Beatles - Revolver LP RE (180-Gram, Audiophile)
Their first psychedelic masterpiece, Revolver represents The Beatles at their most creative and cohesive, still a tight rocking unit firing on all cylinders but with a surging freedom of self-expression. It is arguably their greatest album, in which they introduce whole new vistas of sound yet still contain them within tightly structured and performed songs.
Recorded before The Beatles’ personalities began to clash and in advance of the fog brought on by drug use, Revolver encompasses practically every imaginable style and then some. Gentle harmonic pop (“I Want to Tell You”), stained-glass acid rock (“She Said She Said”), upbeat soul (“Got to Get You Into My Life”), Indian (“Love You To”), and what, at the time, and in some ways still is, the most cutting-edge pop composition ever devised (“Tomorrow Never Knows”), a song that single-handedly re-imagined and rewrote the rules of production.
Before the woolly politics of flower power had really taken over psychedelia, Revolver remains sharp and acerbic, its cutting quality emphasised by great electric guitar-playing from both George and John. The band looked fantastic, too, in hipster suits and dark glasses. Pound for pound and song for song, Revolver is as good as it gets, a real monster.
A team consisting of some of the best producers and engineers in the recording industry were brought together and would spend 4 long years mixing and mastering with some of the most state of the art recording equipment. treating these records much like a science experiment, engineers ran extensive tests before copying the analog master tapes over into a digital format using 24-bit/192 kHz resolution, and carefully removing clicks, vocal pops and poor edits. Never altering the original songs them selves, just polishing them up a bit.
