Bob Dylan Tried to Collaborate on an Album with The Beatles and Rolling Stones
An upcoming memior by producer Glyn Johns (who worked with The Beatles on Let It Be and Abbey Road) contains an incredible revelation: Bob Dylan approached Johns sometime around 1969 to ask him to gauge interest from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones (with whom Johns had also done work for) on an album collaboration among the three acts.
The Beatles have announced the upcoming release of the long-awaited The Beatles In Mono vinyl box set due in September of this year (September 9 in North America, September 8 in the rest of the world). The box consists of 14 LPs and an exclusive 12” x 12” 108-page hardbound book with new essays and a detailed history of the mastering process by Beatles radio producer and author Kevin Howlett. Apple says the book is illustrated with rare studio photos of The Beatles, archive documents and articles and advertisements sourced from 1960s publications. All LPs are pressed on 180-gram vinyl. Each album will also be available individually.
Coming on the heels of the The U.S. Albums box set, the Beatles will be releasing a five-disc CD box set of their original Japanese albums to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their arrival in Japan. It will be the first time these albums will be available on CD. As of now the albums will not be available individually or in digital or vinyl format.
The new discs will all be sourced from the now-standard 2009 remasters, although Help! may include some unique stereo mixes. The new set also comes with a 100-page booklet and assorted memorabilia re-creations.
