remastered versions! It's a German wiki, but that doesn't matter, take a
look at the wave graphic, it's about the song "Something" from Abbey
Road. I never heard remastered Beatles, since I bought my records when I
was a child, my records even don't have a bar code on the covers.

Most, if not all Beatles recordings have a much better sound quality
than Axel F., it's excellent engineering. Be aware that for real music
the kick isn't the most important instrument, as it seems to be today.
It's not less good mixed, it's better mixed for the original versions.

It's a misconception that e.g. a little bit noise is less good sound
quality. Good sound quality does mean that the sound is transparent,
even if you mix it on a 4-Track analog tape, limited to 14.5KHz. Sound
from 2 Hz to 22 KHz without noise is not equal to a god sound quality.
The good sound quality is the transparency of the sound, the room, the
dynamic. IOW a loudness war mix takes away all the quality of the
original Beatles recordings and IMO codecs with so called inaudible loss
do it in a similar way.
