About this deal

After listening to the two “Sessions” CDs that offer alternate takes, rehearsals and demos, I was somewhat disappointed. I’m happy about this new Super Deluxe Revolver 4LP/1EP box set, hands down — and I think you will be too! It’s easy to forget, but you can listen to their entire official recorded output (albums, stand-alone singles, eps etc) in about 10 hours. Pepper’ is a great idea and there are fantastic songs on it, but I find that ‘Revolver’ is the peak of the band being a band.

Parts 1 and 2 of the Special Edition's songwriting work tape for "Yellow Submarine" reveal the song's evolution from a rather sad verse sung by John over acoustic guitar — "In the town where I was born / No one cared, no one cared. 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. Someone once said there was never a greater contrast on a Beatles album than that of the bummed out bad acid trip of “She Said She Said” followed by the bright sing-song shiny enthusiasm of “Good Day Sunshine”, and I think they are right. Pepper albums via special "demixing" technology developed at Abbey Road Studios, but wanted to wait until the software improved enough to be used in such a project. I understand that there is limited space on CD or vinyl to present multiple incarnations of a song, but then why squander some of the real estate with instrumentals?Revolver's Special Edition also features Take 11, with falsetto backing vocals by John and Paul with different words from the released version. and is in my opinion the Beatles greatest album (Doctor Robert notwithstanding, I’m not a big fan of that one either. 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).

Beatles fans will never agree on what is the band’s finest album, but “Revolver” began to replace “Sgt.

The Revolver album's 14 tracks have been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell in stereo and Dolby Atmos, and the album's original mono mix is sourced from its 1966 mono master tape.

On Metacritic, Revolver: Special Edition holds an aggregate score of 100 out of 100, based on nine reviews, indicating "universal acclaim". If you’re on a limited budget, you can’t go wrong with the two-disc set which comes with a 40-page booklet abridged from the Super Deluxe book. For the LP format a pause between songs was deemed necessary; it wasn’t, and the Beatles eliminated it on Pepper — groundbreaking in 1967! For me, ‘Revolver’ is the Beatles’ best album,” says John Sebastian of the Lovin’ Spoonful, who later learned that his song “ Daydream” had inspired the album’s feel-good side-two opener, “Good Day Sunshine. With their producer George Martin flanked by recording engineer Geoff Emerick and technical engineer Ken Townsend, they went in blazing, starting with "Tomorrow Never Knows.
