hayzzz...the beatles...the greatest band....greatest composers also....i also luv their music, melodic & sweeet. Real Love have recently been my fav. im inlove w/ it!
You are so right and as a small child back in the 60s, Saw them on TV for the 1st time on the Ed Sullivan show.They Changed the world and music as we all know it.They Inspired me to play music and I'm so greatfull.When I heard "Free as a Bird" for the first time,I cried and "Real Love"was so like if It could have been on The Sgt Pepper Lp but I like what George said on The Beatles Anthology aka The Long and Winding Road DVD before he passed away,He stated that it sounds like them now and I agree.
You know If MJ was still Alive,I would have wished to hear him sing Here There Everywhere.I could hear him sing it in my mind and I guess in a dream,That's where I'll get to hear it now that's he's gone.
The love you take is equal to the love you make
The love you take is equal to the love you make
I swear I searched for a Beatles thread and didn't find anything at all
Thanks for bump it
Beatles are extremely overrated.

Earlier this year, the Beatles' animated film Yellow Submarine was cleaned up for a reissue on DVD and Blu-ray. Next up, their 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour will receive a similar treatment. This previously out-of-print flick will drop on DVD and Blu-ray on October 9 through Apple Films.
The live-action Magical Mystery Tour is just under an hour in length and is about a group of people (including the four Beatles) who embark on a psychedelic, acid-drenched bus trip. The footage was restored by the same folks who touched up Yellow Submarine, and the soundtrack (which features songs like "I Am the Walrus" and "The Fool on the Hill") was remixed for stereo and surround sound.
Among the reissue's bonus features are brand new interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and other cast and crew members. There's also a director's commentary track by Paul, plus a 19-minute making-of feature (which includes some of the aforementioned interviews), deleted scenes, new edits of song performances, a BBC promo and more. The band Traffic show up with a video for their song "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush," which was commissioned for the film but not includes
Those seeking the ultimate Magical Mystery Tour experience can purchase the 10"x10" boxed edition. It includes both the DVD and Blu-ray versions of the movie, along with a 60-page book and a double 7-inch EP containing the film's six original songs (this version recreates the soundtrack's original UK release).
For the first time ever, the film will also receive a limited theatrical release on September 27. While the participating cities and theatres have yet to be confirmed, there will be Canadian screenings, according to the press release.
The film, which was directed by the Beatles themselves, received poor reviews upon its original release. We'll have to see whether time has made the critics any kinder.
Magical Mystery Tour
"Rubber Soul" is the major turning point in the maturation of the band, it's a great album from start to finish.

And it includes a gorgeous 252-page hardbound book written by award-winning radio producer Kevin Howlett, and features dedicated chapters for each of the albums as well as tremendous insight into the remasters and how the LPs were prepared. In addition, the 12 x 12 book boasts a wealth of great Beatles images and photos.
Proper care and a painstaking series of steps were taken to ensure that music lovers would hear the Fab Four in all their glory. With EMI’s legendary Abbey Road Studios providing the backdrop, the four-year restoration process combined veteran expertise, state-of-the-art equipment, vintage studio gear, and rigorous testing to net what is without doubt the highest fidelity possible and authentic, jaw-dropping sound guaranteed to rival the original LPs. There is no longer any need to pay hundreds of dollars for Japanese pressings.
At the start of the restoration process, engineers conducted extensive tests before copying the analog master tapes into the digital realm 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 it was determined that doing so didn’t at all damage the integrity of the songs. Similarly, 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.
In cutting the digital masters to vinyl, stringent safeguards and procedures were employed. After cutting to lacquer, determined to be warmer and consistent than cutting to DMM, the next step was to use the Neumann VMS80 cutting lathe at Abbey Road. Following thorough mechanical and electrical tests to ensure it was operating in peak condition, engineer Sean Magee cut the LPs in chronological release order. He used the original 24-bit remasters rather than the 16-bit versions that were required for CD production. It was also decided to use the remasters that had not undergone ‘limiting,' a procedure to increase the sound level.
Having made initial test cuts, Magee pinpointed any sound problems that can occur during playback of vinyl records. To rectify them, changes were made to the remasters with a Digital Audio Workstation. For example, each vinyl album was listened to for any‘sibilant episodes.' vocal distortion that can occur on consonant sounds such as S and T. These were corrected by reducing the level in the very small portion of sound causing the undesired effect.
Similarly, any likelihood of inner-groove distortion was addressed. As the stylus approaches the center of the record, it is liable to track the groove less accurately. This can affect the high-middle frequencies, producing a ‘mushy’ sound particularly noticeable on vocals. Using whatMagee has described as ‘surgical EQ,’ problem frequencies were identified and reduced in level to compensate for this.
The last phase of the vinyl mastering process began with the arrival of the first batches of test pressings made from master lacquers that had been sent to the two pressing plant factories. Stringent quality tests identified any noise or click appearing on more than one test pressing in the same place. If this happened, it was clear that the undesired sounds had been introduced either during the cutting or the pressing stage and so the test records were rejected. In the quest to achieve the highest quality possible, the Abbey Road team worked closely with the pressing factories and the manufacturers of the lacquer and cutting styli.
For this project, there was no such thing as too many cooks in the kitchen. Yes, it took a village to get it right.
