Abby Normal Posted July 17, 2009 Report Share Posted July 17, 2009 So, while I've been ripping our CDs to FLAC I got to my wife's Beatles collection (I do like them, too--but not quite enough to have bought any of these myself) and I found that her Abbey Road is pretty much unreadable. I did I search and found out that they are releasing stereo remasters of all studio albums (including "Past Masters") and a boxed set of these (14 albums + various bonus features such as a DVD with all mini-documentaries, etc). In addition, they are releasing ONLY a boxed set of MONO remasters--which is, of course, very exciting to Beatles afficianados because generally the artists nor their primary mixing engineer (George Martin) participated in the stereo mixes. The mono mixes was their focus and this is how many Beatles fans heard the music.So I've heard...My wife and I are not old enough to have experienced this. Is anyone here planning on getting the mono boxed set and do you think it is worth getting it eventually? It's due for release September 9 and the current price is still a little out there for me--but I'd like to hear some thoughts about not just the mono remasters but the stereo remasters, too.By the way--this is not a thread for "I'm not a Beatles fan" comments--those comments are fine, but only if you have something more substantial to say to contribute to the intent of this topic.Thanks.
