In just a few weeks, the new stereo mix of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
will be available as a CD, LP, and a special edition box set, and already word is getting out that Giles Martin's new remix--based on the Beatles original mono mix from 1967--is getting rave reviews.
Check out the first sneak peak of from the album's outtakes, Take 9 of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" which only reaffirms Giles Martin's recent comments about how loud The Beatles played in the studio. "Originally, I was against remixing the Beatles," Martin told Mojo
magazine in a new interview. "But there’s a technical answer, which is that the stereo mix was never theirs and the mono mix, which they did themselves and is superior, does sound ‘old’, like it was done 50 years go. But this is one of the most important albums of all time – I don’t want it to ever sound ‘old’. Nor do the Beatles."
