Sourced From The Original Master Tapes And Cut At Abbey Road Studios
Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl
THE BEATLES ON VINYL – DONE RIGHT!
For years the most anticipated vinyl reissues have been from the one, the only Beatles catalog. Finally, after a delay due to the meticulousness of the remastering process and assorted other hurdles, that day has come. Look for the start of shipping of The Beatles Stereo Box Set and individual titles beginning Nov. 13!
These titles update the Beatles classic albums, which have continued to sell strongly and attract new generations of fans long after the quartet disbanded in 1970. For this reissue, individual titles were sourced from the original master tapes. Then each title was copied into 24-bit/192 kHz files and cut to lacquer at Abbey Road Studios. It was a painstaking process with maximum attention paid to every detail.

Arguably the first psychedelic rock album, REVOLVER was praised for its musical experimentation–the Indian sounds of “Love You To,” the Motown-inspired “Got To Get You Into My Life,” the backwards guitar in “I’m Only Sleeping.” “Tomorrow Never Knows” was the most radical departure from previous Beatles’ recordings for its skeletal bass/drums propulsion enhanced only with tape loops (contributed by all four Beatles and added in the mix-down process), more backwards guitar, and an eerie John Lennon vocal. Still, the Beatles’ experimentation grew out of their songwriting, which had matured beyond formula pop. “Tomorrow Never Knows” was inspired by the Tibetan Book of the Dead, Harrison’s “Taxman” was a bitter diatribe, and McCartney’s “Eleanor Rigby” was a bleak portrait of loneliness. Balanced with upbeat songs like “Good Day Sunshine” and “Yellow Submarine,” REVOLVER proved The Beatles were not mere pop stars, but musical artists in search of new sounds and ideas.
