The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour MFSL Audiophile
[MFSL 1-047]

Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's

The success of the first Beatles half-speed master eventually brought a second and third. Capitol's Magical Mystery Tour was an interesting choice for the next release. With catalog number 1-047 and released in February of 1981, Magical Mystery Tour also proved to be a rapid seller for MFSL, who by now were doing a terrific business with most of their albums. To my ears, MMT seems to fare a bit better than AR, perhaps indicating that Mobile Fidelity was improving their process. However, since they were still using sub-masters obtained from Capitol, the last three songs on the album are in rechanneled stereo -- as they were on the US LP. Later that year, MFSL began to release Chromium Dioxide ("type II") cassettes, and for that release (C-047) true stereo copies of the three songs were obtained from German Odeon. Therefore, "Penny Lane" and "Baby, You're a Rich Man" saw their first true stereo release in the United States on the MFSL cassette. The cassette was popular, too, and was eventually reissued with a new cover design.
