A treasure trove of Beatles memories If you were alive and reasonably conscious in the Spring of 1967 you might have heard a prematurely released, unauthorized version of a brand new Beatles album on the radio before it quickly disappeared for another 6 weeks. It was a tantalizing treat. At the same time, a new single sounding suspiciously like the Beatles hit the FM airwaves but the record was a red herring: New York Mining Disaster by the BeeGees, who were then new to America and something of a Beatles sound-alike.

His remarkable (consistently underrated) efforts are now heard as what they truly were.The remix of “Pepper” follows the trend of Beatles remixes: going back to the glorious 1999 “Yellow Submarine Songtrack” through to the 2006 “Love” and the revised “1”. They all rectify the extreme “right-left” dichotomy stereo, and almost alway put vocals…
