Tempting as that may be, I'm going to have to go with the tried-and-true "If you buy me this [something I really want, i.e. Beatles album], then I'll get you this [new towel set, Sting album, awkward frog sculpture] for Christmas. Maybe I'll even clean my room for a change."

Well, if you do end up trying it, I hope you'll have more luck than I did.

The response I got was "No, only for crack"

I have the Stereo Box Set, so no, I won't do it. The thing is that I have some balance in my iTunes account and I don't really know what to do with it. I'm slowly buying some songs from other artists I like, instead of the whole albums.

 

My next Beatle shopping project is the solo albums. this month I'm getting Plastic Ono, Band On The Run and Electric Arguments.a-hard-days-night-john-3

Oh and those are the privileges of making a living, I can spend my money in whatever Beatle thing I want, even if my Dad hates them.

I already brought Dear  Prudence, TWICE because the first one didnt take! Only problem is my Beatles playlist is on my Blackberry not my iPod so if it doesn't play on BB I don't think Im going to buy it.

So your mom hates '60s & '70s music yet likes Sting?!

That's just sad.

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!"

Right--The Kid here sez that FINALLY she might be able to get her (15 y.o.) pals to buy some Beatles' music, now that it's on iTunes...but as for our household, let's just say we've got a LOT of Beatles recordings and won't be buying any more until they come out in 5.1 or some higher resolution than the USB 24 bit version....I'm still reelin' from the remasters and the Rock Band multi-tracks.....

Yes, my mother puts them around the garden. They're odd, but better than these freaky garden gnomes...

Band On The Run is in my top 5 albums. It's amazing! Still haven't got Electric Arguments yet thougha-hard-days-night-paul-4

Right then, so the iTunes stuff is half as much as the Remasters. But I really really love listening to CDs in my car. What do you guys think I should get? Does the Remaster set come with extra goodies? And Paul? I might have to go with that one. but it's so expensivea-hard-days-night-ringo-4

This one of the few times I will say to go for the cd set. Sure, you can burn cds, but I rather have something 'solid' when my computer inevitability fails. Plus, cds I make myself tend to get lost.

What about in the case of the USB vs. the stereo box? The USB is 24 bit, as opposed to the 16 bit box set, but I'd prefer to have it in the form of the box set...

Oh, I'd go with CDs over computer files every time.....like Skye sez, for that inevitable, heart-sinking feeling of "Where.....where did all my songs go?!?!  I knew I should-a backed-up the computer, ruzzah-fruzzah-frigga-fruggin'......."

 Plus, the art-work on the box sets is simply beautiful, no question!  The record labels on the discs....oh, man, niiiiiiice!  And the sound.....ahhhh, I'm still blown away by them!

The 24 bit/USB files sound pretty sweet but I'd only spring for them over the remasters if you're one of those insane people (sheepishly raises hand) who won't be entirely satisfied until they're listening to THE master tapes themselves.  The master tapes were digitized as 24 bit/ 192 khz files--the current CD issue is the standard Redbook 16 bit/41.1 khz.  So, while the CDs sound great--especially compared to what was out there on CD--EMI/Apple has higher resolution versions.  If they put those out in some sort of DVD audio format, and I'll buy yet another set.....(I know, sucker....)

The iTunes offerings seem aimed more at the casual fan:  the really ardent Beatle fans were the ones running the box set stock empty at Amazon when they first came out......*heh!*

You sound like me. I am so thrilled with the box set, would love to own the USB, but will not be completely satisfied until I can buy a time machine to go back and be in the studios while the master tapes were being recorded. Untl that machine is built, however, I'm glad to have the tangible discs for the same reason you and skye mentioned. This reminds me of the scene in Men in Black when Tommy Lee Jones said to Will Smith, "looks like I'll have to buy the White Album again!".

From the press release it looks like I can finally get the Beatles Album Art into my iPod so that's exciting as well.

As for you CranberrySauce, don't dis the gnomes! a-hard-days-night-george-10

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.
