Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream
It is not dying, it is not dying

We were talking
About the space between us all
And the people
Who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth
Then it's far too late
When they pass away

We were talking
About the love we all could share
When we find it
To try our best to hold it there with our love
With our love, we could save the world
If they only knew

Try to realize it's all within yourself
No one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small
And life flows on within you and without you

Oh... Fudge yeah... and I didn't say "Fudge".
This is better than the original Beatles. I still skipped past this half way through. My very much in the minority opinion. I've learned to appreciate the Beatles more over the years. I actually like a couple of their songs, but I still can't get past the whiny voices.

Still, please play on. The more mixed up the music is, the better. I like the eclectic version of this station even more.

Because Tomorrow Never Knows rises to virtual sacrosanct status IMHO, I personally find this mix to be blasphemous.

 
It was done by Sir George Martin and his son with Paul and Ringo's blessing. That works for me!

Beatles singing.  Beatles playing.  Who else would be listed?  I suppose you could add "DJ WhatsHisFace" to the credits.  But not as a performer, surely.
To me 7 -> 8 - Most Excellent 
Thanks, George. And Bill. 
But to my ears, this mix of one of my 10 or 20 fav tunes of the Fabs is a mixed up mash.

This pretty good mashup of Beatles classics had my hackles up at first.  I wouldn't spin it on my own, but I can say "its 2017" and go with the flow if RP puts it on.  I agree that "Tomorrow Never Knows" belongs at the end of "Revolver".  In context, it signals the end of an era for the Beatles, and arguably for popular music.  But in 2017, what is permanent and sacred?  
Clever segue there Bill...from within You Without You > To Be Where's There Life

Thanks!

Totally disagree. A loving re-imaging of the original musical ideas.  Particularly engaging in surround.

Amazing - the BEST thing in Vegas

 
My wife and I saw the LOVE show in November 2015, and we wholeheartedly agree! It was simply amazing, and the sound was phenomenal.
 I hear you, but it sure is nice to experience this music with the added pleasures associated with todays recording methods.  Kind of like a 1963 Corvette with an upgrade to disc brakes..modernizing something beautiful is not always a bad thing..however I certainly understand your point of view as well. I really can appreciate authenticity.   It is a fine line we walk.  adib wrote:

I'm all up for new ideas, new concepts and change - but a rehash of something which was perfectly placed (and a 10/10 from me) in its own time seems a poor idea to me...   This gets a 7 from me, which is generous, and purely based on the quality of the source material.

You people act like this mashup stuff is so new and creative. It has a long history starting with (who else) The Beatles! They weren't called mashups back then, but what do you think Revolution #9 is?
The songwriting credits on all of the Beatles songs were Lennon/McCartney so if you don't have BOTH of them collaborating to this project, then it's just other people screwing around with their music editing software.
meh.

 
This is not "just other people" man, it's George Martin - who helped the boys with much of their studio magic, and his son.  And this project was kicked off by George Harrison through his friendship with the Cirque de Soleil founder, blessed by John's widow, and fully cooperated with by Paul, Ringo, Olivia & Yoka.

So lighten up on the other people crap.

Oh yeah - and this is the most creative and well down mashup on this record.

Ha. I wasn't cutting the song down. I like the song. I like the Beatles. I like Ice Cream. I like you. Cancer sucks though.

Just noting that the eclectic-ness of this tune wouldn't appeal to as many listeners without 'a little help from it's friends.' :)

I consider myself somewhat of a purist. Generally don't like remixes or covers. I was reluctant to listen to Love when it came out.

But I put on the headphones and gave it a chance after seeing a little documentary about how lovingly it was crafted and who all was involved.

Wow, I was taken by surprise. I decided to listen to it on its own merits —  as I would a new album — and not compare it (as much as can be possible). And it stands on its own admirably.

I really think it's a fabulous record. It really felt like all these songs were fresh and I could adore them anew. (That being said, I have a friend who insists that without headphones one can't truly appreciate the finer nuances of these new mixes, and she may be correct in that.)

Thanks George and Giles Martin. Nicely done.
Tomorrow Never Knows ( who's going to rehash an old Beatles song)
With or Without You ( or someone else making a financial profit on rehashed fab four songs)

Limp

I'm in for 10...


awesome!

Same here.  I'm not a " Vegas show" fan nor a huge Beatles fan but. . . . . the music and the show knocked my socks off.  The cd has been in regular rotation at my house ever since.
Bill, great choices this morning. One after another.

I'm surprised this is rated "only" 7.7. It's probably their most influential cut as far as expanding the musical palate of the day and features some of George's best guitar (IMHO)
I loved this "Love" CD instantly and still do. #10 all around!
The DVD with 5.1 sound gets the most airtime here.


I'm the only person in the world who doesnt like them. I feel so alone.
Yay the show. I've got a demo from a radio programmer who shall remain nameless, and it's dismal. A remix of magic, turning it into muck (which is why said programmer surrendered it to me. He thought it was crap - and he was right.)

Why does anyone feel they can improve on the Beatles? Yes, the mixing was sometimes abyssmal, but it was the best that was available at the time. To take those works and play fast and loose with them to the tune of "Love" is, in my opinion, wrong.  Got this wine-cellar, with a thousand bottles of vintage wine worth a million dollars.  Oh - wait!  Let's break those bottles and try to make something even better!

I've listened to the revamped music of the Beatles, and I steadfastly remain a purist. I have the originals, and as far as I'm concerned, that's all I need.  This other remixed, revamped, re-done stuff is just fluff.
This is really well done. I've never heard of that "Love" performance thingy, but the soundtrack is exceptional. Long-time Beatles fan here, and I'm loving it.

I've been to Vegas before but never had a reason to go back until Love came out.
I thought I would go one last time to Vegas to check it out.
Love was so great I will be going back - maybe every year.

Is that because he's now mostly deaf? Sorry, bad joke. I heard a great interview with Sir George on NPR, what a humble and selfless man! Amazing accident of fate that all of the differently talented people responsible for the Beatles came together for even one meeting, and a miracle that they were able to collaborate despite egos and make such high art. Not sure how I feel about these mashups, but glad it's staying in the public ear.

A friend just laid a copy of this on me as a house warming gift, and I have to say that—even for a Beatles purist such as me—that this belongs in every serious fan's collection. I do regret, however, that they just didn't put the CdS show on a DVD and include it with the set, for it's unlikely I'll ever be going to Las Vegas for any reason.



profound mix...  live it and love it...

Sir George is one of my heroes. I have wondered what he felt about all this.

Not being a "hard core" Beatles fan, my first thought was "I didn't know they did this".   Speaks to the quality of the remix that my first thought wasn't "that's not the Beatles".

that Britney/OJays mash-up was awesome. Can't imagine that Bill would ever play it but it's worth tracking down.

Reserving judgment on this for now.

Let's say different, not better. Old and new versions both have their place. I find it energizing to hear Beatles songs in a new format. It's still the Beatles ... and had the blessing of the survivors and families.



This is a really really cool mix...




This is soooo good for the ears...

This is wonderful...


Two of my Beatles favorites.

This mix I think even further brings out the fact that these songs weren't just a few years ahead of their time... but 30 years ahead of their time. 

Great stuff... 


Yeah, this is always cool to hear...




Love it...


Sorry haters, but I love this album. Yes, the Beatles are gods...yes their music is amazing...but this was done with George Martin's input and the survivor's OK...I find it a wonderful piece of music. I think of it as a musical "Where's Waldo?" in which you hear these snippets together and try to figure out which songs they came from. And...the sound is amazing. Love it.

Why not? Having a remix (or actually a "Mashup" correctly described in the other post) does not keep you from listening to the original if you want. GEESH. If you saw the show in person, you might feel differently. It is fantastic!! I have gone back to see it twice. And I was in 5th grade when the Beatles first appeared on Ed Sullivan so I grew up with these guys as my musical backdrop. I love getting something new made form the old awesome stuff.

Not as good as the originals but I don't mind hearing this remix once in a while. Pretty good to these ears.

Give me the originals. This George Martin and Co. f----ing around in the studio. Big deal.

Maybe sugarbaby had a bad LSD experience and this song is providing a bad flashback. Or maybe they just don't get it. Part of the experience as I remember it (of what I can remember).
Something is bothersome about this whole thing with The Beatles and Cirque du Soleil. This mix is interesting though.
