Now that I've gotten my grousing out of the way, I'm playing said vinyl platter as I type. This is also on my streaming app on the phone and I cheated by listening to it in advance, but it hardly spoiled my appetite for it, but enhanced it. Case in point, I Want You She's So Heavy boasts a wilder, more furious sounding organ performance by Billy Preston, which had previously been a little further back. We always heard an organ in the track, but it's much more prominent in the first half of this mix, then it's toned down a bit in what could be John's answer to the crescendo in Paul's "Hey Jude".
The blast of white noise and the backing vocals are also toned down in favor of the Bass, drums and guitars, making it sound grittier and dirtier than it had been. Overall, nothing jumps out at you or takes you by surprise as it had with Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - now there was a shocker almost every other minute. Abbey Road was recorded on much more sophisticated equipment and has always sounded slicker, cleaner and brighter than the rest of the catalogue.
This mix is not so slick, but it's definitely clearer, brighter and fuller. I chose to buy the LP because I wanted to replace my old beaten up and scratchy copy, I tried this with the LP reissue, the pressing of which took not much effort or thought as it was just a bigger, plastic version of the CD from , and we'd already had that. This at last is the definitive LP reissue, complete with perfect replicas of the original Apple labels and the cover, down to the fonts for the song titles and not one mention of a certain surprise track at the very end.
Peppers and the White Album. That is to say, they are major upgrades in clarity, instrumental and voice separation that brings the album alive. However, two negative things I have noticed off the bat. The actual album cover is way more flimsy than I would have expected.
More importantly, there is quite a bit of surface noise on the album, something completely absent on the other Beatles remasters. I may sent it back to see if I can get a better copy? There are also a few pops but mostly just surface noise. This is clearly an issue with the pressing if this album. Maybe they will repress again later?
Definitely worth having. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. Giles Martin has done a tremendous job of giving this classic album an overhaul. The clarity and detail is top drawer and the pressing is very high quality with minimal background noise. Other reissues would do well to take as much care. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. As with Pepper and the White album Giles has done justice to the finest musical combo that ever existed.
Stand out track is Here Comes the Sun for the clarity of acoustic guitar. Subtle panning on Sun King. Ringo's The End solo has finally got the depth of sound it deserves. If like me you're in your 60s listen to this masterpiece through headphones on your own.
It's a personal private experience between you and a dear old friend. Possibly the best friends you ever had. However eager I was to get my hands on this 50th anniversary edition of ABBEY ROAD, I was nevertheless a little sceptical about quite how Giles Martin and his team could improve upon what in my humble opinion was a stunning mix in the first place.
True, the stereo version of SGT. Could any improvement be made to that luxuriant, floaty stereo polish? Well, the answer is - yes! Once again, Giles Martin and co. It's especially pleasing that George Martin's orchestrations have been brought more to the fore. This is particularly true of 'Something', where it could be argued that Martin's arrangement had been somewhat buried on the original mix. Meanwhile, the famous medley sounds even more impressive, from the gently shifting stereo of 'Sun King' through to the heart-string-tugging 'Golden Slumbers' and the full-on guitar duel of 'The End'.
Importantly, however, ABBEY ROAD retains its trademark warmth and gloss, which the booklet points out influenced the way in which many albums would be recorded over the next two decades. The bonus disc is also a pleasure.
We get alternate takes of every track on the album running in sequence, with 'I Want You She's So Heavy ' being particularly interesting here, displaying some fiery keyboard playing from Billy Preston which was obscured beneath white noise on the original mix. To add some levity and a human touch to the proceedings, there is also some enlightening studio banter thrown in for good measure.
We all know how acrimonious The Beatles' break-up was, but throughout this they do actually sound like they were enjoying themselves when making this album. I suppose it was the effect of leaving their personal squabbles at the studio door, focusing on the job in hand and being collectively determined to make a great album - which is exactly what they achieved. In common with the SGT. Here, the iconic ABBEY ROAD front cover once again has a deeper-blue sky and there is once more that slight yellowish hue to The Beatles' faces, much like on the original LP cover and the vinyl reissue from a few years ago it's a photograph which captures a beautiful English summer's day frozen in what was perhaps a more innocent time.
The booklet contains annotation from both Paul McCartney and Giles Martin, together with a guide to the alternate takes and an impressive selection of in-the-studio studies of the band at work snapped by the late Linda McCartney.
