Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 11/500!
"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 reissues transparency and depth surpass that of the original and theres more detail to be heard... The more you listen to and appreciate the mono mixes the less youll 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.
