On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its appearance, the album known as Red (1962-1966) and Blue (1967-1970) the Beatleswhich for generations have served as a gateway to the music of the Liverpool quartet, have been reissued.
Since their debut in 1973, these compilations have led countless listeners of all ages and from all over the world to become lifelong Beatles fans. Now, both collections have been expanded, all songs have been mixed in True Stereo and Dolby Atmos.
Some releases that arrive after the revelation, just a few days ago, of Now And Thenthe last song by The Beatles that artificial intelligence made possible by recovering the voice of the late John Lennon from a demo that he recorded before he died.
Published a week ago to excellent reviews and unprecedented commercial success, it was accompanied by an emotional video directed by Peter Jackson.
