Please Please Me: The sound on the mono is just amazing. You can hear the echo in the room as John sings Anna. The vocals just soar. Ringo was just so good, even at this early stage and so was Paul. They supported and framed the songs so perfectly. And just think, in twenty-one minutes, or so, Twist And Shout! Stereo can't hold a candle to this, if for no other reason than the left/right "stereo" found later in With The Beatles, Rubber Soul and Revolver.
With The Beatles: As with Please Please Me, the mono sounds so, so, nice. As the stereo has that annoying left/right "stereo," no contest: mono hands down.
A Hard Day's Night: Seems better and more enjoyable in stereo. I think the reason is that they now had four tracks so George Martin could do proper stereo mixes and still have a mostly fresh first generationish sound. Remember, there were only two track available for Please Please Me.Read more ›
The Beatles recordings were similarly constructed with their earliest Stereo albums attempting to showcase the new recording method by separating the music into the widest possible soundstage. This was meant to be more lifelike than Mono but to my ears it always seemed to dilute the music a bit. On the Stereo albums Paul's bass lost a bit of its punch and never really reproduced the 'fat bottom' that anchored those beautifully recorded Beatle records. The wide dispersion of the vocals had a similar effect.Read more ›
FAST FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE! What is great about the original non-fake box set?
*Album (CD) covers are Exact replicas of those issued in the UK
*The CDs are replicas of the record labels issued in the UK
* The CD covers are larger than normal size making them very easy to handle and easier to read and enjoy!
* The booklet is large and full of info and photos
* Also, the "Help" and "Rubber Soul" CDs include the additional 1965 original stereo mixes on them so that is very cool.
* And please note that even though this is a USA Box set, ALL the CDs state that they were manufactured in Japan. That's actually a good thing.
* The four Beatles songs from YELLOW SUBMARINE album which were not previously issued in Mono on CD ARE included on the Mono Past Masters CD in this box set. They are "It's All Too Much", "All Together Now", "Hey Bulldog" and "It's Only A Northern Song".
* Wonderful, clear mono sound with special goodies like the Original Single Record version of "Help", the fast version of "She's Leaving Home" which is how Paul intended it to sound (By the way, when George Martin made his "Insightful Comments" on the "Making of the Pepper Album", he never talked about "She's Leaving Home" as he did not actually produce it in its entirety.Read more ›

|white album - stereo or mono?||
I've listened to the White Album for the first time in mono and I'm not sure what to think about it. My favorite Ringo song, "Don't Pass Me By" is sped up to make him sound like a chipmunk! No blisters on his fingers either? I don't have the remastered stereo so I can only go by the... Read More

Yeah, don't buy on ebay. Only buy from reputable online retailers; Bestbuy, Amazon, et al. If it looks too good to be true, then odds are it is.

|"Tomorrow Never Knows - XEX.606-1 - Shouldn't this be on Mono Masters||
Are you sure it was no. 11? I could have swore it was Number 9 - at least that's what I heard Ringo say in an interview when he was promoting the film Cave Man. He did the drums in mono, and they they broke it out to two tracks for the stereo mix - but only for the Capitol album in the U.S..... Read More

|Bands that sounded like The Beatles (pls not Oasis)||
The first specific SONG that came to mind (even though I know the question was about bands) that is the most "Beatle-cloned" I've ever heard is "Because" by the Dave Clark Five, 1964. I remember when I FIRST got into 60's pop music and before I had fully built up my Beatles... Read More

|what's the difference between stereo and mono? what sounds better?||
Agreed with much of Byron's comments but the wide stereo wasn't for novelty effect; it had to do with the limitations of the mixing boards at Abbey Road Studio at the time. Flexible panning was not fully available - hard left and hard right was all that was available technically until new mixing... Read More
