Amazon.com is listing a “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition (6 Disc)” – CD version, 26 May 2017. I’ve Got A Feeling that the official announcement will come later today.  

If there is indeed 6 discs then here’s my prediction/hope:

Disc 1: Sgt Pepper album remixed + Strawberry Fields Forever , Penny Lane and Only A Northern Song remixed

Disc 2: Sgt Pepper album in mono + Strawberry Fields Forever , Penny Lane and Only A Northern Song in mono

Disc 3: Sgt Pepper album original stereo mix + Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane original stereo mix (Only A Northern Song was not originally mixed in stereo)

Discs 4: Outtakes

Disc 5: More Outtakes or 5.1 mix

Disc 6: DVD featuring the promo clips for Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane and A Day In The Life , the 25th anniversary documentary and other relevant stuff.

If you listen to that clip closely, you have quite clearly John and Paul’s “twist it, shake it” comments. It’s so buried in the original mixes that I didn’t even know it existed until today.

Despite the latest teaser not revealing much, I think it’s fair to assume that an announcement will be made by the end of the week at least. 

Exciting times!

There is no picture on the product listing, but when you preorder it, you see this tiny picture:

Okay, it looks like they have added the picture to the product listing now:

It looks like four audio discs and two video discs. Two versions of the album, a DVD, a Blu-ray and two sessions discs.

If you hover over it on the Amazon site, you can zoom in and see the DVD and Blu-ray logos.

Focusing on the CDs:

Pepper-Deluxe.jpgImage Enlarger

Disc 1: Sgt. Pepper ‘s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Disc 2: Pepper Sessions

Disc 3: Pepper Sessions

Disc 4: Sgt. Pepper ‘s Lonely Hearts Club Band

EDIT: Looking closely at the cat. no. on Disc 4, it looks like a PMC to me, which would confirm there’s a mono disc.

If they do this for every album, we will only have to spend 1,800 more US dollars.

Ooh, that looks nice! I was considering opting out of this one, because I rarely play CDs nowadays, but the book and the visuals might swing it.

2xCD Anniversary Edition (looks like both discs are stereo, presumably the album and a sessions disc):

2xLP Anniversary Edition (you can see that Paul’s written an intro piece):

1x CD Anniversary Edition (not sure who this is aimed at; it seems rather pointless):

They’ve also removed the image of the super deluxe edition from Amazon.com. I wonder if Apple gave them a slap on the wrist for uploading it early.

Currently i’m as very hopeful and intrigued as when there were reports of a song being found in the vaults before it turned out to be ‘Hey Bulldog ‘. If the announcement is as it seems to be turning out (4 cds, 2 dvds) then it will go up to ‘Anthology levels’. Apple might just do something right.

Hopefully we get the ‘Making of Documentary’ from 1992 included.

Amazon now has a little over a minute video showing all the goodies included. Maybe it took the place of the picture?
