Beatles fans are excited about the release Tuesday of “Studio One,” an entire album of previously unreleased Beatles material discovered in a box at Abbey Road Studios labeled “The Walrus is Ringo,” along with a caricature of Ringo Starr sporting walrus tusks and angel wings.
The album is thought to have been recorded in Abbey Road’s famed Studio One between the sessions that produced 1967’s “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and 1968’s “The Beatles.”
Representatives of Apple Records have been mum about the music other than to say it anticipates EDM (electronic dance music) in many ways. Rumor has it that the album was made using only a Moog modular synthesizer other than the bass parts, which Paul McCartney insisted upon recording.
