Here, at Amazon.com ($399); http://www.amazon.com/gp/produ.....0box%20set

Here, at amazon.co.uk (299 pounds): http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/pro.....0box%20set

Here, at Amazon.ca ($350): http://www.amazon.ca/gp/produc.....0box%20set

 

Edit: This is insane. It's cheaper in Canada. I've never seen anything cheaper on the Canadian Amazon as opposed to the US.

The mono vinyl is coming in 2013 reports PRNewswire (where you can read the whole article, this is just an excerpt) 

The Monos 

In 2013, the remastered albums will make their mono vinyl debuts.

Wogblog also notes that you can get the box set at What Music for £274.99.(and thanks to Wogblog for the head up).

OK, side note, but my three copies of the withdrawn Love Me Do single just arrived. Nice! I've also got the Magical Mystery Tour box set on its way, with the replica double EP.

It's not an absolute replica, regardless of the Andy White/Ringo mispressing. The songs are credited to MPL Communications, which obviously didn't exist in 1962, and the label says: "Made in the EU", "Recording first published 1962" (though that may have been on the original too) and "Digital Remasters (P) 2009. The copyright in this sound recording is owned by EMI REcords Ltd (C) 2012 EMI Records Ltd".

The sleeve is hard cardboard too, unlike the original flimsy paper. I haven't got my original copy to hand so I can't compare the rest.

Anyway, nice to have some copies of a collector's item. I bought mine from thebeatlestore.co.uk in Liverpool, but I think they've taken it off their site now.

Mhh these might be valuable in the future, since the release was withdrawn. Maybe not enough to pay for Teddy's college but who knows? some books maybe? a-hard-days-night-john-2a-hard-days-night-john-2

Exactly. They've been going for £50-100 on eBay this week. I've no idea if they'll go up or down - occasionally things that initially seem rare lose their value once the true number that hit the shops emerges. I'm tempted to sell one now, then hang on to the others a little longer.

I've also heard that there'll only be 6,000 copies of the corrected version made available, so that'll be a rarity too.

Sorry, I should stay-on-topic

The REAL bitch of it is that a month ago I got tired of waiting on this box set to be announced so I bought The Beatles Collection, The Beatles Singles Collection, and The Beatles EP Collection. All three of the vinyl box sets released back in the late 1970's. The LPs were in good shape, but the EP and singles collections were beyond mint condition and in glorious, glorious mono. I wish I had waited to buy this one though. 180 gram 24/96 vinyls...dammit.

I've got the same collections, Cooper, all in excellent condition, and have NO desire to obtain this set.

How much more of an "authentic" Beatles LP sound can one get apart from the LPs that have already been released- mono, stereo or otherwise? Whether the technology existed at the time, or the specific "180 gram 24/96 vinyls" were not originally used, what could you possibly expect from a reproduction of a reproduction onto a reproduction from a reproduced original master tape, even if from the very recorder that originally captured the sound that has been reproduced, remixed, remastered, remade from it's entire original intent to form yet one more "new" audio revelation that your super-sonic, vastly superior ears will separate from ALL THE OTHERS as the Very Best, Most Desirable and Life-Completing Acquisition of a recorded Beatles document as mankind has yet offered to the heretofore deprived and most discerning audio-intellectualists who have managed to survive a half-century of inferior, crappy-sounding records, tapes, CDs and wireless internet transmissons that THIS LP set will crush and destroy all previous opinions and experiences of an auditory nature that have come before it???

I'll check back with you after I've burned and/or eradicated ALL pretentious-sounding, incomplete Beatles so-called "music" on worthless sources that never should have been released in such a sorry, prehistoric state.

Let's share a 'pity luncheon' together sometime, shall we?
