The Beatles 1 to be remixed, reissued with restored promo videos

The mulitplatinum compilation The Beatles 1 will be reissued multiple configurations featuring remixed audio and restored promotional videos on Bluray and DVD on November 6, 2015.

The Beatles pioneered the practive of releasing videos with their singles. Many of the promotional videos will be commercially available for the first time ever. According to the press release, "An 18-person team of film and video technicians and restoration artists was assembled by Apple Corps to undertake painstaking frame-by-frame cleaning, color-grading, digital enhancement and new edits that took months of dedicated, ’round-the-clock work to accomplish."

The reissue will be available in several configurations: single-disc CD, DVD, and Blu-ray versions; CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray combo packs; and a two-LP vinyl edition. The Beatles 1+ will be a deluxe package that includes a bonus DVD or Blu-ray featuring alternate versions of several of the videos. From the press release: "Beatles 1 and Beatles 1+ offers the restored films, including 35mm negatives scanned in 4K and digitally restored with new stereo and 5.1 surround audio remixes, produced from the original analogue tapes by the GRAMMY® winning team of Giles Martin with Sam Okell at Abbey Road Studios. For four of the videos, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have provided exclusive audio commentary and filmed introductions, respectively. The 1+ Deluxe Edition, presented in an expanded 124-page illustrated hardcover book includes ‘an appreciation’ of The Beatles’ ground-breaking films and videos by music journalist and author Mark Ellen and extensive, detailed track/video annotation by music historian and author Richard Havers."

It is important to note that this released features newly remixed audio, and is different from the canon 2009 masters used on reissues released since then.
