Not talking about the Dexter version…

I have a small YouTube channel on collecting Beatles. A viewer e-mailed me swearing he had a USA Capitol stereo version of the LP that does not have the false start on “I’m Looking Through You “. He says he knows it’s stereo and the USA running order of songs.

I don’t think it exists, but you never know!

Are there ANY international versions of Rubber Soul with the USA track list but the have the UK stereo mix? Japanese? Canada? Mexico?  He says his dad got it back in 1966 in New York (visiting from South America)

Hey @jerseyboymusic, you might want to check out the Wikipedia page for The Capitol Albums, Volume 2. There were issues with the initial release which may have caused your listener’s confusion. Also according to the article there has never been a release of the USA CDs containing the George Martin mixes, only the Dave Dexter Jr. versions. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Well…. he got it in 1966… so looking for the vinyl copy. But thanks for your input!

I was wondering if there was a run of duophonic versions… fake Capitol stereo from the mono mixes, but can’t find evidence of that

Oh, I got it jbm. The question about the initial Capitol CDs has come up here before, so I just made an assumption. I know there are some variations in the vinyl RS releases depending on the source, but I’ve never heard of the one you mentioned. Btw-I checked out your channel. Being from Cali (with Beatle boots on the ground in the sixties), your comments about the original US albums blew me away! They almost never get any respectjohn-lennon-salute_gif

Thanks so much! I lived in Nor Cal for quite a few years (my wife is from there).

I feel like the Beatles discography, like so many other things today, are subject to revisionist history. Like “Meet The Beatles isn’t what the band, as artists, intended”. Oh.. come on! They were happy just to have their music out there… George Martin came up with the mixing and running orders, especially on those early British LPs. And Dave Dexter did a great job presenting them here.

There were some clunkers here in the US, but they are the albums I grew up listening to and still cherish!

We have strong connections to what we grow up with. I understand how you feel about the track lists. I first listened to the UK versions, and thus that’s how I like to listen through the songs. But even then as a purist I consider the UK albums canon and always will.

I do agree.. the UK LPs are the canon albums and always have been! I consider the US, as well as German, Japanese, Dutch and other international compilations (yes, I said USA compilations because that’s what the USA LPs are) as great additions to the Beatles catalogue.
