BIG BEATLES NEWS DAY
It appears there is big Beatles news.
First off, George Harrison will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame a week from today April 14. On the heels of that is supposedly an announcement sometime this month by Capitol/EMI concerning a new release of some sort by Harrison. Is it another remaster(s)? A career-spanning best-of? Some fans believe it'll be something from his Apple days. More on that in the coming days.
And after years of rumors and fans holding their collective breath, the entire Beatles catalog has been remastered and will finally be released on September 9. The grossly overdue sonic upgrade has apparently been at least 4 years in the making. The link has a brief slide of what Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road will look like.
The New York Times goes a little more in-depth as well.
What won't be included is The Beatles Anthology material as well as some of the projects that followed such as the Yellow Submarine Songtrack and the Beatles 1 collection.
