Bob Boilen at the NPR show All Songs Considered has interviewed producer Giles Martin about how he and the engineers at Abbey Road studios cleaned up the newly found tapes of The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl, due out on September 9.
Martin clearly sent over some additional recordings for the program to use during the interview and these give us some more indications of what to expect. During the conversation there’s a comparison between the 1977 vinyl release of ‘She Loves You’ directly alongside the 2016 version, and then a lengthy extract of how ‘Ticket to Ride’ now sounds.
The new versions of ‘Twist and Shout’ and ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ are now available for purchase on iTunes. ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ is also up on Vevo in full as a stream on the All Songs Considered page.
And don’t forget, there’s another interview with producer Giles Martin (covering similar ground – and more) by the boys at the Fab 4 Free 4 All podcast.
