Title: Revolver
Label: Parlophone
Genre: Rock
Str Date: 2009-09-09

On September 9, 2009, after a nearly 22-year wait, digitally remastered
versions of all of the Beatles studio albums will be released, a press
release has confirmed. Each album will feature the track listings and
artwork as it was originally released in the U.K. and come with
expanded booklets including original and newly written liner notes and
rare photos. For a limited time, each of the Fab Fourís 12 proper
albums will be ìembeddedî with a brief documentary about its making.
The rereleases will include the Beatlesí 12 studio albums and Magical
Mystery Tour as well as Past Masters Vol. I and II, which will be
packaged as one collection. All 14 discs will be available with DVDs of
the documentaries in a stereo box set, and a set titled The Beatles in
Mono featuring 10 discs will also be released.

(Look back at the Beatlesí studio albums and Rolling Stoneís stories on
the LPs.)

A crew of engineers at Londonís Abbey Road Studios have spent four
years working on the remasters using new technology and vintage
equipment, the press release says, in an effort to preserve ìthe
authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordingsî and
ensure ìthe highest fidelity the catalog has seen since its original
9/9/09 promises to be a huge day in Beatles lore, as itís the same day
The Beatles: Rock Band will hit stores. This weekend brought a bit of
Beatles news, too, as Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited onstage
at a New York benefit for David Lynchís Transcendental Meditation
foundation (see photos here). Preorders for the remasters are already
popping up on Amazon.co.uk. Demand for Beatles remasters has steadily
increased since 1987, when Capitol/EMI first released the Beatlesí
discography on CD with what many audiophile fans deemed substandard
sound quality compared to the original vinyl.

While it seems like other artists remaster their entire catalog every
several years, Capitol/EMI have barely touched the Beatlesí discography
since 1987, with the exception of 2004ís The Capitol Albums, Vol. 1 box
set, which compiled and remastered the bandís first four American
releases in stereo and mono formats. The soundtrack for the Beatlesí
Love show also gave listeners a brief tease of how fantastic the bandís
songs would sound if properly remastered.

The Beatles in Mono will include the 10 albums originally mixed for
mono release, as well as two additional discs the press release says
features similar songs to those on the Past Masters compilations. The
mono versions of Help! and Rubber Soul will boast bonuses: the albumsí
original 1965 stereo mixes, which have not been previously released on
CD, per the press release. The mono collection, like the stereo one,
will include all original inserts and label designs, and the CDs are
designed as tiny vinyl replicas.

The press release didnít include news regarding a possible deal with
iTunes or another digital-music vendor to distribute the catalog
digitally: ìDiscussions regarding the digital distribution of the
catalog will continue. There is no further information available at
this time,î the press release reads. Both Apple Corps. and Paul
McCartney have expressed reluctance to release the Beatlesí music
digitally until all the albums had been remastered. The solo work of
each of the four Beatles is available on iTunes.
