Love (rendered as LOVE on all cover artwork) is a soundtrack compilation album release by The Beatles for the Cirque du Soleil show of the same name. The album was released in November 2006 and features music compiled and remixed for the show. Producer Giles Martin commented that “What people will be hearing on the album is a new experience, a way of re-living the whole Beatles musical lifespan in a very condensed period.”

George Martin and his son Giles began work on Love after getting permission from Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, and Olivia Harrison (the latter two representing John Lennon and George Harrison, respectively). They worked from the original master tapes from the Abbey Road studios to produce a medley of Beatles music by remixing favorite songs, such as Harrison’s Within You, Without You being played to the drum-track of Tomorrow Never Knows (Album description via Wikipedia).

    I was lucky enough to see LOVE in Las Vegas and it blew me away. Especially the scene with the bed on the sea – the whole scene completely overtook my senses.
