Well I'm very late to this party and I doubt anyone will reply but... referring to the surround sound thing... does this mean that the DVD in the new White Album box set would have the isolated tracks to the ENTIRE White Album ?

  

The DVD or Blu-Ray will have isolated tracks on them for the different discrete channels.  BUT, they will not be isolated instruments because Giles Martin did not mix it like that.

Correct. While the centre channel often gives vocals, bass and drums, no channel is isolated.

There has been a significant source upgrade on these over the last couple of months. You may want to hunt around for those instead of trying to get the original files.

That is also true. 

Though the top frequencies are missing on the new files. Each have their benefit.

You can also use OOPS (Out Of Phase Stereo) on the audio, which would give you a rough instrumental of any song. And if you isolate the center in audacity you can usually get the isolated vocals to any song in stereo.

Unless you're working with Rubber Soul , some of Revolver or some of the White Album .

Definitely a good method for albums like AHDN .

More than that. Please Please Me and With The Beatles have instruments on the left and vocals on the right, so does Sgt. Pepper 's title track and half the songs off Yellow Submarine . For those, isolate the channel that lacks vocals.

It's All Too Much is a special case since the backing track's centered whereas the vocals are double tracked, with each track having it's own channel. For this song, you'll have to go into Audacity and isolate the center channel because OOPSing will give you just the vocals and overdubs.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Also some earlier singles (Love Me Do , Komm Gib Denine Mir Hand, She Liebt Dich, From Me To You , and a few others I believe) have instruments on the left and vocals on the right. For Yellow Submarine you can just use the 5.1 DVD audio, the songs divide beautifully.

Update: Once you get the hang of it, making isolated tracks yourself is easy! For most songs, anyway. Some songs I just can't get certain instruments out (e.g. the organ in Mr. Moonlight) Usually its a simple process that goes something like this, for most songs in stereo:

Isolate the center of a stereo recording to get the vocals

Remove the center to get a rough instrumental

Isolate the lowest frequencies for bass

Remove the lower frequencies to eliminate bass, and the higher ones would usually be drums and guitar. For guitar, use the lowest frequency of the now bass-less instrumental, which should eliminate most sound from the drums (NOTE: USUALLY THE DRUMS AND GUITAR WILL BLEED INTO EACH OTHER, THIS IS NORMAL AND NO NEED TO FRET) and isolating the highest frequency should give you drums.
