The Beatles’ Remixed “Oh! Darling” from “Abbey Road” 50th Anniversary Edition As If Someone Turned the Lights On


For fifty years we listened to “Abbey Road” and thought it was just fine. Now we’re getting little bits of the remixed 50th anniversary edition and it’s like someone turned the lights on in the room. Today Apple released “Oh! Darling” and it’s a new world– the drums, the bass, piano, Paul’s voice are now urgently crisp or crisply urgent. How lovely. The whole set comes out on September 27th and lists on Amazon at a reasonable $89.99. Come and get it, indeed!
