Wouldnt surprise me if a single collection was released, tho i hope to all things Beatle they dont a) include some rarity so we have fork out a fortune and b) it doesnt include all the singles that were released in the 70's and 80's.

 

Coming to think of it there is actually a few odds and ends out there that are not currently available on cd: Movie Medley (tho thats a good thing) and the additonal tracks from the Baby Its You ep & Free As  A Bird and Real Love singles.

No doubt there's fanatics out there who would like the Capitol albums on vinyl too.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Some of you guys are talking about the price of the box and that the price is dropping. Are these actually up for PRE-order right now? If so, where? Where are you getting these prices? Send links please.

Here, at Amazon.com ($399); http://www.amazon.com/gp/produ.....0box%20set

Here, at amazon.co.uk (299 pounds): http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/pro.....0box%20set

Here, at Amazon.ca ($350): http://www.amazon.ca/gp/produc.....0box%20set

 

Edit: This is insane. It's cheaper in Canada. I've never seen anything cheaper on the Canadian Amazon as opposed to the US.

The mono vinyl is coming in 2013 reports PRNewswire (where you can read the whole article, this is just an excerpt) 

The Monos 

In 2013, the remastered albums will make their mono vinyl debuts.

Wogblog also notes that you can get the box set at What Music for £274.99.(and thanks to Wogblog for the head up).

That´s good. I´m just going to wait until next year then and maybe get one or two (if they are sold individually). If I can find half-decent originals then I probably won´t.

As I've understood they're the same digital remasters with the CDs with a couple changes sto they're suitable for vinyl (and better sound quality too). So that means that the vinyl version is made from a digital file. That's why I'm not sure whether I should buy it or buy earlier pressings made from the original master tapes...

I pre-ordered it.  I had to.

 

I figure that I'm going to see it in the stores, and then I'll look at the individual vinyls and start drooling over them, so I might as well get a good price and get the whole damned set right off the hop.  

I'll post pics next month when it arrives.

I pre-ordered, but I'm seriously thinking of cancelling. I'd rather have the vinyl in pristine condition than play and wear them out, and £300 is a lot to lay down for a nice thing to look at. The book looks good but Howlett's sleeve notes for the remasters were fairly dull. Also, if I buy the vinyl box I'll probably talk myself into getting the mono one next year too, and I can't keep chucking money at stuff I've already got (it's the music that matters, right?).

For that money I could complete my original vinyl collection, so I think I'll do that instead. Though I did buy three copies of the withdrawn Love Me Do reissue last night, in case they become collectors' items. Hopefully they'll arrive.

So it's cheaper in the US. Maybe because it's a british band they assume there's more money in it in the UK?

I broke down and pre-ordered it through Amazon.ca.  At $349 plus tax, that makes each of the 16 vinyls at about $25 each.  Seems fair.

 

And then the mono vinyl box set comes next year...  *sigh...*

OK, side note, but my three copies of the withdrawn Love Me Do single just arrived. Nice! I've also got the Magical Mystery Tour box set on its way, with the replica double EP.

It's not an absolute replica, regardless of the Andy White/Ringo mispressing. The songs are credited to MPL Communications, which obviously didn't exist in 1962, and the label says: "Made in the EU", "Recording first published 1962" (though that may have been on the original too) and "Digital Remasters (P) 2009. The copyright in this sound recording is owned by EMI REcords Ltd (C) 2012 EMI Records Ltd".

The sleeve is hard cardboard too, unlike the original flimsy paper. I haven't got my original copy to hand so I can't compare the rest.

Anyway, nice to have some copies of a collector's item. I bought mine from thebeatlestore.co.uk in Liverpool, but I think they've taken it off their site now.

I know what I'm asking for for Christmas this year! They should have started with the mono one though, because I would rather get that first since it's the more exciting one. They have been putting too many things out recently, it's hard to keep up with it all.paul-mccartney

Mhh these might be valuable in the future, since the release was withdrawn. Maybe not enough to pay for Teddy's college but who knows? some books maybe? a-hard-days-night-john-2a-hard-days-night-john-2

Exactly. They've been going for £50-100 on eBay this week. I've no idea if they'll go up or down - occasionally things that initially seem rare lose their value once the true number that hit the shops emerges. I'm tempted to sell one now, then hang on to the others a little longer.

I've also heard that there'll only be 6,000 copies of the corrected version made available, so that'll be a rarity too.

I'll probably be buying this purely because I just really really want it, and it looks very nice. Though I know the price is a lot, but I'm okay paying that.
I'll most probably get the mono boxset aswell and carry on with my original vinyl collection.

The REAL bitch of it is that a month ago I got tired of waiting on this box set to be announced so I bought The Beatles Collection, The Beatles Singles Collection, and The Beatles EP Collection. All three of the vinyl box sets released back in the late 1970's. The LPs were in good shape, but the EP and singles collections were beyond mint condition and in glorious, glorious mono. I wish I had waited to buy this one though. 180 gram 24/96 vinyls...dammit.

I've got the same collections, Cooper, all in excellent condition, and have NO desire to obtain this set.

How much more of an "authentic" Beatles LP sound can one get apart from the LPs that have already been released- mono, stereo or otherwise? Whether the technology existed at the time, or the specific "180 gram 24/96 vinyls" were not originally used, what could you possibly expect from a reproduction of a reproduction onto a reproduction from a reproduced original master tape, even if from the very recorder that originally captured the sound that has been reproduced, remixed, remastered, remade from it's entire original intent to form yet one more "new" audio revelation that your super-sonic, vastly superior ears will separate from ALL THE OTHERS as the Very Best, Most Desirable and Life-Completing Acquisition of a recorded Beatles document as mankind has yet offered to the heretofore deprived and most discerning audio-intellectualists who have managed to survive a half-century of inferior, crappy-sounding records, tapes, CDs and wireless internet transmissons that THIS LP set will crush and destroy all previous opinions and experiences of an auditory nature that have come before it???

I'll check back with you after I've burned and/or eradicated ALL pretentious-sounding, incomplete Beatles so-called "music" on worthless sources that never should have been released in such a sorry, prehistoric state.
