THE BEATLES – Deluxe Edition For Their Final And Underrated LP ‘LET IT BE’

29 August 2021

Deluxe edition: LET IT BE
Original LP: Released 8 May 1970 – 51 years ago

Content: The expanded version will be available in several different formats
and packages. Producer Giles Martin (yes, the son of fifth 5th Beatle Martin) and
engineer Sam Okell have put together a new mixi in stereo, 5.1 surround DTS, and
Dolby Atmos, sourced from the original tapes. There’s also the Super Deluxe edition
of all reissue options, including four LPs, an EP, and a book. It’ll feature 27 previously unreleased session recordings, including the 14-song Get Back stereo record mix that engineer Glyn Johns put together in May of 1969 before the Fab Four decided to throw
the raw album mix in the dustbin.

Turn Up the Volume: Like for billions of people on this planet, The Beatles are
also for me, the best band ever. Their virtuoso talent and innovatory skills made
them turn pop music into something that elevated pop-ular music to an ingenious
and very, worldwide, accessible form of entertaining art. Let It be wasn’t a
masterpiece but it made zillions of bands jealous. Say no more.

THE BEATLES Released Timeless Classic Album ‘REVOLVER’ 55 Years Ago Today


(Brilliant artwork)

5 August 2021

Band: THE BEATLES
Album: REVOLVER – sixth LP

Released: 5 August 1966 – 55 years ago today
Charts: #1 in the UK, USA, Australia, and several
European countries

Pitchfork said: “As they devoted more time to the studio, the Beatles’ individual
voices and confidence continued to grow, resulting in the sonic landmark Revolver.
In the end it’s the sound of a band growing into supreme confidence. The Beatles
had been transformed into a group not beholden to the expectations of their label
or bosses, but fully calling the shots, recording at their own pace, releasing records
at a less-demanding clip, abandoning the showmanship of live performance.”

Score: 10/10.

Turn Up The Volume: Every chord, every melody, every vocal/harmony,
every beat, every riff, every lick, every hook… PERFECT!

Singles: Eleanor Rigby / Yellow Submarine

– ELEANOR RIGBY –

– YELLOW SUBMARINE –

Classic Crackers – THE BEATLES & THE STONES

11 June 2021

THE ROLLING STONES topped the US Singles Chart with
PAINT IT, BLACK 55 years today on 11 June 1966.

A haunting, dark, and ominous masterstroke. The Stones
at their very mystical best. It also hit the top spot in the UK
and several countries in Europe.

No colors anymore I want them to turn black

Today 52 years ago, on 11 June 1969, The Fab Four (in this case only Paul and John were involved) topped the UK Singles Chart with BALLAD OF JOHN AND YOKO. Actually one of my all-time favorite Lennon classics. It was the band’s 17th and final Numero Uno in their native country. The song tells the story of the eventful days of the marriage of the late genius and his muse Yoko Ono. It stills sounds brilliant.

Christ, you know it ain’t easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They’re gonna crucify me
