Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 3/500!
Many tracks on Revolver are marked by an electric guitar rock sound in
contrast with the previous folk rock inspired Rubber Soul. Revolver reached #1
on the UK and the U.S. charts. Features "Good Day Sunshine", "Got To Get You
Into My Life", "Yellow Submarine" and "Eleanor Rigby".
"The album, which was released in August 1966, made it thrillingly clear that what we now think of as "the Sixties" was fully and irreversibly under way... Revolver, finally, signaled that in popular music, anything any theme, any musical idea could now be realized. And, in the case of the Beatles, would be." - www.rollingstone.com
The original Beatles catalogue has been digitally re-mastered for the first time
for worldwide CD release. Each CD is packaged with replicated original UK album
art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner
notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with
a brief documentary film about the album.
The albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at EMIs Abbey
Road Studios in London over a four year period utilizing state of the art
recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining
the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result
of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since
its original release.
The stereo CD includes track listings and artwork as originally released in the
UK. Within the CDs new packaging, booklet includes detailed historical notes
along with informative recording notes. These stereo CDs will be housed in a
three-panel eco digi-pack with 14 page booklet.
A newly produced mini-documentary on the making of the album, directed by Bob
Smeaton, is included as a QuickTime file on the album. The documentary contains
archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The
Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.
"For the new remasters, the engineer went back to the original 1960's analog master tapes. Remastering is about working with, sharpening, amplifying, clarifying, and enhancing what are already the settled (or established) facts of the original mix. A listening session in early June at Electric Lady Studios in Manhattan confirmed that this is exactly what has been done. In A/B comparisons with the 1987 CD versions, the Beatles' records sounded more alive, more spirited, with greater dynamic range, and a new spaciousness that was very apparent... These new releases are an audiophile's dream - on good gear, they do sound much improved." - Robert Baird, Stereophile Magazine, October 2009, Vol. 32, No.
