That didn’t take long. Within hours of the announcement on Monday (September 24) of the eagerly awaited 50th Anniversary expanded editions of The BEATLES (White Album), which Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe is releasing on November 9, the 7-disc Super Deluxe edition vaulted to the #1 spot on Amazon in both the U.S. and U.K.
The album’s 30 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio, joined by 27 early acoustic demos (aka the Esher demos) and 50 session takes, most of which are previously unreleased in any form. All of the new packages include Martin’s new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original four-track and eight-track session tapes. Martin’s new mix is guided by the album’s original stereo mix produced by his father, George Martin.
