Digitally Re-Mastered for the First Time on CD! Includes a Newly Produced Mini-Documentary QuickTime File on the Making of the Album!
Apple Corps Ltd. and EMI Music announce the digitally re-mastered individual CD releases of the original Beatles catalog which encompasses all 12 Beatles albums plus Magical Mystery Tour and Past Masters Vol. I & II.
The albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers that includes Guy Massey, Steve Rooke, Sam Okell with Paul Hicks and Sean Magee at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilizing 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 catalog has seen since its original release.
Within each CD’s new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. With the exception of the Past Masters' set, 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.
While the Beatles still largely stuck to love songs on Rubber Soul, the songwriting was growing increasingly more complex with its ambiguous lyrics and intricate folk-rock arrangements. Rubber Soul retains the youthful fun and vitality of the Beatles as pop stars, while also having the substance and immensity of the band in their more artistic, explorative studio years.
