THE BEATLES: 1

Product Description
Digitally remastered edition of this collection from the Fab Four comprised entirely of #1 hits from UK and the U.S, For the 2009 remasters, each track was remastered by a dedicated team of engineers at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilizing state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the catalog has seen since its original release. The 32 page booklet remains faithful to the original, featuring a foreword by George Martin, along with international cover art, as well as recording and release information on each one of the #1 tracks on the CD.

Proving yet again their willingness to dice ‘n’ slice their burgeoning legacy into new–if not exactly fresh–product, the Fab Four Minus One have released this single-disc compendium of their No. 1 hits. Though obviously superfluous to the faithful (who may also find themselves quibbling over the precise definition of “No. 1 hit” and the exclusion of seeming contenders like “Please Please Me” and “Strawberry Fields”), newly arrived visitors from the Pleiades star cluster and other neophytes will find it a concise and generous (nearly 80 minutes) single-disc introduction to the band’s career-spanning, unparalleled dominance of pop music in the 1960s. But beyond being a mere trophy case of commercial success (and it won’t be hard to find critics who’ll argue that these singles aren’t even the band’s best work), it’s also a Cliff’s Notes take on a remarkable seven-year run of musical evolution, one that stretches from the neo-skiffle of “Love Me Do” through a remarkable synthesis of R&B, rockabilly, Tin Pan Alley, gospel, country, and classical that still defies efforts to effectively deconstruct it. This is the pop monument equivalent of the ’27 Yankees and ’90s Bulls; it’s every bit as obvious and dominating–and just as essential. –Jerry McCulley –This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.
