Capitol "butchered" all the US Beatle releases up to "Pepper", and, according to legend, the original "Butcher Block" cover, was a statement by the Band to that effect, but Capitol pulled all copies off the shelves, and gave us the "trunk" cover, shown here.
They finally corrected this, with this release, and gave us the original cover.
The US versions are what we, in the States, were all familiar with, so these new releases have value. But, Capitol did it again. The US masters were, sometimes, altered with extra reverb (Roll Over Beethoven), and distortion added, along with severe compression to give it a more "US" sound.
For these new cd's, they used, mostly, the recent remasters done at Abbey Road, but with the US sequencing.
Still not doing it right.
If they altered the sound then, we should hear it like that on these cd's, even if it sounds bad, because that is how it was then.
I, of course, prefer the correct sound, as I bought all the albums on Parlophone between 67 and 70.
If you want to hear the Capitols as originally done, old LP copies, or the now out of print "Capitol Albums Vol 1 and 2, cd's mastered from the altered Capitol tapes.
Side note, "Rubber Soul", the Capitol sequencing, is, by far better, as it flows much better, and has a different, more acoustic feel. The mono and stereo versions are different, but that is another story.
