WogBlog has been posting reports of a vinyl release here, here (which includes a link to EMI, Czech Republic) & here. Everywhere else that mentions them usually ends up returning to Wogblog.

No idea about any discussion with men from EMI.

 

Another expensive Christmas?

I haven't heard any news, but it wouldn't surprise me (although I think they'd have announced it by now if they were planning it for the Christmas market - Magical Mystery Tour and the remasters were both announced by September, and released in October).

Full scale reproductions, in heavy-duty virgin vinyl, with a limited run (though still enough to sell to everyone who wants one, like the mono box). Can't see it failing really. I'd buy one, and I already own quite a lot of the original albums.

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

So the news is out and its damn expensive. The vinyl box is to be released on 13th November with the list price ranging between $449 and $499 (approx. £276 -> £307).

 

Beatles Examiner writes

“Each album features original U.K. vinyl album artwork, original U.K. track listings, expanded booklets containing original and newly penned liner notes, recording notes, rare photos, and fold-out packaging.  Everything comes housed in a tall, glossy, hard black lift-top case augmented with a magnetic clasp,” read some of the now missing description of the set from Music Direct.

“This stereo box set includes all 13 albums plus 'Past Masters.' It is comprised of the original 12 Beatles albums in stereo, with track listings and artwork as originally released in the UK, plus 'Magical Mystery Tour.' In addition, the collections 'Past Masters Vol. I and II' are now combined as one title, for a total of 14 titles over 16 discs all housed in a Super Deluxe Box!,” according to Elusive Disc.

No mention of a mono release tho.

 

Might be passing over this due to the price unless it is heavily reduced online.

Okay, this is so strange. I just started this thread weeks ago after hearing about this supposed vinyl box set since 2009. According to a ton of Beatles blogs and fan sites, there are some sketchy, yet appealing details beginning to emerge as you all have noted previously. All signs point to October 1st as the announce date. These vinyls were made by copying the original master tapes to 24/96 audio then digging that into lacquer. This set DOES INCLUDE Past Masters!!! Finally, now we won't have to buy shitty copies of vinyl Past Masters cut from horrible mp3 audio. If you want to know where I got this info just go and Google search "Beatles vinyl box set November 2012" and read the first page for yourself. The dawn of audiophile quality Beatles vinyl is upon us, my friends.
