Customer Reviews

It is made of quality cardboard, I say quality because its a very sturdy box.
Thadius Zimmerman
It was formerly included as a bonus with an earlier incarnation of a Beatles EP collection issued as a boxed set in the early 80s.
MurrayTheCat
Also this set has many mono mixes which are different and in most cases better than the stereo mixes.

The box set Beatles EP collection has a lot going for it. Besides being an almost comprehensive selection of their catalogue, it includes mono versions of some songs that are not widely available (on CD anyway).
The real gem here is the packaging, which faithfully reproduces all of the Beatles EP artwork and culminates in the full reproduction of the Magical Mystery Tour double 45 booklet.
The Magical Mystery Tour CD's are notable for having BOTH mono and stereo mixes of the songs on
that EP.
A great collection for any Beatles fan. The songs are among the best ever in rock/popular music and never sound out of date.

The EP box set was the most recent collection issued by EMI, in the early 90s, and has the most up-to-date remastering. The CD catalog of 1987 sounds nothing like this, and even the CD Singles box set, which thankfully has the mono singles, but is still not as clear sounding as this EP box. Please Please Me is the litmus test: listen to the Singles box set version, and the actual Please Please Me CD, and then put this on from the EP box set...WOW. It's like a new world. This is by far the cleanest, clearest, most dynamic mastering of ANY of this material. From Me To You, She Loves You, Hold Your Hand, Slow Down, Can't Buy Me Love, I Feel Fine, Yesterday, all of these songs are in their best sonic incarnation on this box set. The EP box was indeed a well-kept secret. Basically, if you want to hear any Beatles song that was issued on EP, you need this. The sound quality is far superior over anything else currently available, and all of the songs here are in their glorious mono mixes, apart from the stereo/mono Magical Mystery Tour EP. And regarding the stereo Mystery Tour, it is NOT redundant to have it issued again in this box set, because as I've said, it has benefited enormously from more recent remastering, so the stereo versions of songs like Walrus, Fool on the Hill, and so on, sound better here than on the stereo CD from 1987. Contrary to the previous review, we HAVE been done a favor by having both versions of Magical Mystery Tour included here. It keeps the EP box set authentic, as MMT was originally issued in both formats, and once again, the stereo version sounds better here than anywhere else. If you're looking for the best sound, this EP box is a must.

This is a collection of the original British EPs with bonus material of questionable worth. We get one CD for each EP (for the most part, four songs per disc) in individual sleeves donning the original cover art. Thankfully, the two MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR discs--one mono, one stereo--each contain all six songs from the film (originally, the six songs where spread between two EPs in one package).
With this boxed set, we get more than our fair share of redundancy. 31 of these songs are the same mono versions that can be found on the group's first four albums--which have been available on CD since the late 80s--and the same mono versions of "From Me To You," "Thank You Girl," and "She Loves You" can be found on PAST MASTERS VOLUME ONE. Many of these 34 songs--again, the same mono versions--can also be found on the other compilations as well as THE BEATLES CD SINGLES COLLECTION boxed set, which gives us the rare, but exquisite mono versions of "I Want To Hold Your Hand," "I Feel Fine," "Day Tripper," "Paperback Writer," "Eleanor Rigby," "I Am The Walrus," and others.
Bootlegs aside, the mono CD versions available only in this boxed set are those of: "Long Tall Sally," "I Call Your Name," "Slow Down," "Matchbox," "Yesterday," "Act Naturally," "You Like Me Too Much," "It's Only Love," "Nowhere Man," "Drive My Car," "Michelle," "You Won't See Me," and five of the six songs from MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR ("Walrus" comes with the SINGLES COLLECTION mentioned above).
A major reason why I jumped to buy this release was to get my hands on the mono version of "Slow Down.

This is a beautifully-packaged set with all of the original UK EP covers and liner notes. EP's or extended-plays were quite popular in Britain and in Europe, and some even made the singles charts, even though they had more than 2 songs on them and were more expensive than singles. Although this set duplicates songs from the Beatles' albums and compilations on CD, it's well worth getting for the superior mastering. Most of the songs sound significantly better than their other releases on CD and the others sound at least as good. Also this set has many mono mixes which are different and in most cases better than the stereo mixes. The biggest improvements in my opinion are Twist and Shout, Nowhere Man, I Am The Walrus, Flying (the mono mixes)... actually I could go on and on! The sound is very smooth and natural. You can really hear the bass notes distinctly and follow the bassline on the songs. As well, She's A Woman has a count-in edited out of most other releases.
Expensive, but revelatory, sound-wise.
