You can tell that one of the reasons for track selection on ‘WA’ 50th was to highlight the studio camaraderie between the four and to show there was fun in the sessions in contrast to the stories of tension and disharmony.

I like to think those in charge of choosing the tracklisting for the bonus material base it on whether or not the material is interesting and worth hearing. I don’t need to hear multiple takes of a song if it doesn’t deviate too much from the finished product.

I’m sure I read an article from Giles Martin discussing why they didn’t include X on the 50th Anniversary Editions and it was pretty much because of the reasons mentioned above.

  

I suppose they didn’t think 27 minute Helter Skelter was interesting enough ahdn_paul_01(a-hard-days-night-george-10)

We’re going off on a tangent here, but Giles Martin said the 27 minute version of Helter Skelter isn’t much different to the take that’s on the 50th Anniversary release and including it would mean we (the listener) would lose out on more interesting material.

Re Abbey Road I’m nowhere near as jazzed to own it as I was for the White Album ……..I’m sure I’ll hear via YouTube sooner or later anything of interest.

I’ll look for reviews on here as it’s not that easy to get hold of this stuff where i live. They’ve hardly heard of the Beatles here.

I once showed a friend of mine a handsome Paul in his pomp glistening with sweat and bathed in the spotlight singing Yesterday ……This must impress her I thought….She must have heard this song……

She looks at the screen and looks at me and exclaims……..’Oooh…..Mr Bean’

I don’t think I’ve been much excited about any Beatles album since the Anthology discs as that could be down to years of Apple being utterly inept. Am looking forward to it tho as I love hearing outtakes and anything new from them. Apple knows they have me with any new music, especially music.

Will admit the reported tracklisting is the most disappointing so far but that might be due to the amount included on the ‘WA’ and ‘Pepper’ being the first. I look forward to seeing what they announce, hopefully, tomorrow.

Agreed. The last two had several high profile gems that were finally seeing light. The tracklist i’ve seen so far has been fairly underwhelming.

Abbey-Road-50th.jpgImage Enlarger

My interweb is playing up but press release has been issued.

Abbey Road Anniversary Editions To Be Released

OH YEAH, ALRIGHT!

 THE BEATLES REVISIT Abbey Road

WITH SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY RELEASES

Abbey Road Presented with New Mixes in Stereo, 5.1 Surround, and Dolby Atmos; Expanded with Previously Unreleased Session Recordings and Demos 

– AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE SEPTEMBER 27, 2019 –

London – August 8, 2019 – It was 50 years ago today, on August 8, 1969, that the world’s most famous band stepped out from London’s EMI Recording Studios to stride, single-file, across the black and white stripes of Abbey Road ’s nearby zebra crossing. With photographer Iain Macmillan balanced on a stepladder and one policeman stopping the street’s light traffic, The Beatles crossed back and forth three times, led by John Lennon , followed by Ringo Starr , Paul McCartney , and George Harrison . Just six photos were taken, with the fifth selected as the cover shot for The Beatles’ penultimate studio album, Abbey Road , named after the tree-lined street in which the studios are located. Released September 26, 1969, Abbey Road  was not The Beatles’ final album, as Let It Be  followed in 1970, but it was the last one John, Paul, George, and Ringo recorded together as a band. The Beatles will celebrate Abbey Road ’s anniversary with a suite of beautifully presented packages to be released worldwide on September 27 by Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe. Now available for preorder, the album’s 17 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo, high res stereo, 5.1 surround, and Dolby Atmos, accompanied by 23 session recordings and demos, most of which are previously unreleased.

“The Beatles recording journey had gone through many twists and turns, learning curves and thrilling rides. Here we were – still wondering at the magic of it all,” McCartney recalls in his written foreword for Abbey Road ’s anniversary edition packages.

This is the first time Abbey Road  has been remixed and presented with additional session recordings and demos. The album’s sweeping new edition follows the universally acclaimed remixed and expanded anniversary editions of Sgt. Pepper ’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The BEATLES (‘White Album ’) released in 2017 and 2018, respectively. To create Abbey Road ’s new stereo, 5.1 surround, and Dolby Atmos mixes, Martin and Okell worked with an expert team of engineers and audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios. All the new Abbey Road  releases feature the new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original eight-track session tapes. To produce the mix, Giles was guided by the album’s original stereo mix supervised by his father, George Martin.

“The magic comes from the hands playing the instruments, the blend of The Beatles’ voices, the beauty of the arrangements,” Giles Martin explains in his written introduction for the new edition. “Our quest is simply to ensure everything sounds as fresh and hits you as hard as it would have on the day it was recorded.”

Abbey Road ’s Super Deluxe box set presents 40 tracks – including “The Long One” Trial Edit & Mix for the album’s epic Side 2 medley – on three CDs (stereo) and one Blu-ray disc (Dolby Atmos, 96kHz/24 bit high resolution stereo, and 96 kHz/24 bit DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1). The four discs are housed in a slip-sleeved 12” by 12” 100-page hardbound book with McCartney’s foreword; Martin’s introduction; insightful, in-depth chapters written by Beatles historian, author, and radio producer Kevin Howlett covering the months preceding The Beatles’ Abbey Road  sessions, track-by-track details and session notes, the cover art and photo shoot, and the album’s reception upon its release; plus an essay by music journalist and author David Hepworth looking at the album’s influence through 50 years. The gorgeous book is illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photographs, including many taken by Linda McCartney; never before published images of handwritten lyrics, sketches, and a George Martin score; Beatles correspondence, recording sheets, and tape boxes; and reproduced original print ads. The Super Deluxe digital audio collection presents all 40 tracks for download purchase and streaming in standard and MFiT formats, as well as in high resolution audio (96kHz/24 bit) for download.

Abbey Road ’s limited edition Deluxe vinyl box set features all 40 tracks from the Super Deluxe collection on three 180-gram vinyl LPs. The album’s new stereo mix LP is packaged in a faithfully replicated sleeve, with the two Sessions LPs paired in their own jacket, presented with a four-page insert in a lift-top box. The Deluxe 2CD set pairs the new stereo mix with versions taken from the session takes and demo recordings of its 17 songs, sequenced to match the album’s running order. The two discs are presented in a digipak with a 40-page booklet abridged from the Super Deluxe book. The album’s new stereo mix is also available in 1CD and 180-gram 1LP vinyl packages, for digital download in standard and MFiT audio, and on a limited edition picture disc vinyl LP illustrated by the album’s front and back cover art images.

Abbey Road ’s Super Deluxe and Deluxe vinyl box sets’ 23 session and demo recordings are presented in chronological order of their first recording dates. “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” leads the charge:

For an overnight session on February 22, 1969, The Beatles were joined at London’s Trident Studios by producer George Martin and engineer Glyn Johns to record “I Want You (She’s So Heavy).” Abbey Road ’s new edition combines a take from that session with the concluding part of the Trident master’s eight-track reduction mix made later at the EMI studios, revealing for the first time Billy Preston’s thrilling overdubbed organ solo. With their amps turned up high, The Beatles received a noise complaint from one of the studio’s neighbors in the Soho area of the city. The take starts with Lennon exclaiming, “My boys are ready to go!,” before the band is told about the complaint. Lennon replies, “What are they doing here at this time of night?,” then lays it down: “Well, we’ll try it once more very loud. And then if we don’t get it, we’ll try it quiet, like it might do it the other way. OK. The loud one, last go. Last chance to be loud!”

In the same month that the raucous Trident session took place, McCartney recorded a home demo of “Goodbye” for the Apple-signed singer Mary Hopkin and Harrison recorded a solo demo of “Something ” at EMI Recording Studios. Both demos are featured on Abbey Road ’s new edition. “Goodbye” makes its release debut. Although previously released on Anthology 3  in a version featuring guitar and vocal, the new anniversary mix of George’s “Something ” demo features for the first time vocal, guitar and piano.  

The Beatles reconvened at EMI’s studios and Olympic Sound Studios for sessions spanning mid-April to early May. On April 14, Lennon and McCartney recorded the single “The Ballad Of John And Yoko ” in EMI’s Studio Three, with Geoff Emerick as the balance engineer. Two days later, the single’s B-side, “Old Brown Shoe ” was recorded. Session recordings for these tracks, as well as three more songs started during this period, “Oh! Darling ,” “Octopus’s Garden,” and “You Never Give Me Your Money ,” are featured in Abbey Road ’s anniversary edition.

The remainder of Abbey Road ’s sessions took place in July and in August with George Martin producing, and with principal engineers Geoff Emerick and Phil McDonald taking turns at EMI’s groundbreaking new mixing console, the TG12345. On July 2, 3, and 4, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr recorded “Golden Slumbers ”/“Carry That Weight ” as a medley (Lennon was hospitalized in Scotland, recuperating after a car accident). A sequence of Takes 1-3 from the first day’s session is featured in the anniversary edition. Take 9 from McCartney, Harrison, and Starr’s backing track session for “Here Comes The Sun ” on Starr’s July 7 birthday is also included.

On July 21, 22, and 23, The Beatles were in-studio to record “Come Together ,” followed by additional sessions on July 25, 29, and 30. The anniversary edition features Take 5. On July 23, The Beatles began recording “The End ,” which, along with McCartney’s timeless couplet – “And in the end, the love you take / Is equal to the love you make” – features Starr’s only drum solo on a Beatles recording. Take 3 is included in Abbey Road ’s new edition. The next day, just before the band’s 34-take session for “Sun King ” and “Mean Mr Mustard ,” McCartney cut a quick studio demo for “Come And Get It ” – later a hit for the Apple-signed band Badfinger. The demo’s original 1969 stereo mix, made with McCartney and Lennon present in the control room, is released for the first time in the new edition, as is Take 20 from The Beatles’ “Sun King ” and “Mean Mr Mustard ” session. On July 25, two more songs, “Polythene Pam ” and “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window ,” were recorded as one for inclusion in the album’s epic medley. Take 27 from that session is featured on the new edition.

After Harrison had transported his rare and cumbersome Moog synthesizer to the studios, four songs received Beatle-played synthesizer parts: “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” (Lennon), “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” (McCartney), and “Here Comes The Sun ” and “Because ” (Harrison). This was a very early use of the newly-invented instrument on a pop record. George Martin wrote arrangements for several tracks that were recorded in Studio One toward the end of the sessions in August 1969. The original overdubbed recordings of Martin’s scores for “Something ” and “Golden Slumbers ”/“Carry That Weight ” are included in Abbey Road ’s anniversary edition.

August 20, 1969 was the last time The Beatles were together as a band at the EMI studios, for an evening session to compile Abbey Road ’s master tapes. The album’s sides were sequenced, with “Come Together ” opening Side 1, and with the medley of “You Never Give Me Your Money ,” “Sun King ,” “Mean Mr Mustard ,” “Polythene Pam ,” “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window ,” “Golden Slumbers ,” “Carry That Weight ,” and “The End ” placed on Side 2. “The Long One,” a different trial edit and mix of the medley, including “Her Majesty ” (ultimately placed 14 seconds after “The End ” as an unlisted, hidden track) is included in Abbey Road ’s new edition.

A few weeks before Abbey Road ’s release on September 26, 1969, Apple’s press officer Derek Taylor revealed that the album was “recorded at nice, workmanlike sessions which usually began at 2pm and continued until the end of the evening.” Millions of Abbey Road  LPs were pressed at manufacturing plants around the world. The album was another blockbuster release for The Beatles, holding the No. 1 spot on the U.K. albums chart for a total of 17 weeks and topping Billboard’s U.S. albums chart for 11 weeks. For their work on Abbey Road , Geoff Emerick and Phil McDonald won the year’s GRAMMY Award® for Best Engineered Recording, Non-Classical. In 1995, Abbey Road  was inducted into the Recording Academy’s GRAMMY Hall of Fame, recognizing “recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance.” The Beatles’ best-selling studio album, Abbey Road ’s universal popularity and influence have continued to grow since its debut.

Since Abbey Road ’s release, the street’s zebra crossing has been one of the most celebrated and photographed sites in the world, protected as an historic landmark and visited by thousands of Beatles fans each year. Due to the success of The Beatles’ album, EMI Recording Studios was renamed Abbey Road Studios. Owned and operated by Universal Music Group, Abbey Road Studios is the most famous recording studio in the world and a global music icon.

Wonderful news and thank you for posting the press release!  I’ve been holding onto an Amazon gift card waiting for this announcement.  Would one of you kind souls be able to post a link (Amazon US) that would allow Beatles Bible to get the purchase referral?

So, here’s the official tracklistings for the bonus material on the Super Deluxe and the Deluxe. Super Deluxe first:

Disc 2 (CD): Sessions
1. I Want You (She’s So Heavy) (Trident Recording Session & Reduction Mix)
2. Goodbye (Home Demo)
3. Something (Studio Demo)
4. The Ballad Of John And Yoko (Take 7)
5. Old Brown Shoe (Take 2)
6. Oh! Darling (Take 4)
7. Octopus’s Garden (Take 9)
8. You Never Give Me Your Money (Take 36)
9. Her Majesty (Takes 1-3)
10. Golden Slumbers /Carry That Weight (Takes 1-3 / Medley)
11. Here Comes The Sun (Take 9)
12. Maxwell’s Silver Hammer (Take 12)

Disc 3 (CD): Sessions
1. Come Together (Take 5)
2. The End (Take 3)
3. Come And Get It (Studio Demo)
4. Sun King (Take 20)
5. Mean Mr Mustard (Take 20)
6. Polythene Pam (Take 27)
7. She Came In Through The Bathroom Window (Take 27)
8. Because (Take 1 – Instrumental)
9. The Long One (Trial Edit & Mix – 30 July 1969)
(Medley: You Never Give Me Your Money , Sun King , Mean Mr Mustard , Her Majesty , Polythene Pam , She Came In Through The Bathroom Window , Golden Slumbers , Carry That Weight , The End )
10. Something (Take 39 – Instrumental – Strings Only)
11. Golden Slumbers /Carry That Weight (Take 17 – Instrumental – Strings & Brass Only)

Blu-Ray:

Audio Features:
– Dolby Atmos
– 96kHz/24 bit DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
– 96kHz/24 bit High Res Stereo (2019 Stereo Mix)

Largely as had been expected from the leak, with some additional detail in the descriptions, a few of the tracks recorded together split, the main difference is the addition of the original 1969 stereo mix (the Anthology version was a later mix) of Paul’s Come And Get It  demo, done with Paul and John in the room. As I predicted, the Something  demo has the piano overdub reinstated.

And what do you get with the 2CD Deluxe:

CD 2: Sessions
1. Come Together (Take 5)
2. Something (Studio Demo)
3. Maxwell’s Silver Hammer (Take 12)
4. Oh! Darling (Take 4)
5. Octopus’s Garden (Take 9)
6. I Want You (She’s So Heavy) (Trident Recording Session & Reduction Mix)
7. Here Comes The Sun (Take 9)
8. Because (Take 1 Instrumental)
9. You Never Give Me Your Money (Take 36)
10. Sun King (Take 20)
11. Mean Mr Mustard (Take 20)
12. Polythene Pam (Take 27)
13. She Came In Through The Bathroom Window (Take 27)
14. Golden Slumbers /Carry That Weight (Takes 1-3 / Medley)
15. The End (Take 3)
16. Her Majesty (Takes 1-3)

The straight official ad:

A short look at the different editions:

And Something  has become the first track out of the box:

Giles mix:

studio demo:

take 39 – instrumental – strings only:

Preordered from Beatles store due to Amazon’s cruel treatment of workers and because they broke Woody Allen’s movie contract and shelved A Rainy Day in New York.

Feck! I love this line from Giles in the Rolling Stone article:

It’s the Last Supper. It’s having great sex with an ex-girlfriend. They said, “Let’s do one last great thing.”

Been there, done that.

The Last Supper that is. Never had great sex with an ex-girlfriend.

That was always the plan, as can be seen from the URL where ‘Speculation’ is and was always absent. I would have done it as soon as Apple told the world but couldn’t access the forum.

Have edited my initial post to include a link for anyone new who wishes to jump to the announcement onwards and miss all pre-official announcement discussion.

It’s great that it’s official and happening but would have preferred more outtakes which covered the songs in a little more depth, tho we do also have the Anthology outtakes and the bootlegs and there is very little crossover, would also have liked to hear a few more of the jams that we know are in the vaults and of which we heard ‘Aint She Sweet on ‘Anthology 3 ‘. A mixture of those would be more of an interest than the two Paul demo’s that circulate already (a mix of ‘Come And Get It ‘ is on ‘A3’ plus a stereo mix is on bootleg in wonderful quality) and two Martin instrumentals that remind me of ‘Eleanor Rigby ‘ and ‘Within You and Without You’ on ‘A2’; decent enough but more filler than required.

I also hope that “Golden Slumbers /Carry That Weight (Takes 1-3 / Medley)” is not a condensed sequence like we got on ‘Anthology’ and is instead the full three takes. 

So a little underwhelming when analysed but very pleased it’s coming, will definitely be buying on pre-order, and very much looking forward to delighting in what we are getting.
