The Beatles In Mono [VINYL]
The Beatles In Mono [VINYL]
Offered by MediaMine
Price: £249.00

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB VALUE FOR THIS WONDERFUL BOX SET. 100% CLASS, 15 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like owning a complete set of the Beatles original UK Mono albums in MINT condition (+ The US Magical Mystery Tour Album & a great double album 'Mono Masters' basically 33 non album tracks of singles/EPs), The MONO mixes are the best, I have never met any Beatle fan from way back who prefers the Stereo mixes. Each Album is an almost exact reproduction of the original record, flipback sleeves, label & inner record sleeves & all original inserts.(Only differences noticed are Mfd in E.U. printed on rec labels & records pressed on 180gm vinyl) A high quality hardback book (108 pages) covering each Album is included. If you are hesitating about purchasing this item because of the price, as I was, I can only say that I am so pleased that I purchased this wonderful box set. Oh & the music? well I don't need to tell any Beatle fan, that it is superb but it might just surpise Beatles fans who have only listened in Stereo before.

1.0 out of 5 stars VERY DISAPPOINTING QUALITY FOR AN OFFICIAL APPLE BOX SET, 17 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Beatles [7" Vinyl] (Vinyl)
Of course the 1 star rating does not refer to the Beatles music in this Box Set BUT the disappointing quality of printing of the picture sleeves, which appear to have been photocopied, so the images are slightly darkened and then look like they been run off on a home printer! rates only 1 star. The box itself is not of bad quality, it is serviceable but does not impress. To have included 2 singles with the Apple Company sleeve seems like a cost cutting cheat. Also why oh why was probably the worse ever photo taken of the Beatles chosen for the poster. Paul looks completely tired out & Ringo appears a mixture of tired & angry. The 'Apple' centre adaptor is nice but not £40 nice. The whole thing has the feel of a cheap rip-off product, the fact that it is an OFFICIAL APPLE RELEASE IS bordering on SHAMEFUL. Their are some great OFFICIAL BEATLES Box sets around, this is NOT one of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing number of Pics but insightful text makes this a must buy for P.P. & M fans, 17 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With such a scarcity of books about P.P.& M it is a delight to have this book. It would have been improved if the disappointing number of pages devoted to pictures & accompanying text (130) had been increased to allow either more pictures or more of a bigger size. As a photo journal, I would only award 3 stars but the personalized accompanying text (written by P.P & M) gives an insight into their world which I would give 5 stars. So evens out at 4 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book for the really enthusiastic Elvis lover, 20 Dec. 2014

This is a great book for the really enthusiastic Elvis lover, searching for something a little different to the average Elvis Book. In that case I would highly recommend it. However I would not recommend it to purchase for the Casual fan or as an introduction to Elvis' films

5.0 out of 5 stars These Sleeves are the perfect size & the perfect Gauge (400) for protecting Vinyl ..., 20 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For myself, as an avid Record Collector. These Sleeves are the perfect size & the perfect Gauge (400) for protecting Vinyl Record Albums. They will take both standard single & double Albums. A higher Gauge can have unforeseen problems. (Their seams can part & if the corners of a very high Gauge sleeve get bent, they actually damage the Album sleeve. A lower Gauge does not give the protection needed nor ease of handling for medium large collections. Even for the odd Album I recommend these sleeves, they will save the edges of the sleeves wearing & give Vinyl Albums a nice feel and treats them as special as they deserve.

This review is from: Sibling Rivalry [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
A good film, I laughed & smiled quite a lot. I happened to come across it some years ago & just happened to watch it. I'm glad I did & I'm glad to have it again to view when I want to, maybe just once each year but to me that is good because I am confident that each time I do watch it, I will enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun & an interesting mystery, 20 Dec. 2014

Great fun & an interesting mystery. The solution may in part be more obvious to American viewers, less so to non-Americans. I haven't read the book so I am unable to compare but the film is very enjoyable VERY ENJOYABLE

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't imagine anyone being disappointed who buys this, 20 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stone Free (Paperback)
Above all a really well written book, that lays bare some of the main hustlers & manipulators in the music industry. It mostly concerns itself with the late 1950's & the 1960's, though it draws some inspiration & portrays brief moments from earlier times. To people interested in the managers of the pop acts of the late fifties & Sixties it is an eye opening, mind opening read. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed who buys this.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very detailed account of the highly popular US Tv series of the sixties. As detailed as it is, it is never a dry read and in addition to how U.N.C.L.E. came about it gives an insight in how many Tv series get commissioned & aired. My only unease with the book is that the writer & contributers seem to continually suggest & stress that it was something more than just a very good Tv series, set within its time, borrowing largely from the success of the Bond films, The book certainly takes you back to the days it was 1st screened (If you were alive In the Sixties) For me the book creates a much better feel for the series than rewatching any of the U.N.C.L.E. Tv series or films which in my opinion, even as a very big original fan, are so disappointing.
