Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated
"Was this the perfect pop/rock record? Who would say no? Forget the studio
innovations littering the grooves. The songwriting was and remains stellar.
Everyone steps up their creativity... The reissue’s transparency and depth
surpass that of the original and there’s more detail to be heard... The more you
listen to and appreciate the mono mixes the less you’ll appreciate the lateral
separation. Another perfectly flat, perfectly quiet record, too." -Michael
Fremer, www.analogplanet.com, Music 11/10, Sound 10/10!
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 Beatles in mono: This is how most listeners first heard the group in the
1960s, when mono was the predominant audio format. Up until 1968, each Beatles
album was given a unique mono and stereo mix, but the group always regarded the
mono as primary. The Beatles’ nine U.K. albums, the American-compiled Magical
Mystery Tour, and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks are released
in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork and newly
mastered from the analogue master tapes.
In an audiophile-minded undertaking, The Beatles’ acclaimed mono albums have
been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road
Studios by GRAMMY®-winning engineer Sean Magee and GRAMMY®-winning mastering
supervisor Steve Berkowitz. While The Beatles In Mono CD boxed set released in
2009 was created from digital remasters, for this new vinyl project, Magee and
Berkowitz cut the records without using any digital technology. Instead, they
employed the same procedures used in the 1960s, guided by the original albums
and by detailed transfer notes made by the original cutting engineers.
Working in the same room at Abbey Road where most of The Beatles’ albums were
initially cut, the pair first dedicated weeks to concentrated listening,
fastidiously comparing the master tapes with first pressings of the mono records
made in the 1960s. Using a rigorously tested Studer A80 machine to play back the
precious tapes, the new vinyl was cut on a 1980s-era VMS80 lathe.
Manufactured for the world at Optimal Media in Germany, The Beatles’ albums are
presented in their original glory, both sonically and in their packaging.
