P.S.I Love You should have been * listed as mono it's not and of course the forever mono mystery of She Loves You, The Beatles' Classic 1973 'Red' and 'Blue' Collections Remastered by Apple Corps Ltd. and EMI Music for Worldwide Release in October". emimusic.com. 10 August 2010.

The albums Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road and Let It Be are not included in this set, as no true mono mixes of these albums were issued. The same holds true for the songs " The Ballad of John and Yoko", " Old Brown Shoe" and the single mix of " Let It Be", which were also omitted. A mono version of the Yellow Submarine album was released in the UK, but it was simply a fold-down (two stereo channels combined into one channel) from the stereo mix, not a unique and separate mono mix. Abbey Road and Let It Be were issued in the UK in mono on reel-to-reel tape and on LP in Brazil and other countries but, again, only as fold-downs from the respective stereo versions. The fast version was destroyed. It was a heavy record, but the stereo mix made it into a piece of ice-cream. [12] Limited edition [ edit ]I wanted to also throw in a copy of the Mobile Fidelity pressings for this test, released in 1982, but this proved impossible to source in the time while purchasing one would have meant not eating for the next year or so, such is the high price of this set. This was why I used the official 1978 masters box set which does allow me to sample the official master tape-derived masters from a similar time period. In addition, if you want to sample vinyl masteres from this period, the ‘Blue Box’ masters can be yours for a much lower (although still relatively high) price. Sgt. Pepper was a -3/-4 and sounded really good. I still prefer the -4/-5 1980 pressing, but this one did its job. The -1/-1 original isn’t as good as its made out to be, its congested and sounds like it has been run through sandpaper. The MFSL pressing was also ruined by the bass boost. So the winner still goes to the -4/-5, but its not in the comparison list so I’ll give it to the -3/-4.

It wasn’t a fun listen because i kept thinking about my mono masters set. At least i have it though. Richardson, Mark (7 September 2009). "The Beatles: Stereo Box / In Mono". Pitchfork.

The first four albums ( Please Please Me, With the Beatles, A Hard Day's Night and Beatles for Sale) made their CD debut in stereo, though most songs from those albums have previously appeared on CD in stereo on various compilations. Both Help! and Rubber Soul use the remixes prepared by George Martin for the original 1987 CD releases (the original 1965 stereo mixes were released on The Beatles in Mono). Magical Mystery Tour is presented in the sequence and artwork of its original North American Capitol Records album release, as opposed to the UK six-song EP.The Beatles (The Original Studio Recordings) received the Grammy Award for Best Historical Album at the 53rd Grammys.

at EMI, Trident, Olympic, Apple, De Lane Lea, Chappell and Regent Sound studios, London; Pathé Marconi Studio, Paris; EMI Studios, Bombay A Hard Day’s Night was a -2/-3 cutting. Side 1 was basically the -1 but with a 2 stamped over it. I am not a fan of the -1/-1 original of A Hard Day’s Night, so side 1 was too hot and was sibilant heavy. Side 2 was a complete 180. It sounded FANTASTIC! Smooth, clear and uncongested. Would take this over the original and the MFSL. Gold & Platinum Certification - March 2010". Canadian Recording Industry Association.

Lennon stated during a 1974 interview:Overall, this is a great sounding box. Maybe the 1980 box will sound better, but it doesn’t have these great covers so I guess nobody wins. I highly recommend this box to anyone who does not have any stereo pressings.

The 13 Studio Albums and Past Masters remastered in stereo using the same digital sources as the acclaimed 2009 CD's on 180g Heavyweight Vinyl I’ve rammed through so many stereo pressings of the Beatles catalogue. The mono albums are easy-just buy the CD and Vinyl mono boxes from the past decade. The stereo albums on the other hand is so complicated. There’s the originals, hundreds of recuttings, MFSL pressings, DMM pressings, digital remasters and digital transfers. I can’t really explore the CDs, but I can at least talk about the vinyl cuttings. I hate the long matrix cuts from the 80’s pressings. I heard Sgt. Pepper from the box and was disgusted as to how bad it sounded. So, I decided to try to avoid an 80s box set. It took me so unbelievably long to find this 1978 box at a decent price, but I finally found one. To compare, I have original cuttings and an MFSL box. Heres my review:

The Beatles was a -1/-3/-1/-2 pressing. I love this album, the -1/-1/-1/-1 original is a fantastic pressing. Good thing side 1 and 3 carried the -1 originals, because they sounded the best. Side 2 and 4 did need a recut, so this box pressing came in clutch and was the best one. The MFSL was just bloated, just not as good as the UK pressing was.
