    146. “1″ to treasure, December 4, 2015
    By 
    This review is from: 1 [2 LP][Remixed/Remastered] (Vinyl)

    Can’t remember whether “1″ was available on vinyl upon its original 2000 release, but, following the superb, new “1+” CD editions from last month, “1″ now makes its appearance on vinyl. Pressed as a 180gram heavyweight double-LP, it repeats the exact same tracklist (every No. 1 single released in the UK and US from 1962 to 1970), presenting some of the band’s most important single releases, and featuring the same “1+” brand new stereo mixes by Giles Martin and Abbey Road engineer Sam Okell. As expected, the song selection is nothing less than extraordinary, representing each of the band’s different styles and phases, all of which are appropriately presented on each of the 2 long-players’ 4 sides: Side 1. Merseybeat style (1962-1964); Side 2. folk-rock (1965-1966, tracks 9-16); Side 3. experimental-psychedelic (1967-1968, tracks 17-21); and Side 4. back to basics-rock (1969-1970, tracks 22-27).

    As I have previously listened to these songs on CD, without a doubt the “1+” versions are the very best to date, as far as the quality is concerned. The vinyl sounds just as brilliant. Remixed from the original multi-track masters, the audio is sharp, crispy, with the warmth only a vinyl can offer, and crystal-clear, truly an audiophile’s dream come true (I listen to my music on headphones). I am not a vinyl lover, however, since the editions I purchased (CD+blu-ray, and CD+2blu-ray) were perfect, I thought it would be nice to have the “1+” collection complete with this LP set. The package is presented in a 2LP gatefold, and has a kind of anniversary feel to it, including 4 individual photos of each Beatle, and a poster with the covers of their singles, making it rather special. It does not includes a booklet, which I find to be the only flaw. It is a fine item, worth collecting (just a note: this is not an Apple release, I found out about it once bought).

    The original version of “1″, issued on the 30th anniversary of the band’s break-up, was The Beatles’ first singles compilation available on a single disc, topped the charts in 35 countries around the world, and went on to become the best-selling album of 2000, and the best-selling album of the decade worldwide, selling 31+ million copies. What sets this particular collection apart from others, is that it spans The Beatles’ entire recording career. So many artists, current and past, have called The Beatles a major influence. One listen to “1″, and anyone can realize why. The Beatles redefined music. If there has been any singles album that shows the true genius of The Beatles, on any level, then it is definitely “1″. Not a greatest hits collection, but it totally stands like one, being a comprehensive compilation, and one of the most important music collections ever released. Whichever edition you choose, it is absolutely worth it.

    Here, I’ve listed the songs included on “1″, along with the release dates, and chart placings.

    APPLE RECORDS: PLEASE REMIX THE WHOLE CATALOGUE, December 6, 2015

    Spectacular re-issue that, for those of us who have been listening to these records since they were originally released, is nothing short of a revelation. The hard left/hard right simplicity of many of the original stereo mixes are brought up to date, as voices and instruments are placed tastefully across a wide soundstage. Details previously buried in the mix have finally been brought to light. And OMG, Ringo’s snare! Check out Day Tripper or Paperback Writer. The only negative is that when you finish with this set you will be desperate for MORE. We’ve now gotten two reissues that illustrate how exciting these remixed tracks can be (do you want to come as close as you’ll ever get to hearing John in YOUR room singing Lucy in the Sky? You need to listen to Yellow Submarine Songtrack). Please Apple Records: REMIX the rest! And thanks for this outstanding reissue (the blu ray/cd set is a must have as well!)
