Where Can I Gets It?: You can get it online from The Beatles Official website. Or pretty much anywhere the Beatles are available. I recommend getting the Box Set. It’s a cool $130 bucks but probably worth it. I’ll be getting mine soon.
Why Should I Listen Now?: If you really love The Beatles, If you love sound engineering, if you love music in general. But seriously, this new mix will blow your mind. I wish I had drugs….
Story of how I found this: Honestly, I didn’t really know about this release until about a few days ago. I am always interested in remixes and remasters. I think it’s really cool that we can go back and mess with things from the past. But in a tasteful way of course. I really loved The Doors remix of LA Woman, but really didn’t dig The Brendan O’Brian Remix of Pearl Jam’s Ten. So I come in with my doubts of course. But, honestly this remix by Giles Martin is insane. I can hear things I couldn’t before. And it was still true in some sense to the original mix. Hearing John Lennon’s vocals on Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds so clearly almost brought a tear to my eye. Anyway I’ll shut the hell up and let you have a listen to it yourself.
