Love: The Beatles Album

Love is a soundtrack of remixed recordings by the Beatles and was released on November 20, 2006. The CD was produced and re-mixed by George Martin and his son Giles for a Cirque de Soleil show after the producers obtained permission from McCartney, Starr, Olivia Harrison, and Yoko Ono. The album was well received by both critics and fans, while the surviving Beatles (and widows of Harrison and Ono) felt that the music was vibrant and re-united the Beatles in a dynamic, unexpected way. Ringo said he heard things on the remix that he'd never noticed before.

Using the original two-, four-, and eight-track recording tapes, George and Giles Martin created a new, common digital framework for all of the songs, which were spliced together in clever and innovative ways. Sometimes a single guitar chord, phrase, or verse is used from a song, while other songs receive lengthier treatments. This landmark way of fusing the Beatles creativity won a Grammy in 2008.

The track listing is as follows:
