50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper will see an expanded edition of the ground-breaking album.
Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has said the new version of their album is ‘great, like the original four-track. But now my drums are back, the over-dubs and things lost them originally. Now they are back. I’m so happy to hear it the way we did it.’
“Now, the drums have been lifted and come through as they should. He was pleased. You’ll be glad to know it was remastered at EMI Studios where it was originally recorded.”
The news was published by Keith Allison on Facebook, the former Paul Revere & the Raiders bassist who has worked with Starr. He said – while visiting Starr a couple of months ago the newly remastered album arrived for Ringo’s approval. Naturally, they put it on. “So what did Ringo think?” Allison wrote. “He thought it was great! Why? Because it originally was recorded on a 4-track with a lot of overdubs, which buried the drums. Now, the drums have been lifted and come through as they should. He was pleased. You’ll be glad to know it was remastered at EMI Studios where it was originally recorded.”
On June 1st the world can celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper album – an album that changed music forever.
Ringo and Paul McCartney are the only surviving members of the world-famous band.
