New Digital Beatles EP’s Compiled


Just released is a trio of vaguely themed new digital Beatles EP's. The new six-track online compilations tackle meditation, relationships, and childhood. The comps span the band's entire career and serve as a decent sampler for younger and newer fans.

The tracks features the most-recent mixes of the songs — including he remixed takes on tunes from 1967's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, 1968's "White Album," and 1969's Abbey Road.

Paul McCartney — along with Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Olivia Harrison — have all been thrilled with the recent catalogue remixes by Giles Martin and Sam Okell. He said that he's aware a percentage of fans that consider it almost sacrilegious to remix the Beatles' catalogue: ["I think there will be people who are purists and want to hear it as it was. And y'know what? It exists as it was. So y'know, play your vinyl. Y'know, that is how it was, but obviously by allowing it to happen, we don't have a problem in cleaning (the masters) up. So for the purists, you stick to the pure sound and let other people hear it clean."] SOUNDCUE (:22 OC: . . . hear it clean)
