Sucks that Beatles story is only available in the box set, I'll just get the incidental music from Helpand A Hard Day's NightI already have some of the capitol albums on vinyl, Beatles '65, Hey Jude, Rubber Souland RevolverSince I already have all of the UK albums, no point in getting the same songs.

Blog on fan backlash against the US Albums release.

I dislike John Montagna's closing argument (people are dying in the Third World so get over it) and he is wrong in that you are simply buying the packaging and can create the albums yourself from what is officially out-there at the moment: you can't, you are still getting the unique mixes that were originally on the albums and not on the 2009 remasters - its the fake duophonic and/or echo drenched mixes that are being replaced. 

What you are buying is not what was originally released in America in the 1960's, its revisionism - again.

I read through most of it....As an aside, it never occurred to me that my Capitol Red Album had duophonic mixes on it.  I think I have the Capitol red one and the UK blue one.

It looks to me as if everyone is freaking out and jumping to conclusions because this one guy ran a test and found out something sounded slightly louder in one channel and thus was probably sourced from the 1987 mono mix?

I really don't care.  We'll find out when we get it.  It's not a necessary purchase for me, it's entirely superfluous.  I have the 2009 stereo and mono boxes, and I have the 2004 and 2006 Capitol boxes, so it's not like I NEED more boxes.
