‘White Al­bum’ clues dis­sected in remix

The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

NEW YORK — Hard­core fans of the Bea­tles like to pore over ev­ery de­tail of the band and end­lessly dis­sect the group’s songs. Then there’s Giles Martin, who man­ages to time travel to meet the Fab Four.

Martin is the son of leg­endary Bea­tles pro­ducer George Martin, and lately he’s been re­turn­ing to the trea­sure trove of orig­i­nal record­ing ses­sions to remix key al­bums by John, Paul, George and Ringo.

This year Martin has an ex­haus­tive look at “The Bea­tles,” bet­ter known as the “White Al­bum,” which con­tains clas­sics such as “Back in the U.S.S.R.,” “Black­bird” and “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.”

The ac­cepted wis­dom is that it was a rocky time for the band, which was dis­in­te­grat­ing. But Martin dis­agrees. He says he hears the Fab Four work­ing to­gether with­out fric­tion.
