  7. yes- i have a copy of Dr Ebbetts CD - don't know which one - but i used to LOVE to listen to his re-masters of the Beatles - i highly recommend his works - too -
  8. i sent a copy of you post to one of my former piano students who is pretty much "into" the Beatles - he sent this back to me to paste here for you to read - ((Hi Ray, I don't read that board, but please copy/paste this response: ----- This is not correct. There are a few things: 1. The stereo set was *not* compressed in its entirety. There are some tracks to which no compression was applied, and others where compression was only applied to one channel (typically, the one with the most transients). In general, the amount of compression/limiting typically resulted in a volume boost in the range of 1db-3db. Less than 1.5db of compression gain in not audible. There are a couple of issues with the stereo set, but the compression isn't a big one. 2. There was no compression applied to the Mono set. None. You can try to determine this through comparisons with other masterings or vinyl pressings, but you will get incorrect results. Those masterings will may appear to have higher transients in some instances due to the amount of EQ that was applied at the frequencies dominant in the transients. EQ was not (as far as I know) applied to the Mono set. These were done flat. 3. As a final consideration, keep in mind that the original mixes (especially the mono mixes) were heavily compressed and limited. It many cases, the limiting was rather extreme. Revolver is a good example of this. If they applied 1db-3dbs of further compression, it would be virtually unnoticeable, as all of the peaks were already squashed. It is the same as bein upset that somebody drew on your blue wall with a blue crayon of the same shade. ))
