I'm not sure what the A.I. paranoia is all about.

The fact that you can use a computer to separate out single vocals, then remix those vocals to make the harmonies more effective, whilst keeping all vocals and instruments (especially drums) sounding clear, doesn't strike me as a particularly sinister use of software.

Technology is racing on, you can now remix a favourite album at home, I can't seem to inbed the video, but click on the link, it's very interesting:

I'm not fond of the new remixes, but that could be a result of having heard the way the songs sounded for so many years.

Ahem...embarrassment I love the new mix of Hey Bulldog.

Well, actually the point of my comment/question was not about A. I. per se, but rather about whether there was really any need to buy these albums if one already has the current re-masterings of every one of the individual Beatles albums. So far no reply to that one.

(I do have concerns with reference to A. I.'s susceptibility for use in creating fake news that could affect elections, but not about "tricks" with music recordings.)

The techniques used to separate out the vocals and instruments then remix them have newly been applied to most of the tracks on the red album and some on the blue.

The blue album has the most material from the Sgt. Pepper-through-Let It Be series of recent remasters.

The red album has many more tracks, the earliest hits, that utilize the software separations and remixes. If you want those tracks now, buy the red album. The sep-and-remix method was applied to the recent Revolver box set also.

The sep-and-remix method will doubtless be next applied to all the Please Please MeRubber Soul albums as well.

If you want only sep-and-remixed greatest hits, buy the red and blue packages. If you're willing to wait for entire sep-and-remix albums, like Revolver, they'll be here before too long.
