Does anyone know why George Martin didnt remix Yes It Is, Im Down, Day Tripper and We Can Work It Out along with the Help! and Rubber Soul albums in 1987? Surely if the original album mixes werent quite right for the '87 market then it would be the same for the singles as they were mixed at the same time.

Small point that picks away at the back of my mind. Plus the original stereo mixes are far better in my opinion.

No idea. It's a good point though. I'm sure there are interviews from BITD where George explains his decision.

My theory is that George Martin wasn't asked to be involved in the mastering of Past Masters, so he never thought of remixing songs that he hadn't any knowledge were being released. And Joe, here's an interview of Mr. Martin from 1987: http://abbeyrd.best.vwh.net/kozinn.htm
