Little Steven defends listing Beatles on Coolest Garage Rock list
[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 01/18/10 2:34 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

Steven Van Zandt recently counted down what he believes to be the coolest garage rock songs and albums of the decade on his Undergound Garage radio show. His coolest album of the last ten year's is 2009's stereo-free re-release of the Beatles back catalog. Is he being old-school-for-old-school's sake? "No!" says the guitarist, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"My last five conversations with Neil Aspinall, who we all love and miss, had to do with, ?Please, Neil, I know you''re busy, but re-release the Beatles in the original configurations, in mono, the way God intended.' He was finally getting that done when he died and Jeff Jones, the new guy over there at Apple, thankfully got it done."


"People don't realize they'd spend all day on the mono mixes, and then usually George Martin would leave, and occasionally the first engineer would leave, and then the second engineer would throw up a quick stereo mix. They considered stereo a gimmick. Nobody took it seriously up until the last two albums or so. The mono mixes sound better, without question. They're quite different. there's overdubs missing, there's instruments missing. And that's all that was available all these years. This was the way George Martin and the Beatles intended them to be heard!"
