Beatles archive producer Giles Martin confirmed that both Revolver and Rubber Soul reissues are being considered. Martin, who is the son of the group's late-producer George Martin, has been behind the boards for the recent remixes and box sets for the band's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the “White Album,” Abbey Road, and newly released Let It Be collections.
While chatting with Variety, Giles was asked if the “Fab Four's” pre-1967 catalogue will get the detailed and specialized treatment that the later works have — specifically, 1966's Revolver: “I think we have to do it, and I’ve said this before. . . If you take something like 'Taxman' from Revolver (a track often cited for its bizarre stereo separation), 'Taxman' is guitar, bass and drums on one track, and vocals and a sort of shaking and guitar solo (on the right). And it sounds good; they’re amazing recordings, and amazing mixes. Y'know, we have to look into what technology we can do to make things de-mixed and all this kind of stuff, which I’m looking into.”
He added, “I’m looking for the technology to do it with, to do something really innovative with Rubber Soul and Revolver, as opposed to just a remastering job, because it’s been remastered already. So I think we will. I think we also will look at outtakes as well.”
