The panel goes over the new Revolver Super Deluxe remix (2022).
Topics covered: Revolver's importance in the Beatles' history and discography, Ray Davies' contemporary review of the album (not as mean as you might have heard, but also dismissive of major songs in a funny way), the murky meaning of "remaster" and "remix" and a summary of the history of Beatles re-releases, a bit of comparison of the new mix with the previous version, Will's grouchy take that these new releases are unnecessary (he was tired, folks), and wondering when the "deez nuts" version will come out.
We then pore over the extra tracks! We talk about the complexity of the early versions, the sadness of the original Yellow Submarine, the fuzz guitar that briefly existed on Got to Get You Into My Life, the insanely fast take of Rain, the magic vibraphone that vanished from I'm Only Sleeping, the disputed account of Paul leaving the session for She Said, She Said, the beauty of Paul's voice, the modernity of George's songs, Ringo's creatively great drumming, the spell John could cast, and more!
Other podcasts go deeper in the facts, but no one else enjoys their own "maybe we're wrong"ness more than us!
Panel: Will Hines, Brett Morris, Katie Platner, Joel Spence
