40-Plus High-End Retailers to Celebrate New Abbey Road Mix

On Friday, September 27, Apple Corps, Ltd./Capitol/UMe will release, in various analog and digital formats, a remixed and remastered version of the Beatles' Abbey Road, commissioned in honor of that album's 50th anniversary. And on Saturday, September 28, between 3:00pm and 6:00pm—local times—over 40 perfectionist-audio retailers across the US and Canada, coast to coast, will mark the event by playing all 17 of the album's tracks, presumably on the finest imaginable playback systems. (It is a not-unreasonable expectation that at least some of these many playback sessions will take place at the same time, thus stimulating a great harmonic convergence. Or something.)

The event was conceived and organized by California-based audio distributor On a Higher Note and an organization called MOR Music, and is intended to tempt music fans who love the Beatles, but who haven't yet succumbed to perfectionist audio's charms, to visit their nearest hi-fi dealer, hear their beloved music transformed, and dedicate the rest of their lives to the pursuit of high-quality playback. (We were kidding about the harmonic convergence thing.) Readers who wish to know about participating dealers in their area are encouraged to visit Mormusic.today/location.
