call me A True Beatlemaniac
earlier this evening,
i even watched the 007
film Live and Let Die
's closing credits
just to hear Paul
rock out ",
Is it any wonder that when I heard awhile back
that George Martin
(and his son... NOT named Aston)
were "remixing" more than 30 beloved BEATLE tracks
for the new Cirque du Soleil
(a co-production with Apple COrps,
with the blessings of the last two Liverpudlians,
McCartney & Starr, and the widows of Harrison & Lennon)
I COULD NOT WAIT to fall in LOVE
.And now, it's finally here
The Martins, Father & Son,
did something very special:
they made all the songs sound BRAND NEW again. Naiyak ako sa "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
. do you hear that
it's the sound of another generation of NEW BEATLE FANS
falling in LOVE with the Lads from Liverpool.....
THE FIRST TIME EVER SPECIAL EDITION
will include both the stereo CD and a BONUS AUDIO DVD
packaged in a digi-package with O-card.
The DVD is audio only and will contain 81 minutes of music
in both 5.1 surround sound and stereo
(presented in DVD-Audio MLP, DTS, Dolby and PCM). "Love"
is a fascinating reworking
of numerous classic Beatles recordings
by the band's original producer,
Sir George Martin, and his son Giles.
"Love" is also the title of the highly successful
Cirque du Soleil show, a co-production with Apple Corps
featuring the music of the Beatles,
currently wowing audiences in Las Vegas.
In creating the music for the show and for the album,
George and Giles have created a continuous "soundscape"--
a series of well-known Beatles songs
augmented by additional instrumentation and vocals
taken from their vast bank of original multi-track tapes.
If you can imagine "Strawberry Fields Forever"
beginning with John's original demo
before going into an early take of the song
and then climaxing in a musical collage
including the piano solo from "In My Life"
and the harpsichord pattern from "Piggies"
and lots, lots more--
or "Get Back" prefaced by the "Hard Day's Night"
opening guitar chord, the guitar and drum solos from "The End,"
and segued into "Glass Onion,"
you will begin to get the picture.
But hearing is believing!
The guys have pushed back the boundaries
and come up with a brand-new work
that will add to the enduring legacy of the band.
The result is an amazing album
that not only reinforces the timeless quality
of the group's recordings--
the fans will have fun enjoying the roller-coaster experience
of the album whilst trying to spot where all the pieces come from--
it is also destined
to open up a new legion of fans to the Beatles experience. TRACK LIST
