Comment by Jan Arell - August 27, 2021 (1 of 1)

Generally regarded as the best post-Beatles album made by any ex-Beatle, ATMP has finally gotten the big treatment. A few comments on the box that contains five CD's and one Blu Ray Audio.

Music: Of course it's five stars. If you exclude that last "bonus" third LP with long, boring jams, this is one of the best rock albums ever made.

Surround Sound: The engineers have managed to take away most of that Phil Spector echo. Not all, since some of it was obviously burnt into the original tapes, but it is clearer than ever. I have only listened to the 5.1 24/192 layer a couple of times. Mostly the back channels give you a great ambience, but in a few songs there are instruments and voices there. Overall a definite improvement of earlier releases, including the 2001 remastered one.
4,5 stars. (I wouldn't mind more active backchannels.)
The BR disc also have the original album in stereo, different resolutions including 24/192, and in Dolby Atmos which I don't have the equipment for.

Other discs: 1-2 present the original album in CD quality, probably remastered once again. 3-4 are mainly acoustic demos. 5 is rehearsals with band members in studio, including a few gems.

Presentation: A rather smallish box, some 19 x19 cm. A lot of pictures. The original poster of GH in the dark. A short discussion between son Dhani Harrison and the box's producer. Texts are only basic facts about the recordings (where and when but not who; you have to rely on your own understanding of rock music and musicians to find out when it's Clapton who plays the solo, or whether it's Ringo or Ray Cooper on drums) and some short quotes from people who were involved, including GH.
No lyrics! Maybe you have to buy the super duper exclusive box for that. Then you will also be the proud owner of miniatures of GH's garden midgets.
2 stars
