Beatles – Love 2LP

I just realized: if my calculations are correct, 2 days ago (this past Thursday) was my 300th day in quarantine here in the house. This. Is. SPARTA!

Also, this post finally (finally!) sees me at the end of this long Beatles run. This was a true endurance test for me, because I’m not the world’s biggest Beatles fan and, for a guy who’s not that into the band, I seem to own a hell of a lot of it.


The Beatles – Love

I own this 2006 2LP set and I don’t know why. I mean, I saw it cheap and thought what the hell, but I never listen to it. 

It’s a bunch of remixes of Beatles songs as a soundtrack for a Cirque De Soleil (CDS) show. Done by George Martin and his son, it was meant to reimagine the songs we all know, and that it does. It was also the last album Martin produced before his 2016 death.

It was George Harrison who had the idea to use Beatles songs with the CDS, and all parties and estates signed off on this project. So, Martin put together over 100 clips of songs (more than they actually used), and then all the stretchy people of CDS put together a show.

There were two digital bonus tracks (The Fool On The Hill, and Girl), to drive somebody like Mike nuts lol.

 You can get background and release details here. And the track list is here.

  1. Never had any interest in this. CDS is the type of entertainment that I can appreciate for about two minutes.


    • Yeah exactly. Man, I’m not much of a fan of the band and even I have enough of the collector’s brain that makes me buy something like this and then never play it. How it survived the last two culls, I’ll never know.

  2. 300:days. That is so hard to believe. But sadly true as I’m approaching mine as well in a few weeks


  3. Well done on both endurance challenges – the quarantine and the beatle immersion!
