About this deal

We get to hear an early version of the song played straight without that lift, and the tune nearly lies flat without it. The Beatles' final Revolver recording session took place in Studio Two on the evening of June 21, 1966 into the wee hours of June 22, just one day before the band traveled to Munich to start their international summer tour. I haven’t listened closely in the context of these new mixes but I’m sure it’s at least somewhat audible. Spinning popular music off its axis and ushering in a vibrant new era of experimental, avant-garde sonic psychedelia, Revolver brought about a cultural sea change and marked an important turn in The Beatles' own creative evolution. Other than that, the sound quality is great on the remixes, great on the sessions, and INCREDIBLE on the mono mixes, both on the LP and the 7".

New Stereo Mix of The Beatles’ Revolver in 180g 4LP/1EP Vinyl Box Set Reveals Many New Sonic Details, Plus 2LPs of Unreleased Outtakes to Sweeten the Pot. And Your Bird Can Sing” is not great as a song – take away those barnstorming guitars, and it loses much of its appeal, the song can’t stand alone on its message or melody. After listening to the two “Sessions” CDs that offer alternate takes, rehearsals and demos, I was somewhat disappointed.

Well, the Ramones were named after a Beatles-related Macca alias, after all—MM] And then, the tapes were slowed down for overdubs of vocals and such. The orchestral buildup on A Day in the Life I suppose, and the crazy circus atmospheric “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Got To Get You Into My Life does have incredible horn clarity, but at the expense of what may be my favorite moment in the whole album: the guitar burst at the end.

The book is illustrated with images of handwritten lyrics, tape boxes, and recording sheets, as well as 1966 print ads and extracts from the graphic novel, Revolver 50. Lennon’s songs provided the swagger that made the Beatles head and shoulders above their contemporaries. The new mix retains that druggy feel but you can make out each instrument and each voice now through the haze. This set features a striking new stereo remix helmed by producer Giles Martin and is a fantastic addition to The Beatles catalog, providing a tremendous insight into the music as well as into its making. Revolver: Special Edition is an expanded reissue of the 1966 album Revolver by the English rock band the Beatles.I hear you about Lennon’s three songs not being “necessary” as I’m not as inventive or creative as so many other songs. Songs like “Eleanor Rigby” and “Yellow Submarine” are arguably the finest productions on the album in many ways, so it’s no surprise those were chosen to be paired up for the very first single issued from the album back in August 1966. Pepper, The White Album, and Abbey Road because at this point in their evolution there were fewer instruments to mix.

On Metacritic, Revolver: Special Edition holds an aggregate score of 100 out of 100, based on nine reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".Revolver is my second favorite album, (after Pet Sounds, 1966 really was a great year for music wasn’t it? Part of that was life experiences seeping into their art after a whirlwind few years: 1965’s Rubber Soul – the studio album directly before Revolver – contained forays into psychedelic pop as well as sharply observed (if straightforward) original songwriting.
