Listening Post — The Beatles “Love”

Saw "Beatles Love" in Vegas about a month into the run from the cheapest nosebleed seats and it was terrific– a bargain at twice the price and distance.  My Beatles-loving parents have already gone back to see it.  And the music has been cleaned up, remastered and remixed in ways that let you hear it as if for the first time.  Here's "Strawberry Fields" done up chronologically from rough acoustic sketch to full-blown psychedelic freakout, with several other Beatles tunes laid over the ending "mashup-style," a trick the album repeats throughout with fascinating results.  I'm listening to it non-stop.  Also below is some video of the show– the picture is way too dark but it gives you a taste.
