DESCRIPTION:
For years the most anticipated vinyl reissues have been from the one, the only Beatles catalog. Finally, after a delay due to the meticulousness of the remastering process and assorted other hurdles, that day has come. The Beatles catalog is getting the audiophile treatment! 180-gram vinyl pressings cut at Abbey Road Studios using the non-limited 24-bit digital masters sourced from the original analog master tapes!

When the dust settles amid critical debates, fewer than 10 albums compete for the title of the Best Album Ever Recorded. Revolver is one of the chosen few — and for good reason. Many tracks on Revolver are marked by an electric guitar rock sound in contrast with the previous folk rock inspired Rubber Soul. Revolver reached No. 1 on the U.K. and the U.S. charts. Features "Good Day Sunshine, " "Got To Get You Into My Life," "Yellow Submarine," and "Eleanor Rigby."

On Revolver, the Beatles sound cohesive, enthusiastic, and confident. There are no fractures in the chemistry, and the band amicably competes with itself in aiming for and achieving rock immortality. With George Emerick in the fold as the new engineer, the Beatles approached the studio as a chemistry lab. The biggest revelation? The potential of tape loops, as evidenced by "Tomorrow Never Knows," where phasing, reversing, slowing, and sampling turned the composition into a piece of masterpiece theater. Ringo's bass drum is also noticeably tighter, thanks to the addition of a sweater placed inside. All of the aspects are fully audible and amazingly preserved on this mind-blowing LP pressing.

Extensive testing was done before engineers copied the analog master tapes into digital files using 24-bit/192 kHz resolution and a Prism A-D converter. Dust build-ups were removed from tape machine heads after the completion of each title. Artifacts such as electrical clicks, microphone vocal pops, excessive sibilance and poor edits were improved upon as long as they were judged not to damage the integrity of the songs. The 24/192 transfers were done to produce an archival copy of the tapes and then those files were reduced to 24/44.1 kHz files for final mastering. De-noising technology was applied in only a few necessary spots and on a sum total of less than five of the entire 525 minutes of Beatles music.
