4.0 out of 5 stars As they were meant to be heard?
These mono remasters are possibly more exciting and noteworthy than their stereo younger brothers. Although the new stereo albums have hugely benefited from a scrub with the sonic toothbrush, they were at least in catalogue before, apart from the first four albums and a few odds and ends, whereas the Beatles British album output from HELP! onwards has never been released...

3.0 out of 5 stars Stop complaining
Don't buy if you don't want to spend the money. No-one's forcing you.
I'm in audio/TV myself and can tell you they've almost certainly spent longer in the studio remastering these than they did recording them. It's not like these are free of cost.

And as someone who has listened to all the mono and stereo mixes and even has a dansette to listen to the odd...

1.0 out of 5 stars EMI shame, 9 Sep 2009
By 
This review is from: The Beatles In Mono (Audio CD)
Will I be buying these remasters - probably not
Why - because EMI are ripping us off. What everyone wanted was the mono and stereo versions on one disc at a standard price. They would have sold many many more copies that way .
Will they do that in the future ? probably. Enough said

4.0 out of 5 stars mono remasters sound as the 87 edition, 15 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Beatles In Mono (Audio CD)
"Please Please Me" has been always one of my best loved beatle LP, but the new remaster sounds exactly the same as the 1987 edition in my hifi system.
So, why the expensive price?,
why not the stereo mix and the mono mix in the same CD?
I have to give only one star for the remaster
The music has five stars and more!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars You cannot be serious!, 4 Sep 2009
By 
This review is from: The Beatles In Mono (Audio CD)
Who in their right mind would want to listen to albums like Sgt Pepper & Revolver in MONO!?? The Bealtes and George Martin were innovators with the Stereo format. This is an outrageous package specifically aimed at fanatic collectors who don't know better and WILL buy this nonsense. It's disgraceful.
