Great collection uses September 2009 masters,
This review is from: 1962-1966 [The Red Album] (Audio CD)
For Beatles fanatics, Record Collector magazine have stated that this release uses the September 2009 masters, in case you were wondering whether the music had been remastered again!
Enough has already been said about this timeless collection of great Beatles tracks and the even superior 1967-70 blue album. This is a better investment than the 1 album if you are a casual Beatles fan (do they exist!!!) or a younger newcomer to the Beatles. Buy this though and you will probably want everything they have ever released - a lifetime joy and addiction to the greatest band the world has ever seen. As time goes by it also appears that we will never experience the like of the Beatles again. So many boundaries broken through and so much creativity it is one long ecstatic trip! How did they get to be so good? Have a read of Ian Macdonald's "Revolutiuon in the head" for plausible reasons why the 60's were the pivot on which the modern world emerged and how the Beatles and their genius are representative and attuned to the upheavels/transitions that have altered the world radically and forever.
