Well, I'll buy it and moan about how much it is and that I already have the mono mix (twice) and that I don't need a blu ray and a dvd of a 30-year-old tv documentary, and muttering about carnival of light yet again, but then I'll spend hours poring over the book, sticking the posters in frames on the walls and obsessing over the new mix and out-takes/different versions, and I'll like just looking at it on the shelf.

Not that arsed about the DVD content but this is a must for me. When "Revolution in the Head" came out, with Macs Pepper-pinnacle viewpoint, I sneered a little (ha! what about the White Album you div!), now I fall in line.

Very clever.

Well, there aren't many bands - there aren't many albums - I'd fork out this kind of money for, but I'm all over this one.

Some speculation that if this sells well they might do the same for the White Album next year. That would be amazing.

I hope they don't go down the anthology route and splice together takes and whatnot.

The package alone looks super cool. I'd buy it just for the poster

It would. Although the one i really want to hear broken down is Abbey Road. I feel like I know all their albums inside out – every story of how every song came about, demos, etc, but Abbey Road s always glossed over – despite it being (arguably) their most complex album.

I mean, you are more than welcome to laugh at me here, and it is such a deeply desperate remark, but...POSSIBLY a "hidden track"?

I know EXACTLY how I sound...

Have you heard of the Hoffmann board? I think you'd like it there

Perhaps it's the background music on the DVD menu?

Gorts, can you change the thread title to "50th anniversary Sergeant Peppers not to "reinstate" Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane"?

The greatest album of all time.

It's a lot of money, and I can't really afford it...but what the fuck: that box-set will be mine.

Lucky it's Father's Day around then, and even luckier I've got five kids!

So what did Ringo think? He thought it was great! Why? Because it originally was recorded on a 4-track with a lot of over dubs, which buried the drums. Now, the drums have been lifted and come through as they should. He was pleased. You'll be glad to know it was remastered at EMI Studios where it was originally recorded."
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, I guess Allison confuses remastering with remixing.

Or maybe Ringo was mis-remembering an album he apparently hadn't listened to "in decades." I never thought the drums were buried on that album.


Remastering the same mix could possibly have an effect on the drums becoming more present, but, it sounds like they did actually do a new stereo mix which is what he was listening to.

Cheers me to read that.

Sometimes I think it is. The sound of the thing is still absolutely extraordinary.
