Editor’s Note: Brett Milano originally submitted this for one of his “This Week in Music” columns, but the CD’s release date was bumped . . . and bumped . . . and bumped.

Sure, it’s great when one musician can collaborate with another in a faraway country and end up with something impressive — even when the two never spend any time together in a studio. The wonders of the digital age have made it easy to carry on long-distance recording relationships.

The Holy Vinyl Grail, Part 1 officially arrived in stores November 13. I was blessed to get the Beatles’ original studio album remasters stereo vinyl box delivered to me a full month early, and I still feel that I haven’t spent enough time with the 14 albums contained therein.
