I remember reading that the remaster was de-Spectorized. 

Is there a CD version that has the original wall of sound production? Is there more than one CD edition that does?

  

If they despectorized it in 2001 or whenever the anniversary edition came out, then I would guess my jewel case version is the original WOS production.  It's in a double jewel case and contains just the album spread across 2 discs split between side 3 and side 4.  Also the Apple Jam is in the right order.

  

That’s what I suspect as well. I don’t remember that CD sounding very good though.

I thought it sounded fine.  About in the same ballpark as the '87 Beatles CDs.  There were decent audible differences between that release and the remaster.

Somebody gave me the entire catalogue of 87 cds once. It was when I first really started listening. I ended up trading them in for a bunch of other Beatles stuff. I just didn’t like the sound—too muddy or something.

I do have the original Bangladesh CD because the newer ones are edited.

I'm filling in some gaps this month, writing a bunch of features I never got round to finishing. I've just published 6,500 words on All Things Must Pass , I'll do all the songs on the album next, before writing about Harrison's other albums.

thanks @Joe 

Despite all the Beatles literature I read, I always learn a bunch of new things from reading your articles. All Things Must Pass is an all time favorite of almost everybody, including me, so this is just what the doctor ordered.

Hearing George present some of these songs to the Beatles I can't help but feel Spector's production really overcooked the album in places. The beauty of the melodies gets a bit lost in all the instrumentation. 

When he discusses doing a solo album with John during the 'get back' sessions he kind of says he could probably just bash it out in a week as the songs don't need much work. I wonder what it would have sounded like if he had just produced it himself.
