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

5.0 out of 5 stars Necessarily imperfect 19 Feb 2014
By Paul F
Format:Audio CD
First of all, let's clarify what this collection is NOT:

1) This is NOT a complete box set of the Beatles' output in America, and contains no material from 1967 onwards.
2) The mixes contained on here are those approved by The Beatles and George Martin in the 60s, and NOT the butchered, fake stereo, reverb-laden... etc... tracks issued by Capitol without their consent.
3) Aside from a few unique mixes and quirks preserved for this box (see below), there is no new music on here that you won't find in either the Stereo or Mono boxes released back in 2009 (Apart from a few instrumental tracks on the 'A Hard Day's Night' and 'Help!' soundtracks, that is)

To state the obvious, your interest in this set will largely depend on the level of your interest in The Beatles. This US Albums box is aimed squarely at the completist / collector audience who wants / needs it all.

If you haven't got anything by The Beatles, buy the Mono boxset first, and then get 'The White Album' in stereo, 'Let It Be... Naked' (instead of the original), the 'Yellow Submarine Songtrack' (again, instead of the original), the 'Past Masters' compilation and 'Abbey Road' to complete your collection. This box is just a happy bonus for Beatle nuts who can't get enough of them.

However, this is what you DO get with this set:

1) Well-crafted replica sleeves of the (cheesy) original US Albums listed above, sequenced as per the original Capitol releases, with all the surprising / baffling tracklisting choices associated with them.
2) Mono AND Stereo mixes of almost all of the band's material up to and including Revolver, together with the odds-and-sods, contract-fulfilling, stereo-only compilation 'Hey Jude', released in 1970.

The set on initial inspection looks fantasic. A collection of mini lps with original artwork, inners and disc labels, on heavy card stock containing mono and stereo versions of the albums where applicable, from the best sourced and cleaned up master tapes, all designed to mimic the original unique Beatles 60s US releases as faithful reproductions

However a closer look reveals some frustrating flaws which for something which seems to have been designed and created so meticulously - is unforgivable.

Firstly - packaging - the early to mid sixties US Beatles albums had 2 part covers pasted onto cardboard stock. The back sheet also contained top/bottom and spine info and was pasted to the back first and then wrapped around the sides. The front cover square was then pasted on to complete the cover. These new releases are the opposite way about with the front covers wrapping round to the back. A small observation - but important to those looking for authentic reproductions. Evidently the Japanese version of the box set does does it 'right'.

Secondly - music - Most Beatles mixes were standard the world over but, as with some other countries, the US occasionally got unique mixes and edits. The US also reformatted some of the standard UK supplied mixes to suit american tastes by adding reverb, or converting stereo mixes to mono and vice versa when the correct type of mix wasn't to hand.
These new releases promise to use the correct mono/stereo mixes so in most cases the approved 1st generation UK masters are now used, the US tapes only being used where the mix/edit is unique. All sounds good right? Not Quite...
Again due to factors unknown the set doesn't quite deliver what it promises.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise 20 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Firstly, I have to agree with the person who commented about people being able to post 'reviews' without even having invested in an item. That's particularly relevent, as I was a little dubious about pre-ordering this myself, after reading that the 2009 remasters had been used in many cases here. Before I get to my day's listening impressions: Yes- the packaging is BEAUTIFUL & positively scary in it's attention to detail. It screams quality (though I'm not going to paste the 'trunk cover' sticker over the Butcher sleeve & steam it off just yet! :-)).
As for the music (of course- superb), I'm a fan of many years, but NOT an expert when it comes to the various differences in mixes etc, that made the US albums intriguing for us Brit's. However, what I CAN say is:
This collection IS NOT just a reformatting/re-sequencing of the 2009 remasters, as has been presumed by some (myself included), though the differences aren't listed anywhere in the notes. This isn't an 'archealogical dig' folks. Of course, it made sense to get rid of the horrible 'fake stereo' tracks (which were enough to drive you nuts through headphones) & the original US applied reverb was an acquired taste. Never having owned all the US albums, I can't go into this in great detail (though someone will I'm sure)& personally I actually LIKED IT on 'The Beatles Second Album': one of the few I picked-up years ago & thought: "Hey!- this sounds kinda different!". Well- in that instance, the reverb's gone. But fear not: the mono versions of 'I Feel Fine' & 'She's A Woman' have their reverb intact & still sound like they were recorded in an aircraft hanger (for better or worse).
