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

Astounding! 22 Sep 2014
By john beacham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
When I hear people critizise the 'White Album' because they think there is too much filler, or it could have been condensed to make a nice single LP, I think of Pauls' comment on the Anthology video, where he basically says, get over it, it's the friggin Beatles white album, it's CLASSIC!! After hearing this astounding mono release, I can really appreciate Pauls' sentiment. There are so many breathtaking moments of new discovery on this mix, I don't even know where to begin. Having never heard the mono mix before is to my advantage for sure. After all these years, the music is obviously in our DNA, but to hear these pure analog mixes as the fabs originally delivered them makes the magic all the more real.

It's probably a good idea to have your remote handy, because the volume isn't consistent throught-out. For instance, you go from the tight, rocking studio perfection of 'Birthday', to the almost garage-y lo fi sound of 'Yer Blues'. Everything on this mono release sounds beefier, bigger, and more detailed. You will just want to crank some of these up, until your ears can't stand anymore, like 'Me & My Monkey', 'Revolution', 'Glass Onion'. 'Helter Skelter' is scarier and more menacing than ever, and what a throat shredding vocal from Paul. The mono mix omits the 'blisters on my fingers' line at the end and shifts quickly into one of the records finest moments, 'Long, Long, Long.'. Even the jarring, brilliant mess that is 'Revolution 9' holds your attention. Every track is essential.

What more can I say?, this is just such a joy and revelation to listen to. Much praise should be given to the craftsmen and technicians who brought these mono mixes back to life. Also, the pressing and packaging is flawless. I did get the double Y cord setup in place before playing these mono LP's, and it does sound great; very clear, pure and present.

Not just another Beatles re-release... 14 Sep 2014
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
If you're a Beatles fan AND a vinyl collector you need to buy this version of the album. The sound quality is super clean - not one pop or click. And they did a great job replicating the original packaging.

Incredible 3D warm pure analog sound from master tapes that I've waited 35 years for Apple/EMI to deliver. Finally it's here... 19 Sep 2014
By H. Kipfer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
This review applies to Sept 9, 2104 vinyl mono releases only. I've waited 35 years or more for new issues of pure analog Beatles on vinyl. No digital manipulation, or any manipulation, just music from original analog tapes to LP's. After years and years of disappointing digital releases and digitally modified vinyl, I thought this day would never come. I actually gave up buying music for a 20 year span. Based on listening to these new all analog mono LP's, I have found these Lp's have very little noise, if any, sound fantastic, and the pure analog sound is as good or better sounding than original Capital/EMI/Apple releases, in my opinion. No harsh compressed sound, no 2 dimensional sound, no digitally remastered sound transferred to vinyl, and no more dashed hopes in DVD Audio and SACD. These LP's sound fantastic.

Like many Beatles fans, I grew up listening to them in the 60's. They made a violent and polarizing time in America more bearable. In the 60's, I bought and played their LP's until they were damaged beyond repair. I bought into digital music in the 80's only to find that it paled in comparison to pure analog. I should have bought more pure analog LP's while I had the chance, but, thought the medium was gone, whether I liked it or not. Finally I found vintage equipment (Sansui 6700 Receiver, Marantz Model 6300 Turntable, and JBL S312BE Speakers) and set out to spend mega money on EBAY for sealed analog LP's from the 60's and 70's. Unfortunately, many albums made in the 70's were made of cheap thin vinyl and were often warped or had defects/noise when new and right out of the package, but, I persevered and have a good collection of Beatles and other pure Analog LP's and some 45's.

You don't have to spend Mega money, however, as these mono releases are superb in quality and sound. There is very little noise, often none between songs. The LP's are flat as they are 180 grams, and most importantly these LP's sound warm and beautiful. I just sat back, closed my eyes and let the music and harmonizing soothe my soul. I did not buy the box set for $375. I bought each individually. This along with a $40 reduction for applying for a credit card brought the total to about $250, and if you get a defective album, you can send it back instead of the whole box.

Remember though, "Let it Be" and "Abbey Road" are not included in the box set as they were only made in stereo. Capital US releases like "The Beatles Again" and "Beatles 65" won't be there either, but, you will find those songs in these mono releases anyway.

Thank you Apple/EMI/Optimal Media (Germany) for giving audiophiles what they've wanted for so many years. You did good.

as it is beyond a classic album and is probably my all time favorite record. this is at least the fifth time ... 10 Dec 2014
By bill fletcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
a no brainer to give this album five stars, as it is beyond a classic album and is probably my all time favorite record. this is at least the fifth time that I've purchased the white album in various formats, but when the mono vinyl releases came out, I had to see what the true mono mix of this iconic album sounded like. i'm not disappointed! it's amazing what little nuances jump out at you while giving a close listen. even 'obla di obla da' sounded fresh and it's my least favorite song on it. it's just a fuller more rounded sound and hearing drums clearer on 'yer blues' rhythm guitar on 'sexy sadie' or the hog grunt effects on 'piggies', makes it a new listening experience. and knowing that this was how it was intended to sound back in '68 when released makes it even more satisfying. the packaging is great (with original poster and 4 individual photos of the band)

my only complaint is that album #2 (sides 3 & 4) of my copy is slightly warped and it is very obvious when sitting it on the turntable. I listened closely to see if it affected the sound, but it doesn't seem to. still, it is a little disturbing to pay almost forty bucks with shipping for a record that i already have four copies of to be defective in any way! I don't think i'll send it back, as I don't need the hassle right now. this is a quality control issue and certainly has nothing to do with the music. and one last QC issue. the center cut hole on album 2 is so small that it is very hard to remove from the turntable spindle. geez, Apple!

The Mono Cartridge in the Middle of the Room No One is Talking About 17 Sep 2014
By Flabby Choad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
I think one of the main things anyone needs to acknowledge here is that if you really want to derive the true benefits of these releases you'd better have the mono cartridge, etc. I know I splurged a week ago on this release, and while I trust completely that all of the written-about TLC that went into these records is equal parts the packaging (exemplary) and the music, to my ear, this was nothing like my white vinyl version issued in the 70s with Apple labels, demo disc records I have shown off many times to CD purists. I am going by my EAR, and almost 40 years of listening to this album, and all I can deduce without measurements of any kind nor any type of mono cartridge or switch on my system was this mono White Album was not particularly enjoyable. In my case I felt it was quite the opposite from comments noting harsh top end; to my ears it was lacking the air or space of the stereo releases I have known forever, bordering on dull. Sure, some of that perceived 'dullness' is the different nature of the mono mixes in contrast to the stereo mixes, but I have to believe it is because I am not playing them back on a mono cartridge. That is to say, I firmly trust these really do sound wonderful if you are able to play them properly, but maybe for the average consumer with a decent two channel system we are not likely to hear the greatness of these records that undoubtedly lives in the grooves. And, this will really get my ass good and kicked: I think forty dollars later, rather than buy another one of the records, I will look to spring for the mono CDs while admittedly trading in AAA sound for the ability to hear the actual mono recordings without investing untold hundreds of dollars in mono playback equipment.
