Perhaps I need new ears....but I hear what might be an error in recording or remastering on "Getting Better" approximately 64 seconds into the song. Hard to describe; almost sounds like a severe scratch did back in the days of vinyl. Does anyone else hear this....or might I have a defective CD....or perhaps a medical/aural problem?

I hear it too....Its on both the 2009 Remastered (Stereo) and the First CD release...

You are correct. Speculation that it's from a faulty cable or amp. Check this out from

Someone gives a count in for the vocals. Other talking evident on left channel.

The word "teachers" has a double-track sound to it, as if an overlapped edit was performed. I'm sure Paul can't sing two notes at once like this! Listen for a lower vocal note than the one Paul sings, on the first syllable...

Distortion on the word "up".

More audible on right channel, edit in the word "Bett/ter".

Right channel, someone shouts "Better" under Paul's vocals.

Right channel, rising whistle, and a click.

Paul makes a verbal slip, "And you're doing the best that I can".

Odd sound (same as 1:26).

Centre, loud click.

Electric piano and cymbal/hi-hat do a "double skip", left side, as if it's a faulty edit. Doesn't sound intentional.

"Shhh ..." or intake of breath, right channel.

1:21, 1:26, 1:33
Sound (right channel). Coming from the guitar, possibly a faulty amplifier/cable, or maybe a very scratchy picking action!

What you are hearing is a sound recorded by John just before he died and sent to the remaining Beatles by Yoko. The remaining Beatles re-recorded the entire song around John's "new" sound in 2002.

Give us a break.

there are lots of problems.

a similar problem of a double track overlay happens in most stereo copies of Eleanor Rigby. After the double-tracked opening chorus, it shifts to Paul singing the verse. The first "Eleanor" starts double-tracked then fixes itself quickly. This was corrected for the YELLOW SUBMARINE SONGBOOK, but nowhere else. All the SUBMARINE tracks were improved in a way that they wouldn't be in the new "remasters" So were the tracks on the original #1, but not the new one. It's a bitch. See my review of PEPPER.
