Since the “Love” project, there’s been requests to remix Beatles stuff and I’ve always said, no, why? Why would you want to do it? The records sound great. Then when we did the Beatles “1” record, people asked, “Are you going to remix the songs?” and I said, “No,” but then I was told I needed to prepare mixes in 5.1, so I had to remix it. I didn’t want to do some faux and crappy 5.1 mixes. In the pathways of the 5.1’s we remixed the stereos, because that’s what you do, and people liked it. I didn’t think they were gonna release a CD of it; that wasn’t part of the plan. Fans, the people who really care about this stuff, really liked it, and that gave me confidence when working on the “Sgt. Pepper” project [in 2017]
