A Revolver Remaster is a tough sell for fans because the album sounds so perfect, i mean its absolute perfection. Sgt Pepper , The Beatles, Let It Be all have controversial song choices or exclusions as well as multitrack tapes that can be re-applied with modern technology. I can’t get into the mind of Giles, but why would you want to mess with a recording so perfect? The perfect melding of technological and musical innovation that only George Martin could put his finger on the controls.
Edit: When i say “re apply with modern technology” I mean there was a huge opportunity during the Pepper remasters to take what everybody is so impressed by, the fact that they recorded it on a 4 track, and mixed it as if there was no track limit.
We need a rerelease with some session tracks though
Could skip the remaster (tho it should be remix as that’s what the others were) and give us the sessions. I’m sure I could cope if we got two extra discs of outtakes instead of mono and stereo remixes.

I’d much rather hear session tracks than another remaster personally.

Someone just left this comment on the Carnival Of Light page:
I read in a youtube comment that a snipped from Carnival Of Light is used at 3:15 in the song Something /Blue Jay Way on the Love album. Could that be right? Those sounds there indeed do not sound at all familiar. I also read somewhere else they might come from Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite. Any thoughts on that?
What do you reckon? The noises could be from any number of sessions, and without hearing CoL it’s probably impossible to tell, but it’s an interesting idea.

I’m thinking it’s from Mr Kite.

I don’t think I’d ever thought about it consciously, but I think I assumed it was added by Giles Martin when mixing to add to the Cirque Du Soleil feel. Does anyone know if every single sound on Love is from a Beatles recording, or were there at least some instruments and sounds added?
I think it's great you're going through a phase,
and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple
