Have you ever hard of hardcore collectors. You know, those sort of people who would buy the same things with the slightest of differences multiple times, I’m sure they would buy all 3 sets in both vinyl and CD formats, along with the original records in both US and UK variants and the 1987 releases.  

Hardcore fans will purchase whatever and Apple know they have fans like pinatas where any release is basically Apple beating them until money comes out like candy.

You could argue for the albums in whatever (whichever?) way you prefer them tho one thing is pretty much guaranteed – Apple will somehow balls it up.

If Apple knows that they have hardcore fans by the balls, then why hasn’t this stuff been released:

Let It Be DVD

The US Albums vinyl

A Collection Of Beatles Oldies reissue vinyl

The Beatles original multitracks

Maybe you should try posting more.

The multitrack, though I’d love to have them, would allow people to make and share their own remixes, so they would actually lose money if they released them. 

I can’t explain the others, though.

Shows The Beatles in a bad light and we can’t have no shiny Beatles, how would the world continue spinning? Paul, Ringo, Yoko and Olivia all have reasons not to grant its release and we need all four to say yes. More chance of Apple withdrawing the latest ‘Hollywood Bowl’ CD, apologising for screwing it all up, refunding those who bought it, and giving us a proper complete release with a decent cover.

The US Albums vinyl

5 are being released as part of a Capitol anniversary collection so don’t be surprised to see them all at some point. Apple are slow.

A Collection Of Beatles Oldies reissue vinyl

Why does anyone need this? Was never a Beatles idea anyway, EMI were filling the Christmas gap in 1966. It was meaningful once upon a time but made entirely pointless with ‘Past Masters ‘.

The Beatles original multitracks  

No chance for now (or in the next decade), Apple have only just gotten around to streaming. And why would they when they know it would enable fans to ignore all the lovely remixes, remasters and reissues they can give us. They won’t even give us a follow up to the 1963 official bootleg download!!

 

Apple know the hardcore fans will buy the product so instead go for the casual fans as they want sales, believe the hardcore fans will buy anything, and have staunchly set out their target market. Apple still believe they can sell hundreds of thousands of copies of reissues and remasters without trawling the archives too deeply and so why bother. Apple haven’t satisfied the hardcore fans for years.

You could add album box sets to the above list and here we are still waiting for anything. ‘Pepper’ is 50 next May/June (depending on what release date you go with as it was released early in some places) and that has been the pin in Apple’s backside to get them creative in the past (1987 CD’s, 1992 documentary) so that is the fingers crossed. If nothing comes then we might as well gather up some supplies and go into hibernation for the next decade or so.
