I'll be sure to get the mid-tier nice release with booklet and one bonus disc, like I did with Pepper and White Album, then maybe check out the rest of the session dumps on Spotify once.

Although, of all the Beatles' albums, this one is the least in need of something like the essential remixing that Pepper got.

 

I wonder if Let it Be gets a box next year?  Do they have another pass at de-Spectoring it?  Do they just include the existing Let It Be Naked?

I wonder if they'll circle back and catch up on all the rest of the albums for their 60th anniversaries! Or just yearly.

 

Well here are the details for Abbey Road.  All pretty much as expected, in line with the last two reissues.

Nice!  Can't wait to hear the remix

 

Too bad they didn't put Her Majesty back where it was intended

Just listened to the 2009 remaster of Something alongside this new 2019 remix.  Gotta say, I prefer the 2009 remaster.  The new remix sounds....sort of...stretched....like....butter scraped over too much bread....

Taylor Swift on the cutting edge of postmodern pop as usual:

 

 

It sounds like Lords meets Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark; both infinitely superior to this narcissistic twerp.

The last throes of this decade's pop zeitgeist.  Artistically bankrupt, but oh so lucrative.  

I agree...unfortunately :(

It's all about the meta commentary these days Richard.

"Meta commentary", my arse! It's all about a vain, empty, girl, laundering her shitty undies, in public. Why someone hasn't taken her to a nice quiet forest, and put a bullet in her head, is beyond me.

Phil Collins is severely underrated.

 

One of the most successful artists of the '80s is severely underrated? This does not compute ...

 

 

Anyway ... (putting on unbreakable helmet and bulletproof clothing):

 

1. The Seeds Of Love

 

 

Thor: Everybody Loves A Happy Ending is their one and only true masterpiece, even though all their albums are great.

Richard:  Raoul And The Kings Of Spain -> Everything else

Disco Stu: Songs Of The Big Chair for me!

Underrated in an artistic sense, not commercial, obviously.

Listening to Telegraph Road by Dire Straits for the first time ever. I have now lived.

 

First time ever! Wow....

 

Dire Straits was such an integral part of my youth. I think they were my favourite band at one point; in the last part of my childhood years, pre-adolescence and pre-prog rock obsession. These days, I'm not as keen, although I appreciate the accesibility of it all. And LOVE OVER GOLD still remains a masterpiece album, all these years later.

Thanks for that, Steef.

It was said that Baker was the "template" for "harder" rock drummers (Bonzo; Peart; Taylor, etc.).

Cream's 2005 RAH concert DVD is fantastic. It's three older guys, with nothing to prove, just kicking back, and having a ball.
