Yeah, too bad they didn't make the uncut version of "It's All Too Much " available -- particularly since the 'lost verse' is included in the movie  ahdn_paul_01.  Either way, this album still has the only true stereo mix of "Only a Northern Song" that's out there.  Now, if we could get a true stereo mix of "I Am The Walrus "...  a-hard-days-night-john-3

  I think a true stereo is out there, released on the anthology dvd. Would have to check but im sure its been discussed before.

  

It's on the Magical Mystery Tour DVD and Blu-Ray.

What is happening? And tell me how you've been.

I found the The Mammoth Book of the Beatles analysis of the albums and singles to be dreadful. I read that section over a period of time in Waterstones for free as i figured it had to get better as it went on and it didn't, recently came across it on sale for £5 in a bookshop and refused to spend the money.

Yes, it's extremely patchy (though there are good and interesting parts, to be fair). I bought it only because it was £2 in HMV, (closing down), and I like to add to my Beatles paraphernalia when possible, (especially when cheap). It's supposed to be a rich anthology, but in fact most of the articles and reviews are written by Egan himself. It does have a usefully fulsome discography at the back, mind you.

He is similarly cynical about the Anthology CDs, stating that they could have been limited to a reasonably epoch-encompassing double or triple CD while jettisoning much 'chaff'. But that's for another thread...

  

Eleanor Rigby and having a full stereo version of It's Only A Northern Song are fabulous, All You Need Is Love and Hey Bulldog aren't. Both were improved greatly by Giles and Sam for 1+. I love the idea of the Songtrack though, A full soundtrack list of songs was something fans had been asking for decades. I have no problem navigating my way through it in any case.
