@Bongo There was the 30th anniversary CD limited edition, which was a total replica - down to being numbered and top loading, with all inserts. So, not just the original vinyl that was numbered.

Really? I was not aware of these being individually numbered Ron?  They must be worth a few bucks???  And no I'm not going to buy one! apple01

So is the fact that it's not being digitally processed in any way the reason it costs so much? Because I didn't understand why the mono set is going to cost me more than than the stereo set did considering it has less content. I'm about 90% the 2012 stereo set only cost $250 when it came out.

 

P. S. Does anyone know of any plans to make the US albums vinyl set after this? Also, something I wasn't aware was coming out was the Japanese CD set. Will they be making the Japanese vinyl set after that?? Will this just keep going and going???

[SNIP!]
I just read this article, which you (and others) might enjoy: 
"I bet that I can buy the original Beatles records on vinyl for less than the cost of the new stereo box set on Amazon."

[SNIP!]

That all depends on cost and record quality but there may well be some truth to this article.

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.

Joe, regarding that article, I just spent 2 months doing just that.  Between Ebay, Discogs & Amazon U.K., I completed the whole original UK set.  All in VG, - VG+ condition.  

 Now of course they were not all first press releases, but they were all flip back covers with Yellow Parlophone mono LPS, and the Apple: White, Yellow Sub, Let it Be & Abbey Road stereo LPs.  All Originals.  And it came out to a little over $800 Canadian. Of course I could have spent a whole lot more if I wanted to......

When those 2012 LPs came out they were $400 + tax in Canada, and the same with the new mono set coming out, will be $400 + tax.

So it can be done.  It can be done for cheaper for crappier copies, and it can be done for a whole lot more $$$ for near mint copies, but I'm sooooo happy I did it this way.

The bonus is that I sold my 2012 set for more than I paid for it, and kept the nice big Black Box that my originals are now kept in, along with (3 original unique only to Canada) original LPS,  plus the original Canadian Magical Mystery Tour Album.

 

I highly recommend people do this instead, but again, you can't argue with 180 gram pure virgin vinyl!

TBH I might buy the new box set and get the other original monos I need as well. I'm only missing Rubber Soul, Revolver, White Album and Yellow Submarine. I think I might have a 70s reissue of AHDN as well, not sure. The one I might have trouble getting hold of is the White Album with all the inserts and black inner sleeves, but I'm sure it can be done.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

^Yellow Submarine wasn't released in true mono, only a fold down (I'm sure you know that :-D)

 

IIRC, it was only the first UK pressing of the White Album that had the black inner sleeves, yes?

Ya, that one is the most expensive one to buy, in Stereo or Mono, and again depending how much you wan't to pay for quality and low number, followed by Sgt. Pepper.  There seems to be a premium on those 2 titles.  Also Yellow Sub with the red lines on the rear cover is a little pricey, especially since it's hardly a great LP.

The rest are relatively cheap compared.  The biggest expense is shipping from the UK!
