THE BEATLES GET BACK TO MONO - THE ORIGINAL MONO STUDIO ALBUMS REMASTERED AT ABBEY ROAD DIRECTLY FROM THE ANALOGUE MASTERS FOR VINYL RELEASE

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.  

On September 8 (September 9 in North America), The Beatles’ nine U.K. albums, the American-compiled Magical Mystery Tour, and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks will be released in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork.  Newly mastered from the analogue master tapes, each album will be available both individually and within a lavish, limited 14-LP boxed edition, The Beatles In Mono, which also includes a 108-page hardbound book. 

ORDER THE BEATLES ON MONO AT THE OFFICIAL STORES OR AT YOUR LOCAL RETAILER:

"Paul said, 'Look I've got this idea,' and we said, 'Great!' - and all he had was this circle and a little dot on the top. That's where we started!" [Ringo]

In September 1967, The Beatles were making their third film, this time conceived and directed by The Beatles themselves. They loaded friends, family, a film crew and cast onto a bus, and headed west on the A30 out of London. They didn't know what was going to happen, but they didn't need to - this was The Magical Mystery Tour!

The in-the-round theater is equipped with 6,000 speakers that blast the tunes at sometimes concert-worthy volume as acrobats and dancers move through the early lives of the Beatles, blasting apart a WWII-era Liverpool set during a bombastic "Get Back," racing across the stage in a vintage Beetle for "Drive My Car" and filling the air with giant soap bubbles pulled from the top of a grand piano for "Strawberry Fields Forever."

20 March 2012

By hand, frame by frame and without the use of automated software, The Beatles' 1968 Pop Art masterpiece Yellow Submarine has been digitally restored and re-released to huge acclaim.
 
The delicate, hand-drawn artwork that revolutionised animation in its day has been brought back to its original condition, revealing it to be as thrilling a psychedelic odyssey as it was at the time of its original release.
 
Yellow Submarine was the first great, non-Disney animated feature and it's as if the music, themes, surreal humour, artwork and writing have all just been born again in 4k digital resolution.
