The Beatles


This is the first time The BEATLES (‘White Album’) has been remixed and presented with additional demos and session recordings. To create the new stereo and 5.1 surround audio mixes for ‘The White Album,’ Martin and Okell worked with an expert team of engineers and audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios in London.

All the new ‘White Album’ releases include Martin’s new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original four-track and eight-track session tapes. Martin’s new mix is guided by the album’s original stereo mix produced by his father, George Martin.

During the last week of May 1968, The Beatles gathered at George’s house in Esher, Surrey, where they recorded acoustic demos for 27 songs. Known as the Esher Demos, all 27 recordings are also included in the 7 Disc Super Deluxe package, sourced from the original four-track tapes.

The comprehensive, individually numbered 7-disc collection features: CDs 1 & 2: 2018 stereo album mix+H5 CD3: Esher Demos CDs 4, 5 & 6: Sessions - 50 additional recordings, most previously unreleased, from ‘White Album’ studio sessions; all newly mixed from the four-track and eight-track session tapes, sequenced in order of their recording start dates. Blu-ray: - 2018 album mix in high resolution PCM stereo - 2018 DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 album mix - 2018 Dolby True HD 5.1 album mix - 2018 direct transfer of the album’s original mono mix

This is the first review of the new 5.1 mix I have seen.

First impression, having heard the bluray surround disc once: A lot more is happening in the rear speakers than on last year's Sgt Pepper bluray (try the infamous Revolution #9!). Nothing obtrusive, in my opinion. I heard hundreds of details I've never heard before, and this is the 5th incarnation of this record I've bought, including the 1968 numbered LP.

I couldn't have found a better present to myself on my 65th birthday (which not so many years ago was the official retirement day here in Sweden).
