Mastering Love - Beatles Style!
What happens when you combine the very entertaining Cirque du Soleil and one of the most acclaimed bands of all time, the Beatles? Simply put - You get LOVE!
LOVE is the name of Cirque Du Soleils new musical celebration as well as the name of the Beatles new album that is a remix of some of their classics mastered by not one but two very well known producers. This all came about due to a close personal friendship between the late George Harrison of the Beatles, and Guy Laliberte, founder of Cirque du Soleil.
The really interesting story however is about the father and son team who produced the new album. This is no ordinary duo. It is no other than the legendary George Martin, the Beatles original producer, and his son Giles. They were fortunate enough to be allowed access to the Beatles master tapes from Abbey Road Studios. What they did with those well preserved tapes is quite impressive. I listened to a few tracks on Cirque Du Soleil's website and loved what I heard.
