RE-UP: The Beatles "Revolution" - 1CD - remastered edition

Remastered Edition

Restored from Vigotone VT-117

This is a restoration I did in 2002, correcting the pitch and phase of all the tracks on this Vigotone CD. Some of the tracks were wildly off-pitch, especially "Girl," which was halfway to chipmunk-land. Of special note here is the restored acetate of the mono mix of "Revolution 9." With the scratches, clicks and thumps removed, you can actually hear what's going on in it now. Anything that was previously booted is in the best quality to date on this CD, and it had several items that were previously unheard by Beatles collectors.

No noise reduction was applied; if you hear any, it was already there before I got to it.

Track listing:

01  Mellotron music #1
02  Girl (backing track, monitor mix)
