Overview

The Beatles made music within a virtuous circle, together reaching heights that none of them could alone. Then, in a flash, that circle collapsed, and the solo years which followed were patchy, indeed.

But a secret has been hiding in plain sight ever since: John, Paul, George and Ringo still could have elevated each other from afar by recording separately and releasing together. Amazingly, even after all these years, we can reanimate their famous chemistry and catch a glimpse of what they might have released in the 70s.

Sure, every Beatles fan has made a playlist of favorite solo tracks, but THAT is not THIS. The trick is to combine the right music – which isn't necessarily the most familiar – then sequence it the way George Martin might have. The result is seven thrilling “new” Beatles albums that you simply must hear to believe.
