The classic original Beatles studio albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilising state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the Beatles catalogue has seen since its original release.
Within each CD's new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. The newly produced mini-documentaries on the making of each album, directed by Bob Smeaton, are included as QuickTime files on each album. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.

This album is not their best, but it may be a pleasant surprise for Millenials who think they know everything there is to know about the ultimate superstars of the 1960s.
Now this album has very little information on its cover, no photos included, and the inner sleeve is just a totally blank paper sleeve. So nothing special there, and very little info on the reverse side of the cover. It does have a large sticker on the front of the cover that includes this stunning (for me anyway) admission: "This album has been prepared using the 2009 Digital Remasters which had been created from the original stereo analogue master tapes" ...
Now Wait a minute... that means that I have just paid a premium price for a CD copied onto a vinyl LP. Why wasn't the Vinyl LP produced using the "original stereo analogue master tapes"? I ALREADY have all of this digital music on CD (and most of the Beatles albums on vinyl), why would a want to pay a premium price to buy it again, just copied onto vinyl? I am so glad that I didn't pop for the entire boxed set.
So I listened to the LP anyway, and yupper it sounds just like a CD. The Album itself is, IMHO, a great album. However, this release just feels like a bit of a rip off. Needless to say I will not be popping for any more CDs on vinyl. Be Aware...
UPDATE - GOOD NEWS, THE 2ND LP ARRIVED FLAT AS IT SHOULD BE. Audio is superb on the 2nd copy as well. I suspect this is a storage issue. The 1st LP that had a nasty warp on the leading edge and also had the paper record cover split on one edge. Maybe they are stacking these boxes so high the edges of the LP is getting smashed through the box? I dunno, but they better fix it pronto. I ordered a Traffic LP last year and had to send 3 back before I got a flat one.
