I’ve just received the announcement millions of Beatles fans have been waiting for: the entire back catalog has been remastered. The CDs will be released Sept. 9 — the date the Beatles Rock Band game is released. Plus, every song the Beatles released in mono will be re-released, meaning that many of us will hear classics like “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” as they were originally intended to be heard. Beatles’ engineer Geoff Emerick told me in 2007 that he spent much more time on the mono mixes of most songs, since that was the predominant format up until the late 1960s — Sgt. Pepper included.
Here’s a link to the official news release for all the details.
