About this deal

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. Despite the extra time that a 24bit/192kHz or even a 24bit/96kHz master would have taken to create there was, according to Magee, no real deadline for this project. So the impetus for using the 44.1kHz files was? “I was told to use these 24bits, so that’s what we used, it was the most practical.” Abbey Road was a -4/-3 beautiful recut by Harry a few times after the original Malcolm cut. His best cutting was on the green vinyl edition, in which I actually prefer over the -2/-1 original. The MFSL has its moments but is just way too bright. I’ll take the -2/-1, but with the vinyl of this 1978 pressing. Baby You're A Rich Man - the true stereo version, previously found just on the German Magical Mystery Tour LP.

Please Please Me had a -2/-2 cutting and was honestly not the best. It felt like a thin wall was covering the music. I put on an A2/B2 german pressing of Please Please Me and finally heard what others were claiming when they said this cutting was a revelation. Not a good start but it didnt sound like dung. Would even take the MFSL pressing over this though. The Beatles Box Set is a sixteen-disc box set compiling the entire recorded works of the Beatles as issued by the band between 1962 and 1970. It was released on 15 November 1988 in Britain and America, with the same catalogue number (Apple BBX2-91302) in each of those countries. [2] While available also in vinyl LP and cassette formats, the box set was the first complete collection of original Beatles material to be released by EMI and Capitol Records on compact disc. 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.Ultratop.be – The Beatles – The Beatles In Mono" (in Dutch).

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. Everyone knows these 70-80s HM cuts sound great, and they really do. It always takes a new release for me to appreciate how well this set was made. Lewisohn, Mark: The Beatles Recording Sessions.
