I only bought one of the remasters, the main one I wanted get, Yesterday and Today. It arrived today and I purchased it Monday from Amazon. I have Amazon Prime, so I get two day free shipping. 

I might buy the other remasters, but this is a good start. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Nice one.  I must say I am VERY impressed with the whole package - the mini LPs are nicely done and I like getting both the paper and plastic inners (or whatever they are made of).  Much better presented than the Russian McCartney knock-offs I accidentally got off eBay when I thought I was getting Japanese mini-LPs :)

Oh yes I am trilled with the packaging as well. I like them a slightly more than British remasters just for little bitty added bonuses like the sleeve. :D

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

There are some very vocal fans around the place, but a few stones can rattle loudly in an empty can - a new saying I just made up :) .  I ran some polls over at the SH forums - and of the folks who weren't buying the set; less than 20% gave the reason as their being unhappy about them not using the 'right' mixes.  I do sympathise though, there should have been a Volume 3 of the Capitol Albums series.

Personally, I have just listened to Meet the Beatles and the sound is absolutely brilliant, particularly on the mono - which - as I have bored the socks of most of you off with this - is the main reason I got the box *very relieved*

The stereo is good too, but that 'vocals one side / instruments other' thing still bothers me - but even though I have the 2009 stereo box it all felt very fresh due to the running order being so different to what I am used to.  My ears are not up to noticing if these stereo versions are any different to the 2009, rumour has it there has been some 'tweaking'.

As mentioned, physically it is a really nice box too.  Overall - I'm really glad I have it.

I know you're not into boots etc but Doctor Ebbett  got stereo PPM and WTB mixes with the vocals centered and put them out; you can find the working link for PPM here. I haven't heard it yet but feedback on it can be found here.

And this is why i never felt any requirement to buy the box. All the reports from the beginning said that Apple were fiddling with the offerings so whilst its a right pain in the backside, and another blatant statement of Apple's incompetence, you can't really buy the box and then bitch you don't get what it originally was in the 60's. You knew before because you were told before.

Reminds me of John's comment on And Your Bird Can Sing "another of my throwaways ... fancy paper around an empty box". The contents in the box are largely throwaways but the packaging is nice. Definitely not worth £120 or whatever it is.

Well I'm glad those nice Canadians sold it to me for around half that price then :)
