Rolling Stone have published a preview of the box-set, including a "tour of the eight most revelatory moments on Imagine : The Ultimate Collection."

I don’t feel the need to get any deluxe McCartney boxes, but I’m all in for this one. I’m excited about it.

I'm curious about those extra 128 pages in the collectors edition, but I don't know if they are worth 200 dollars to me.

The trouble with the McCartney deluxes is they promised so much and delivered so little, and have been so stop-start. There's a fantastic bootleg/pirate Archive series that craps all over Paul's official efforts.

As I say somewhere upthread, Pepper and this seem to be setting new standards, which hopefully the expected White Album  will keep up.

A short clip of the How Elements mix has appeared:

Steve Guttenberg Audiophiliac went to a listening session last Monday, and he's got a video and article giving his reaction:

and the article can be found here.

Listening to the Raw Studio Mixes Lennon's vocals are so completely naked they're startling. I've never heard Lennon sound so real, so immediate and full of life, it was a real treat for this Beatles fan. When I closed my eyes, Lennon all but materialized in front of me!

Really short clip the Flux Fiddlers's one... So, i was checking out this site and i said "ok, i'm a complete fan so i'd buy the complete fan bundle..." but i got a bit confused since the details only list the movie and the documentary and it's price is 130$... so, is that all what they have in the complete bundle? or is it that plus everything else (cd's + vinyl + book)?... Another thing that confuses me is that the "The Ultimate Collection + Poster" only costs 89$ and it's loaded with stuff (except the movie and docu)...

Your link doesn't show what you're looking at, @Shamrock Womlbs, but seeing it was showing "page not found" on the US Universal Site, I followed Joe's link to have a look.

It's the picture that's important (this is for the Blu-Ray bundle):

bundle_bluray.jpgImage Enlarger

Box set + clear vinyl + Imagine /Gimme Some Truth Blu-Ray + (?) poster - I think there's some comment upthread that the US bundle doesn't have the poster, but I can see a poster there. (There is also a DVD bundle).

I'm assuming they've only detailed the movie and documentary because they're the main addition to box-set, and they've detailed the box-set elsewhere and think that if you're looking at the bundle, you already know about the box-set and are telling you about the main addition.

The book you can see is the book that's part of the box-set; the Imagine John Yoko book is not part of the bundle.

Yep, @Shamrock Womlbs, same goes for the DVD bundle. Only difference between the BR and DVD bundles is the Imagine /Gimme Some Truth  disc - which is a BR in the BR bundle and DVD in the DVD bundle.

@Expert Textpert may be able to add something as I believe he's already ordered.

Yup, that was pretty much the only thing crystal clear to me X)

Fyi the bundles have all sold out on the UK store. Clear vinyl is still available for now - I'm not sure how many copies are being pressed (semi-related, the Egypt Station coloured vinyl edition sold out in just a day or two). If you're thinking of getting a copy I wouldn't hang around too long.

That's the impossible to say, @Shamrock Womlbs. They could easily come up with a new, but roughly the same (normal vinyl instead of clear), bundle now they realise this is selling. Also, are you sure the US site has sold out? I just tested the US site and it went so far as adding it to my cart (I wasn't going all the way and actually ordering it so it may fail at that point).

@Joe, still not corrected the typo in your article?

Yeah they are available in the US... only problem is with tax and shipping it's final price is 160something euros... which i think is paying a bit too much...I'm a little hesitant anyways...

The US fan bundle doesn’t list the poster in the items list when you add it to the cart, but it is shown in the photo.

It probably comes with the poster. 

That’s all I have to add.

I changed my order to the collectors edition book because I found it cheaper than what Amazon is selling it for.

Universal U.K. have yet to cancel my original order. It will have been 2 business days tomorrow.

Hopefully I don’t get charged for two ultimate fan bundles.

At any rate, there should be one more set available soon.
