EMI/APPLE CORP/UMe/whomever actually LISTENED to the fans and did not use the CD mono masters for this release! They went back to the precious, original master tapes and cut the records through an ALL ANALOGUE path! Using the notes from the original UK cutting engineers, these records are as close as can possibly get to a UK (or even Australian) first pressing of The Beatles' mono catalogue.
The quality of the actual pressing plant is where I have a huge problem. Two copies I received of Rubber Soul looked like old scratched up copies from the 60's. Amazingly, they made little noise, but visually it is just horrible and not what I expect from a band new, sealed item. That is something to be aware of. Every single mono record I have purchased, and the red, blue and even the new stereo Sgt Pepper, have been scratched, horribly off centre and even warped. They may have gotten the cutting right, but the quality of modern day record pressing plants sure as hell is not what it was in the 60's-80's.
Now if only they would do the right thing and release all analogue copies of Abbey Road and Let It Be. Actually, if only every single reissue was done from analogue master tapes with all analogue cutting paths, the world of vinyl reissues would be a far better place.
I enjoyed the mix. I have nothing to compare it to, but other than for purists and major enthusiasts, I'd imagine most casual listeners will find it sounds great regardless of the source of the masters. It really did sound fresh, as though it had been recorded much more recently than 1965.
Clean pressing, good sound. Sleeve is a little sparse by modern standards, but then I expect it's meant to be a replica of the original.
