If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I only bought the four new songs on YS on iTunes because I was cheap.


I'd have probably done that if we hadn't bought YS already. But I probably would have only bought "It's All Too Much" and "Hey Bulldog.

I bought all 4 just to have all the Songs.

You could buy them an album each of the stereo remasters from just about anywhere, and their mom can rip the cds for them. Yellow Submarine or the Red and Blue albums would be good for this occasion.


I second that. When I was a child, I listened to the Red and Blue albums A LOT. When they feel like listening to more, depending of their preference (early or late Beatles) they can start getting the albums using this compilation as reference. Yellow Submarine is also a fantastic choice, many kids "meet" the
Beatles through the songs from the movie, I know because my nephews did.

 

I hope this helps!

Both of them have the UK versions of all the albums. The stereo is the better choice, though, because Abbey Road, Let it Be and Yellow Submarine were never released in mono, and therefore aren't in the mono box set.

The stereo set sounds better, too, in my opinion. The mono set is more for completionists.

Sarveshaam: Welcome! And to answer your questions-

 

One: Well, I Am The Walrus has that extra bar, and so does Sgt. Pepper's (Reprise)… There's some differences, but they're very miniscule.

Two: Only the Stero Box set contains all the UK songs in stereo. (with some exceptions, like She Loves You). All the singles are there, too. The mono box set is missing Yellow Submarine (the album), Abbey Road, and Let It Be.

 

"The thirteen-disc collection contains the remastered mono versions of every Beatles album released in true mono. The original 1965 stereo mixes of Help! and Rubber Soul

are included as bonuses on their respective albums. (Both albums had

been remixed by George Martin for their original release on CD in 1987.)

The box contains a new two-disc compilation album entitled Mono Masters,

which compiles all the mono mixes of singles, B-sides and EP tracks

that did not originally appear on any of the United Kingdom albums.

The albums Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road and Let It Be are not included in this set, as no true mono mixes of these albums were issued. A mono version of Yellow Submarine

was released in the UK, but it was simply a fold-down (two stereo

channels combined into one channel) from the stereo mix, not a unique,

separate mono mix. The previously unavailable true mono mixes of the

four new Beatles songs released on the Yellow Submarine album ("Only a Northern Song", "All Together Now", "Hey Bulldog" and "It's All Too Much"), originally intended for a separate, but ultimately scrapped, mono EP, which would have also included a mono mix of "Across the Universe", are included on the Mono Masters compilation. Abbey Road and Let It Be

were issued in the UK in mono on reel-to-reel tape and on LP in Brazil

and other countries, but again, only as fold-downs from the respective

stereo versions.

Also omitted from this set, but included in the Stereo box, is a DVD containing the mini-documentaries included with the stereo remasters of the different albums.

The Beatles

(The "White Album"), which is included in the set, was originally

released in mono only in the UK and a few other countries, but not in

the United States. However, the mono mixes of "Don't Pass Me By" and "Helter Skelter" had been released in the US in 1980 on the Capitol Records Rarities compilation album."

I agree with Paulrus, buy the Stereo Box or the Stereo Apple USB. The USB has much better quality. I have it, and it is worth the $300!

Try Amazon, it isn't available in stores.

 

Hope this helps!

I almost forgot – You mentioned little bits with chairs squeaking and odd noises and such. If you want to find them, use this website. It lists all Beatles songs alphabetically or by album with all the "anomalies" in that song. It has Anthology talking transcripts and more. It's really useful and I recommend you visit it when you get the Box Set.
