tour Deluxe Volume 1 by Purple Chick! Apparently it's the anthology mix but I don't see how. It really is in true stereo the whole way through! :D
