    "Smiles awake you when you rise."

    What the heck does that mean anyway?

    "Smiles AWAIT you when you rise" would have made so much more sense.

    The words to Golden Slumbers are from a poem written by Thomas Dekker in 1603. Blame him.

    I agree on "Come & Get It"

    I would however call "You Never Give Me Your Money" a classic and AFAIK it was written in 1969

    NumberEight Came too late and stayed too long

    I don’t remember anticipating Abbey Road back in September 1969.

    It just appeared.

    Maybe slightly more, but it's up there on the remix. It's an exciting mix. He went for it.

    Bickering, trolling, bullying, and completely off topic.

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    We'll re-open in a few days.

    Let's try this again, shall we?

    Please, for everyone's sake, stay ON TOPIC

    Let's be constructive.

    I've always heard "Smiles awake you.." It works. It's poetic.

    Parallel to "sunlight awakes you.." or "music awakes you..."

    Wake up to smiles...

    "It's the Beatles' bloody Abbey Road, it sold, shut up!" :laugh:

    Edit: on topic and hopefully not considered trolling or bullying... :tsk:

    so... no Giles Martin & Sam Okell video??
    really disappointing.

    Seems like the hype for this reissue has been really lackluster compared
    to previous years.

    Any new releases from Abbey this week? I’d think something by John...

    Glad this thread is open again but frustratingly nothing at all has happened promotion-wise since it was closed!

    Exactly how I remember it. The local "hip" AM station started playing all these new songs one week (FM wasn't really happening here yet); I still remember thinking about it after the LP appeared and the only things I hadn't heard on that station were "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" and the Her Majesty tag. By the end of the week, there it was in the neighborhood record store.

    True of that time. Occasionally there were mentions in teen magazines or blurbs in music trade magazines, but at the rate that really great music was coming out, there was little time or need for "anticipation."

    lobo Music has always been a matter of Energy to me...

    The Oh Darling remix did not do much for me. More clarity and separation of instruments but not any better than the original mix. There is a strange sounding drum roll around 2:20 where apparently Giles used ADT to create stereo drum that stuck out like a sore thumb the first time I listened to the remix. Otherwise, more bass and background vocals as was to be expected from a Giles Martin Beatles remix. But as I said before his remix style is just not my cup of coffee.

    Yes, how to push your buttons.

    Okay, back on topic. What's the first thing you're most likely to check out? Surround? Remix? Sessions?

    I know it sounds so counter-intuitive to rush to the first version we're all so familiar with to detect obvious changes, but that's probably where I'm going, to spot-check. Of course I got it for the surround, but mainly for it being in the same series as White and Pepper's...and hopefully, hearing no need to ever want another update again in my life!

    I honestly don't intend on being alive long enough for an ATMOS mix of anything on my short-list...what we're liable to get in the meantime is scores of Prague quartets doing Vivaldi, and every Patricia Barber album remixed, for some reason.
    Oh - also Dr. Checky's Hoop-do-doo Helicopter Dropping Things All Over Your Living Room.

    I think that, despite what all of us believe here, Apple doesn't care about Abbey Road 50 promotion simply because... the album is one of the most famous and bestselling ones in history. so it promotes itself and will sell by itself :cool:
