    Unconfirmed details of the upcoming 50th anniversary “Abbey Road” set are showing up on social media. Here, from a knowledgeable source in direct contact with Apple Corps, is what Beatlefan has heard:
    At this time, the “Abbey Road” 50th anniversary set is 3 cds and a Blu-ray. The first disc is the remix, the second CD is alternate versions in order (with “Her Majesty” in its original spot) and a third disc of tidbits and associated songs from the time period.

    Our source heard the first run-thru of “I Want You” from Feb. 15, 1969, at Trident Studios and said it was “haunting.” The 5.1 surround mix has the “Because” vocals-only, as well as the separated vocals from “Come Together” (which finally settle that is is indeed Paul on backing vocals).

    For the book, Paul has contributed 80 “never before seen” photos by Linda from the studio sessions, and Kevin Howlett has done the majority of the writing.

    At this point, both Paul and Ringo are due to attend the Aug. 28 unveiling of the album at Abbey Road’s Studio 2 in London.

    Finally, some info. Thanks for posting this.

    We do not need a new modern stereo mix, IMHO.

    This is awesome. Giles Martin is likely behind the Dolby Atmos mix. This could be the most immersive mix of all classic rock remixes. I will buy atmos speakers for this occasion. Perhaps he will do a Dolby Atmos of the Love soundtrack too, for complete blowing of the mind. Now if Prog would step up to the plate and take advantage of the technology, it certainly did in early 70’s, albeit usong mostly incredible PA systems, some built by Martin Audio (Pink Floyd, Supertramp, ...).

    To show what is possible with Dolby Atmos, read this:

    A special listening party was held for Sgt Peppers in Dolby Atmos 2 years ago. Abbey Road Studios has a brand new Dolby Mixing system.👍😎

    I can't believe I'm about to buy this album for the...let's see...sixth time?

    I just last weekend finally got around to listening to the Giles Martin 50th anniversary "white" album in it's entirety and i would say it ranges from excellent to absolutely stunning (only nitpick is Rev 9 would have been just fine left alone but the new version is interesting).

    I really look forward to hearing the new Abbey Road.

    I do wish for these releases that I could get just the Blue-Ray disc for the HD and surround mixes. I have no interest in an extra 6 CDs, a book, and a box.

    Here's a link if you want to sample the remix of Something along with a demo version and strings only version, this is awesome stuff.

    https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=Gl...Tvnv1rIjC39qrw

    The remix is pretty mellotron forward which is very cool, the demo sounds like it could have easily ended up on All Things Must Pass if it didn't make it to Abbey Road. Fun stuff!

    I was really impressed with the sound on the White Album remix so I'm on board.

    The mastering has sometimes been questionable, to say the least, but I've been impressed with what I've heard of Giles Martin's remixes themselves. The preview suggests that he's done what I'd hoped he do with regard to instrument/vocal placement.

    As I understand it, it was 'left alone' on his stereo version. I believe that one track was not remixed in stereo at all. He said on the promotional interview that he did remix it for 5.1 though and said it was the remix he was most proud of. I have not heard it so I cannot say.

    ISTR that the white album remix was fairly well received on Steve Hoffman and the like.

    I'll be darned. When i was listening to the album as a whole it just seemed the Rev 9 had a much more 3 dimensional feel to it that i was not used to hearing, some of the sounds just seemed to jump out that i remembered being more subdued. Maybe i was just expecting it to be different after hearing everything that came before.

    ^Could just be the mastering, really- these new releases have tended to be on the loud side.
