About this deal

S. The Beatles were becoming good at overcoming these limitations, filling up all four tracks of a tape, then mixing them to a single track so they could have three more for additional overdubs. It is a strong improvement over the earlier stereo mixes, revealing many new sonic details which were previously not possible. I’ll go out on a limb here and say that of the two, Revolver is actually the more influential – put aside the hype for a moment, and ask yourself what was really done on Sgt. I hope the WingNut HAL software they used to separate the tracks for the remix continues to improve its fidelity, because the mono version really blows away the rest of the set. The use of E7♭9 vocal harmony always sounded wonky to me so I don’t think it’s actually sung out of tune.

Perhaps a better strategy would be to hire some young kids to play all the Beatle parts over again and re-sing it too. You realized that everybody was living separately, they didn’t play live anymore, so all they did was meet in the studio. Martin confirmed that the "demixing" technology had improved considerably by that point, and credited the work done by Peter Jackson's audio team in the development of The Beatles: Get Back for making the new remix possible. For any of you who listen on headphones or simply prefer hearing a somewhat more balanced soundstage, it leaves something to be desired.

I expect they’ll release all the Beatles’ early albums in remixed stereo now, like you, I can’t wait for “Rubber Soul” remixed. Speaking to Rolling Stone in July 2021, Martin said that the software was "getting a lot better" and that he was "constantly looking at how we could approach it if I ever get to [remix] Revolver or Rubber Soul, early albums, which a lot of people want me to do". While The Beatles’ musical performances were exceptional as always, in terms of instruments they really hadn’t progressed far from the lead guitar/rhythm guitar/bass/drums configuration of most of their early songs – compared to later albums, the instrumentations are still relatively sparse. But when you start listening to the early versions of these songs in their embryonic states — via the two full LPs of outtakes dubbed Sessions — you hear the evolution of the rhythms and beats he brought to the table. And I’m not just talking about core Revolver tracks like “Tomorrow Never Knows” — which is a landmark in its own right — but also amazing songs like “She Said She Said,” where the lift of his drumming is just magnificent.

Parts 1 and 2 of the Special Edition's songwriting work tape for "Yellow Submarine" reveal the song's evolution from a rather sad verse sung by John over acoustic guitar — "In the town where I was born / No one cared, no one cared. From “Taxman” to “Tomorrow Never Knows,” The Beatles’ REVOLVER has been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and Sam Okell, and sourced directly from the original four-track master tapes with audio brought forth in stunning clarity with the help of cutting-edge technology developed by the award-winning sound team at Peter Jackson’s WingNut Films Productions Ltd. Fortunately, while producing the Get Back documentary Peter Jackson’s crew perfected the art of separating sounds on a recording, and while that technology was proprietary, Mr.Saved my life — or my soul, at least — as a teen in England in the ’80s, and still think it’s the best ever 37. In transition from songs that were designed to be played live to ones that could never be played live, “Revolver” is explosively adventurous yet focused and concise. Revolver’s music is the result of the band members having space to breathe and reset their creativity.

While struggling with a soundtrack commission in 2014, Martin asked his father if he had ever experienced a similar crisis of confidence. Yeah, that’s true, Pet Sounds is a masterpiece, unlike any other album ever released really, and it did influence Revolver. And Your Bird Can Sing may just be one of the Beatles most underrated songs in their entire catalog, and while Dr.It is no exaggeration to say that that the landscape of classic rock would look vastly different had The Beatles gone down in a plane wreck or something in early 1966, leaving Rubber Soul as their final musical offering to the world. Having this stereo mix will help ensure Revolver will survive into future music-listening platforms where more upfront vocals and clearer music are essential. Iteration and fearless experimentation were always Beatles hallmarks, but Revolver found the band accelerating headfirst into innovation. The book is wonderful (though it has some minor facts wrong) and a really fun read from the handful of pages I've gone through. I'm baffled as to why UMe/Apple decided to go with GZ for this box, as all the discs are noisy even after wet/vac cleanings, have tight spindle holes, and are slightly warped.
