The Beatles: The New Band From England!!

Recently I discovered the digitally remastered versions of the original Beatles albums and have spent hours enjoying these wonderful recordings. First of all, the digital quality and overall remastering transpires the 2-track stereo used for the originals. Second, to listen to (and in many cases hear for the first time) the individual musical performances by George, Paul, Ringo, and John are spellbinding. Thirdly, the vocals are incredible, the harmonies are beautiful, and to hear first a vocal by John, then one by George, another by Paul, one by Ringo, followed by another one by John or Paul is riveting, to say the least. Lastly, the creativity in songwriting, instrumentation, arranging, and recording is pure genius.

The 2-track stereo recordings on the early albums such as Revolver reveal the technical challenges of the era. Straight pans to the left and right were the norm at that time and are preserved in full digital in this project. However, the sonic fullness and separation of the tracks provides an enhanced listening experience for the listener, particularly for those of us who heard the albums on cheap stereos in less than stellar conditions at the time of their original release.

Suggestion: Check out the guitar work of George Harrison, the bass lines of Paul McCartney, and the drums & percussion of Ringo Starr, much of which was totally lost to the average listener in the original mix on albums such as Revolver. I've always loved John Lennon and always will, but with these recordings, I can now listen to an entire Beatles album and enjoy hearing Paul's bass lines or Ringo's percussion. George's guitar tracks are exceptional and are truly played the way a great guitarist who understands his instrument would lay down a track (i.e., listen to Doctor Robert...George's track is simple, rocking, and perfect for John's brilliant song).

Suggestion: Listen very carefully to the vocals on these new releases. The harmonies are crystal clear, creative, perfectly in tune, and enhance the lead vocal on every track. At times a sense of humor or playfulness is depicted in the harmonies and at times a sadness pervades the tune. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

Back in the day, many discussions took place debating the merits of the individuals in the band. "Who was the cutest?" of course lead the topic of conversation amongst the girls. The guys that I knew at the time argued over who was the best songwriter, who was the best singer, etc. At the time Revolver was released a close friend of mine took the stance that George was the better of the singer/songwriter/musicians in the band. Listening to Taxman, Something, and Here Comes The Sun reminds me of just how strong his argument was--even back then!

The sequence of the songs is always interesting and helps draw the listener into the band and their music. It's great to hear an album open with a tune by Lennon, which is followed by a Harrison song, one by McCartney, etc., etc. The variety, the stark difference in both vocal and writing styles, and the overall quality of musicianship make for a delightful journey back to the '60s. But you could just as easily be listening to a new group from England and that makes it all the more special.

Go ahead. Take the plunge. The new band from England has arrived. Again!

Check out these recordings...you will be glad you did!
