The differences arent that major on MMT apart from some effects here and there. IATW has probably the biggest but nothing that makes me have a preference.

 

To be honest i cut the album up and rarely listen to it in track sequence, same with Yellow Submarine.

Sometimes I prefer listening to MMT in stereo but with my mix of I Am The Walrus and the Anthology version of Your Mother Should Know.

I don't understand the question. Do you mean format as in vinyl/CD/mp3?

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I take it that the format in this case means whether you would like to listen to the songs in mono or stereo

Personally I don't really have a preference, and I don't listen to that particular album too often. Why, it has I Am The Walrus, Fool on the hill and Blue Jay Way ( I like it) plus the singles, I don't know. Perhaps the opening song kills it for me

Just from my parents. It's not so expensive, is it?

Wasn't it around 100 euros?

Just make sure your parents get it from a reputable place, there are a ton of sites online that are flogging very difficult to identity fakes which are very poor in all areas; packaging, sound, feel, spelling mistakes. A lot of people have been fooled and left disappointed.

Stereo is my preference but i do listen to the mono version of this LP sometimes (I listen to The Beatles in mono all the way up to Sgt Pepper).

I only listen to the UK EP, so it's mono all the way!  ** Not true, I've got the mono & stereo versions of the EP and the CND LP on my iTunes! a-hard-days-night-paul-11

But by 1967, it's Stereo all the way for me! a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Stereo is the way to go, especially with this album.  You're really able to pick up on all the hidden sounds.
