Beatles / 1 gatefold double vinyl with brand new stereo remixes

beatles_1vinylspread

Out early next month is the double vinyl LP edition of The Beatles1 compilation featuring the brand new stereo remixes created by Giles Martin.

The CD edition was issued last week along with the various Blu-ray / DVD packages and as can be seen from the image above, this gatefold 2LP 180g vinyl set looks to be well-packaged affair with four art cards (11′ x 8.5′), a poster (33′ x 22′) and two inner jackets packed with images of original single sleeves.

Interestingly, the previous versions of 1, featuring the 2009 remasters (first issued in 2011), are set to be quietly withdrawn and the new CD and vinyl versions with the new stereo remixes will supersede them.

1 on 2LP vinyl will be released on 4 December 2015.

    Hmm, I never got around to picking up the previous vinyl edition. Any real reason to do so?

  2. andrew R says:

    And if you have the original vinyl from 2000 what mixes are those?inferior or superior ,or unless you have bat ear-ior nothing at all!

  3. Mark says:

    Paul, I assume Giles essentially used the 24/192 digital archive studio masters created from the analogue tapes by the Abbey road digitalisation team, the same 24/192 masters used to produce the 24/44.1 2009 mixes that appeared in the apple USB?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      If you’re talking about the new vinyl, it wouldn’t be the same as the stereo masters for the USB because they were remasters where these are remixes. So Giles has been working from digital transfers of the original multi-tracks to create the remixes for the new version. I guess once the team had the remixes approved new stereo versions were created and *they* were used for the recent releases including this vinyl.

  4. Mark says:

    Obviously these are new mixes and so do we expect the full studio albums to be remixed again and mastered to 24/96 as well?

  5. It looks like the album packaging is about the same as the original 2000 vinyl, i.e., the poster, inner sleeves and 4 art pictures of the band. I’m debating getting this on vinyl – let’s see how much I spend on Record Store Day!

  6. Tobias says:

    I compared the CD version of the songs to those of the recent red and blue albums and could not hear any difference.
    Hence, I think you will get the same (good) remasters that were used for those vinyls, too, again. And they did announce them as being being remastered from the original analogue sources!

    So, if you already have the new red and blue vinyls, you don´t need to get “1” as all songs are there, too.

  7. Tobias says:

    Yes, I do… sorry, I didn´t hear any difference! May you tell me where?

  8. greg says:

    Beware the new mixes. I have the cd and they are VERY loud and dynamically compressed. Im really disappointed in this. The beatles don’t need to be loud leave the dynamics alone

  9. Daveyman19 says:

    Got the CD/DVD package yesterday and I can hear some definate differences on initial listening and comparing/contract to the 200 edition – Paperback Writer especially sticks out to me as the vocal is more centred and the harmonies at the start have a more pronounced echo, much like the mono version.

    The 5.1 surround is great, and after reading the article on the BBC about why Giles only used reverb for the rear channels, it makes sense now as otherwise it would be too gimmicky/distracting having one of the instruments sat on the rear channels.

  10. Jimmy King says:

    Without question ,every time a new Beatles disc is released it is trounced by audiophiles as being compressed as hell. As this has been noted for years of releases , and if its so bad , why do labels continue to release Cds with this audio trait?

    • John Sayers says:

      Because most people these days are listening on non-audiophile devices such as laptops, I-pads, smart phones, etc. and loudly complain when music is too “quiet” and they can’t turn the volume up enough to suit them since they have no “wattage” to speak of like the few of us left that have actual home stereo systems. Nothing new here, unfortunately.

  11. Greg says:

    The Neil Young Archives on DVD are a pleasure to listen to and I was hoping that the Beatles remasters box from 2011 would be the same.

    Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case as the musical dynamics were sacrificed by boosting the lowest signals until everything was loud. Very disappointing that they let the Beatles legacy get brickwalled like this and, as a result, I’m very wary of new Beatles product right now.

  12. Gisabun says:

    So another stereo mix of “1”. Giles didn’t like his father’s mixes from 15 years ago?
