That's very interesting, John. I'll have to see if I still have the supposed
Rarities file that someone sent me years ago. I say "supposed"
because I'm wondering if it was doctored/fixed up/smoothed out prior to
it being sent to me.

I just found my file, and it's a direct dub from the Rarities LP from start to finish. The ending doesn't sound "tacked on" to me, despite Capital's claim on the back cover of the LP, and I didn't notice any major reverb differences in the trumpet. If they did tack on the ending, it must have been remixed from the multi-tracks. The ending is in true stereo and quality-wise it matches the rest of the track.

The Rarities LP is a composite. Listen to the LP on a good
system, a trained ear can hear this transition.

Sorry, but I have to agree, I can hear the splice at the end that tacks the
trumpet ending onto the stereo mix on the Rarities LP. The fidelity of the
trumpet ending just is not as sharp as the rest of the song.

Huh, I just don't hear it on my system. This is a dub of the last 20 seconds from a Rarities LP I recently obtained:

Penny Lane Rarities ending

I think I can hear the tape splice... there's this little "thud" right before the trumpet starts. And that was my thought, too... that the trumpet doesn't sound quite as clear as it does before that point. I'm not sure what to think... they did a very good job if it is spliced in.

If it is spliced on (and it probably is, as they specifically say so on the
back cover) I agree that they did a nice job. As far as I'm concerned,
this doesn't even come close to being what I'd call a bad sounding
splice in the era of tape-and-razor-blade editing.

I have not listened to it in a while, but I bought Rarities the month it first came
out, living in LA at the time. I also have the infamous boot of the Penny Lane
Promo 45, which I bought at Beatlefest '79. My take is the same as Brian, I can
hear a difference in the fidelity of the trumpet between the ending and the
solo, there is a certain tinniness and bit of distortion on the end trumpet, that
is not present in the solo.
