-- Hand-holding Songs from the 1960s by a group called The Beatles are selling
well, reports Apple and Apple (the Beatles' Apple). The albums that sounded good on LP and single now sound
almost as good in their remastered form. The first four albums contained songs
appropriate for the teens of the 1960s. Recorded at the time when toilets were
banned from TV shows and moms and dads had separate bedrooms, the love songs
often tell of "me" and "you", though one is titled She
Loves You, a clever third person lyric for the times.
The recently released “1”
collection now features promotional videos of the songs. The videos may be
partly in black and white, but all but three of the songs are in stereo and
some are even in 5.1 surround stereo. In this case, you get a little 3D depth
of the stereo mixes. Vocals have been moved to the center in most songs so that
they would be iTunes and iPod friendly as well. Beatles experts prefer the new
mixes on speakers.
