The classic original Beatles studio albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilising 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 Beatles catalogue has seen since its original release.
Within each CD's new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. The newly produced mini-documentaries on the making of each album, directed by Bob Smeaton, are included as QuickTime files on each album. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.

A Bit Of Darkness Creeps In Courtesy Of John

"The rush of their first three albums is supplanted here by a melancholia. The harmonies show them to be at their most Everly Brothers-influenced ever. The album jacket reveals them to look world-wearied, however, that doesn't neccessarily inform the material. Though "Mr. Moonlight" is a lapse of prudent judgement and "Kansas City" sounds uptight, the other covers work. "Rock And Roll Music" has some of the shivering explosiveness of "Money" and "Twist And Shout" and I do love the charm of Ringo singing "Honey Don't". George's rockabilly guitar phrasings inspire both Carl Perkins inclusions. The John and Paul duet on Buddy Holly's "Words Of Love" bests his great original and there goes George's fine fretwork again. "Every Little Thing" is just another irresistable euphoric love song in the Lennon-McCartney catalogue. But the striking "I'm A Loser", "Baby's In Black" and "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" let the darkness creep in. And first prize goes to John's scornful "No Reply", a complete story of repudiated lover and a double-crossing woman with an assertive lead vocal that intensifies its drama."
