I wonder if the original Live At The BBC will be worth keeping, or whether the remaster should replace it?  I assume it will be worth keeping as there will be noticeable differences in the sound.

When I got the 2009 remasters of the Beatles catalogue I did get rid of the 1987 CD's.  Did anyone keep these 1987 discs?  They sounded very muddled to me.

For the completists you need to keep Live At The BBC '94 for "Have A Banana" which for some reason has been switched for a new Ringo piece of dialogue from 1964 "Ringo?, Yup!". It is the right intro for the performance of I Wanna Be Your Man but the wrong outro for A Hard Days Night. I'd suggest keeping the booklet and cd inserts and throwing the rest out, which i did with the '87 cd's.

I still have all of my 1987 CDs, as well as my original Live At The BBC (bought on release day in 1993!). I never get rid of Beatles stuff 8)

If I had the decision to make again, I would keep them, but (unless someone has a good argument to the contrary) I don't think my ears are missing anything.  I never bought them in the first place--they were a gift from a friend who bought the remasters.

If I remember correctly, I traded those 1987 discs (along with a bunch of other old CD's) for an Anthology DVD box, the John Lennon Anthology box, John Lennon Live in NYC, Life With The Lions, The Wedding Album, and a book called The Beatles:  The Unseen Archives.

Sounds like a great trade.

I only have the original and remastered Cloud Nine to compare, but I gave the old one to my daughter and would do the same with other folks if I had older versions of any others to spread the word.

But then I am not into stuff with minor variations etc. which I appreciate interests a lot of people.  Now that I have replaced them all the only part of selling the LPs I regret is the inferior packaging to some of the CDs - but I had 2 of the White Album so have the photos which were my favourites.

That sounds like a damn good trade...I'd say you made out better than the other side! :)

 

Yes, I was quite happy with what I brought home that day.

trcanberra, a friend gave me the remaster of Cloud Nine and it sounds to me like they just boosted the bass and turned up the volume.  The original version sounds fine to me.

We have plenty of topless Beatle pics on this site.

You can only get into the full Sun website thru paying for access.

The One Show had an exclusive Words Of Love video (early b&w clips with colour animation over it) - played right at the end and lasted around 30 seconds. Presumably a full video will be made available at some point.

I noticed they moved to a sub - I used to check out their football reports for a laugh (it had nothing to do with Page 3 girls - honest injun).
