1991 remix: slight tweaking of the 1990 remix; In the mix from 1990, Karen’s lead is a little heavier, with a fatter and subbier reverb-tail, whereas the mix from ’91 has a better balance in terms of the outboard effect on the lead…

Chris May says: 
Regarding the SACD surround mix: No major changes, again another great remix. The oboes in the intro are mixed opposite, first oboe in rear left, harmony in front. Drums are also brighter. French horns seem to have a stereo effect. Very nice!
