Hey Folks I just saw this on the Beatles Web site. Your thoughts?

"Download and Streaming. Dolby Atmos Mixes + original mono mix accompany never-before-released session recordings and demos, plus the “Paperback Writer” and “Rain” EP".

Can this be Downloaded?
I mean… Apple Music let’s you download music for offline use on iOS/iPadOS/MacOS.

Could be that.

Or it could be a download site, like those codes you get with vinyl records. I guess we’ll see…

Maybe the marketing department is riffing on a Psycho theme like Eleanor Rigby for the excitement factor. I’m still entitled to my tantrum until they clean up their messaging!

It has been a mess, for sure! One of the best examples of how NOT to announce an important music release. Make it nearly impossible to know for sure how this digital release (or releases?) is going to be done & if the download will include Atmos mix.

The idiots still haven't made this clear less than a month from release date. Unbelievable for such a high profile album.

Absolutely shitty marketing! Gross incompetence, deliberately hiding details or making it up as they go.

Dunno, but this Giles Martin interview popped up.
Says he's been in New York for the launch promotion.

They built him a "great big Atmos immersive room" so he can do playbacks to 30 people at a time.



I guess I tempered my disappointment that there was no surround version of Revolver (which is my favorite of their albums) by the belief that it was a 4 track only and so couldn't be separated. In the interview, the tech allowed him to separate the instruments out that he got from the cops, so now I am disappointed again.

I contacted Burning Shed and tried to get the Download issue clarified which in the end they couldn't do. They contacted Universal to try and get a definitive answer to the question and Universal never replied. I certainly won't be forking out £130 for such an overpriced box set that I wouldn't play the half of. It's all a bit of a pigs ear at the moment.

By the way, it appears shipments of the Super Deluxe sets have been delayed by a week or two. Speculation running rampant that they are now going to include a BluRay with surround mix after all the complaints. That would be nice, but I’d be surprised…….

I hope you are right but it sounds like wishful thinking. You'd think it would take more than a few weeks to create, mass produce, and package a Blu-ray to include.

Although,,,, I suppose they could include a voucher for a future Blu-ray that will be released as a stand-alone right before Christmas.,,,,

Now who is guilty of wishful thinking .... :LOL:

When the Get Back release was delayed, there was also speculation that additional content would be included in response to complaints. Needless to say that never happened and neither will a Blu-ray in the Revolver box set.

Yep, the 3 of them are already in Apple Music
im not a McCartney bAsher, and “McCartney“ has long been a favorite, but the new mix, especially the ATMOS, exposes how raw and un polished many of the performances were, along with the production.

Seems like a weird choice out of all the possible McCartney albums to give the Atmos treatment IMO.

Considering how and where it was recorded, its no surprise. I thought they did a decent job with the surround mix, again considering the source.
