The Beatles On Capitol Records

The Beatles On Capitol Records

lost Capitol mixes

For those not familiar with it, it is also known by some as the "East Coast" version. It is identical the "regular" US stereo version of the Rubber Soul LP in every way except that it has a layer of reverb across the entire album.

That's right. . . .Capitol reverb across the whole LP!

It is not dramatic, but it is very noticeable on specific songs where the vocals are completely or partially isolated.

Songs like "Girl" and "Wait" are particularly noticeable. .

It can be heard clearly on a song like "Think For Yourself," which normally ends cold and dry.

On the "Dexterized" version, there is a very definite echoey decay on that last note. . .
