Mix Celebrating The Beatles Revolver's 40th

The Beatles' RevolverIt's been 40 years since the release of The Beatles' Revolver, a most fantastic collection of work by the Fab Four, producer George Martin and engineer Geoff Emerick that changed so much in music and the recording process.

Recently I was asked by producer Paul Ingles to help prepare material for a tribute to the album, Everything Was Right: The Beatles' Revolver which would air on Public Radio International. Consequently, I ended up with an assortment of extractions and loops from the record which wanted to be assembled in some fashion. Mix, remix, mashup - call it what you like - Everything Was Right is the result.

We're very gratified indeed to have received this first response within an hour of posting the mp3:
Hey Douglas,

Just stumbled across your blog and wanted to tell you that I loved your loop tribute to Revolver, "Everything Was Right." It's great to hear someone doing something creative with such classic music. Keep up the good work!

Best regards,

It was a delightful synchronicity, since I had just started reading Geoff and Howard's book! In fact, it was while I was reading it that I became inspired, and this is what happened... Thank you, Howard... and Geoff.
