This album (soundtrack) is a great buy for all Beatles fans. Even though one needs to be very familiar with Beatles music to fully enjoy this but even an unexperienced music fan will be completely immersed into this fantastic ocean of music created by the best group of all times and mixed by the immortal fifth Beatle George Martin.

I bought this as a gift for my husband and while I have only heard it once myself, he has done nothing but rave about it. He is a major Beatles fan and he likes how the songs were put together and flow into each other. Any Beatles fan should buy this album. Read More

Given his unparalleled talent for innovative recording, mixing, and soundscaping, producer Sir George Martin has always been rightly referred to as "the fifth Beatle." Some 35 years after the Beatles disbanded, Martin was still shaping the group's music, as demonstrated by the 2006 release LOVE. The album (created to coincide with a Cirque du Soleil performance based on Beatles songs) amounts to a musical fantasia centered on the Beatles' output, with famous work from both early and late in the band's career collaged with great care and artistry.
Martin's relationship to the band gives him a unique perspective (not to mention access to a vast catalogue of multi-track tapes), which results in a shape-shifting overview that encompasses demo recordings, instrumental passages, and snippets from some of the best-loved Beatles tunes. Beatles fanatics will be in seventh heaven playing "name that reference" on this sonic carpet ride, but LOVE also provides something of an "overture" to the Beatles' oeuvre. The SPECIAL EDITION comes with a bonus audio-only DVD featuring the album in various stereo mixes.

Artist Bio
No other band has had quite the same impact as the four lads from Liverpool. Over the course of eight years and more than a dozen albums, The Beatles changed popular music and culture forever, spearheading the 1960s British Invasion and shaping rock & roll along the way. Along with their amazing musical output and unprecedented worldwide celebrity, John, Paul, George, and Ringo were responsible for many pop music revolutions, major and minor--writing their own material, pushing the limits of the studio, making films of their music, printing song lyrics on albums--that today are taken for granted. Although The Beatles disbanded in 1970, their artistic legacy is permanently ingrained in the entire world's musical vocabulary.
