Revolver / The Beatles Revolver 5CD super deluxe

SDE Reader Rating

2.1

The reissue of The Beatles’ 1966 album Revolver has been officially confirmed and is coming in late October. There will be six physical formats, including a 5CD super deluxe edition and a 4LP+7″ super deluxe.

All formats offer a new stereo mix by Giles Martin and Sam Okell, sourced “directly from the original four-track master tapes” and utilising Peter Jackson’s WingNut Films’ cutting edge ‘de-mixing’ technology, which allows the separation of music previously ‘bounced down’ and fused together on one track.

The 5CD edition offers the stereo mix, two discs of ‘Sessions’ (outtakes, rehearsals and demos), a CD featuring the original mono mix “from the original master tape” and finally, a four-track EP which features new stereo mixes of non-album single ‘Paperback Writer’/’Rain’, along with the original mono versions.

Controversially, there is no blu-ray with the CD box set. Every Beatles CD box set since the album reissues started back in 2017, has contained a blu-ray with a spatial audio mix (Sgt. Pepper actually had a blu-ray and a DVD) so to omit this from Revolver is a truly bizarre decision. An Atmos Mix has been created but it is simply not being made available physically, which is going to disappoint many fans. No blu-ray also denies us a hi-res stereo version of the new mix on a physical format.

The 4LP vinyl super deluxe matches the content of the 5CD set. The four-track EP is a seven-inch single in this edition. Both super deluxe sets feature a 100-page hardcover book which showcases Klaus Voorman’s original artwork, features a foreword by Paul McCartney, chapters by Kevin Howlett and an essay by Questlove.

The other formats are a 2CD edition, a single vinyl LP, a single CD and a vinyl picture disc (D2C only). The 2CD set offers highlights from the sessions on the bonus CD, the new stereo remixes of ‘Paperback Writer’ and ‘Rain’ and a 40-page booklet. Amazon in the US have an exclusive version of the single vinyl (with the new stereo mix) which includes a Revolver slipmat. However, it is $10 more expensive than the standard vinyl listing on the same site.

Revolver will be reissued on 28 October 2022 via UMC/Apple. Pre-order links will be updated throughout the day, so check back.
