Biography

"The story began in Harold Macmillan’s “never had it so good” ’50s Britain. It should be fiction: four teenagers with no more than eight O’Levels between them, running and biking and busing and busking all over Liverpool in search of new chords and old guitars and half-decent drum kit and any gig at all.

They were determined to amount to something ... Read more in Amazon's The Beatles Store

I've had the Beatles Stereo Box set for nearly a week now, and have listened to all the albums a number of times through and feel compelled to post my feedback to help anyone unsure about taking the 169.99 financial 'plunge'....

In fairness, I have to admit to being a dedicated Beatles fan (for the past 40 years) - so I'm not going to give an unbiased view on the music collected together here in one place...it's a true treasure trove.

However, I do back up the point a number of other reviewers have put forward that, whisper it, some of these remasters don't actually sound that good - they're better than the 1987 releases, without a shadow of a doubt - but let's face it, it would be difficult for them not to sound better after 22 years of CD development!

Now don't misunderstand me, several albums in this Box Set sound substantially better compared to the late 1980's digital releases:

ABBEY ROAD is now a very satisfying, detailed and dynamic listen - this is especially apparent when you hear the musical 'duel' of guitars and drums that make up the album closer 'The End' - in truth, every track on this remaster is far better than the muddy mix on the 1987 CD.

THE BEATLES (White Album) now delivers a fine stereo image with real 'studio depth' it relays intricate detail to vocals whilst projecting plenty of power to the lead guitars and well defined low end grunt to the bass guitar - all in all this new release beats the old 1987 2CD set quite easily.

SGT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND is now a more balanced stereo experience, especially satisfying on Headphones - all the instruments and vocals now sound believable and crisp, with Paul's melodic Bass playing really jumping forward - it makes the 1987 CD version redundant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stereo Box Set Review 9 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have received my Beatles stereo box set today with eager anticipation of hearing The Beatles in the best quality today's technology can give us. I have to say that although I have heard these albums many times before the crisp, clear and almost new freshness to the records is beyond my expectation. I am very pleased to say the least. I don't have over the top expensive music equipment or the need to break each recorded layer of a song down to the finest detail, I just want to sit back and listen to one of the world's finest band in superb clarity....this box set does this!! Great packaging, great pictures, documentaries and information on each album...Fantastic. This is the best Beatles collection to date in my opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware 24 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this set back in 2010 from an Amazon Seller called Retail Therapy, I stupidly paid the cheapest price available. Big mistake! I only found out recently by chance while looking on the internet, that it is in fact A FAKE. I initially complained about 2 cds, which they replaced. A Hard Day's Night did not have the CDR documentary and the booklet pages weren't printed in the correct order. The White Album did not have the replica poster and there are misprints on the sleeve, Wild Honey is listed twice. Also, On Revolver the Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr's names are misspelled, there are various errors on the fake box sets, including the ribbons that should be black and not red and on the albums Help! and Rubber Soul EMITEX is spelt EMITES. The obvious errors occurs on Past Masters, after Rain track 5 lists a song called lady and then 5 is listed again as Lady Madonna and You Know my Name is listed as You Know My Mane. If you Google search this box set you can find all you want to know about spotting a fake. I don't want this to happen to anyone, so if you do buy this set, buy directly from Amazon, or if using a seller check straight away, once you receive it and try and contact the seller immediately!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatles Served Up Luxuriously 27 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
I did not buy the boxed set, I bought the albums separately just like I did when I bought the original LP albums either in mono or stereo when I was a teenager.

I do not intend to comment about the the quality of the recordings, other than to say that compared to the LP records that we bought in the 1960's and which we played on primitive equipment they sound fantastic.

The original Beatles Long Players are imprinted on my mind so I can make an instant comparison between these remasters and their original counterparts. Every time I listen I hear new detail. The remasters are revealing new subtle differences in the quality and depth of the music and the fact that I am playing them on a genuine HI-FI also helps enormously.

Do not hesitate to buy these versions.

On these pages there is a lot of debate about whether you should buy the mono versions as well. Perhaps, the mono versions give you the more authentic sound? It is more a matter of opinion than fact. If you can afford it then go ahead; I am sure that you will not be disappointed. I have listened to the Sgt. Pepper mono remaster. This sounds fantastic compared to what we were listening to in the sixties. I have always preferred "She's Leaving Home" in its stereo guise as the pitch sounds more natural than the mono version. When we were teenagers some of us had the stereo LP and some had the mono version so we were able to hear the difference in pitch. AM radio also played the different versions. Buying the mono versions will not get you back to how we listened in the past even if you listen to the recordings on a cheap mono CD player.
