Beatles Re-Masters 9/9/2009

I was beginning to think this would never happen. About ******* time:



7th April 2009

Apple Corps Ltd. and EMI Music are delighted to announce the release of the original Beatles catalogue, which has been digitally re-mastered for the first time, for worldwide CD release on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 (9-9-09), the same date as the release of the widely anticipated "The Beatles: Rock Band" video game. Each of the CDs is packaged with replicated original UK album art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. On the same date, two new Beatles boxed CD collections will also be released.

The albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at EMI's Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilising state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since its original release.

The collection comprises all 12 Beatles albums in stereo, with track listings and artwork as originally released in the UK, and 'Magical Mystery Tour,' which became part of The Beatles' core catalogue when the CDs were first released in 1987. In addition, the collections 'Past Masters Vol. I and II' are now combined as one title, for a total of 14 titles over 16 discs. This will mark the first time that the first four Beatles albums will be available in stereo in their entirety on compact disc. These 14 albums, along with a DVD collection of the documentaries, will also be available for purchase together in a stereo boxed set.



Within each CD's new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. With the exception of the 'Past Masters' set, newly produced mini-documentaries on the making of each album, directed by Bob Smeaton, are included as QuickTime files on each album. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.

A second boxed set has been created with the collector in mind. 'The Beatles in Mono' gathers together, in one place, all of the Beatles recordings that were mixed for a mono release. It will contain 10 of the albums with their original mono mixes, plus two further discs of mono masters (covering similar ground to the stereo tracks on 'Past Masters'). As an added bonus, the mono "Help!" and "Rubber Soul" discs also include the original 1965 stereo mixes, which have not been previously released on CD. These albums will be packaged in mini-vinyl CD replicas of the original sleeves with all original inserts and label designs retained.

Discussions regarding the digital distribution of the catalogue will continue. There is no further information available at this time.

I suppose it's been a couple of years since the last Beatles spin-off with "Love", so, you're right, it's about time there was another one.

Dunno why I thought that, so apologies and ting. This is good news, but it has taken a daft amount of time to happen, and I dread to think how much these albums will cost.

(Lizzy - hating the Beatles (or pretending to) is not in itself cool. Thinking McCartney/Lennon are/were twats is perfectly normal though.)

I don't care about cool anymore.

I just don't like the Beatles. Or Mccartney or lennon or Rongo or the other one.

The question is mono or stereo. I really hope they've spent some time on the digital mastering and haven't compressed it all to ****.

The only thing that's been digitally remastered so far is the Love thing which was like a Jive Bunny Beatles. I'm surprised it's taken this long for them to cash in on it.

Remasters out today

Well today's the day. Anybody going to get a remaster?

E.M.I. haven't made any friends by their mono boxed set antics. Having read a few articles I think I would've prefered to hear the earlier albums in that format. Never mind - I will have to stick to the stereo versions sold individually.

I think I shall sample one to see what the fuss is about: probably Abbey Road as in my book it's probably the To view the link you have to Register or Login. If they've done a good job with this then I think I'll have to get them all in the next few weeks...
