The Beatles Remastered: More Cowbell

I've endlessly pooh-poohed enhanced, deluxe, remastered, or otherwise tarted-up reissues of existing recordings, but I have to admit that the new enhanced edition of Rubber Soul sounds better than the CD version we've had before, and the clearest point of distinction comes in "Drive My Car."

It now has more cowbell.

If you happen to have the two versions available to play side by side, you should be able to hear a difference here, and if you can't, your audio playback system may itself need more cowbell.
