Dry Brett Kavanaugh:
Though the entire sound widened and improved significantly, Paul’s bass is ridiculously loud in all the remixed albums, imo.

Good to know Manabu.

Hmmm. Wonder why that happened?...

KevinP:
Because bass guitars are louder in pop music made since the 60s, so, as part of the updating, they made it louder.

The bass on the Beatles' records may even have been quieter than many recordings even in the 60s. Although they mixed with hi-fi in mind, they were aware the music would often be heard on transistor radios and frequently tv.

Even in the original recordings, Paul’s bass got louder, if somewhat acceptable, after Sgt. Peppers. I like his bass lines (ex. Something, Oh Darling, With a Little Help), but the bass in remix is too loud and counter-productive.
