Terrible mix. Much too loud. Avoid this one and get the mono version.

Now THIS is a remaster! The original stereo mix of Sgt. Pepper had significant issues, none of which enter into this new master, and overall, this is just a flawless piece of vinyl (or two). They went all out with this remaster, and this release in general. From the 1/2-speed mastering to the sturdy recreation of the original sleeve. The second LP is an excellent companion, and it's always great to hear Beatles sessions, particularly remastered Beatles sessions. But the real treasure here is Giles Martin's 50th anniversary remaster of the original LP. The precise and dynamic presence of each instrument is remarkable, and reverent of the original mono mix, but expanding it to a whole new level of sonic depth and clarity. Seldom do remasters truly astonish me. Frankly, they're more likely to frustrate, or downright infuriate me, than to impress, let alone astonish. The new stereo mix of Sgt. Pepper is nothing short of astonishing.
Agalas Agalas
Whoa! Now this is different, truly updated, and different. Mono, “Look oooouuut! Cause here she comes!...She ain’t no dancer!”. Giles goes boldly where George never had to, “fixing a hole where the rain got in”, in Stereo that is!
Forcestalker Forcestalker
This honestly sounds fantastic, just read the other posts to get the gist of it, one complaint though is that there’s a warp, it doesn’t effect the sound, but it’s still scary. I don’t know if the dog whistle works though, next time I can here my neighbor’s dog outside I’ll play it with the window open and update yall on it.

Excellent version! The stereo remixes are much better than the original stereo mixes. Totally clean pressing as well. The Studio Sessions LP is a nice novelty. The main attraction here is the fantastic stereo remix LP. Giles Martin has done it again!
furious ox furious ox
Wow! This really is fantastic! My only criticism is that it's been mastered very slightly on the bright side of neutral. But to be honest that may have more to do with the current characteristics of my system than the record. It really is a thing of beauty and I'd recommend that every collector own a copy.
IWAS IWAS
Must agree with what others have said, my uk copy sounds absolutely fantastic, totally clean, no pops or clicks, good volume, excellent sq. This is how vinyl should always be!
Skyway Skyway
My copy sounds amazing. No noise and the mix is actually different from previous versions. It's more like the Cirque du Soleil mix.
Beazezius Beazezius
Fantastic remix but awful pressing. The record is a little bit warped and you can hear a rumble on silent places of the record.The record is probably warped because there are a lot of materials and second record in very tiny cover.Don't see the necessity for a second record just to raise a price of the album.Who will listen to it more than once?It will be a better that there is instead of record some booklet with photographies and stories about the album.Shame on the record plant!
Grokinos Grokinos
"Who will listen to it more than once"? Lots of folks! I think it's very kool to have extras, and on vinyl.

I just received and played my USA copy, manufactured in E.U. (which I suppose may be a historical artifact if the Manufacture was in the UK and not in Europe, re: Brexit) I opted for this vinyl version because my CD player is out of service and I don't currently own a DVD nor Blue Ray player for the 6-disk cd set. I will get that later. Upon playing this vinyl set I was delighted. I had never listened to the previously released mono version so I didn't have anything to compare this with other than the 1967 US stereo vinyl and the 2009 remastered CD and 50 years of having this album ingrained on my brain. So, while listening and expecting parts of the music to be where I normally listen to them to appear, I was pleasantly surprised to hear new things that I had previously missed or that sounded new (a different angle) to me. It was like getting a new Beatles album. I am also pleased with the tone of the vinyl. Most striking are the drums being brighter and more up front, the tone and placement of the bass and clarity of background vocals. Also various instruments, especially guitar, that seem new. I gave this release ***** stars. I will comment on individual songs later.

When ringo hits that bass drum on Lucy in the sky...oooooooh weeeee!

My copy seems to have a pressing issue. My tone arm moves dramatically from side to side as the record plays. The label shifts the same as the arm. Doesn't seem to affect the sound . Does anyone notice this issue? The sound is awesome on this record. Super quiet. The mix is louder. More drums. Deafening, droning, single note on the piano during Getting Better. Seriously, it was hurting my ears! I like the louder drum mix. Vocals and harmonies jump out of the speakers. Beautiful! The stereo pan is evened out. A little more centered than the 2009 mix. A kind of like the wide pan on 2009 a little better. Maybe because I'm used to it..? Great detail to the packaging. This album was created for us Beatles heads to enjoy, so listen and have fun!!!
huckman huckman
You got a bad pressing. Return it and get a new one.
Steep Steep
Yup. First one I got was pressed a little off center, second one I got off center too, but not as bad as the first. Kept the 2nd one, didn't affect sound. Hate seeing the tonearm wobble tho
Άνουβις Άνουβις
I just received my UK copy and I'm listening to it as I'm reviewing it. I have 5 different copies of various mixes and editions through the years. This version is hands down a version that needs to be in your collection if you're a fan. Its like listening to it the first time all over again! I love it. Wished I would've bought 2 cause I'm going to wear this one out :-)
Captain America Captain America
Hah ! I did buy two copies ;) Keeping one sealed.

So I compared the two Sgt Peppers. The best I can say is that they are different. The new release is much more polished, less hiss and sibilance for example, but also less dynamic range. That is very visible looking at the two different wav files side by side. Side 1 can be a tossup but for side 2, I'll take the 1976 GB pressing. Within You Without You is way better on the earlier pressing and a little detail like the alarm clock in A Day In The Life is more present in the earlier release. The 1976 release is both brighter and bigger in the overall soundstage.Overall, the 50th is really nice, not disappointed, but not a must have just for the sound given the earlier release, which was a serious effort to reissue it using the best there was in the prime time of vinyl without the bs that comes with trying to keep up with demand when it first came out. Now the master tapes are 40 years older and it may show more than we would want to admit. All that said, if you don't have a quality earlier release, buy this, its worth it.I have the White Album from the same GB series and don't think I'll get the new one, given what it will probably cost and hearing the difference with Sgt Pepper. Magical Mystery Tour I might get because it would be a 100 % true stereo release. There never was one issued before in the US, including the 1981 MFSL pressing.
Skyway Skyway
While the overall mix and mastering is superb, still sounds weird hearing the record like this, I prefer the mono version, however Fixing A Hole sounds truly amazing on this stereo cut and this version is by no means bad, some parts sound incredible
Uranneavo Uranneavo
Astonishing record. I did not think it possible that a new Beatles record could surprise me, but this one could. The new mix is really great and is what it should have been for a long time. At least from the moment they began to remaster the record.I bought the Mono version a few years ago, which is also good, but this one stands in its own category. It is simply amazing.Beside the fabulous new mix it is also dead silent. No click, pop or hiss on the record. It could well be the best album on vinyl I have in my collection.I'm looking forward to what they'll be doing with "The White album" next year. Keep up the good work!

The left channel has a little more power than the right channel. Has anyone noticed it? Is it a defective of my copy? Thx
Arashilkis Arashilkis
No not defective. Its the way it was mixed. Not very different from the original mix in this regard. Numbers don't always mean what they infer.
Tebei Tebei
Beautifully remastered. Virtually no surface noise on the vinyl. I really don't have enough superlatives for how good this sounds. Worth every penny.
I love Mercedes I love Mercedes
Ain't that the truth. My copies just arrived and I'll be slicing the shrink shortly. Gonna rip once out of the sleeve and after a proper cleaning on the VPI and compare.
August August
It's NOT remastered. It's remixed. Big difference, but many people don't seem to understand ...
Acrobat Acrobat
Where do Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields appear? I don't have this yet, but can someone update the tracklisting to reflect this release?
Ceroelyu Ceroelyu
They only appear on the 2 CD version and the 6 CD 'Super Deluxe' version.
Amarin Amarin
They are on the deluxe box set, but not the 2 LP version. LP 2 of the 2 LP edition is outtakes and alternate takes of the album.
Kefym Kefym
Absolutely fantastic! I was skeptical of this release just being a cash grab, but I was so wrong. The new mix sounds incredible! I have never heard The Beatles like this before. This may not have been how the Beatles "intended" it, and I get it. . . I own the Mono release from a few years ago and it sounds fantastic in its own right. The thing is this mix creates a spaciousness, depth and clarity to the recordings that I have never experienced before. Paul's bass sounds stunning. Close your eyes and you can imagine the band right in front of you. I did not notice any pressing issues with my copy. This is worth picking up for any Beatles fan, or fan of music. You won't be disappointed. My only minor complaint would be the price of this album.
Feri Feri
Brian Wilson must be even more disappointed (or delighted) because this new mix. :-)
ZEr0 ZEr0
This stereo remix is fantastic. Mastered & pressed beautifully as well. 50 years ago indeed...
Twentyfirstfinger Twentyfirstfinger
It's at 33 rpm Ed. I've just replayed A1 and can't hear a pop on my copy at the point you mentioned breakawayrecords.
Ventelone Ventelone
is it a 45rpm or 33 rpm? 45rpm is a pain…
Dukinos Dukinos
Spend the money on this record, it's better than wasting it on drugs....beautiful stereo sound!!!
Nawenadet Nawenadet
Has anyone come across a defect on A1 about 3/4 of the way through the song where they sing "It's wonderful to be here..." there is a pop on "it's"? I opened 5 copies. 4 popped at that same point and one skipped.
DrayLOVE DrayLOVE
My copy does not have a pop or skip in that place.
Aloo Aloo
My open copy is clean. Very nice and quiet.
Xava Xava
Not in my copy. But the left channel has more power than the right.
Mr.mclav Mr.mclav
NO. I didnt found any defect on that point. Not any pops or crack. I bought one copy only
Moonshaper Moonshaper
I'll let you know. I just ordered two copies from Music Direct. Hopefully, the glitches are not widespread through the entire run. Should have them in my hands by the end of the week.
Nayatol Nayatol
Hmmm, not only is the spine upside down (from a traditional sense and different from my 3 other Capitol copies ranging from the 60s to 70s), but it says Sgt. Peppers vs. Sgt. Pepper's and why the need to put the unsightly '2LP Edition' on there? That's for the hype sticker. Music is all that really matters though and I'm hearing positive things.
Cheber Cheber
Look at the original UK press, the title is upside-down like that on the spine
Shadowredeemer Shadowredeemer
New mix sounds excellent, and half speed master really shows it. I'm very happy, this'll be my go to pressing!
Gosar Gosar
Ugh... they did it right the first time. Leave it alone :( Not a fan of this release, (although the demos are nice). Go and buy a mono original instead, you will enjoy it a lot more.
Kadar Kadar
I would like to know if you have actually heard this mix and compared to another pressing.

muh mono muh mono muh mono muh mono muh mono
Nalmezar Nalmezar
You are fortunate it's bass-heavy, listen to other pop recordings from the same era...no bass there.
krot krot
Oh and one more thing, the printing on the spine is upside down compared to all my other beatles albums.
Agalas Agalas
That's how the original was too, only vinyl in my collection to have the title printed like that.
Welen Welen
I don't agree that it is bass heavy, sounds just right bass wise.Test played on a Pioneer PL-115D with M95HE (jico stylus). Some tracks are a lot better sounding than others on disc one, day in the life is amazing (orgasm bit sounds re-assembled tho) where others sound really processed and too bright and wide for vinyl fans who want warmth. The processing on the vocals in some places sounds like the pitch has been raised, maybe an auto tune effect. This mix is for cd & digital surround technology rather than vinyl. I compared this album to the 201? 180g remaster and to a 80's pressing, and I've got to admit I like the 80's pressing best. Bit of a rip off, but it would of niggled at me if I had not bought it.
furious ox furious ox
Well well what can I say!.. Disc 1: fantastic remix! But With a few flaws, it's extremely bass heavy! And I seem to have quite a noisy press! During quiet passages ect you can hear the flutter & wow & some crackle between track's 1 to 4 on side one & the Intro into "a day in the life".. good to have the runout groove intact thoughDisc 2: very quiet! Big improvement all around on the noise, still very bass heavy, downside though they should have made an LP with all the additional rarities! That would have been cool, or even lock grooved the "Hum chord" Packaging: they should have lined the psychedelic sleeves & fitted the LP's in them! Overall it's a quality LP (Played on a Pioneer PLC-590 fitted with A&R Cambridge P77)
Winotterin Winotterin
On my system, the bass sounds great. I have an inexpensive AWAI unit Z-L520. I suppose one will hear differences based on the rig they have. The bass and drums on this new mix ARE different and one of the best things I like about it.
Kabei Kabei
The vocals on some of the tracks sound really grainy and processed on this 50th issue, with exception of a day in the life. I'm quite disappointed with disc 1. The second disc has some great session stuff on tho. Wish they had just released the second disc and left the first alone.
Lestony Lestony
Man, I am REALLY skeptical and often sick of these kinds of remixes/remasters. I definitely think most are just lazy cash-grabs and whatever, but this sounds amazing. Puts the past stereo mix to absolute shame. Really worth checking out in my opinion.
fightnight fightnight
Anyone know if this has the infamous inner groove like the original U.K. lp?
MOQ MOQ
Yes, as well as all the inserts and original sleeves.
Cells Cells
YES! The runout groove on side 2 does contain audio which pans from right to left!
