Love is an unprecedented approach to the Beatles' catalog, featuring wildly alternative mixes and "mash-ups," the combining of two or more Beatles tunes mixed together for a wholly unique song.

The project came about when Paul and Ringo, along with Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison, approached legendary producer Sir George Martin about making experimental mixes from their master tapes. Actually, Martin says that the concept was born several years before when George Harrison and Guy Laliberte, the founder of Cirque du Soleil, began to explore the possibilities of a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil and the Beatles. Out of that vision, Love was born. Martin and his son, Giles, have created a completely unique soundscape. Says Martin: "My brief was to create a soundscape of around one and a half hour's length using any sound I needed from the original Beatles multi-track recordings. It was an offer one could hardly refuse."

Opinions will no doubt vary as to the validity of these new mixes. Purists may be offended. Those thirsting for new Beatles material may be thrilled. One thing's for certain: Love will be among the most talked about releases in many years.

"This album puts the Beatles back together again, because suddenly there's John and George with me and Ringo," said Paul McCartney. "It's kind of magical."

Mind Blowing LP

Reviewer: Vincent Cortese
This LP set is so good, it is hard to believe. After being mezmerized by hearing the vinyl a few times, I compared it with the CD and also the 5.1 DVD-Audio Advanced Surround Layer and sonically, the vinyl is a far more rounded, fuller, more balanced sound with no indication whatsoever of etchy digitized brightness as on the others. While the 5.1 is a fantastic and fun ride, the vinyl is a much better and more fulfilling listening experience for me. A truly masterful job. Get it while you can.


Great album!!

I've heard the Beatles on LP for well over 30 years. I've listened to my lps on my pretty nice stereo and I've heard them on stereos I can't afford. I've heard some good sounds.

Simply, this pressing is better than all of those. The remastering and pressing quality is without equal. When I listen to this I think, there is no way this is 40 year old recordings and man... i cannot believe how good this sounds!

It's just really something you should have if you are into your turntable at all. It's just an excellent pressing with excellent packaging. The music is fresh and sounds so new, alive and relevant!

I'll add that I owned the CD of this prior and the LP is far better.


Outstanding

The best Beatles album I have ever owned. I don't own but a couple so that was easy. The recordings are different then what I was used to hearing on the radio. Much nicer mix or maybe just freshened up but I can tell you that my wife and I really enjoy this one. I put it on as background music durring a dinner party and pretty soon had everyone gathered listening and enjoying this album.

Pure Beatles Magic! A superior recording that everyone should own. Having personally seen 'Love' in Vegas, this wonderful recording brought all those feelings and emotions back in a flash. Seamlessly woven together, one song flows to the next. A very impressive effort, all four sides sound awesome! I got two.


Everything was great, a true pleasure to listen to.

I received my order in record time, well packaged and in immaculate condition. The added documents - full color booklet and other artwork increased my pleasure exponentially. I already owned the CD, but once again found that - Vinyl Rules!


LOVE the Beatles

Reviewer: Kent Paris
My life changed the evening of February 9, 1964. Not quite twelve years old, I sat transfixed before our old, Magnavox black and white television as Ed Sullivan introduced the Beatles. It may as well have been a private concert just for me. As they strummed their guitars and sang, I was swept away to some other place that is still hard for me to explain to this day some forty years later. I stood on tiptoes awaiting the release of each new single or LP. As a Beatle purist, the notion of molesting their songs was repugnant. I was skeptical when LOVE hit the scene. I'm pleased to say that I visited my happy place listening to LOVE. The choral opening, Because, grabbed me from the outset. It's a fresh experience with familiar old friends. A worthy journey. 40+ years later, I LOVE the Beatles.


Love The Beatles, Hate the title

Being a Cirque employee, I was at the opening night party with the remaining Beatles, the widows and kids as well as everyone else involved in this project - HELL YA! The show is great and the mix is awesome, even though I am a purist with all the original vinyl. I am disappointed with the title. It was either that or "The Boys", either way you're stuck with a great album/show and a bad title. Enough ranting, just buy it already.....and go see the show.


Recording as Great as the Music

I was skeptical as ....well, anyone who loves the Beatles music. But, to keep this short, what an incredible job ! Hats off to both George and Giles Martin. A fast paced walk down memory lane that gave me goosebumps at times. The entire package is stunning, but the vinyl is some of the most incredible i've ever heard. You will be reminded why you hate 16 bit CD's, mpg's..etc after hearing this. Don't hesitate...get this VINYL album!

I suspect this was mixed and mastered in high rez digital but regardless, the sound thrashes the original pop mixes; and the artistic license taken is refreshing. Now... to remix the entire Beatles catalogue all analogue to vinyl with this level of integrity, and forget the vocals in one channel and the instruments in the other mistake.


What a joy!

What a joy to hear these classic Beatles tunes remastered and mixed into this new release. The continuity of the entire release is magical and to hear it with the warmth of vinyl is mesmerizing.

If you are a Beatles fan, this re-engineered compilation is for you. The quality of the recording itself is worth the money. George Martin, once again, shows us just how instrumental he was with the Beatles sound.

A Must have for any Beatles lover. An absolute gem!!!!!

I thought I'd put on my headphones to check out this album briefly but an hour later I'm sitting on the floor mesmerized by the unbelievable beauty that has unfolded before my very ears. George Martin is genious, as were those 4 talented mop-tops from Liverpool. We are all so very fortunate that they all spent time together creating these masterpieces for us. Rejoice: The Beatles live on!


best Beatles vinyl i've heard

Reviewer: alan nix
finally, superior analog production of Beatles masters. Better than "let it be, naked". Certainly superior to Japanese pressings that are cut from digital sources. I've yet to figure out the purpose of the Japanese pressings. "love" is worthy of all Beatles/analog fans.

THIS IS A MUST HAVE!!!! I would say that this album could be for anyone fan or not to appreciate the ingenious works that 4 young chaps pulled off in 10 years. I CANNOT WAIT ANY longer for it to come out on vinyl so i can fully appreciate it.
