Great 7″ singles from the past

The Fab Four scored their 18th number-one hit in the US with double
A-side single COME TOGETHER / SOMETHING this day in 1969.

Lennon was, lyrically, inspired by Timothy Leary‘s campaign for governor
of California titled “Come together, join the party” against Ronald Reagan
and sonically by Chuck Berry‘s 1956 rocker You Can’t Catch Me

Something’ was the first George Harrison written
track which appeared as a Beatles A-side.

THE BEATLES – Deluxe Edition Of Their Masterpiece Album REVOLVER Lands Next Month

9 September 2022

The Fab Four‘s seventh LP, REVOLVER was released on 5 August 1966. Following the release of Rubber Soul the group had embarked on what was to be their final UK concert tour and following a lengthy break, they returned to Abbey Road to record continually for three months. Having been longer in the studio had paid off with greater creativity and experimentation and with John and Paul in fine form as writers. George also made his mark with three of his compositions appearing on a Beatles album for the first time.

The 100% pure masterpiece album is the latest Beatles album to be re-released as
a remixed and expanded deluxe box set following ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’
in 2017, ‘White Album’ (2018), ‘Abbey Road’ (2019) and ‘Let It Be’ (2021).

Content: All 14 tracks on the original album have been newly mixed by Giles Martin (the son of the genial Beatles producer George Martin) and engineer Sam Okell in stereo and Dolby Atmos, while the album’s original mono mix has been sourced from its 1966 mono master tape. The physical and digital super deluxe ‘Revolver’ collections also feature the album’s original mono mix, 28 early takes from the sessions and three home demos. There is also a four-track EP with new stereo mixes and remastered original mono mixes for ‘Paperback Writer’ and ‘Rain’.

The ‘Revolver’ special edition will be available in three formats – ‘Super Deluxe’, ‘Deluxe’ and ‘Standard’. Release on vinyl, CD and digitally on 26 October. Pre-order info here
