Well the product pretty much speaks for itself, another lovingly put together Beatles special deluxe edition. What I'd like to stress here is that if you opt for Badlands as your record dealer of choice you're guaranteed to receive it on the eagerly awaited day of release and the packaging will be professional to the highest degree so that the package is received in perfect condition. I have bought all the Beatles and Springsteen box sets in recent years from Badlands and have yet to be disappointed. Recommended with complete confidence.

I bought the Abbey Road LP 50 years ago when I was 14 years old. Who'd have thought that half a century later I would be enjoying this tremendous expanded edition.
Abbey Road was the last LP recorded by The Beatles although it came out before the Let It Be album. Like most Beatle fans I loved the music contained on the original LP which was the last collective collaboration with their hugely talented Producer George Martin.
On the new release Giles Martin - son of George - has given the overall sound a sparkling remix - although to be fair it was pretty good in the first place. This package comes with two CDs full of session extras. Demos and alternative takes including lush orchestral instrumentation scored by George Martin.
I particularly enjoyed the run through of I Want You at Trident studios where an engineer (I presume) asks the band to turn down their amps because someone outside has complained about the noise. Lennon, of course, refuses and wants one last run through at full volume.
There is a blu-ray disc which contains surround sound mixes of the original LP. I have yet to play this, but look forward to hearing it in my home cinema soon.
The deluxe edition comes with a lavish coffee table size book full of fascinating information and quite a few photos that aren't familiar to me which is saying something as I have a vast archive of Beatle material.
This was a birthday present from my partner Wendy and what a treat it is. I highly recommend it - buy it from Badlands if you want one.Brilliant independent shop.
