Fantastic Animation of the Beatles career. WOW!
Well, I never play video games, but this one might be fun for the rock trivia geek in me. Incredible animation in that clip.So every decade or so the surviving Beatles get together to produce something new to enhance or milk their legacy (depending on your cynicism level). But the gamers deserve something like this to play with. Meanwhile, of all the remasters that are coming out, I'm curious to hear Magical Mystery Tour, which supposedly corrects the flaky "enhanced stereo" mixes on some of the tracks. (I suppose you could make a "lo-fi cool" argument for "I Am The Walrus", which switches from psychedelic stereo to muddy mono mid-song, but I've always found that annoying.) I look forward to hearing my second favorite Brit-psych-pop album of 1967 (after Their Satanic majesties Request) in a new light. Plus, youngsters will finally be able to hear the mono version of Sgt. Pepper, which is way better than the stereo version.
Maybe its because you first heard Sergeant Pepper in mono, and Magical Mystery Tour in stereo. Imprints, always surfacing!
'Tis true. 'tis true.Mind you, having re-obtained the entire catalog of those guys quite recently in order to fill the iPod, I've started to get used to the stereo mixes, but certain songs like "I'm Only Sleeping" or "Tomorrow Never Knows" still don't sound quite right to my ears. ("The backwards guitar is supposed to come in HERE, damn it!")
