The Beatles’ ‘Revolver’ special edition to be released next month
Get the full details of the newly mixed and expanded special edition here

By Sam Moore, 7th September 2022



A special edition of The Beatles’ classic album ‘Revolver’ is set to be released next month.

First confirmed by Giles Martin – the son of the late Beatles producer George Martin – last month, ‘Revolver’ is the latest Beatles album to be re-released as a remixed and expanded deluxe box set following ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ in 2017, ‘White Album’ (2018), ‘Abbey Road’ (2019) and ‘Let It Be’ (2021).

‘Revolver’, originally released by the four-piece in August 1966, will now be re-released in a range of newly mixed and expanded special edition packages.

All 14 tracks on the original album have been newly mixed by Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell in stereo and Dolby Atmos, while the album’s original mono mix has been sourced from its 1966 mono master tape.

The physical and digital “super deluxe” ‘Revolver’ collections also feature the album’s original mono mix, 28 early takes from the sessions and three home demos. There is also a four-track EP with new stereo mixes and remastered original mono mixes for ‘Paperback Writer’ and ‘Rain’.

The ‘Revolver’ special edition will be available in three formats – “Super Deluxe”, “Deluxe” and “Standard” – and will be released on vinyl, CD and digitally. All of the collections will be released on October 28, with pre-order available now.

You can see the full ‘Revolver’ tracklist, and listen to a new mix of ‘Taxman’, below.

Re: Beatles: Revolver - Deluxe Box Set 10/28

The only one of these I've picked up is the White Album and I was pretty underwhelmed with the Esher demos. For those that have listened to all of them so far...

Which box set do you think had the best demos/outtakes?
If you've listened to the Anthology albums too do any of the outtakes rival the ones found there?


I'm REALLY big on the Anthologies. Go to them as often as any other Beatles album and have pretty much since their release. I have this fear that all of the best outtakes have already been used there as they weren't anticipating anniversary special editions in the mid 90s and that I'll be let down with all of these releases like I was the White Album.

Despite that will pick this up and eventually go back for Abbey Road, Let it Be, and Sgt Pepper because fucking Beatles.

Re: Beatles: Revolver - Deluxe Box Set 10/28

I'm glad we're finally getting remixes of these hard panned stereo mixes. They sound so much better without all the vocals in one speaker.

FYI for anyone disappointed that you have to buy the big box for the hi res/Atmos mixes: Apple music has them as part of their streaming subscription. They even have the Atmos mix of Sgt Pepper, which was not included on the Blu Ray disc with that set.

Yeah, that will be cool. I love the album but only bought mono version (which IMO sounds miles better than the hard panned stereo version).

Would be nice if I could just get that EP by itself.

Re: Beatles: Revolver - Deluxe Box Set 10/28

My favorite Beatles album, by a wide margin.
I pre-ordered the 2 CD version. That's good enough for me.

Re: Beatles: Revolver - Deluxe Box Set 10/28

This is the first Beatles release I will be skipping. I prefer the mono mix for Revolver and so far none of the other remixes have been better than the originals to me. If this had a surround option on BD I would get it, but since it doesn't I don't see spending $140 for two sessions discs that I will listen to a couple of times and a huge book that will be read once at most. I will just put the money towards the upcoming Bob Dylan Bootleg Series, those always give you great bang for your buck.

The original post says Martin made an Atmos mix but isnt listed on any of the discs.

Re: Beatles: Revolver - Deluxe Box Set 10/28

Yeah. I have seen several places where people are losing their minds because a BD with a Hi-Def mix is not included.

I always like to have them included, but I admit that I rarely ever listen to them, so it isn't a dealbreaker for me. But quite strange that it wouldn't be included if one was done. Especially for one of the best albums where a Atmos mix would be quite welcome. there is a lot of speculation out there why it wasn't included but no definitive answer yet.

Re: Beatles: Revolver - Deluxe Box Set 10/28

This will be the first Beatles box set I won't buy. Dropping the BD makes this a much less attractive set. Why drop all that money and you don't even get Hi-Rez?

Some have claimed Apple demanded the Dolby Atmos mix remain a streaming exclusive. Which I could easily believe.

The weird thing is that Apple Music has this up, with only the advance Taxman mix available to play. But it's not in Atmos, only hi res lossless & an Apple digital master. I would think it they were going to be carrying an Atmos mix, it would be on the advance track & listed like it is on the other special editions. Oh well, I'm glad I'm saving some cash on this. The BD is the only reason I bought the others.
