Macca has been trailing his new album Egypt Station and says 50th anniversary White Album release is “all lined up”.

Another remix job?

The Esher demos have long deserved an official release. But yeah, I do hope there's a bit more to it. Maybe some previously unheard outtakes? I'd say "Carnival of Light," finally, but it's not contemporary, and I imagine that particular ship has already sailed...

If it is not being remixed, what’s another remaster going to do to improve it on the last remaster?

Yeah but you can’t let the anniversary go by without product. It should come bundled with the BCB Beatles.

Aren't there supposed to be a couple super long versions of Helter Skelter that have not been Anthologized yet?

We should remaster and re-release Bcbeatles to an undeserving public. Its probably ten years now.

I’m hoping it’s a single album. That should finally settle the arguments.

Hopefully they can finally whittle it down to a single disc.

Anything shorts of 36 discs would be criminal. Two discs of "Honey Pie", please.

An update from someone at superdeluxeditions:

Phil Cohen says:
August 30, 2018 at 22:00
The official announcement of the editions and contents of The Beatles’ “White Album” expanded reissues will be at a press event on the 26th of September. What little we know is that “Lady Madonna” will be included, as will the “Esher Demos”, pre-production demos recorded on 4-track at George Harrison’s house.

2019 will see “Abbey Road” get the deluxe treatment.

I'm sure it'll be exactly like the Sgt Pepper's box: remaster (mono & stereo), remix, 5.1, & extra discs of various takes of each song. And now we know the Esher demos will be included. The book for the Pepper's box was outstanding, I'm sure this will be the same.

I listened to about the first 5 minutes of Howard Stern's interview with McCartney. Howard asked McCartney if he loved his mother. McCartney said yes.

That's top notch broadcasting right there.

I'd be all for a re-released mono boxset, if those remasters are any improvement on the set I already have.
