Notes

The English rock band The Beatles existed from 1962 to 1970 and has recorded 12 studio albums.

Revolver is the seventh studio album by the English rock band The Beatles. Released on 5 August 1966, it was the Beatles' final recording project before their retirement as live performers, and marked a progression on their 1965 release Rubber Soul in terms of the group's readiness to experiment in the recording studio. The album's diverse sounds include tape loops and backwards recordings on the psychedelic "Tomorrow Never Knows", a classical string octet on "Eleanor Rigby", and Indian-music backing on "Love You To". The album was reduced to eleven songs by Capitol Records in North America, where three of its tracks instead appeared on the June 1966 release Yesterday and Today.

The Beatles recorded the album following a three-month break from professional commitments at the start of 1966, and during a period when London was feted as the era's cultural capital. The songs reflect the influence of psychedelic drugs such as LSD and the increasing sophistication of the Beatles' lyrics to address themes including death and transcendence from material concerns. With no thoughts of reproducing their new material in concert, the band made liberal use of studio techniques such as varispeeding, reversed tapes, close audio miking and automatic double tracking (ADT), in addition to employing musical instrumentation outside of their standard live set-up. Some of the changes in studio practice introduced by Revolver, particularly ADT, were soon adopted throughout the recording industry. The sessions also produced a non-album single, "Paperback Writer" backed with "Rain", for which the Beatles filmed their first on-location promotional films.

In the UK, Revolver's fourteen tracks were released to radio stations throughout July 1966, with the music signifying what author Ian MacDonald later described as "a second pop revolution – one which while galvanising their existing rivals and inspiring many new ones, left all of them far behind". In the US, it was the last Beatles album to be subjected to Capitol's policy of altering the band's intended running order and content. The release there coincided with the Beatles' final concert tour, which was marred by the controversy surrounding John Lennon's remark that the band had become "more popular than Jesus". The record topped the UK Albums Chart for seven weeks and America's Billboard Top LPs list for six weeks. Together with the children's novelty song "Yellow Submarine", "Eleanor Rigby" became an international hit when issued as a double A-side single.

Revolver's cover artwork, designed by Klaus Voormann, won the 1967 Grammy Award for Best Album Cover, Graphic Arts. The album was influential in advancing principles espoused by the 1960s counterculture and in inspiring the development of pop music into subgenres such as psychedelic rock, electronica, progressive rock and world music. With the restoration of the three omitted tracks for its international CD release in 1987, many music critics recognise Revolver as the Beatles' best album, surpassing Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album was ranked first in Colin Larkin's book All-Time Top 1000 Albums and third in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In 2013, after the British Phonographic Industry had changed its sales award rules, Revolver was certified platinum in the UK. The album has been certified 5× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

      A very high-quality pressing of a great album presented in a new way. This may be the best version of this album available new on vinyl.

          I listed my mono revolvers today. Your pages display XEX 606 2 as a matrix. But the labels are swapped. Side 1 plays side 2 and vice versa.

            Regret buying this box for 185 euro when it came out. Not for the music or quality but it looks like it was very steep compared to recent prices.

              Sounds good enough to me- but the reprinted cover the track titles are comparatively smaller and harder to read. Thought it was my aging eyes!

                Stellar!!! Maybe the Beatles' best, and it sounds pretty amazing. The 2022 mono is also great, but I am used to listen to a 1990's/ early 2000's CD version in stereo, so this is the one I put on the list. But no matter which version you own, it's an amazing record which took modern music so much forward. 11.9 out of 5 stars...

                Please consider it is the 1966 tape pressed on vinyl. Stereo heads might also like the 2022 stereo cut of the great Revolver Super Deluxe Edition.

                  Very cool set. The astonishing aspect: the Gilles Martin mixes still let you hear the albums as you knew them (different to the remixed Rory Gallagher albums re-released in the 1990's that were completely different to the originals). Well done, just better than the 1966 stereo with its clear division of left and right channels. And even though the 2012 stereo is my personal favourite (a 24bit/ 48 kHz file pressed on vinyl with surprisingly good results), this as a creative whole might be the best way to experience "Revolver", an album that clearly contains one negative aspect: it's way too short. So this box set is making me very happy, as it shows the Beatles on top of the game.
                  Session outtakes usually bore me to death, I give them a listen once and never again, but on this release the outtakes and working tape recordings are all top notch and very, very entertaining.
                  I know you folks don't like GZ media. I had the one or two that were not the best ever presses I own, but most of the time they do a good job, and I feel they're working hard to quiet negative discussion. With this release they really show their ability not only with the vinyl included but with anything else that is contained in this box. And the box itself is beautiful, too. The book is a dream.

                  I do not buy such expensive stuff too often, but I bet the Stones would deliver a cheap booklet and, in best case, a gatefold cover for that price. It is worth the investion.

                  You'll love it if you don't own one yet...

                  Edit: the 7" is a beautiful addition. But the mono album cut... being born and raised on stereo recordings, loving their fidelity and possibilities, this mono album cut is extra-terrestrial, overwhelming beauty all the way. I am a true believer in atheism, but this record could be able to convince me of divinity, and again: reading records had be returned three times (without satisfying results) makes me wonder. I had my "Goats Head Soup " experience with GZ media, the record not being a 187% perfect, but 99.5 percent of my GZ media experience has been extremly satisfying, this set of records being a good example of their ability to deliver greatness. I feel that the one little noise that appears on almost any vinyl will be highly exaggerated by some people who won't praise pure quality made by people east/ west/ north & south of their hemisphere. GZ did everything right with this one, proper works for which I cannot praise them highly enough.
                  To me it is the best Pop/ Rock box set ever released, the "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" box, even though a good value-for-money, falls a bit behind. And no, the mono cut does not sound digital (how could it?). It is PERFECT, I do not say this too often.

                  Beatles, you are ace. Abbey Road, same... Lacquer cutters, you are ace, GZ media, you've made this one a dream come true with book and box and anything else, especially a superb pressing.

                    To be honest I love this album I really like this reissue it was the first album I had bought my only complaint is that side 2 sounds a bit blurry I don't know if it's because I had it a long time ago or it came out more or less

                      This whole set is awesome, maybe some don't like the new stereo mix, and I don't really prefer it to the original but it's super interesting to hear. Along with a hardcover book, outtakes, and a AAA mono LP. Pick this up when you can.

                      MONO LP REVIEW:

                      I think this is definitely the best I've heard Revolver in mono. Compared to a Danish pressing with UK metalwork and the 2014 this is the best of both worlds. The UK mastering is very engaging and in your face, while the 2014 is detailed, laid back and kinda soft in comparison. This pressing is super engaging, has perfect bass, and is incredibly detailed. The only drawback I can see is that it has the most sibilance out of the pressings. Even then though it isn't very much in my opinion, but is noticeable when compared to the others. Especially on tracks like She Said She Said, which still sounds awesome here but the sibilance when John says "She said, you don't understand what I've said' was VERY noticeable. Overall it's still excellent, not perfect but very close.

                        I keep seeing a 2012 with a slightly different label. Instead of the number pictured in this listing, it says “824171” in the label right below the right side of “parlaphone”. Any info on this version? Everything else about it looks like the 2012 release
