Performer Notes
  • The Beatles: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, George Harrison.
  • Audio Remixer: Paul Hicks.
  • Liner Note Authors: George Martin; Giles Martin.
  • Recording information: AIR Studios.
  • Unknown Contributor Role: Isobel Griffiths.
  • Given his unparalleled talent for innovative recording, mixing, and soundscaping, producer Sir George Martin has always been rightly referred to as "the fifth Beatle." Some 35 years after the Beatles disbanded, Martin was still shaping the group's music, as demonstrated by the 2006 release LOVE. The album (created to coincide with a Cirque du Soleil performance based on Beatles songs) amounts to a musical fantasia centered on the Beatles' output, with famous work from both early and late in the band's career collaged with great care and artistry.
  • Martin's relationship to the band gives him a unique perspective (not to mention access to a vast catalogue of multi-track tapes), which results in a shape-shifting overview that encompasses demo recordings, instrumental passages, and snippets from some of the best-loved Beatles tunes. Beatles fanatics will be in seventh heaven playing "name that reference" on this sonic carpet ride, but LOVE also provides something of an "overture" to the Beatles' oeuvre. The SPECIAL EDITION comes with a bonus audio-only DVD featuring the album in various stereo mixes.

There are really two schools of thought on this album. Either people will think it is an exercise in profiteering to squeeze more money out of The Beatles franchise, or it is a beatifual piece of art created using some of the greatest music of the twentieth century.

This album could have been complete rubbish. But, luckily for us, original Beatles producer, George Martin, along with his son Giles, have produced something pretty special here. They have sorted through piles of Beatles recordings and pieced together a fantastic creation from it. Some of the things they have done here are ingenious. The end result is something that sounds very familiar, but at the same time is very new and fresh. This is no cheap hip-hop remix. This is a handcrafted musical experiment - actually probably similar to much of the studio experimentation that the Fab Four did themselves.

The next question is: how long will it be before other artists music gets the same treatment.
