Two versions of the song ‘Oh! Darling’ have been released ahead of the massive Anniversary Collection for “Abbey Road.” Below you can hear the new “2019 mix” and “Take 4.” The “2019 mix” is a new remixed version by Giles Martin while “Take 4” featuring a bare-bones version of the track with a “guide vocal” by McCartney.
From the press release for the album: “This is the first time Abbey Road has been remixed and presented with additional session recordings and demos. To create Abbey Road’s new stereo, 5.1 surround, and Dolby Atmos mixes, Giles Martin and Sam Okell worked with an expert team of engineers and audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios. All the new Abbey Road releases feature the new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original eight-track session tapes. To produce the mix, Giles was guided by the album’s original stereo mix supervised by his late-father, George Martin.”
The “Abbey Road” 50th Anniversary Edition will be out on September 27th.
