Now I' listening to the Long awaited SACD-SHM Transfer of this Album. The text informs me, that the "DSD flat transfered from the 2010 Digital Remaster."
I compare this SACD with the mfls-cd UDCD 760.
First Impressions:
The (funeral)bell on the SACD comes with a tape hiss, the sonic of the bell is not first rate. The voice itself is very clear an the the crying at the end of the track is impressive. The sonic of the (funeral)bell is more clear, and the drums by Ringo is better in the mfsl-transfer.
Track Hold on: The track on the SACD sounds perfect, the recording Level is a bit lower than in the mfsl-transfer.
I Found out: The MFSL sounds more powerful, the instruments are well transfered, for example the rough guitar.The SACD seems to have more bass.

Over all I must admit, the SACD is not quite on the same Level as the MFSL-CD. The Differences are very (very) small. But if you have the mfsl-copy, you don't really Need the SACD, which is very expensive.

Keep in mind that the SHM-SACD uses the original mix, while the MFSL is the Yoko-approved 2000 remix, so that alone might account for some of the differences you heard. In this case, you aren't really comparing apples to apples.
