Absolute gem in stereo,
This review is from: With The Beatles (Audio CD)
"With the Beatles" was the first LP I bought way back in December 1963. And of course it was in magnificent mono! When I began to replace my Beatles LPs with CDs in the 1990s I was disappointed that the first four albums (including "With the Beatles" were only available in mono. With the release of the remastered versions in September of this year, I was overjoyed to find that ALL the albums were now available in stereo.
And what a gem this album is in stereo.
The songs are still great - it seemed that "It Won't Be Long" was on Two Way Family Favourites every Sunday, the Rolling Stones covered "I Wanna Be Your Man", but the song people seemed to rave about was "All My Loving". All these sound even better now they are in stereo. But my personal favourites in stereo when compared with the mono versions are:-
"Money" which is RAW, and has a different mix
"Please Mr Postman" which is my favourite from the album and
"Roll Over Beethoven" which definitely sounds totally different in the stereo mix.
A gound breaking album (for its time) which used the same formula as "Please Please Me" but included no singles so was excellent value for money.
My only criticism - perhaps the singles ("She Loves You/I'll Get You" and "I Want To Hold Your Hand/This Boy") could have been included as bonus tracks, together with "One after 909" from Anthology I.

If they included those songs, then it wouldn't be 'With TheBeatles'.
