The classic original Beatles studio albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilising state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the Beatles catalogue has seen since its original release.
Within each CD's new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. The newly produced mini-documentaries on the making of each album, directed by Bob Smeaton, are included as QuickTime files on each album. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
What a shame they now couldn't stand to be in each others presence for more than a few minutes.
And somehow, despite the acrimony and anger and frustration, their best work emerged. Go figure.
The remastering is beautiful, crystal clear and well balanced. The packaging is the very best that the digipack format can offer. Masterful. I could grow to like it if it was all so well done. Much kudos and many thanks for the hard work needed to bring both to my hands and ears.
And it is Abbey Road. There is nothing that can be said that will qualify that or make the contents come alive any more than just sitting and listening will. I was a stranger to this album until quite recently, and on one hearing, even this late in the day, I understood what all the fuss was about.
I put on this new album and noticed the snap, crackle, pop right away. I inspected it for scratches, lint, dust, etc. I didn't see any, but I used Pfan-stat Record Cleaning Fluid and a Record-Happy Cleaning Cloth just in case my failing eyesight may have missed something. No dice. !@#$%&*
I'm no audiophile, but I do enjoy good music. There are many positive reviews of this album. Perhaps the vinyl I received was just a bad pressing. I will ask to have it replaced. If I receive a suitable replacement, I will update this review. However, in the interim, I will enjoy my vinyl from 1969 . . .
P.S. My wife says that it sounds like a bonfire.
I originally gave this remaster 2 stars. The more I think of it, I decided that those 2 stars was too generous. If I could I would revise my rating to be a negative number. The idiots who did this remaster should be in prison.
