‘Eleanor Rugby’ was finally fixed on ‘1+’ and sounds fantastic (tho I haven’t analysed the high/low ends on a computer programme whilst listening to the 3rd pressing of the Albanian vinyl).

But anyhoo, does anyone else get annoyed by the sudden change in the panning in the stereo mix of ER? Does anyone even know what I’m talking about??? Am I just crazy?! ahdn_paul_02


I came here to complain about the stereo mix on Apple Music. I don’t know much about the different versions of things, but I’m curious if the stereo mix on Apple Music is the same as the one @lovelyritametermaid  was listening to. The El of Eleanor (at the start of the song) is in both channels and then the rest is just in the right. So jarring!

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Yes, I know that one. It’s also on the latest (?) CD remaster of the catalogue, as well as on Spotify.

That was the version I listened to on Eleanor Rigby ‘s grave. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

One thing I’ve long liked about ‘Revolver ‘ is how it gathers and blends its many disparate “lead” instruments into a kind of subliminal uniformity of sound – like, we have beefy horns doubling fuzzy guitar riffs; and distorted guitars playing solo sitar-like runs; and violins and celli that have the bite and attack of guitars, etc.  And with that in mind, I was recently concentrating on the arrangement of the various stringed parts in “Eleanor”, and noticed how, during the “All the lonely people…” refrain, the cellos cover the melody and the violins provide the rhythm…And meanwhile, as for the violas, they hold a single sustained droning note the entire time – which is exactly how the Indian tamboura functions, as indeed it does in “Tomorrow Never Knows “. So there’s another case of blurring the lines between wildly differing instruments’ sonic impacts.

The following people thank Von Bontee for this post:

Ahhh Girl, Rube

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.
