The "new" version of the album contains some really cool stuff and apparently missing a few "overdubs" that were made to the mono masters the lead guitar in "My Generation" being the most noticeable one! There are a few other "out-takes" which I hope get released one day - for example, there's a version of "Out In The Street" with this very cool feedback sliding guitar sound - which is very different than the released version I'd love to see them go back to the studio, remix this in "wide stereo" band correctness be damned and for them to fix the pitch on John's horn as well as for Pete to overdub the missing guitar on "My Generation" - very carefully retracing his steps or perhaps it's possible to extract this electronically from the mono version?
Modern technology and all As to the songs, I love them all with the exception of "Please, Please, Please". I've never been able to listen to it The style on this album is very different than everything that came thereafter. These tracks were previously released on "Who's Missing" and "Two's Missing" and. The true stereo tracks on this "deluxe" album are mixed differently than the HD mix or Super Deluxe versions. For the most part, the stereo separation is fairly narrow - almost giving you the impression that the recordings are wide-mono.

Personally, I prefer wide stereo separation at the expense of "artistic correctness", but it certainly can be argued both ways. There are no noticeable sound variations between any of the current releases. Some interesting things to note It was discovered that a few songs had overdubs added to them directly into the mono mixes and therefore, those overdubs were not recorded on the original master tapes.
Two of the these songs "My Generation" and "A Legal Matter" had additional guitar parts added to the mono mixes and that's why they are added to the end of the track listing see below. Apparently the vocal track that was used on the French "I Can't Explain" EP was the original recorded vocal, and the common version which appears everywhere else seems to have had its vocal recorded directly into the mono mix, and therefore absent from this collection of songs.
Mono isn't a "natural" sound. We were born with 2 ears and hear in stereo. Whether the band actually completed true stereo mixes by sometime in is unknown.
However, the mono mixes were complete and "finished". While all of the earlier Japan CDs have varying degrees of "nice packaging", it's the CD which sounds the best of the Japan bunch. Coincidentally, Polydor Germany released a single CD no bonus tracks version of the album, remastered from the same tape used for the "Phases" box version. The coincidence is that the Japan CD and the Germany CD, came from 2 different source tapes, were remastered by 2 different people and remarkably, sound just about the same which is really good!
Go figure Interesting variations in sound quality due to the pre-mastering. Often fans like to second guess why a song was mastered one way or another. By listening to these CDs, you get a feel for some of the decisions that were made.
For example, in some cases, Keith's cymbals are so loud that they crash right through your ears - they're too loud. The released version's mastering "fixes" that, giving the same section a smooth sound. The Shel Talmy Tapes. There is about 2 hours and 45 minutes of material, which includes released versions of the songs and several outtakes of the same.
The sound quality of all of this material is excellent. Note: the information in the brackets [ ] are relevant to the take and mix.
