The Beatles: Love (Apple/Capitol). "The first Beatles album in 5.1"? Well, that's a bit misleading. Love isn't one of the Beatles' original releases; it's the "cast album" to the Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas, which does use the band's master tapes not only for full songs but also for new segues and mashups.

From great suffering comes great art. So they say.

Need more proof? Just spin the self-titled set from the Civil Wars. It’s the follow-up to their acclaimed 2011 debut, Barton Hollow. There will be no follow-up to this album, however. As The New York Times has reported, Joy Williams and John Paul White aren’t talking to each other.

"I hear the Man a-comin' / He's rolling 'round the bend - on 104 tracks!" Or so you'll sing in praise of the Man in Black's big boxed set, The Legend (Columbia/Legacy). His name, of course, is Johnny Cash, and the box serves up four CDs of songs that include seven previously unreleased performances.

In your new book with Howard Massey, Here, There and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles (Gotham), you write that "true Beatles fans" should get the mono versions of Revolver and Sgt.

Basking in surround mixes for my Elton John review last month, I got fired up by the London 2002 version of "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" from the Dream Ticket DVD-Video.
