New remix is a joke. Except for Oh Darling, that one is pretty cool. I want a new analog remaster of the original mix on vinyl! The remixes rock a lot harder. I liked that approach for Pepper and the While Album though the mono mixes are still my go-to for those. I don't like that approach for Abbey Road. It loses its spooky atmospheric quality here on all but the rockers, and there just aren't that many rockers to beef up. Jeremy BuntingOct 1, George P likes this.
Location: New Zealand. I prefer the remix, the clarity it brings to the table makes a real difference for tracks like Come together and I want you She's so heavy.
Doesn't mean I'm never going to listen to the original mix again though much like with the previous remixes I'll listen to whichever version I feel like at the time. CraigBicOct 1, To me the remix plays like a live-in-the-studio performance of the Abbey Road LP, not the album itself. The performances are very alive. There's lots of definition to the instruments. Powerful bass and drums.
The vocals seem very "present" and in the room. All of which is really cool to hear, in my opinion. But the original mix is overall more musical to my ears. All the parts are a balanced part of the whole. It's a finished studio creation, not just a performance. This is all subjective. I grew up on the original mix and the remix is bound to sound not-quite-right to me. I don't mind that it exists and, like I said, I enjoy hearing it.
But it's an adjunct to the album, not the real thing. At least, that's the case for me. I wish the original mix was included in the set and that the remix was presented as just part of the overall package, not the centerpiece.

Despite the simple idea of Something (Take 1 V2) - The Beatles - Crossing Of Abbey Road (CD) crossing the street, two or three hours were scheduled for the photo shooting. The musicians normally didn't want to meet in the studio until the afternoon.
The production of the Abbey Road album is in full swing, and it's been work-filled days and weeks. Because the photo session only lasted about ten minutes, the Beatles have time on their hands. There's not much interest in small talk — or any kind of talk anymore.
