I'm going just go ahead and be a fuddy-duddy here:  you certainly did well with what's available, but it still, to me, sounds like a bunch of artificially extracted stuff put together.  It lacks the air that having discrete multis recorded simultaneously in the same room should have.  Not to say I'm not happy you're doing this, but I think there's no substitute for remixes from original tape.

I only take a critical bent here because I've a huge advocate for Wild Honey being remixed.  I've heard some really stellar remixes Linett has tried, and to me, they're just mind-blowing.  This mix is novel, but I think a real remix from the masters would change the way people thing about humanity and reality.

yeah i'd love a remix of Wild Honey.  I think it'd "get it" more.  stereo mixes do wonders for me in this album.

Sonic killer! Would be good to have a try at Smiley Smile, wouldn't it? Generally, stereo wins mono hands down. In my very humble opinion.
Mono works really well on sparsely produced stuff, like rockabilly, but stereo really helps densely produced stuff like "Pet Sounds". So I don't know if stereo would make much of a difference on "Smiley Smile", but I'd sure like to hear a stereo "Wild Honey".

I hear what you mean, I think. It's a bit flat sounding- I had also been thinking there was no space in the sound (or "air" as you put it). I put a little echo on it before adding it to my ipod playlist.

IIRC, Wild Honey generally sounded like the air had been sucked out of the room-- sort of like Smiley Smile with a backbeat. 

This stereo mix sounded spot-on to me.  The bass sounded so freaking deep it was almost unbelievable (in a good way), but that might've been the mp3 player adding eq-- but I doubt it was.

Sorry I took so long to comment; only now got to hear the stereo "Darlin'."

VERY nice! Seriously, I wish you'd give us a hint as to how you did it other than just telling us Adobe Audition. Smiley  (Can the same thing be done with, say, Audacity??)

My only gripe: the EQ....too middle...could use a little more high end...have a feeling that it might kind of bring out some of the digital artifacts if you did that, though, know what I mean?
