The Beatles - Abbey Road Super Deluxe 50th Anniversary Edition
Box set - 3CDs + Blu-ray
2019 release - out end September
This is the first time Abbey Road has been remixed and presented with additional session recordings and demos. 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.
This Super Deluxe Edition of Abbey Road features 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.
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 it's 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The gorgeous book is illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photographs, including many taken by Linda McCartney; never before published images of handwritten lyrics, sketches, and a George Martin score; Beatles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.
