Abbey Road Deluxe: September 29

Postby Still Baron » 08 Aug 2019, 18:01

What a surprise! Another big anniversary, another box. At least we don’t have to buy vinyl to get the good stuff.

I don’t know about this one. I loved the Sgt. Pepper & White Album big boxes and Giles Martin remixes, but the last Abbey Road remaster was astounding: proving I The Beatles had at last got to grips with stereo. Mind you, I loved the Abbey Road early version songs on Anthology 3, so I’m going to wait and see what the extras are. I may not need too much convincing...and I do have a birthday just before then.

Basically, if the Beatles are gonna give me a book and a bunch of studio quality outtakes, I’m in.

Yep.

And I'll be interested to hear the remix... once, probably.

In a nutshell... :lol:

And the fact that Abbey Road was my entrance point to rock music (my first LP, as a 10-year-old) makes this the mother lode!!
