Description

I expect they’ll release all the Beatles’ early albums in remixed stereo now, like you, I can’t wait for “Rubber Soul” remixed. I think, as comments here suggest, the only real base against which you can judge the Beatles is the Beatles themselves.

The marvelous string arrangement of “Eleanor Rigby” was hampered by the violins and violas and cellos being all piled on top of one another, elbowing each other for space in the small part of the center of the stereo field available to them. I hear you about Lennon’s three songs not being “necessary” as I’m not as inventive or creative as so many other songs.The intricacies of Paul’s incomparable bass lines often got lost in the crash crash crash of Ringo’s cymbals. Doctor Robert, meanwhile, has cool guitar work, an appealingly languid John vocal, great Paul harmonies, and an infectious groove. Pepper, as though the album were a mere stepping stone and not a masterpiece in its own right (I feel the same way whenever Bowie’s Station to Station is described as a transitional album). The iconic, sunny rite of singalong passage for children everywhere and a favorite for the young-at-heart began quite differently than it finished. Curiously, the two Sessions discs had none of that dust, which leads me to think they may have been made by different team in the production chain.

A fun novelty song, maybe, and meets the contractual obligation of giving Ringo a song (which is why, in part, Hard Day’s Night is the Fabs’ true masterpiece — no Ringo vocal! The younger Martin wisely doesn’t calibrate the records for 21st-century ears by adding modern polish and trickery.

Some 57 years later it is still a remarkable album in terms of songcraft, but those of us who weren’t around at the time probably can’t fully appreciate how paradigm-bending and genre-warping it was when first released. Being an Elvis fan as well, I have been listening to the special series on Sirius XM where they take you through each of Presley’s recording sessions. 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. On Metacritic, Revolver: Special Edition holds an aggregate score of 100 out of 100, based on nine reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".
