Small samples of course, must say to me the sound is clearer, cleaner, punchier ... and without edge - of all things a bit bland. Could be just me.

Real Quaid said...

Can't access the video on youtube for some reason

Westfield said...

WOW. Really looking forward to the sessions disc.

Debjorgo said...

It sounds great. Love it. The level on the Lovely Rita backing vocals is jarring. I hopes it's not there through the whole song. As the last verse rev up, it' be cool.

I'm down for the six disc deluxe version.

Christopher Newman said...

Good Lord! I need this ASAP! Super Deluxe Edition please.

Mike N said...

2CD version for me thanks! Waiting for the White album deluxe edition I'll do the super deluxe on that one.

Westfield said...

In my opinion The 2009 remasters were disappointing to say the least. The yellow submarine songtrack has been the most superior release to date and so since then we have been waiting for a remix of the Beatles albums. Finally it seems that this may be coming to fruition and hope this is just the first. To get a 5.1 mix to get two discs of session tapes, I just cannot wait. Will preorder the super deluxe the moment it is available. Cannot wait.

far out!

David Tongue said...

Can't wait for Abbey Road in 5.1

Ramon Robin Cruz said...

this release is beginning of all the beginning,, all beatles album will gonna be massive in next releases

Judemac said...

I pre-ordered the Super Deluxe 6 disc & 2 disc version for my collection.

Inti Santamaría said...

Shut up and take my money!!

Studio2AbbeyRd said...

Amazing looking set and I'll probably finish going for the Deluxe 6 pack at £140 smackers.
Tad disappointed they didn't include SFF and PL onto the Remix LP as they sort of alluded to via the press. (Mr McCartney?) I was looking forward to how the track listing would have worked out. Just have to mock up my own version and throw OANS in the mix from Yellow Sub Songtrack.

Amazon Italy have this cheaper than Amazon UK: 98 Euros. Of-course the UK price may fall before release.

Terence Daniel Collier said...

what a total rip off. £100??? seriously?

Jimmy King said...

I hope this is a huge seller so Apple will give other albums the deluxe treatment.
