In my opinion Dr Ebbetts sound the best. Better than the Purple Chick or the Millennium Remasters.
Hi gary910! How are you doing? I agree with you, THE BEATLES Dr. Ebbetts/MFSL CD collection (2008) is the best overall sound quality EVER! In my opinion, this collection sounds better than THE REMASTERS.
There are so many different versions of the Millennium Remasters, there are some that sound better than others while there are some that sound exactly the same. Do you have THE BEATLES Millennium Remasters (Red Label in front of album) that is the Audiophile Archival Recordings using the 24-Bit Mastering process? This collection was manufactured on genuine original CD's (Not CD-R's) in Russia in 2004 by RMG. In my opinion, this collection sounds fantastic!
I own the Purple Chick collection version but it does not come close to any of the Dr. Ebbetts or Millennium Remasters versions. In my opinion, I wish that Dr. Ebbetts would meet with George Martin, Geoff Emerick, Steve Hoffman and Alan Parsons, than all five of them can meet with Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MFSL) and set out to make new master tapes on the complete BEATLES catalog. Doing this, we will hear THE BEATLES the way they were truly intended to be heard. Imagine what THE BEATLES would sound like if this happened. Then again, its only wishful thinking. Take care.
