I've got the 10CD bootleg set that has every available BBC sessions (which is about 98% of what they ever recorded for the BBC). There's some GREAT stuff on there not on the 2CD set,

 

Having just gotten the 2-CD set, *iz jellus*. a-hard-days-night-john-6

The full set is GREAT, no question, but there are something like 20+ different versions of From Me To You, She Loves You, Thank You Girl, etc. Which makes sense since they were plugging the singles and had to play them live. But it gets quite repetitive after a while. The cover songs are what made the 2CD set great and there are some more unreleased ones on the 10CD set that are great, like Talkin' 'Bout You, for instance, and different versions of the ones on the 2CD set.

Grr, there SHOULDN'T be any room for improvement! They should get everything right the first time, once and for all. Will it be easy for Apple to recapture that 09/09/09 hype again if they do it again in five years? I think not.

Do they really expect that I'm gonna go out and buy FIFTH copy of Sgt. Pepper??

(Sure I will!...if they package the mono and stereo together.)

There we go - that's the kind of thing I'd love to see on an expanded 3-or-4 disc version of that release! (It'd be great to hear exactly where Paul got that "I Saw Her Standing There" bassline, for one thing.)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Exactly. They know that most fans will jump at the chance to buy anything ''new'' with The Beatles name on it, even if they could have improved them to that standard years earlier (and we know it). This kind of thing gets on my nerves a lot.

 

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I have the mono and stereo from 2009 why do i want it again? Why would i buy it again? I gave up this whole buying every concoction of a reissue with John's catalogue - excluding true remixes (Beatles only) from the master tapes done better than the Yellow Submarine Songtrack.

If they want me to rebuy any of the albums then they have to start with the outtakes - and im not talking about 2 for each or taking them from Anthology, it should be at the very least a full bonus disc of at least 60 minutes. If they have any thought for the fans we would be getting deluxe boxes of the albums with each 50th anniversary LP but its Apple so we got a botched Love Me Do single - which i flipping well bought. And for Please Please Me? Nothing. Oh wait an updated website with a documentary we already have. Wey-hey, tie me down otherwise i'll dance myself to an early grave.

It took them 22 fecking years to get around to releasing the remastered catalogue. 22 fucking years!! Still, got it down from 25 for the Anthology series so probably thought they were being generous to us.
