4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds better than ever, 40 years on., 12 Mar. 2012
By 
This review is from: 1967-1970 [The Blue Album] (Audio CD)
So is it worth spending money on yet another release of familiar but classic music that first saw the light of day over 40 years ago. Well the answer is yes because the technology is available now to make it all sound so fresh and clear, even when compared to the previous CD releases.
It is when comparisons are made to the original vinyl records that came out in the 1960's that the difference in sound quality becomes noticeable. I should know because I bought most of the Beatles albums and singles the first time round, in a lot of cases on the day of release. The original 1970 Apple Records vinyl Let It Be album is a case in point, being muffled and tinny despite being in stereo. The tracks from that original release have now been re-mastered for this collection and the audio quality is now that much better.
It is close to impossible for anyone who was not around in the 60's to really understand the huge and lasting impact that The Beatles made at the time, not just on popular music but also in culture and social attitudes. Their influence was only matched by that made by Elvis a few years earlier. This album and it's companion Red 1962-66 set will go some way to explaining everything.
