Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” as the consensus choice in the 1990s, when its influence manifested in artists as diverse as Oasis, the Chemical Brothers and Elliott Smith. Take note of those neat, mostly four-beat tambourine hits that help propel “And Your Bird Can Sing” and arguably lift the song, making it a clear standout track.

Meanwhile, GTGYIML just keeps sounding squarer with time (as do most of the Paul tunes on the album). It is refreshing to hear a different generational perspective of how this musician became a Beatles fan. It’s a little hard to tell, but I think Paul is the main offender here, quite uncharacteristic of him really. Revolver is my second favorite album, (after Pet Sounds, 1966 really was a great year for music wasn’t it? This new technology seems to be even more refined than the process used by The Beach Boys some years back to make a true stereo version of “Good Vibrations” (which only existed in mono back in 1966).Kite” was new, but the cosmic majesty of “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” had been presaged by “Tomorrow Never Knows”, the orchestrated “She’s Leaving Home” is actually considerably less impressive than “Eleanor Rigby”, and the Indian-flavored “Within You Without You” isn’t really much more Indian-flavored than “Love You To”. S., where the album launched the band’s final tour, its initial impact was muted by the ruckus over Lennon’s widely misunderstood remark that the Beatles were “more popular than Jesus. To be honest I never knew it was a yawn, just thought it was a back round noise the Beatles left in the mix which they often did.

My favorite section of the book has to be the excerpt from Klaus Voormann’s graphic novel, Revolver: Birth of an Icon (see unboxing video below). I also suspect Peter Jackson’s amazing demixing software didn’t always work as well as might be hoped – my theory is that is why the guitar, bass, and drums we mixed together so closely on “Yellow Submarine”. Andy says: Revolver is the moment where the Beatles turned their back on the hysteria and announced they weren't going to tour anymore, but instead were going to concentrate solely on The Music.Because the album was recorded on two-track master tapes, this would not have been possible if not for the innovative audio separation technology developed by Peter Jackson’s team for “ The Beatles: Get Back,” the director’s recent documentary about the making of “Let It Be.

However, full disclosure, while I am absolutely delighted with the new mixes, I was a bit underwhelmed compared to what I expected, and it took me a little while to sort out why. Overall, it's still enjoyable, but this is the second box set in a row with some manufacturing / pressing (or mastering? Instruments were often crowded to one speaker while vocals and the occasional stray tambourine were lumped together on the other. It’s like a great artist who can [draw] four lines on a page and you know exactly what it is,” he says. Check out the bass on “Taxman”, especially the flurry of bass notes in the “If you drive a car…” section – simply amazing, and I’d never been able to hear them before.MM adds: If you want to read more about the minutiae behind the mixing and de-mixing process for the Revolver box set vinyl directly from Giles Martin, go here to read Mike Mettler’s in-depth wax-centric interview.

It’s an album unified by confidence and bare-faced youthful enthusiasm more than anything else,” Martin says. This new stereo mix is quite remarkable in many ways, especially when you take a step back and think about what they’ve accomplished here.With each studio album they recorded, the Beatles sought out new ways to express themselves and push their music forward. If you do have that vaunted vinyl edition, or perhaps are one of the lucky ones to have an original UK mono pressing, then this inclusion may be extraneous for you. That depends – are you a Beatles music collector who views the special edition hardcover book as a bonus, or a Beatles book collector who views the special edition CDs as a bonus? If John said, ‘I want to sing from a Himalayan mountaintop,’ or George said, ‘I want to play more sitar and tamboura,’ they’d go, ‘Yeah, great!
