As some of us may have hoped, this party is just getting started.

The funny thing is, it's been a while since I've listened to the White Album, and I'm kind of bored with saying it's the best album ever, etc. So this will come at a good time!


Does this mean the short version of 'Helter Skelter' in a new stereo mix?

Well, I've been billed $110 US by Amazon and they claim I'll be united with this thing by tomorrow evening.

Meanwhile, MP3 versions of the new mix and the outtake CDs are already out there in the ether. I feel like I can wait.

Going to walk to work on this sunny afternoon with a handful of the outtakes playing on headphones. Really excited.

Will report back...

So are we doing a synch listen on the 1st?

Could do the first Bowie after :)

I notice that 'Strawberry Fields Forever' is a '2015 Remix'. Presumably that was the audition?

It was made for the 1 DVD, I believe.

I really notice the "edit point" on this one - which I never really did on the '67 mixes.

Sprung for the 2cd version in Sainsburys this evening, £15, and grabbed that Free 5 Classic Albums for £9 at the same time.

Man, wish already i'd bought the big box, really hard to read the inlay booklet (i know, a minor point, the music is the important part but still, tiny black writing on green background screws with my eyes, need to get stronger glasses,) but that aside, gonna give this a nice play tomorrow. it can wait for tonight, Saturday play for me, empty house, play loud, starting with cd2, of course.

The new documentary (which isn't in the box, btw) doesn't feature any Beatles' music or any Beatles talking about the music (unless you count Pete Best):



The docu that's included in the box is this one, I think:
