Does anyone know if a Mono Vinyl Boxset is being planned?

I considered getting the Mono CD's but since they are like mini LP's, I thought why not get a proper LP.

I have heard that rumor too. It's bond to happen some time though because of the high demand for it.

I've honestly lost hope in this happening, but I'll be looking out for it, if it does get released a-hard-days-night-john-3. But I think it will be a while before it does get a release, because of the recent US Albums box set.

There was an article in Variety at the end of 2013 with a quote from Jeff Jones at Apple that this was definitely going to be released this year...I'll try to find the link so I can post it here

Apple confirm mono vinyl to be released on the 9th September 2014 reports Examiner and Wogblog.

Apple press release

THE BEATLES’ ORIGINAL MONO STUDIO ALBUMS REMASTERED AT Abbey Road DIRECTLY FROM THE ANALOGUE MASTERS FOR VINYL RELEASE

180-Gram LPs Available September 8, Individually and in a Limited 14-LP Boxed Edition with Hardbound Book 

London – June 12, 2014 – The Beatles in mono:  This is how most listeners first heard the group in the 1960s, when mono was the predominant audio format.  Up until 1968, each Beatles album was given a unique mono and stereo mix, but the group always regarded the mono as primary.  On September 8 (September 9 in North America), The Beatles’ nine U.K. albums, the American-compiled Magical Mystery Tour, and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks will be released in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork.  Newly mastered from the analogue master tapes, each album will be available both individually and within a lavish, limited 14-LP boxed edition, The Beatles In Mono, which also includes a 108-page hardbound book. 

In an audiophile-minded undertaking, The Beatles’ acclaimed mono albums have been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios by GRAMMY®-winning engineer Sean Magee and GRAMMY®-winning mastering supervisor Steve Berkowitz.  While The Beatles In Mono CD boxed set released in 2009 was created from digital remasters, for this new vinyl project, Magee and Berkowitz cut the records without using any digital technology.  Instead, they employed the same procedures used in the 1960s, guided by the original albums and by detailed transfer notes made by the original cutting engineers.  

Working in the same room at Abbey Road where most of The Beatles’ albums were initially cut, the pair first dedicated weeks to concentrated listening, fastidiously comparing the master tapes with first pressings of the mono records made in the 1960s.  Using a rigorously tested Studer A80 machine to play back the precious tapes, the new vinyl was cut on a 1980s-era VMS80 lathe.  

Manufactured for the world at Optimal Media in Germany, The Beatles’ albums are presented in their original glory, both sonically and in their packaging. The boxed collection’s exclusive 12-inch by 12-inch hardbound book features new essays and a detailed history of the mastering process by award-winning radio producer and author Kevin Howlett.  The book is illustrated with many rare studio photos of The Beatles, fascinating archive documents, and articles and advertisements sourced from 1960s publications.

The Beatles In Mono:  Available individually and collected in a limited 14-LP boxed edition, accompanied by an exclusive 108-page hardbound book.

If anyone else is thinking of ordering this from Amazon.com, please use this link to help support this site. It costs you nothing, but the site will get a small kickback.

http://amzn.com/B005NJ9CHK/?ta.....eabib06-20

For those outside the US, this link should take you to your country's Amazon store: http://georiot.co/monobox

The box set isn't listed on the UK site yet. Hopefully soon.

I almost definitely won't be getting this because the stereo mixes only bother me on headphones. Also, while I have a record player, I barely use it. I have the music downloaded. I might get the CDs, but definitely not this.

While I agree with you, it is interesting that this mono LP set is not using the digital mixes like the 2012 stereo LP release!  

 

almost definitely ?????  Ha-ha

Strangely enough what people are payin' for the 2012 stereo LP set and this 2014 mono LP set, you could just buy the Original UK LPs on Ebay, Discogs, Amazon Uk and other sources.  Why not have the real Mccoy as the Beatles originally released them instead of these Apple cash cows????

Of course if your an analog turntable junky, you just can't beat 180 grams of pure Virgin Vinyl!!!!

I think it's cool that they're numbering the White Album's!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.
