By now, most everybody’s read the glowing reviews of the Cirque de Soleil show in Vegas featuring the Beatles music. But what some folks may not realize is that the Beatles music in the show has been massaged by Beatles producer George Martin and his son Giles into a continous soundscape, with additional instrumentation and vocals taken from their vast bank of multi-track tapes used to augment the original songs. So, if you can imagine "Strawberry Fields Forever" beginning with John’s original demo of the song before going into an early take and climaxing in a musical collage including the piano solo from "In My Life" and the harpsichord pattern from "Piggies," that’s what’s in store for you here. 26 songs and 78 minutes of music, presented with a 28-page booklet authored by George and Giles (the Deluxe Edition also includes an audio-only DVD featuring the entire program in 5.1 Surround Sound plus three extra minutes of music). And Beatles collectors—get ready to spend a day in the life trying to spot where all the pieces come from!
