* Many rock recordings in the 1960s that were released in both mono and stereo versions have stereo mixes with substantial differences from the mono version apart from using stereo sound. The artists themselves concentrated more on the mono mixes, most notably Music/TheBeatles. The stereo mixes were generally slapdash affairs with lots of GratuitousPanning and mono mixes are prized by collectors, though stereo mixes are all that's generally available on modern formats, even with their inferior sound.

* Music/{{Weezer}} have a couple of individual songs that were given a slightly different mix for their single versions: "Say It Ain't So" received a subtle remix, which the band liked enough that they replaced the album version with it (the remastered deluxe version of ''The Blue Album'' has the original mix as a bonus track). "Pink Triangle" was given a subtle remix for its release as a single, including a newly recorded bass guitar part, played by someone from outside the band: It was decided the bass line needed some revising, but usual bassist Matt Sharp wasn't available due to work with his other group The Rentals, so Scott Riebling of Letters To Cleo filled in.

"Pink Triangle", meanwhile, got a noticeably more polished mix for it's single version, presumably to offset the album's much more raw production.

* A non-artistic example: Any album that uses samples will have to be remixed if the original mixes are found to use uncleared samples. As more sample-based artist are aware of what they can and can't do, this is nowhere near as bad a problem as it was 15 years ago.

*On John Denver's first 2 Greatest Hits album, he re-recorded any song that was not a major hit, and in the case of the first volume of Greatest Hits from 1973, the re-recordings are often much preferred by many fans over the originals. Only the 3rd volume of Greatest Hits consisted of 100% original recordings. The original recordings that appear on the first 2 volumes of Greatest Hits were the major hits.

* In 1987, Music/ZZTop released a BoxedSet titled ''Six Pack'', featuring not-remixes of six of their first seven albums[[note]]''Degüello'' was not included[[/note]] - The band opted to remix the songs and add drum machines and occasional guitar effects, with the intention of making their early work sound more in line with their more commercially successful 80's material. Fans of their more straight blues-rock 70's sound were not happy. ''Tres Hombres'' and ''Fandango!'' had their original mixes restored for individual re-releases - if you buy a new cd copy of any of the other early albums, chances are you're getting the 1987 remixed version, unless you buy "The Complete Studio Albums" boxed set on Rhino which consist of all original mixes of everything.

* Some compilation albums, due to the label being unable to secure the rights to the original masters, have the artists re-record the song as closely to the original as possible and some of the re-recordings even include updated for the time arrangements. Examples of this include Gordon Lightfoot's 1975 best seller "Gord's Gold" which features half re-recorded United Artists material and half original Reprise material, and Donovan's best selling "Greatest Hits" from 1969 which included updated for the time re-recordings of his Pye/Hickory hits "Catch The Wind" and "Colours," until the 1999 remastered and expanded reissue which reverts to the original Pye/Hickory recordings of those 2 tracks.

* The Warner Bros. CD issues of Peter, Paul & Mary's 1960s catalog is remixed from the multitracks by Lee Herschberg and Peter Yarrow to make the music sound more "current" for the time with added reverb, etc. in 1989. The "Very Best Of" compilation and the "Carry It On" boxed set on Rhino revert to the original mixes and audiophile labels have issued some of their albums on SACD using the original mixes.
* Gordon Lightfoot's 1975 best seller "Gord's Gold" which features half re-recorded United Artists material (such as Canadian Railroad Trilogy, Early Morning Rain, etc.) as not only does UA/Universal still own the 60s catalog, the sound of the 60s material didn't match the 70s catalog in style, and half original Reprise material including "If You Read My Mind," "Sundown," "Rainy Day People," "Carefree Highway" among other tracks. The 1988 compilation "Gord's Gold Volume 2" contains the bulk of the material in re-recorded form, including "The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald," with the 4 original recordings of classic recordings being "Make Way (For the Lady)," "Ghosts Of Cape Horn," Baby Step Back," and "It's Worth Believin'." The "Songbook" boxed set and the "Complete Greatest Hits" compilations on Rhino revert to 100% originals including the UA material being licensed from EMI.
* Donovan's best selling "Greatest Hits" from 1969 included updated for the time re-recordings of his Pye/Hickory hits "Catch The Wind" and "Colours," until the 1999 remastered and expanded reissue which reverts to the original Pye/Hickory recordings of those 2 tracks being licensed from Sanctuary and adds 4 more songs that charted after the compilation originally came out. This compilation is also notable for including the full length "Sunshine Superman" in stereo at 4:32 while the original mono single, which appears on the "Sunshine Superman" album, is 3:15.
