A beautiful copy of a terrific record and one of the hardest titles to find in the red vinyl mono series.
Background: In the 1960s, most Japanese LPs were issued in stereo only, so most Japanese buyers never had the opportunity to hear the original mono mixes of most of the Beatles songs.
In 1982, EMI records released limited edition red vinyl pressings in mono of all of the Beatles albums from Please Please Me through Yellow Submarine. This series was reissued in 1986 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s 1966 visit to Japan.
Revolver, released in August, 1966, was the seventh studio album by the Beatles. The album reached #1 in the U.S. and UK and has never gone out of print.
All the rules fell by the wayside with Revolver, as the Beatles began exploring new sonic territory, lyrical subjects, and styles of composition. … The biggest miracle of Revolver may be that the Beatles covered so much new stylistic ground and executed it perfectly on one record, or it may be that all of it holds together perfectly. Either way, its daring sonic adventures and consistently stunning songcraft set the standard for what pop/rock could achieve. Even after Sgt. Pepper, Revolver stands as the ultimate modern pop album and it’s still as emulated as it was upon its original release.
