498 Productions can now confirm that the next Beatles box set of remixes and outtakes shall be Revolver. This is exciting and welcomed news indeed as Revolver is clearly one of the best, if not the best, of the Beatles remarkable albums. Fans will soon be able to hear Revolver tracks mixed in a way not previously possible due to the limitations of the four-track recorder used at Abbey Road in 1966 and the lack of technology to separate instruments recorded together on a single track. But now each instrument and vocal can be separated, allowing producer and engineer to mix instruments and vocal with greater freedom. Based on the fabulous mixes previously done by Giles Martin and the Abbey Road engineers, the Revolver remixes by Giles and Sam Okell are sure to be incredible. In addition, there will no doubt be an interesting collection of outtakes.
