"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."

The last paragraph in this CD's enclosed booklet states ". . . because the 1962 twin-track tapes of 'Love Me Do,' and 'P.S. I Love You' had been discarded, the original stereo vinyl LP presented them in fake stereo. Although this was common practice at the time, it subsequently fell out of favour and so these songs are presented on this CD in mono."
Herein there is no "fake stereo." And I had forgotten what monaural could sound like. What "in the studio" could sound like. Until now. Apple engineers Paul Hicks, Steve Rooke and Guy Massey have given the world a great gift through this reissue. Outstanding job guys!! The rest of us — Don Your Headphones and Slip Away, because after all "There's A Place" awaiting in your mind.
For you audiophiles - yes, it sounds different comparing to a mono version, but it still sounds great.
To make sure - talking about Capitol November 2012 edition pressed in EU (UK I think).
No, with 6 covers, this isn't the most inventive Beatles album by any stretch, but as a historical document it's essential. This is March 1963 !! At the time, the liner notes say, teen-oriented music was by and large singles, with LP albums mostly the province of "...easy listening instrumentals and musicals of stage and screen."
But when the needle drops here, McCartney shouts "One, two, three, FOUR" and the band careens into "I Saw Her Standing There" sounding almost punk-like in attitude. Not hard to imagine 5 million horrified British parents covering their ears. But it's too late Mom, the cat's out of the bag... and racing across the globe.
Top international reviews
Although I already possessed the cd and a further re-mastered version of the same album I just had to have the vinyl for completest reasons.
It is in my opinion still one of the 3 greatest first album recordings by a group of all time.
The history of PPM is well documented so I am not going to repeat all it here. Just a couple of personal comments: I like 'PS I Love You' (unlike a fellow reviewer !) and I still think it would have been a stronger A Side than 'Love Me Do'. I also believe the same even more so of 'Ask Me Why' although, in this case I wholeheartedly endorse the choice of 'Please Please Me' - a terrific song and I can still remember hearing it on the radio as my mother did the ironing when it was in the charts way back then...
As a CD package, I like how it's been done - especially with dates and places on the photo's. The mini documentary is good too. My only minor gripe is that it is a cardboard holder rather than a plastic case ; otherwise a great job and does not disappoint.
The packaging is very good. A nice glossy booklet with some very early photos. The notes are not very comprehensive and do not go into much detail about the re-mastering at all, which is a great shame.
The Mini doc is ok at about 5 mins long.
So if you have the mono version buy this, you won't be disappointed.
and raw.Love it,love The Beatles
