Examiner article on efforts to track down Jimmie Nicol in 2005 and the watch that The Beatles and Brian Epstein gave him at the end of his stint as Ringo's replacement.

Wogblog has pictures of the US edition of the upcoming AHDN box along with the front covers of various countries releases – no prizes for guessing which country has the crappiest cover.

From the Examiner:

Here's Paul-l-l-l-l-l!: The full show from the night Paul McCartney's appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” to celebrate Carson's birthday in 1984 is included in “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series: Volume 3,” just out on DVD, one of six in a new series of discs featuring full episodes from the classic NBC late-night show.

We were lucky enough to see the show live with Carson twice. Hopefully, there are tapes of the funny things he did when the show went to commercials. That was something to see.

Edit: It's actually Vol. 2, not 3, if you follow the link.

Apple confirm mono vinyl to be released on the 9th September 2014 reports Examiner and Wogblog.

Apple press release

THE BEATLES’ ORIGINAL MONO STUDIO ALBUMS REMASTERED AT Abbey Road DIRECTLY FROM THE ANALOGUE MASTERS FOR VINYL RELEASE

180-Gram LPs Available September 8, Individually and in a Limited 14-LP Boxed Edition with Hardbound Book 

London – June 12, 2014 – The Beatles in mono:  This is how most listeners first heard the group in the 1960s, when mono was the predominant audio format.  Up until 1968, each Beatles album was given a unique mono and stereo mix, but the group always regarded the mono as primary.  On September 8 (September 9 in North America), The Beatles’ nine U.K. albums, the American-compiled Magical Mystery Tour, and the Mono Masters collection of non-album tracks will be released in mono on 180-gram vinyl LPs with faithfully replicated artwork.  Newly mastered from the analogue master tapes, each album will be available both individually and within a lavish, limited 14-LP boxed edition, The Beatles In Mono, which also includes a 108-page hardbound book. 

In an audiophile-minded undertaking, The Beatles’ acclaimed mono albums have been newly mastered for vinyl from quarter-inch master tapes at Abbey Road Studios by GRAMMY®-winning engineer Sean Magee and GRAMMY®-winning mastering supervisor Steve Berkowitz.  While The Beatles In Mono CD boxed set released in 2009 was created from digital remasters, for this new vinyl project, Magee and Berkowitz cut the records without using any digital technology.  Instead, they employed the same procedures used in the 1960s, guided by the original albums and by detailed transfer notes made by the original cutting engineers.  

Working in the same room at Abbey Road where most of The Beatles’ albums were initially cut, the pair first dedicated weeks to concentrated listening, fastidiously comparing the master tapes with first pressings of the mono records made in the 1960s.  Using a rigorously tested Studer A80 machine to play back the precious tapes, the new vinyl was cut on a 1980s-era VMS80 lathe.  

Manufactured for the world at Optimal Media in Germany, The Beatles’ albums are presented in their original glory, both sonically and in their packaging. The boxed collection’s exclusive 12-inch by 12-inch hardbound book features new essays and a detailed history of the mastering process by award-winning radio producer and author Kevin Howlett.  The book is illustrated with many rare studio photos of The Beatles, fascinating archive documents, and articles and advertisements sourced from 1960s publications.

The Beatles In Mono:  Available individually and collected in a limited 14-LP boxed edition, accompanied by an exclusive 108-page hardbound book.

Nice to see mono vinyl coming out! But how much do the initial pressings cost? And what's really the main difference between mono and stereo?

@thisbirdhasflown Put, basically, The Beatles were more involved in the mono mixes, while George Martin did the stereo mixes generally without them. If you want to hear The Beatles as they intended themselves to be heard, you need the mono.
