    Preordered, a no brainer at this price given I haven’t got any of the content in those mixes. Can even live with getting vinyl (got over that one with the Fmac SDEs which I couldn’t resist). To put it in context, the Macca FITD is still £135 on Amazon UK for the same number of CDs FFS.

    A good(ish) price I suppose for digital formats but can’t see the point for analogue aficionados in having something in mono.

    • Howie says:

      You are right, totally pointless. Don’t know why I bought The Beatles in Mono Boxset now, might see if I can swap it for the stereo one.

      • Mark Phillips says:

        This is a post for people who just don’t understand the “point” of these mono releases.

        In the UK especially, until the mid to late 60s everything was mastered for mono, often carefully mixing 3 or 4 tracks down to one.

        In the case of the Fab Four all of their albums were mixed and mastered in mono all the way up to the White Album.

        The group would spend a lot of time on the mono mix, and, in the case of Sgt Pepper, it’s got more overdubs which simply aren’t there on the stereo mix, and there’s an overall harder sound.

        When it came to the stereo mix, they just asked the engineers to sort it out as an afterthought, so most were panned hard right and hard left, and no mixing or balancing was done at all.

        Please take out that mono copy of Sgt Pepper and play it. I’ll be amazed if you can’t hear why the mono mix is superior in every way!

        Still not convinced? Seek out The Hollies King Midas In Reverse and compare the properly mixed mono single version with the stereo mix. In stereo the orchestra doesn’t mix into the track – it stands apart and sounds, well, odd. The mono mix ties it all together into a glorious bombastic riot!

        Sometime Mono is just the stereo tracks folded down to one, and in that case I agree that mono is superfluous, but if it was made in mono first, that’s the mix to hear.

        Happy to provide a couple of tracks for you to compare.

    Happy New Year to you Paul & many thanks for that. Just Ordered 3 CD’s & LP Bargain.

    Oh why was the LP included? Should of been separate maybe with its own sterewo and mono mixes and live album.
