About this deal

After hearing it, I could never listen to the original mix again, even if Paul’s lead vocals seemed off by a millisecond from the original – not much, just barely enough to notice. 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. The copyright in this sound recording is owned by Calderstone Productions Limited (a division of Universal Music Group)/Apple Corps Limited. Whiskey in hand, he listens closely, but after 102 seconds of dueling tape loops, psychedelic rhythms and John Lennon intoning lines from “Tibetan Book of the Dead,” he yanks the needle and goes to bed. This was only previously available through a Genesis Publications limited edition book from 2017, which has sold out.

This is The Beatles off the edge of the map, showing the rest of the world that there were plenty of untouched new vistas begging for exploration. I could go through every core Revolver track to give you a full stereo play-by-play, but I would hate to preclude your own individual joy of discovery when you get to listen to the new stereo mix yourself.Having this stereo mix will help ensure Revolver will survive into future music-listening platforms where more upfront vocals and clearer music are essential.

After listening to the two “Sessions” CDs that offer alternate takes, rehearsals and demos, I was somewhat disappointed. MM], and that designation of perfection will always be bestowed upon the original mono mix as constructed by The Beatles with original producer George Martin in 1966. Yes, to get that oddly lethargic implied stoned swagger that made “Rain” so hypnotic, the Fabs actually recorded it really fast, in an almost proto-punk power-pop manner — hey hey hey, The Beatles go “Gabba Gabba Hey! All the new Revolver releases feature the album’s new stereo mix, sourced directly from the original four-track master tapes.The new Revolver stereo mix on vinyl certainly pays homage to the original mono — which, of course, was priority one for the band in 1966, as many of you probably already know.

To wit: there was quite a bit of white paper-packaging dust on the inner sleeves to the mono and stereo albums included in the Revolver Super Deluxe Edition set. Revolver: Special Edition is an expanded reissue of the 1966 album Revolver by the English rock band the Beatles. The Beatles' final Revolver recording session took place in Studio Two on the evening of June 21, 1966 into the wee hours of June 22, just one day before the band traveled to Munich to start their international summer tour. Given the limitations of what they could do at the time, it is perfectly fine, and no doubt has its charms.

The piano chords and overall vibe of the song still feel a little stilted, which is why in my opinion the Give My Regards to Broad Street version is the only time Paul redid a Beatles song and made an improvement on the original. It was a turning point in the history of rock music, obliterating barriers and demolishing boundaries, and pointing the way to the best that rock music would have to offer. Check out what an immersive experience “Yellow Submarine” has become – it has been remixed twice before, but never before have you felt the waves washing over you in the first verse, or found yourself in the center of a dinner party where “our friends are all aboard”, complete with clinking glasses and casual laughter. 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.
