it’s almost worth the price of the whole set to have a pristine copy of Goodbye. Gile’s mix here is better than it seems because Abbey Road was the Beatles album that least needed a remix. Also Martin Sr.’s strings on Something are one of the best things he ever added to a Beatle record.

Folk far clever than me have analysed, compared and computerised ‘Goodbye’ and have come to the conclusion that Apple simply used a bootleg copy, and in their opinion better copies of it exist. It wouldn’t be the first time Apple has done such things; the promo ‘Penny Lane ‘ on the deluxe ‘Pepper’ is, without doubt, a much poorer source of what is out there circulating on a number of fan sites and collections, and they had to fix ‘Live At The BBC ‘ due to their fiddlings and using inferior sources for the 1994 release. Heck, many of the officially released BBC recordings were simply taken from bootlegs. 

It’s not surprising in truth and due to how such things were handled back in the day, unsurprising. Far superior sources for the solo videos exist than what have been officially released, and it doesn’t when Apple (and others) try to be smart only to end up ballsing it up (attempts at colourising the Beatles for example).

Sun King (Take 20) is my latest addiction. Such a great representation of the melody. Peaceful brilliance.

I’ve just seen that the Super Deluxe Edition of Abbey Road is currently selling for £8.99 on Amazon UK*

*At least I think it is.

Click Here

I wish the White Album would go down to a more manageable price

Edit: It was – but it seems to have gone up again. I am very confused now.a-hard-days-night-john-3

Probably a temporary glitch which was quickly fixed. Happens occasionally and most sales fail before shipping is completed.

A few people managed to get their hands on a copy at that price (it lasted for about 30 minutes).
