Here's what someone said at another forum:
"OK, in the interest of looking into the original poster's question, I broke out my remastered In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida CD (yes, I bloody own it...) and gave it a listen. Sure enough, at around the 45 second mark the vocals seem to fade slightly down in the mix and do a little right-left channel wiggle. They do seem to remain down in the mix for the rest of the first section. I'd suspect that right-left wiggle might sound more pronounced in a pseudo 5.1 mix. So I don't think it's your rip, I think it may have been a mixing engineer sampling some of the bands recreational goodies."
So it may not be the rip.
Um, no comment on the remake.
