Deal alert / The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band / 2CD deluxe

If you didn’t pick up last year’s Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band box set, then the 2CD set is probably the next best option, especially since there has been a big price drop in the UK.

This set offers Giles Martin’s very good new stereo mix on CD one and then an 18-track bonus disc of Pepper alternate takes, early versions and instrumentals, the 2015 stereo remix of Strawberry Fields Forever and a new 2017 stereo remix of Penny Lane. This is a landmark album and a landmark reissue and this double-disc set (with a 60-page booklet) is a snip at just £9.99 (previously around £17).

    You’re better to get the Super Deluxe version as it contains the original mono mix. The unique mono mix is the definitive version of one of the greatest albums of all time. The Beatles were directly involved in this one and, as it was the priority mix for them in 1967, is the one presented as the artists intended and a true reflection of the greatest band of all time at their majestic peak. Plus the Super Deluxe version has a treasure trove of outtakes…

  2. Ann Coates says:

    I’ve got this on CD but was going to get vinyl too. The new remix is available as the 2LP version and the picture disc. I read somewhere that the sound quality of the picture disc is inferior – is this true? Thanks.

  3. MARK LEVY says:

    I still find it rather odd, the way Parlophone as a label is now owned by Warner Music and yet when it comes to the Beatles back catalogue which is now owned by Universal, its unavoidable to release the early stuff using the Parlophone print. Perhaps it would have been better bringing back the Odeon label for the early 60s stuff.

  4. Simon says:

    That didn’t last long – £16.95 on Amazon UK when I clicked through on the £9.99 link…

  5. StevieB says:

    Off to HMV for this version on Tuesday…thanks Paul.

  6. Paul Taylor says:

    How much of disc 2 is on the Anthologies? I already have them and felt this might be duplication

    • Mike the Fish says:

      Not much. The Anthology Pepper tracks are largely composite takes as I recall. The slow Strawberry Fields finishes properly on this one rather than with the fast version’s drum track tacked on over the fade, for example.

  7. London Rob says:

    Just got it an hmv with click and collect store pick up, so no delivery charges.
    Really pleased.
    I’ve only got it on the mono version box set, so will be really interesting to compare the mono to the new stereo.
    Very grateful for the heads up

  8. DON in Ohio says:

    Already up to $17.25 on amazon.com. It was cheaper for me to buy it from the UK and have it shipped to the US!

  9. Kauwgompie says:

    What happened to the “This Week’s New Releases” blog entry that you always post on Monday? Been looking for it all day.

  10. Andrew M says:

    It’s really only the 5.1 mix I’m interested in and that’s not gonna come separately :(

    But the new stereo mix is excellent, so a great deal!

    • vikerii says:

      Agree about the new stereo mix! I was shocked on how well they made it sound, giving it real stereo life. I’m hoping they are doing the same with “The White Album” this year.

  11. Mark R says:

    Done! I have the vinyl edition but not the outtakes. Plus it’s always handy to have a copy for the car!
